The design team of Mahlum and New-York based architecture and interior design firm TenBerke has been selected for the replacement of the Haggett Hall student dormitory at the University of Washington's Seattle Campus.

The project will replace an existing 730-bed dormitory, built in 1963, with a new approximately 200,000-square-foot, 800-bed, student residence.

Mahlum and TenBerke's design will include community and wellness spaces and is targeting a minimum of LEED Gold Certification.

The new residence hall will be delivered through an integrated design-build process. Andersen is the general contractor and will demolish the old building before building the new one. Demolition should begin next summer and the team is targeting completion in 2027. The estimated total cost for the new Haggett Hall is $165 million.

Mahlum and TenBerke will seek student feedback throughout the design process. TenBerke says a robust student engagement process is currently underway. This is TenBerke's first project on the West Coast.

The original Haggett Hall is a somewhat brutalist structure built of reinforced concrete. It consists of two towers with hexagonal shaped dormitory rooms, each of double occupancy. UW first announced plans to demolish and replace the dormitory in 2014. Haggett Hall was designed by Seattle architectural firm Kirk, Wallace and McKinley, which designed several campus buildings in the 1960s. When it opened, Haggett Hall was the first co-educational residence hall on the campus.
