The new Southwest Campus of the University of California Los Angeles provides much needed housing for 1,380 graduate students. Courtyard housing and street-level, walk-up townhomes concealing partial subterranean parking garages are influenced by traditional southern California residential prototypes. An arched breezeway leads to the central courtyard of each building. The project’s Spanish Colonial style responds to the original design guidelines of historic Westwood Village. Classical styling and a quad with lawns and palm plaza mark the center of the project, contrasting with the vernacular style and informal landscape elsewhere. Wood and wrought-iron balconies, tile and plaster detailing add visual interest throughout.

UCLA Southwest Campus Housing Phasing Plan

The project had a budget of 130 million dollars. To increase the bid pool, the project was broken into smaller scopes of work. Also to expedite the schedule, the project was phased into Phase I for Site grading and Infrastructure, Phase II comprised of building construction and rough site work, and Phase III allowing for finish grading and landscaping.
