This project entailed the renovation of the First Street corridor between Bell Memorial Union and Salem Street, extending into the lawn in front of Trinity Hall and down Normal and Chestnut Streets to Second Street. The existing areas did not provide a sense of pedestrian scale, or opportunity for gathering and seating areas within a shaded setting. Williams + Paddon's design continues the cadence of landscape, pedestrian luminaires, site furnishings and hardscape previously developed (also by Williams + Paddon) at the adjacent Student Services Center Plaza. These improvements combine to create a more humble, human scale to the pedestrian movements through the Campus. Additionally, comprehensive utility upgrades including the provision for future utility needs for future campus building projects.
