RAS led the design and construction documentation for the interior exhibit design in the newly constructed conservatory at University of Wisconsin at Stephens Point (UWSP). The house will be used as an educational resource for the students of the botany program at UWSP.
The house will maintain a climatic zone in which both permanent and changeable tropical –sub tropical plant displays can be exhibited. Our scope of work included refining the programming for the collections and displays, lighting, providing accessible visitor circulation in the exhibit space, and developing designs for a three tiered water feature, bog garden, rock outcrops and display elements such as an epiphyte tree, and a green wall.
Throughout the project, our approach was a collaborative effort with both UWSP representatives and Montgomery Smith Incorporated; Greenhouse and Conservatory Design.
