As a multi-disciplinary firm, WithersRavenel has built its skills and business around crafting memorable, livable places unique to each community, and our pedestrian-friendly and aesthetically pleasing street corridor designs are no exception. By combining roadway and intersection improvements with amenity design, we transform ordinary streets into gateways using sidewalk and crosswalk paving patterns, materials, and colors; decorative street lighting; tree location, species selection, and grate design; benches; trash containers; and unique street, directional, and pedestrian signage.
Our integration of roadway engineering, stormwater management, and landscape architecture results in the most effective design. We incorporate curb extensions and planter boxes along the roadway, and we educate our clients about how to use tree wells as water quality improvements, water features as stormwater BMPs, and architectural treatments to reference historical and natural resources. In this way, landscaping has the potential to be more than an aesthetic choice, and every material and finish presents a chance to incorporate local flavor, preferences, and history.
