UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH
Housing freshman men and women, the 560-bed, mixed-use facility retains commercial space on the first floor; houses the University Wellness Center on the second floor; and is topped with eight residence halls. The design establishes residential communities of 30 students, sharing common lounges, studies and restroom facilities. MCF was responsible for the design of the campus-wide Wellness Center and was the associate architect for Mackey Mitchell Architects of St. Louis, MO, the acting architect of record.

MCF has completed a variety of private residences. The project displayed was inspired by Mediterranean living. These residences incorporate outdoor spaces and vistas providing an integration of inside and outside. The integrity of the homes reside in their stately proportions and richness of detail.
Sts. Louis & Elizabeth Residence Hall
Sts. Louis and Elizabeth Hall is the first new living space constructed on the main campus of Franciscan University of Steubenville in nearly 10 years. The 180 bed, three-story structure, features separate wings for men and women. Each wing provides private restrooms, study rooms, laundry facilities and lounge space. The main entry connector provides common, mixed-gender spaces such as a large living room, dining area, group study spaces, and a chapel. MCF designed the structure to complement the style of surrounding buildings on campus.

Proposed North Campus
CLEVELAND STATE UNIVERSITY
A mixed use of residential and commercial buildings blended into the urban fabric, was proposed for the North Campus Neighborhood at Cleveland State University. The new development was aimed to turn existing commuter parking lots into a vibrant residential area for students, teachers and the City of Cleveland. Made up of three city blocks, the mixed-use community was to include private residences, a baseball field, multiple parking garages, and approximately 40,000 square feet of retail, which would be closely linked with the University. The project is currently awaiting funding.
