WPA and Dills Architects teamed up to pursue the new Brown Hall Math and Mass Communications Building at Norfolk State University and we found out yesterday that we were selected to do the job! We are honored to be awarded this important project and can’t wait to get to work with Dills and our other amazing consultants: Speight, Marshall & Francis, P.C.; Pace Collaborative; Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB); the Sextant Group, Inc.; G E T Solutions, Inc.; Sustainable Design Consulting, LLC; Forella Group, LLC; and Setty & Associates, Ltd. Go team!
Schematic design is coming to a close, and there are a couple elements worth noting: sun shading/privacy slats on all faces, a revised roof strategy for roof deck access, and internal stairs for both units from the south and east garages.
The College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Norfolk State University will be building a 1500 square foot greenhouse on campus. WPA is teaming up with Rough Brothers to design and build this sustainable structure. The greenhouse will be in a courtyard with directed paths for students to engage and explore the local plant life. We’ve found some great precedent images and are really excited to work alongside of Rough Bros!
