The program addresses the challenge of a divided-use building, with an educational and counceling center for challenged youth opposite a large multi-use space, which the city can rent out. A tall mixing chamber separates the programs, it's clear face inviting the public to explore their new community center. The lobby aligns with a path which bisects the adjacent gardens: a re-purposed sports field.
A completely flexible space for a small tech company in the silicon valley. The existing concrete tilt-up was gutted, and a unistrut grid suspended with retractable electrical drops and track lighting over a polished concrete floor. All workstations are rolling allowing the teams to reconfigure as necessary. The space is a reflection of the needs of the modern workspace. As a cost saving measure, off-the-shelf anodized aluminum 3" deep floor grating was used as privacy partitions.
