The Academy Street Dining and Residence (now Cesar Rodney Dining Hall) site is a critical element within the University of Delaware campus, linking East Campus to Central Campus and the Historic Green's formal structure. The challenge was to fluidly incorporate a large dining hall serving new residential buildings into the historic and formal landscape. The design team's solution was to extend the landscape over the dining hall and tie in residential units from the rooftop Green. The design integrates sustainability and preservation, as the Green extends over the roof of the dining hall and cascades down to Academy Street, both masking the dining hall's large volume and lending unique elements to the rapidly growing University of Delaware campus. Studio Bryan Hanes, located in Philadelphia, creates socially and ecologically sustainable spaces where natural and cultural systems are shown deference by design. The studio is modeled on an interactive academic design process that emphasizes exploration, experimentation and meaningful collaboration. Since 2008, Studio Bryan Hanes has developed a portfolio of communal spaces, parks and museums that express practicality and yield places with social purpose and integrity. The studio offers landscape architectural services including master planning, design, construction oversight and stakeholder and community engagement. Founding principal Bryan Hanes and four design staff comprise the studio.
