Type: Renovation
Project Size: Garage: 24,299 SF / Roof Plaza: 40,504 SF
In response to student requests for more open space on campus, Schenley Quadrangle was transformed from a service vehicle access point into a pedestrian-friendly plaza where students can study, socialize, and enjoy the outdoors. WTW Architects developed a program to repair structural deterioration of the quad and activate the space for student life.

The renovation added trees and grassy areas, benches, cafe tables and chairs, and a raised platform that can function as a stage for performances or ceremonies. 

A phased construction strategy minimized disruption to surrounding residence halls and the project was completed during summer 2018.
