Our work on the Heavener Hall, UF School of Business emphasizes the building’s important location within the Historic District of the campus. We collaborated with the architectural team and the University on the design of a new Gateway at University Avenue and 13th Street, an outdoor courtyard framed by Heavener and Bryan Hall, an outdoor dining café/courtyard entry, and all other landscape design surrounding the building.
The Gateway is situated at the intersection of University Avenue and 13th Street. Throughout the history of the University of Florida, this corner of the campus has served as an important entry to the University. The seal of the University sits in front of this cast iron, stone, and brick entrance into the University of Florida Campus. The angular shape of the pilasters reflect the Heavener Hall structure as well as the historic brick and limestone buildings throughout the campus. Today, hundreds of pedestrians cross University Avenue or 13th Street as they enter the campus.
