Rizvi Architects
Smithfield Master Plan

Rizvi prepared a master plan for possible building opportunities on land bordering the existing buildings of the Smithfield corporate campus. Working with Pressley Associates, the team developed footprints and circulation plans for one 600,000-square foot and two 350,000-square foot building schemes.

The team developed over 15 different schematics and analyzed their landscape position, parking requirements, building adjacencies, and core/structural feasibility. The team paid special attention to the aesthetic experience of the site and how to integrate building and landscape. Massing models and a landscape model were prepared to study the significant building relationships and views out into the surrounding forest land.
