JW Zunino was tasked with providing a state-of-the-art, water efficient landscape and irrigation design, which symbolized the progress and vision of UNLV development. Hospitality Hall will be a trademark for the University in many ways. A leader in Hotel Administration Education as well as Professional Golf Management, the design must reflect the University’s sustainable values as well as the potential future for hotel and resort design.Undulating concrete seating blocks were implemented to provide students with individual and group seating, while preventing vandalism from skateboard activity. Planting arrangements were very formal and deliberate to guide students and visitors through the outdoor spaces while leading them to the building entries.
JW Zunino also had an integral part in providing the golf management program with an outdoor putting green demonstration area for students. This area will provide a forum for instruction and teaching methods. The multitude of uses surrounding this building and how that relates to the surrounding campus, is what makes this a unique outdoor experience.
