In 2008-2009, Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire constructed two new residence halls to house more of its students on campus. Pondside III offers residence suites in a variety of configurations for students to share living space with friends or a special interest group.

The bold modern design is a composition of stone and brick residence wings intersected by transparent common areas, visible from inside and out.

These gathering areas include study spaces, a game room, and a shared kitchen to accommodate organized activities and foster unexpected interactions.

Pondside III achieved LEED Silver certification through diligent planning and rigorous documentation of its sustainable design features during design and construction administration.
