Students attending Tulane University are in for a treat with the recent completion of The Commons, a 77,000-square-foot, three-story, state-of-the-art eatery, study area and event space located in the heart of campus.

The vision behind the iconic building was to design a forward-thinking, multi-functional space that would reflect the three prominent university intersections on the site where The Commons stands. The modern, angular design adds to Tulane’s appealing aesthetic while offering students and faculty members a place to dine and socialize, along with event space, offices, study areas, and an open-air courtyard. YKK AP America’s YHC 300 SSG Cassette Curtain Wall meets impact requirements for the coastal region, while providing its slim sightlines enhance the look of the building.

Open space and floor-to-ceiling curtain wall is featured throughout the building to provide views of New Orleans as well as the regal oak trees that line the lush quad on Tulane’s campus.

The end result is a stunning addition to Tulane University that will attract the best and brightest students and faculty members from around the world.
