2711 Shattuck

Located just south of Downtown Berkeley, 2711 Shattuck is a 22-unit building that will serve as housing for students of UC Berkeley. The project is at the forefront of prefabricated modular steel construction, and will be the first to be built using this technology in the US. Each living module is an efficient micro-unit, with thoughtfully designed interiors, ample storage, and large operable windows. The building's warm palette includes materials such as wood panels and perforated corten steel that will help make the building a place for students to call home. Amenities include a backyard and a car-share space for the residents' convenience.
