LSG Landscape Architecture prepared landscape and hardscape plans for Marymount University’s 26th Street project. This LEED Certified project includes a 52,000-square-foot academic building focused on the sciences and health sciences, a residence hall that provides suite-style housing for 239 students, and outdoor gathering spaces, all built above four levels of underground parking.
The outdoor gathering spaces include plaza spaces between the academic building and residence hall, three entry courts and a plaza space on the main campus which connects the two campuses via an overhead bridge. The main plaza features a unique paving pattern made of stone and concrete unit pavers. The free-flowing pattern connects the two entry courts on either side of the plaza and creates an interesting feature for this otherwise confined space. A statue of Sr. Majella Berg, past president of Marymount, provides a focal point for the front entry plaza space.
LSG helped the client raise money for the project through a paver and site furnishings donor program.
