Site planning and analysis for the Douglas Hall renovation looked closely at the circulation patterns, student needs, sustainable objectives, and the owner’s conceptual goals to lay the framework for the site development. The intimate courtyard framed by the three lecture halls is transformed into an exterior collaborative work environment through custom seatwalls, a central landscape bed, permeable pavement, and a specialty entry paving design that tie into the building’s interior finishes.
