Fort Belvoir-Warriors in Transition Complex

Fort Belvoir, VA

Bowman provided landscape architectural design services for development of the Warriors in Transition Residential and Family Assistance Center on the grounds of the U.S. Army’s Fort Belvoir garrison. This site was designed as part of the Ft. Belvoir Hospital campus and consists of two residential barracks and family assistance-visitor center.

The landscape plan features upper and lower quad areas with traditional spaces of varying scales and activity levels that provide character and sense of place to the WIT campus. The quad areas feature logical pedestrian connections between building entry and exit points, focal points, seating areas, areas of gateway, landscaping for the human scale and the use of pedestrian scale lighting to enhance and extend the use of the spaces. Putting greens, water features, and a healing garden provide wounded warriors areas for repose, reflection and relaxation. Emphasis placed on water efficient native plantings and an underground cistern for irrigation to promote sustainable site initiatives.
