We enjoy the Feasibility Study and Schematic Design phases. It allows us to get to know you and the community, and allows you to visualize and think through different issues and scenarios in a defined process.
Laurel Mountain State Park

Laughlintown, PA

Laurel Mountain State Park is a downhill skiing area, with seven ski slopes that were cut into a 493-acre tract of hardwood forest. With a vertical drop of 900 feet and approximately 2,800 feet of ski trails, Laurel Mountain has one of the steepest and most challenging slopes found in PA. Due to a lack of adequate water supply for snow making the park was closed in 2003. Moshier Studio lead a team to regrade the park for water retention ponds, extend the snowmaking system, and replace the ski lift. Completed for 2016 ski season.

Elk Center Classroom Outdoors (ECCO)

Benenzette, PA

One of the primary features of the building is a high efficiency bio-mass boiler which heats the building with cord wood harvested on site from deadfall collection and trail maintenance operations.

University of Pittsburgh

William Pitt Union

Pittsburgh, PA


The University of Pittsburgh’s William Pitt Union is located in the historic Schenley Hotel. In addition to several small projects for Career Services and the Office of International Students, Moshier Studio has recently designed several floors to support new Student Life goals.

A complete renovation of the basement level meets the need for large gathering and performing space, and provides an alternative to the ‘bar scene’ for students. It contains lounges, a smoothie bar, multi-player gaming simulators, pool tables, stage and dance floor. New HVAC and lighting systems meet energy requirements while updating the look and performance of the area.


Sisters of St. Francis of the
Neumann Communities

Millvale, PA

This project’s goals were to replace the discolored ceiling material to improve the appearance of the room, design a more flexible lighting system, improve the sound characteristics of the room, and make the room feel more intimate for daily use.

Around the perimeter of the room, a new cornice was constructed for indirect cold cathode lighting.

By directing more light upward to the new ceiling, the room appears much brighter. The cloistered effect has been replaced by views to the outdoors, and the acoustics now support the lively conversations of the community.
