College of the Atlantic
Bar Harbor, Maine
Newlin Gardens Coplon Associates designed a series of connected courtyards and garden areas within the academic core of the College of the Atlantic campus. Named for a principal benefactor of the college, the garden serves as a central gathering and seating area, providing a focus for outdoor social activity. The design integrated the elements of a traditional Maine coastal garden-ledge, topographic relief, and native and familiar plant materials-with the requirement of a high use pedestrian activity area.
