AN INTEGRATED DESIGN PRACTICE

B+H advance strategy

SM

B+H Advance Strategy is the consulting arm of B+H Architects, a recognized, 400 person global planning and design firm, with offices in Asia, North America and the Middle East.

Our strategy practice was founded in Seattle in 2013, providing consulting services to corporations, developers and institutions, world-wide. The diversity of our clients provides us with a breadth of perspective across multiple sectors and the ability to translate discoveries from one client in ways that are meaningful and potential game-changers to other clients. Research-based organizations are somewhat better positioned than many to creatively respond to change because the discovery process is your core function. We contribute our own discovery tools to scan for and bring critical change drivers, internal and external, into context with you. From there, we work with you to form insights, frame opportunities and define a quantitative and qualitative enterprise vision to guide development of future-proofed space strategies, enabling the outcomes you seek. Like that of many of our clients, our methodology is inquiry-driven…and participatory. We begin with research, partnering with our clients to understand their research mission at macro and micro scales. How does the mission “show up” in the day to day life of the organization? What would an optimal expression of that mission appear to an observer? We utilize a variety of workshop designs informed by what is important to you, to see opportunities with fresh eyes, connect the dots and ideate with us: how might we...? Our process is both linear and iterative. Research, external to the organization as well as internal, is accomplished through conventional research methods and discovery workshops, in which the aspirational, desired future state is considered in light of current organizational “as-is” state. Our tools are designed to initiate and sustain a critical dialogue among leadership and users that informs a scenarios-based process in which various space solutions addressing your organization’s desired future are defined, made tangible and are evaluated and refined through iterative cycles. Measurement of refined scenarios against an organization’s critical quantitative and qualitative metrics identifies the best-performing solution. With a solution selected, we then create an implementation road map. We work with you to describe and communicate this space strategy in a way that is transparent, defensible and actionable.

OUR METHODOLOGY NEEDS ANALYSIS & PROGRAMMING 4 MEETINGS + INTERVIEWS – 6 WEEKS

GETTING STARTED

1 MEETING

Successful arrival at a future destination depends on starting out with the right map. Your kick off meeting will set the stage for the course of the project, telling us more about your organization and your goals for this project in particular. We will work with you to understand who the key stakeholders are, who our day to day contact is, and their preferred method of communication. We are accustomed to providing a communication calendar, which is accessible to all team members for the duration of the work. We pride ourselves on being effective communicators and building consensus amongst multiple decision makers, across a variety of roles and titles at every level of the organization. We suggest a thorough conversation around budget and milestones. We will outline the roles and responsibilities of all parties, and kickoff meeting to fully vet the the the conditions which could impact our go-forward process.

ADVANCE STRATEGIES VISION 1

WORKSHOP

Before we do things right, we need to understand the right things to do. Understanding what you need from 360 degrees, is the most important aspect of creating a great workplace. Capturing character of integrated demand and supply and overlaying “big data” lowers risk and supports flexibility. The outcome of this process is a Vision Report and ROADMAP that is the basis for taking decisions and moving forward. Visioning also marks the front door of the creative process. We will discuss branding, first impressions, client messaging and quality of life. These discussions will inform the guiding principles for our design. Through a variety of formats designed to suit the character and culture of an organization we define, characterize and validate the opportunities within the buildings.

WORKPLACE STRATEGY

2 meetings

B+H will introduce progressive workplace overlays to meet benchmarking objectives, define new ways of interacting, and possibly optimize efficiency where it makes sense. Connecting your business objectives to alternative workplace models offers the opportunity to leverage pennies for dollars evolving, even transforming, your organizations culture.

FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING 4 meetings assumed – max., inclusive of Senior Management 1 townhall type meetings assumed B+H will conduct dedicated interviews with the key representatives and user groups to determine staff needs and explore future growth and change. We will also explore the ancillary and client facing areas that are not captured during interviews. Given the need for a multi-floor analysis, we will explore departmental adjacencies and “hot topics” or areas that need further audit in order to finalize the program such as interconnecting stairs, or furniture standards used. B+H may recommend areas for additional internal research. Our team will compile the research and translate the data into the final space requirements. We will review and propose planning scenarios for existing and potential buildings, evaluating the effectiveness of various locations as part of the decision making process.

ONE ON ONE INTERVIEWS

10 max assumed

B+H will conduct dedicated interviews with the key practice group representatives and user groups, we also recommend a workshop with the Steering Committee to explore the Ancillary and client facing areas that might not be captured during Interviews. Given the need for a multi floor analysis, we will explore departmental adjacencies and “hot topics” or areas that need further audit in order to finalize the program such as interconnecting stairs, or the filing standards used by each staff member. B+H will publish these findings to the Steering Committee.

PHARMACEUTICAL BENCHMARKING

EXISTING FACILITY REVIEWS

3 SITE REVIEWS –

OUR TEAM WILL REVIEW 2 EXISTING ASTRAZENECA SITES. Our team will review existing facilities (if any) and create a document that benchmarks real estate guideline commonalities, strengths in design, issues and lessons learned, exceptions per environment and use, along with any other items deemed as noteworthy in assessing the new property conditions possibilities & limitations. The third site will be the actual project site as due diligence on the base building condition. This information will be reviewed by the B+H team, and we will make recommendations relative to the project objectives.

COMMITTEE WORKSHOPS

2 WORKSHOPS

The intent for the workshops is to discuss all current findings with your internal team. These should be informal, candid, and interactive sessions that seek to confirm or dismiss any findings relative to the projects goals. Budget and Schedule development will also be discussed, and determined relative to the project goals. This is the time that we will seriously question, and requestion all aspects of the assignment as the outcome of these sessions form the basis of the programming report.

CONCEPTUAL PLANNING

3 OPTIONS / 1 PRESENTATION

Upon the conclusion of the workshops, the data collected, the functional program, and reviewed workplace strategies, the team will create a series of conceptual plans and stacking options for your organizations review. Upon review of the planning, your organization will approve one solution that will be included in the final programming document and this planning will be developed further in the consecutive phases.

FINAL REPORTS

2 PRESENTATIONS

We will also at this time be completing and submitting the base building report regarding all items concerning the existing conditions and recommendations. A final report will be presented to your internal team as a conclusion to the data collection and research exercises. The document will serve as a guide for the project team in consecutive phases. The document should reflect all known project realities, as well as certain conceptual notions.Your organziation will review the document for accuracy and provide formal approval.

Ltd LEED Registered and targeting Green Mark Platinum Certification Firm B+H in collaboration with RDC

The design features of the new Integrated Building and the new Medical Centre Building are the demonstration of an approach that is at once patientcentric, gefriendly, flexible and sustainable. It represents the first stage in the re-imagination of the Changi General Hospital as a community hub for wellness and healing. We approached the campus design as a whole, working towards optimizing operational efficiencies through a comprehensive functional planning approach focusing on key adjacencies, building linkages and opportunities

for future expansion. The centre portion of the Changi General Hospital site has been re-purposed as a landscaped open space framed by the existing Changi General Hospital and new MC building. Similarly, the Integrated Building site has been developed with an emphasis on ground level open space consistent with the shared public usage and social care/community services focus of these areas.

Canadian Architect Awards 2012

Given the prescriptive requirements of the lab-office program, the ultimate form had to respond to large area requirements that would be typically associated with research facilities for pharmaceutical companies located in more suburban locations where land costs were less of a premium. The result is a vertically stacked lab office building that not only doubles the size of the existing MaRS Phase 1 facility, which is spread with three individual buildings, but also contains the area into one building becoming the programmatic anchor to the overall complex.

The project site is demarcated as a hub within Toronto similar to the trifecta in a Venn diagram where the overlap of research based studies and the practical application of medicine along with entrepreneur experimentation meet. These urban fields are comprised of the extension of the University of Toronto Campus, the existing assemblage of healthcare institutions and the expanding Financial District. Situated at the south east corner of University Avenue and College Street, this contextual collision and the interrelationship of research, practice and entrepreneur is seen as the defining elements for placing making and assigning MaRS as the centre of Toronto’s Discovery District.

The MaRS Phase 2 building functions as a state-of-theart laboratory and office complex, creating interactive environments for leading minds in research and inviting the public to engage with the work developing within and thereby creating a ‘forum for the convergence of ideas’.

Project Description

Deeply rooted in the fascination of the random sequences and the perceptions of surfaces at magnified scales as seen in genetic discovery and nano technology, the inspiration of the exterior articulation sought patterns in surface textures that responded to site conditions and a material palette that was derived from existing materiality. Of particular interest, was the terracotta cornices on the existing Heritage building that provide relief from the distinctive brick face. With the mandate of maintaining the masonry base according to the established setbacks per the zoning criteria and the prerogative of providing increased natural light to the second floor lab office areas, the design team devised a tracery of terracotta baguettes fastened to screen like structure. The filigree of terracotta bauguettes with implied movement in the placement within the set screen provides animation to the street scape.

"Toronto’s innovation hub; centrally located in the Discovery District"

Building design features include the podium level ‘jewel box’ which will house exhibition space at the ground level and front a new public plaza. The ‘jewel box’ serves as integral volumetric piece to the overall massing of Phase II that acknowledges the Heritage building through a modern sensitivity and prominently recognizes its adjacency to the Provincial Parliament. Along the West elevation (University Ave.) terracotta screens and panels are employed as response to the terracotta cornices of the Heritage Building. Continuity of the terracotta extends into the public, interior atrium providing a subtle contrast to the ‘jewel box’ and a complementary materiality to the brick faced Heritage façade. The tower portion of Phase II is designed as several articulated masses in a process to break down the monolithic building surfaces resulting from such a large floor plate. Analogous to a protective skin being peeled away to reveal the inner tissue, a portion of the building is clad in bluesliver tinted glazing. This glazing includes protruding glass fins that further break down the mass by creating a finely textured surface. Recessed from the blue-silver glazing, is ultra-clear low-iron glass, which exhibits to the city the inner workings of the building.

The constraints of the site were dictated by a zoning regulations based on a mirrored replica of the existing Phase 1 complex. As a result, the design team challenged the existing as-of-right condition including height restraints, allowable density as well as a prescribed masonry base. With the placement of the existing General Hospital Heritage Building, the remaining site area provided a L-shaped outline which triggered the formal moves with regards to the building’s massing

Situated on a prominent street corner, the building sits adjacent to the seat of the provincial government, cultural and financial districts and world-class academic and medical institutions. MaRS Phase 2 is designed to enhance this campus of converging ideas and innovation between science, business and government by providing a concentrated volume of research laboratories that suits the needs of its occupants as well as inviting the public to engage within the space and with scientific innovation.

Conceptual Diagram

01. Site

The fundamental organizing parti consisted of two elements: 1) an extension of the existing atrium to provide an interior streetscape for the complex that connects and completes a public promenade with two prominent entrances off Univeristy Ave. and College St.; 2) two primary overlapping tower volumes linked with a common service and elevator core produce . The offset relationship of the tower volumes is informed by the position of the Toronto General hospital which also dictates the continuation of the existing MaRS atrium which as a spine runs east west across the site connecting Elizabeth to University . The height of the volumes step down towards the University avenue with the parapet of the western most volume establishing the east portal of the University Corridor completing the formal

02. Atrium Extension

urban gateway to downtown Toronto. The combination of the offset in plan and height for the primary volumes along with the articulation of the base mandate a cluster of buildings within a building similarly to being a complex with a complex. The surface articulation of each volume is defined by different glazing types, fusing together seemingly different parts into one captured collision of a whole. Evidently there is also a progression in complexity in the surface treatment originating from the Phase 1 leading to more articulated surfaces along University Avenue.
