Curry College Student Center with New England Stone: Photo & Video Feature

Curry College Student Center: 
The Living Room of Campus

Boston Blend Round natural New England stone interior fireplace and court yard sitting walls

Located in Milton, MA, Curry College is a private liberal arts-based institution situated on a wooded 131-acre campus. A Student Center was built with the intention of centralizing student activities which were previously spread across the vast campus. Multiple dining areas, a cozy fireplace, comfortable seating, sports lounge, game room, and much more have given the center its nickname, "the living room of campus".

As you approach the Curry College Student Center, you are greeted by a welcoming courtyard. Complete with sitting and retaining walls faced with natural stone and topped by a grassy knoll. This summer study area is complete with New England native materials, tying the space in with the natural surroundings. Boston Blend Round was used extensively as an exterior wall facing and on stair columns and sides.

Next, as you enter this hub of activity you are welcomed by a warming double sided fireplace and natural stone feature. The same Boston Blend Round was used on the interior space continuing the project theme. The depth and texture of this New England stone reveals a calm and inviting home away from home for all students.

The Curry College Student Center is located in the heart of campus and designed to attract the interests of all students. The outstanding view and unique architecture it provides are an added bonus. Students truly believe this new center has been a great addition to their campus, uniting everyone together under one roof.

I just love the stone wall siding on that fireplace. It would be cool to do that to the interior of my home. Currently, my home has the standard white walls that are sort of boring. With rock siding like this, it could liven up my living room.

My wife and I are looking for a new siding that we can put on our house. I am researching and looking at different settings to see which one I think is going to look best on our house. I really like the stone siding in these pictures and I think it would look great in our house. Thanks for posting this blog and sharing these pictures. http://www.berkeleyexteriors.com/siding-0/
