Bowdoin College

STIMSON has completed several projects at Bowdoin College in the past two years. Renovations to the Bricks, historic dormitories, involved the creation of threshold gardens sited at the edge of the main quad. Nearby, at Moulton Union, the main dining commons, a series of new terraces and seat walls transformed a previously sunken area that suffered from drainage problems into an accessible gathering space for outdoor eating. The College Street corridor, also completed this summer, uses a language of granite bollards, crosswalks and raised speed tables in order to slow the car and reclaim the pedestrian zone. Salvaged stone, rustic granite and woodland plants used throughout these projects contribute to the character and identity of this distinctly “Maine” campus.
