Located on the historic Humboldt Boulevard and steps away from Chicago's popular 606 Trail, the project converts a century-old church to residential use, providing 15 new residential apartments to Chicago's increasingly popular Logan Square neighborhood. Among the redevelopment’s most striking design achievements is the successful incorporation of a new construction annex building that completes the street wall and blends seamlessly into the historic fabric of the neighborhood.
We are adaptable.
This enclave of forty eight new homes provided the unique opportunity to create not just a new building, but a whole new neighborhood. The homes are arranged to create a sense of community and promote pride of ownership. The design of the individual homes reinterpret the traditional image of a house, with traditional peaked roof forms and comfortably scaled windows taking cues from modern influences and detailing.
We are advocates.
The building’s “active design” and colorful articulation echo the progressive ideology on which the school’s learning approach is based. Highly efficient floor plans and the interconnection of interior and exterior space provide a flexible environment that encourages individual and social engagement at multiple levels.
We are caretakers.
Located in the heart of one of the country’s fastest-growing downtown districts at Fifth and Broadway, the $400 million redevelopment project transforms the former site of the Nashville convention center into a vibrant, mixed-use destination. The Place is a 387-unit contemporary residential tower with its base stylishly articulated to complement the historic urban context. The apartment tower’s modern, grey glass volume is overlaid by a black aluminum grid designed to accentuate the building’s form and make it both legible and distinct from the surrounding structures.
We are collaborators.
The extensive renovation and residential conversion of the seven-story, Victorian-era piano factory included the addition of a brightly colored steel superstructure, serving as a framework for exterior terraces on its north side, and a new enclosed parking garage. On the interior, several of the custom designed interiors utilize "house-like" pavilions in place of walls or partitions to shelter specific private functions and break up ballroom-sized areas. Throughout all of the spaces, air conditioning and heating ducts are exposed, which like the wooden columns of the old factory, serve to continually remind the viewer of the industrial origins of the building.
We are pioneering.
One Oak is located in the heart of booming South Austin, just minutes from downtown. Nestled alongside Bouldin Creek, the 4-story, 106-unit condominium development embraces the site's natural beauty by orienting the central courtyard east toward the lush tree-lined creek. The exterior design uses timeless natural materials that inspire a sense of warmth and comfort that brings balance to the urban setting while thoughtfully subdivided massing corresponds to the neighborhood scale.
We are placemakers.
465 North Park is a LEED Gold certified high-rise apartment building featuring the first use of a Tuned Sloshing Damper on a residential building in Chicago. The building forms were generated by overlaying and rotating ellipses that contrasts against a rectilinear neighborhood. The curved profile of the building not only creates a striking presence in the Chicago skyline but also secures view corridors in every direction making the building both functional and dynamic.
We are sustainable.
Sited on a four-acre site where the north and south branches of the Chicago River converge, Wolf Point East is part of an expansive two million square foot residential planned development. Nestled in a lushly landscaped park setting, the rectangular massing of the building is articulated by several upper-level setbacks and curtain walls that incorporate glass and vertical metal fins.
We are urban.
