UVA Aquatic & Fitness Center Courtyard

HG Design Studio recently designed an update for this outdoor terrace to provide a safer, more functional and inviting space. HG provided both civil engineering and landscape architecture to improve pedestrian hardscapes, stormwater drainage, planting design, and pedestrian lighting. The project scope included connection to the existing hardscape that serves the main entrance and café, as well as design grading and review of drainage solutions in order to ensure a cohesive overall courtyard design that reflects the current UVA design aesthetic and compliments the existing building.
