Florence Moore Hall (or “FloMo”) consists of seven separate houses – some all-frosh, and some upperclass - that radiate from a central dining servery. Built on a hillside near White Plaza, Tresidder Student Union, and Lake Lagunita, FloMo is perhaps best known for the wall-to-wall windows in each room and for the up to eight flavors of ice cream served at every meal.
Designed by Milton Pflueger, head of California’s oldest architectural firm, Florence Moore Hall was deliberately built to be asymmetrical. The often-recounted story is that Florence Moore, who donated $1 million for the residence, provided the money on the condition that ice cream be served each day in the dining halls. She also specified that closets in each room accommodate a woman’s formal gown. Florence Moore’s husband, Robert S. Moore, joined her in having a residence named after him - the Row house called Robert S. Moore South or, more commonly, BOB.
