While a Principal with another firm, Pam Shadley worked on two projects at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. First known as the Environmental Technology Building, Gregg Hall was designed to assist the University in its efforts to provide innovative solutions to national environmental problems through state-of-the-art research. It is the first new building in the university’s “West Campus”, which was made accessible with a new railroad underpass. The landscape at Gregg Hall supports its academic mission: there are extensive new meadows, native plantings, and encouragement of early woodland succession. In addition, lawn areas are limited to the front entrance and picnic area, and the large adjacent wetland is protected and appreciated.
Holloway Commons is a new dining hall in the center of campus. Its tall structure is a landmark and encourages the vertical connection between Main Street and the Memorial Union Building’s main entrance, several floors up. The landscape around this new building is comprised of many native species that display their attributes to the students in the 800-seat dining area. A bus stop at the front of the building encourages access to Holloway Commons.
