#30BestOfBWA Global Scholars Hall at WSU

By | 30BestofBWA, Architecture, BWA30Years, News | No Comments

#30BestOfBWA Completed in 2015, the Global Scholars Hall Phase II is a signature student residence for Washington State University. This design-build project is a five-story dormitory, with associated common areas and decks, and dedicated community and commercial ground-floor spaces. Four levels containing 133 dwelling units of varying types—totaling 276 beds—are over a second-level podium. On the fifth floor, a unique series of seven “apartment-style” units along a single-loaded corridor features outdoor decks with views to the courtyard below. The team developed a phased site logistics plan to illustrate how construction materials and equipment were to be staged, key access and egress points, and how construction activities would be conducted to mitigate the impact on the student population. Bernardo Wills Architects provided the full suite of services on this project, including landscape and interior design in addition to architectural design.

University of Idaho 7th Street Improvement Project Update

By | Architecture, Construction, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

One of our landscape architects got to visit the University of Idaho last week and see our 7th Street Improvement project. It is still awaiting final completion but looked great with the plum trees in bloom. The goal of this project was to create a pedestrian mall here on 7th Street, which is the beginning of campus tours, and match the branding and character of the rest of the campus. Go, Vandals!

John J. Hemmingson Center at Gonzaga University – Go Zags!

By | Interior Design, News | No Comments

As we celebrate our Zags this week, we would like to highlight one of our favorite projects at Gonzaga University. The central design objective of the John J. Hemmingson Center project was to create a signature building to serve as a focal “place of gathering and learning” for both the on-campus and off-campus Gonzaga community. The 167,726 square-foot, four-level facility is located on the eastern edge of campus and includes multi-level, multi-venue dining, a pub, an 800-person, multi-purpose gathering place, various retail areas, student clubs, and University programs, and a 200-person auditorium/theater. The Center is a major hub for socializing, dining, academics, and services for the Gonzaga community. #GoZags
