UpStudio Landscapes is providing landscape architectural design services for the new Workforce Development and Training Center located at the Community College of Allegheny County’s Allegheny Campus. Working closely with Desmone Architects, the project lead, and Sci-Tek Consultants, the landscape integrates the new facility within the Allegheny West neighborhood and existing campus.
The landscape design creates a central campus lawn surrounded by ADA accessible walkways which unify surrounding buildings including Milton Hall, the Campus Library and Foerster Student Services Center. The central open space is unique to the urban campus and will provide flexible green space that provides opportunities for programming and socialization. Patios immediately adjacent to the facility entrances create spaces for gathering and outdoor classroom learning.
