Lititz Watch Technicum
The Lititz Watch Technicum is truly a showpiece of creativity and ingenuity. From the early design phases, the architecture and site design were strongly influenced by the historic rural character of the area, with a contemporary flavor.
The site features a stone-lined waterfall, a large pond with colorful plantings on its perimeter, and a series of fountains and pools surrounding a dining terrace. The addition of the water features also serves as a sound buffer to the traffic nearby.
Site and architecture are married by the use of the stone on the building and carried throughout the site by stone retaining walls. Design and functionality merge as storm water detention is incorporated with a system of water features.
