Monongalia County Courthouse Plaza

Mills Group completed a conceptual master plan of the Monongalia County Courthouse building and plaza renovations through the strategic integration of spaces. The design is based regional heritage and included a variety of design elements to improve the functional needs of the space.

Careful analysis and exploration of pedestrian access and circulation to -- and within -- the plaza and building laid the groundwork for the overall concept. A more prominent and welcoming entrance invites pedestrians to the building from High Street and Walnut Street. Well-defined transitional spaces will allow for ease of access and greater community involvement.

Upgrades include an exterior ADA ramp and interior chair lift.

Design elements include:

  • An outline of the Monongahela River embedded in the plaza hardscape
  • Planned focal points utilizing low-maintenance native foliage, an historic fountain and existing memorial plaques
  • Timeline design featuring local history embedded in metal in the plaza hardscape
  • Location: Morgantown, WV
  • Client: Monongalia County Commission
  • Services: Planning
