Mary Baldwin Master Plan

Mary Baldwin University

Staunton, Virginia


In support of their strategic plan, GBR Architects developed a master plan for the Mary Baldwin campus. The plan begins by optimizing the use of existing campus buildings through a reorganization of functions into campus use precincts. These precincts include new and expanded facilities that address critical programmatic needs. Key to the plan is the transformation of the pedestrian environment. Years ago, the college had acquired an adjacent military academy but had never effectively linked the two campuses. The master plan converts an existing series of roads and parking into new central Campus Green and a linear pedestrian street.
