LSG Landscape Architecture provided landscape architectural services to Gensler Architecture and Boston Properties for a new office building near Franconia Springfield Metro Station in Virginia for the Transportation Security Administration’s Headquarters.
LSG was involved from conceptual design, entitlement all the way to the construction phase. The project was completed and fully occupied by Dec 2020. LSG’s involvement was focused on the design of the entrance plaza and arrival sequence along the North facing public entrance of the project as well as the arrival plaza for employees on the other side of the building.
Additionally, in coordination with security experts, LSG assisted with integration of elaborate security requirements in the site design. Security measures included K12 barriers, fences, gates, cameras and a specific vehicular circulation pattern for employees, visitors and services, etc. LSG’s focus was to integrate the security measures necessary without compromising the welcoming, friendly and visually pleasing appearance expected for TSA Headquarters.
