Description
This women's dormitory was the first of the campus residence halls to be completed, and Maybeck was relatively free to use both traditional and modern materials throughout. This three-story building sets the manorial scale for the residences, and it is especially rich in its combined use of concrete, stone, half-timber, and brick, the whole framed in structural steel. He even included a concrete roof on the steel frame, with concrete and roofing tile flowing softly around steel-framed dormers and over fluid eaves. The interior includes a fine Gothic stairway and hallways that evoke a mood of mystery. http://www.principia.edu/maybeck/build/howard.htm
