Kripper Studio to Design Improvements for Northeastern University Campus 

Northeastern University has hired Kripper Studio to design improvements for West Village G, including student residences, shared amenity spaces, classrooms, the main entrance, and other access points. The project aims to elevate the quality of students’ experience and provide a sense of community, with a focus on achieving better energy efficiency and incorporating new security features.  

“This is an opportunity to do something cool and interesting as the students’ standards and expectations have changed and Northeastern is committed to raising the bar,” said Amir Kripper, founding principal of Kripper Studio. “Study habits, campus residence life and study-life balance have evolved and the importance of the surrounding built environment can truly contribute to and support inclusivity, health and well being.” 

The project is expected to complete by late summer 2023, in time for the fall semester. West Village G is part of the West Village master plan, which has received multiple architectural awards and accolades.
