Our involvement over the last 15 years as landscape architect and site designer has helped University Village become one of the premier village retail centers in the country.
Through thoughtful understanding of site circulation, retail needs, event infrastructure, natural systems and placemaking, HEWITT helped create a framework for successful public spaces including courtyards, walkways and water features within the Village. Working towards this success, we mind the balance between the need for site organization and wayfinding with serendipity and delight for users of all ages.
We designed plazas and streetscapes with a diversity of site amenities to bring an accommodating scale and variety to the pedestrian experience. These spaces are activated by visitors young and old and include interactive water features, weather protection, seating, al fresco dining, specialty lighting, and lush landscaping.
