Logan University
Chesterfield, MO

Gateway Design Studio teamed with Ittner Architects for this project to provide hardscape, landscape and irrigation design documents for a proposed redevelopment of an existing campus of Logan University which includes a new Academic Building, Science Building addition, new parking lot, campus plaza improvements, a bio-retention basin and wet storm water detention basin.

The scope of work encompassed approximately 7.5 acres of disturbed area within the 102 acre property. The Logan campus highlights a park-like environment of large trees, open fields and several lake features. One of the objectives of the site redevelopment is to preserve as much as possible of the natural setting by recommending methods of tree preservation and limited grading and disturbance. The plan also calls for extensive tree planting to establish the future canopy on campus. Further improvements include redesign of the campus core plaza with open seating, new plantings and pavement designs.  

RECOMMENDATIONS

Project goals included developing a sustainable landscape with use of native plant material to the region and low flow irrigation design to the lawn and planting areas. Hardscape plaza areas were developed for pedestrian flow and gathering spaces for students and teachers to enjoy.
