St. John’s University – St. Augustine Plaza

Langan developed the design for a new 8,000-SF plaza in front of Saint Augustine Hall, a significant social hub on the Queens campus. Langan also designed the site lighting for the plaza and low-level bollard lighting in the dining areas. Langan developed the architectural lighting, accentuating the limestone and schist building facade and illuminated the large bronze university emblem hanging above the entrance to St. Augustine Hall. Project challenges included existing utility issues, the preservation of specimen trees during construction and work phasing to allow the building entrance to remain operational during construction.
