WMC-LA was a part of the design team for this six story, 250,000 sq ft, 878 bed residential facility for undergraduate students at Howard University. The site is centrally located at Howard University Campus on 4th Street between Bryant and College Street, NW.
WMC-LA Landscape Architecture completed full landscape services for the new dorm facility. The streetscape was designed with pedestrian flow and safety, and green infrastructure in mind. The project included a courtyard on the backside of the facility to serve student life. A patio space with planters and integrated lighting and seating, and a lawn panel serves as extensions of the interior spaces and contains a large rain garden that treats over half of the new facilities roof surface.
