Oates Associates prepared two conceptual landscape plans for two dormitory buildings located at Summerfield and Alton Street in Lebanon, Illinois on the McKendree University campus. The dormitories are two separate three-story wings connected by a two-story bridge. Landscaping around the buildings features trees, shrubbery and plantings, and open and shaded lawn areas. The landscape accentuates the façades of the architecture and creates focal points for prominent architectural walls. The landscape design is focused on low maintenance plant material that brings beauty to the campus throughout the academic year. Outdoor seating areas, a donor garden and gathering spaces in the landscape creates programmable spaces for students living in the dorms.
