This "New Dorm" was designed to fit into the Fountain Valley School's rich history of Southwest style architecture, while offering clean, light-filled spaces for students and faculty.

Sustainability, economy and quality of living were the school's primary objectives. The design incorporates classic Southwest style motifs while providing an energy-efficient model for the school's future development.

New Dorm was broken into three buildings, each with 8 dorm rooms and a faculty apartment. The light-filled common room includes a kitchenette and a study loft. The dorms were laid out among mature trees, giving the complex a timeless feel.
