The Buckeye Village Community Center at the Ohio State University provides housing, childcare facilities and a community center for single parents who are also full-time students. The shared community courtyard, wide street-like corridors and abundance of windows make the building welcoming and comfortable for its residents. Also, varying ceiling heights within the building creates unique interior spaces for both children and adults.
