Myles Standish Hall is undergoing an extensive renovation to bring the building up to date. Copley Wolff Design Group is providing landscape architectural design services for the streetscape and a new pocket park/gateway.
The scope of work includes the replacement of sidewalks and trees and the design of a triangular-shaped pocket park that connects to the interior student lounge and provides a shaded outdoor space for interaction and a safer east-west passage for students and the public. The site will contain strategically placed bike racks, trash and recycling units, site furnishing, signage, lighting and seasonal planting. The paving will consist of permeable pavers to mitigate water runoff and recharge the ground water table.
