US Navy Bachelors’ Enlisted Quarters and Mess Hall

The chief design consideration of the Naval B.E.Q. project was interaction. The quarters themselves consist of three separate multi-story buildings housing a total of eighty-two men. Within the buildings there exists inter-related clusters of rooms as well as single rooms. Visual continuity between the three units is further enhanced by the exterior promenade on both levels, complete with fire escapes, which surround all three buildings. The mess hall is designed to be rugged and utilitarian.
