NCSU Talley Student Union
Raleigh, NC

The new Talley Student Center is an exciting building renovation and expansion to the main campus at N.C. State University. The building and exterior spaces embrace the history and context of the campus and bring the University solidly into a new era. ColeJenest & Stone worked closely with the University and design team to provide design, construction documentation and construction administration services for this complex signature project. The facility will house the University Bookstore, Stewart Theater, dining facilities, offices and meeting rooms, and function as the hub of student life. The landscape design reflects the University’s goals of making Talley a nexus of pedestrian connectivity for the main campus and providing a variety of student gathering spaces.

The site also provides a sloping central green space for major campus events with a variety of outdoor dining and social experiences wich links the building to key campus pedestrian paths. The building features three areas of extensive green roofs with durable, drought-tolerant plants to reduce stormwater runoff, insulate the building and provide an educational and aesthetic component for users. The site incorporates a large cistern to recycle rainwater for irrigation and the rain gardens treat stormwater before discharge. The plan uses a sustainable planting design with a rich mix of native and adapted plant varieties. Paving patterns in the landscape were carefully selected to closely relate to the interior and exterior details of the building and seamlessly blend with surrounding campus spaces and materials.
