Lumos & Associates provided landscape architectural design services for this recently completed dormitory project at Sierra and 11th Streets. The initial planning for the hall included conceptual outdoor spaces, planter and walkway layouts. Planning was focused on the creation of a variety of outdoor spaces for student studying, eating, relaxing, play and circulation to other areas on campus. A small quad with lawn area and surrounding concrete stairs/seat walls was planned for multi-purpose and special events. The quad establishes a high quality, attractive and comfortable campus setting. The inclusion of plant material that conforms to UNR standards for attractive but low maintenance plants and mulches was utilized. Planting in the quad was completed in formal rows radiating from two central points. Large oak and maple tree species were selected to articulate the desired Jeffersonian theme that the UNR campus was modeled after. Benches, bike racks, and bollard lights were placed to encourage student interaction and make the area safe and useable during the evening hours.
