Vanguard Lionville Campus
Project Architect: Pablo Meninato
Location: Exton, PA
Program: Campus Master Plan & Phase 1
Phase 1: 440,000 sq.ft.
Status: on hold
The proposed Vanguard campus site is located between the Pennsylvania turnpike extension and route 100, close to Exton. Buildings and landscapes are designed to communicate the institution's purpose, presence and domain as well as generate a friendly atmosphere.
The master plan describes the capability for future growth and development of the campus and a new system of pedestrian-oriented open spaces. Multiple issues were considered, including transportation, services, building layout, landscaping and parking. A township requisite was to preserve the existing farm structures and the wetlands, which were incorporated into the overall design.
Phase 1 will include the first two office buildings together with their correspondent parking structures, and the overall roadway system and landscape layout.
