A new music building for Muskingum University. This 20,000 sqft. building is now home to a choral rehearsal hall, instrumental rehearsal hall, electric, percussion and piano studios, music classrooms, practice rooms, a music library and all additional support spaces. Tucked into the gently rolling hills of New Concord, Ohio, this new music building asserts itself as a modern dressing of the traditional building materials of Ohio, brick and terra cotta.

Grosse Pointe Public Library

Grosse Pointe Public Library, 2008, Grosse Pointe, MI, USA

Mid-Century modern at its best. This existing circa 1953 Marcel Breuer library was bursting at the seams from the continued use and growth of the Grosse Pointe community. Our winning proposal restores this gem back to its rightful glory while adding an equal size addition. Only touching the existing library lightly allows us to create a signature Breuer design element between the new and old…a courtyard for reading or having a coffee in the sun. This Marcel Breuer icon will glow in the presence of Twenty-First Century modernism.

Riverside Public Library

Riverside Public Library, 2007, Riverside, CA, USA
.
This proposed addition and renovation to the Riverside Public Library will serve to strengthen and reinvigorate the urban conditions at the city center through the use of four proposed climate specific elements; the Courtyard, Pergolas, Groves and Water. Incorporating these design elements will bring light, air and green space deep into the building’s core, create shaded transitions from the street, soften the edges and pay homage to the city’s citrus legacy and cool the air and provide soothing sounds. Beyond the virtues of each of these architectural elements they together create a cohesive sustainable whole.
