The purpose of Campuscape is to improve the overall physical facilities and spaces to reflect the St. Edward's University mission, values and master planning standards by providing recommendations, guidelines and feedback for procurement of materials and products that work well together aesthetically and functionally.
Why is it important?
The guidelines will support the philosophy that “everything speaks.” The quality of our public spaces matters. These spaces are expressions of St. Edward’s University’s mission and the guidelines will foster a consistent and high-quality experience across campus.
The following objectives have been identified for the design and implementation of new Campuscape items.
Consistency and Identifiability
To create a consistent, identifiable, and organized image amongst interior elements of buildings on campus, while maintaining the comfortable, intimate atmosphere currently found at St. Edward’s.
Reduction of Clutter
To implement standards that reduce visual clutter and distraction, and which will enhance the visibility of important elements and information within each building.
Reinforcement of Community
To introduce interior elements that help to create welcoming interior public spaces that promote a sense of community and social interaction among visitors, students, faculty and staff.
Reinforcement of Campus Character
To promote this consistent visual identity, while still allowing for distinctions between the variety of historical building types found across campus.
Durability and Function
To select interior elements that are durable, functional, maintenance-friendly, and meet all standards for ADA and other regulatory compliance.
