Commissioned to master plan and implement several renovations, add new buildings, and reconfigure the site, we began this project with a comprehensive master plan.
What was a design challenge of campus circulation with a remote building location became an opportunity to enhance the site users' experience.
With security the driving factor in the design, the building is defined by its civic quality. With a design directive that the building could not have a greater presence than the existing structures, the design is contextually related to the existing campus, in a supporting role.
The only available area for construction of the new office building was on the campus's far west side. We developed a landscape network to connect the new office building to the existing offices through the relocation of inner campus roadways.
