Six buildings in Escondido Village accommodate 834 graduate students in single-person and couples without children studio apartments.

Award-winning architect Daniel Solomon worked with MBT Architecture of San Francisco and James Guthrie & Associates of San Mateo to design Stanford’s six studio buildings. The first two opened in 2000; Studios 4-6 opened in 2002-2004.

Solomon, known for his leadership in the urban design movement, is a founding member of and wrote the charter for the Chicago-based Congress for the New Urbanism. Designed the studios on a design ethos that integrates urbanism with environmental sensitivity.

Solomon’s approach to designing EV’s Studios follows the theory that neighborhoods should be diverse in use and population, communities should be designed for pedestrians as well as cars, buildings should be universally accessible, and architecture and landscape design should celebrate local history, climate, ecology, and building traditions.
