Henry Klein served as the Architect of Record for Nash Hall; Folke Nyberg Associates collaborated on site planning and design of Nash and Mathes Halls at WWSC. Nyberg specifically contributed to the facade design and fenestration of this residence hall, hoping that ample lighting would "de-institutionalize" the project. George Wallace worked as an independent design associate with the Nyberg Office on the interior of these two designs.

This dormitory and Mathes Hall won an urban design award c. 1967.
