intrada apartments Vecino Group _ 2016 - 2018 Saint Louis, Missouri
This project was multi-facted with upgrades to an 100-year-old building in the heart of St Louis, a four-story addition and residents/services for yourth phasing out of foster care combined with affordable housing for seniors. The name, â€œIntradaâ€? comes from the definition: a musical prelude or musical introduction. That being said, this project will serve as a new beginning for the previously underserved residents moving into their new home. The viision for these combined demographics is that the fostered youth typically are looking for some sort of mentor, while the seniors are looking for general companionship. A truly visionary idea with only a handful of prototypical examples across the country. Challenges included programming elements for these varying demographics, restoring a deteriorated structure on a limited budget and appeasing the neighborhood. With the help of an outstanding construction and interiors team, the project is due to open in fall of 2018.
Amenities in this facility include a historic community room with community kitchen. The idea was that seniors could teach the youth helpful cooking skills. Also included is a library/tech room where the tables might be turned as the youth teaches seniors about computers and technology. There is also an outdoor area with patio, shaded area and bbq grills. Carondelet Park is across the street from Intrada Apartments providing miles of shaded walking trails. Indoors youâ€™ll find support services for both the seniors and the youth, a fitness area, conference room and seveal casual sitting areas. Many historic features and accessories in this building were purposely salvaged from the existing and neighborhing structure.
cresco apartments Vecino Group _ 2016 - 2017 Springfield, Missouri
In an effort to expand the adjacent “Park East Community” in downtown Springfield, Missouri where three ofther student housing projects reside, Cresco (meaning “growth” in Latin) was created. While a bit separate and a new-build, unlike its historic counterparts, Cresco aimed to focus the design on green space and the nurture the “live-learn” philosophy of student housing. While you’ll see students in the enclosed sunken green space or laying in a hammock, inside this building is full of technology helping students to keep up with school demands and have the flexibility to study virtually anywhere. This site was previously a parking garage, partially under grade provided a challenge for the design team. An effort was made to either butt the structure up against retaining walls where service/non-glazed rooms existed or offset the exterior wall with vegitation-filled trellis’ clearing the gap. The “U-shape” of the building provided a natural cascade for the “sunken green space” with large grassy platforms working their way down the grade. Amenties include bike racks, a parking garage next door, community room, study room/study pods, bbq grills, trash valet and high-quality finishes on the interior. Exterior finishes vary from corten steel, polycarbonate glazing and natural cedar. 8
freedom springs Vecino Group _ 2017 - 2018 Colorado Springs, Colorado
This project focuses on affordable housing for veterans in the Colorado Springs community. Much thought was given into accessibilily, logical amenities including fitness, rooftop patios, community spaces, and health & dental services on site. Offices for supportive services will be housed on site as well. As with any affordable housing project, security and the flow of traffic in and out of the building was calculated meticulously as well. Outdoors this complex will include a community garden and basketball court. Efforts to maximize the amount of green space and minimize parking surface area also received attention. This project is currently under construction.
tapestry & hearthside apartments Vecino Group _ 2018 Springdale, Arkansas
This project is actually two-in-one, and will likely be duplicated as a prototype in cities such as Marion, Arkansas (a suburb of Memphis); Kansas City, KS; Joplin, MO and Omaha, Nebraska. The “Tapestry” apartments will serve as affordable housing for families and the “Hearthside” apartments will serve as affordable housing for seniors. They are on the same site, but two different lots. Shared amenties will include a clubhouse furnished with a community kitchen, storm shelter, computer lab and fitness area. Outdoor amenties will include a basketball court, picnic area, playground and potentially walking trails. This project is currently funded and in the permitting process for construction.
capital city lofts Vecino Group _ 2017 Jefferson City, Missouri
This is the preliminary design for the restoration of a historic building located just east of Missouri’s State Capitol. Once a prominent shoe factory it is now used as storage for a local steel manufacturer. The founder of the steel factory stated before passing away that his wish was to turn this building into housing for the area. The neighborhood is full of history. Right next door was the state’s maximum security prision from 1836 to 2004 housing famous criminals such as “Pretty Boy” Floyd and James Earl Ray. Due to the stigma of danger in the neighborhood the area experienced massive blight, primarily housing relatives of those imprisoned and those who could not afford to move elsewhere. Currently the area is under a period of revitiliztion and this project would provide immense positive influence on the area. Currently it is waiting on LIHTC funding through the federal government while the State of Missouri’s Housing Development Commission is on hiatus amid the resignation of their most recent governor.
city utilities bus transfer station Butler Rosenbury & Partners _ 2014 - 2016 Springfield, Missouri
A long overdue upgrade for the communityâ€™s bus transfer station prompted this design project. Not only will this facility house more bus berths, but it will include a larger interior space for passengers complete with public restrooms, expansive seating, digital ticketing kiosks, radi-
ant floor heating and custom solar shading panels. The exterior spaces will have bike storage facilities, bike pump stations, outdoor seating, public art and rain gardens
fed by a series of strategically placed shed-roof canopies. Technological upgrades were also integrated into the facility with an advanced
bus tracking system tied to the building signage and queuing system. Inside a series of historical panels and screens will inform as well as entertain the passengers while they are waiting for their transportation.
In a town that celebrates its Route 66 roots, mass transportation is playing increasing role as people look toward the future. This facility will certainly help the community fulfill this effort.
home2 Butler Rosenbury & Partners _ 2015 Evansville, Indiana
Modeled after a new hotel design, the Home2 is a modern take on the traditional suite hotel. The enlongated guestroom allows room for a kitchentte, living room area and sleeping quarters. Other amenities include a privacy
curtain, expansive desk space, lots of storage and modern finishes throughout. This hotel comes with a pool, outdoor seating space with grills and a large indoor lounge area with a variety of seating. This particular
model was the jumpstart project for an additional three other locations around the country.
zenith climbing center Butler Rosenbury & Partners _ 2015 - 2016 Springfield, Missouri
The Ozark community is serious about climbing and was in desparate need of a new climbing center. When a young couple came with aspirations to convert an old tennis club
turned telemarketing center back into a recreational space, we got to work. The shell was hollowed out, floors, refinished, HVAC updated and amenities like showers and a yoga studio were added. The walls themselves were built in co-op with Walltopia -a company out of Bulgaria -- and BIM models
were passed back & forth over the Atlantic throughout the design phases to coordinate
heights, structural supports and overall layout. The end result is hugely popular -- used for not only climbing and yoga, but also community events such as outdoor-themed film festivals and other gatherings.
missouri theatre center for the arts The Architects Alliance _ 2005 - 2008 Columbia, Missouri
complete restoration of this downtown Columbia, Missouri theatre transformed a jewel A
from deterioration into a majestic venue. Its resurgence can be attributed to meticulous finish work, structural upgrades, and technological enhancement. Not only does the auditorium now hold more occupants, but its visitors can enjoy the new mezzanine / lounge area and adjacent Columbia Art League Gallery. Special attention was paid to matching original elements while incorporating modern upgrades. Improvements included an enlarged lobby space, addition of administrative spaces on the upper levels, upgraded equipment, additional green rooms, and archival / museum space.
central technology services The Architects Alliance _ 2007 - 2008 Jefferson City, Missouri
This building houses the technological core of a bank with thirteen branches across the Midwest. Security, style, and function all played primary roles in the design of this facility. Special attention was also paid to customize
energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems since the building is inhabited
around the clock. Features include raised access flooring; book matched wood paneling, custom furnishings, and motion sensor lighting. Extra attention was paid to the layout of the bathroom, kitchenette, and copy room details given the occupants personal preferences. Also, the grid layout of the ceiling system corresponded directly with the flooring system, adjacent office spaces, and other architectural features (such as wood panels).
boone county national bank prototype facility The Architects Alliance _ 2006 - 2008 Columbia, Missouri _ Republic, Missouri This prototype was designed to inhabit the basic functions of a stand alone banking facility that could be customized to accommodate any site. Derived from the international style of design, this facilityâ€™s clean lines reflect the clientâ€™s theme among most all of their facilities. Concise, yet bold, this design serves as an architectural beacon among the frenzy of suburbia. This entire facility was designed on a five foot grid - interior and exterior carrying through the modular beauty of its simplicity.

the cottages at hickory crossing bcWORKSHOP _ 2013 - 2014 Dallas, Texas
Located on a three-acre site less than a half-mile from downtown Dallas, the Cottages at Hickory Crossing will provide permanent supportive hous-
ing and support services for the fifty most chronically homeless persons in Dallas. To
best understand the needs of future residents and service providers, the pre-design process included a combination of research, focus group charettes and a comprehensive engagement of stakeholders in the decision-making process. The design is composed of fifty, 430-square-foot cottage residences. Individual homes encourage stronger personal identity while promoting a sense of community for residents. The 4,000-square-footsupport-services building will include counsel-
ing services, drug rehabilitation and will be linked with job training across the street.
While this building forms an urban edge at the street, it maintains a level of porosity for ease of access by residents. A series of courtyards and common
green provide flexible space for activities, from urban farming to outdoor recreation, encouraging interaction between neighbors. The project will serve as a model for sustainable urban living by maximizing open space, incorporation on-site solar energy technologies and integrating rainwater collection.
macon-starks affordable senior living community bcWORKSHOP _ 2014 Dallas, Texas
Design meetings spanned the spring and summer of 2014 for seven new rental homes
for seniors in the Ideal neighborhood of South Dallas. Residents graciously convened over five warm (sweltering may be a more appropriate description for some) Saturdays in the vacant home on site to discuss and develop the design of the series of homes. Conver-
sation was framed around the current assets, challenges and opportunities of the neighborhood. From there, discussion focused in on how the proposed homes could become an amenity to the senior residents and community by harnessing select opportunities and facing select challenges. Currently, the site strategy promotes social interaction among residents as well as physical health and safety by means of
internal walking paths, active and passive gardens, and visual connections via specifically oriented porches, windows and doors.
engineering resesarch facility University of Kansas _ Professional Option Studio 804 Professor Dan Rockhill
EcoHawks is a student research program run by the University of Kansas School of Engineering. It focuses on alternative energy for transportation. It has outgrown its second location and is in need of new space. The similar ideologies and goals of both the EcoHawks prog ram and Studio 804 makes the collaboration of the two groups a natural partnership. The iconic 3,500-square-foot building will help promote the EcoHawks program and showcase its achievements; it will aid in the re-
search, fabrication, and refurbishment of electric vehicles. The new facility will include three pods divided into both indoor and outdoor work areas. The eastern most two pods are high-bay spaces designed to show-
case the studentsâ€™ innovative work and provide fabrication/work areas The third + western-most pod is a detached, open-air mechanical research yard and will serve as a space for outdoor research projects.
This facility will be an example of a new model of construction referred to as the â€œvehicleto-gridâ€? concept. Current energy models show this building will be twelve-percent over net zero, thus the excess energy will be used to power the cars or put back on the grid. Following the tradition of previous Studio 804 projects, the facility will incorporate both passive and active sustainable systems and technologies. The building is intended to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
Studio 804 is a yearlong, comprehensive educational opportunity for graduate students who are entering the final year of the Master ofArchitecture program at the KU School of Architecture, Design and Planning.
During each academic year, students enrolled in the full-time class
design and construct a building of great technical sophistication.
Over the last five years the Studio has completed five registered LEED Platinum buildings in Kansas. Studio 804â€™s work and its students have received recognition in countless national and international journals, and won numerous design awards.
groundwork dallas bcWORKSHOP _ 2013 - 2014 Dallas, Texas This project features an Eco-Classroom that was created in the Elm Fork Green Belt by Groundwork Dallas, BC Workshop, and the City of Dallas. The classroom is happening in two phases. The first phase is a temporary trailhead field base. The location of the field base and a mock-up can be seen in the photos. This field base will serve as a trail-
head, first-aid station, and equipment storage to support the work being done in the Elm Fork. This field base is being constructed using 20’ shipping containers, repurposed pallet slats, and recycled vinyl from an old billboard. In addition, there will be a system of shade canopies placed near the apex of the ‘light orange’ loop seen in the photo. This will provide
shelter for the Green Team and other educational partners who are working in the Elm Fork. This phase is intentionally temporary and moveable.
Phase 2 will be a permanent structure that has been designed by bcWORKSHOP and will serve as an outdoor classroom for ongoing study, lectures, and events in the Elm Fork. This phase is being planned in conjunction with the Elm Fork. 38
west bottoms homeless assistance center University of Kansas _ spring 2011 Professor Paola Sanguinetti
Research gathered by the Homeless Service Coalition of Greater Kansas City and the Kansas City Rescue Mission reveal the need in the greater Kansas City area for transitional housing for families and women (approximately 300 women are without shelter at any given time). The selected block is comprised mostly of historic and vacant buildings. The red brick building envelopes are preserved, showcasing the history of the West Bottoms. The complex is
linked using a lightweight steel canopy, which meanders throughout the site. The interior of the residential building is naturally lit with sunlight that comes in through the steel and polycarbonate canopy covering the
atrium. This theme is continued in the administrative building, where the canopy carves out the interior allowing more natural light in. The panels in the canopy guide the rainwater to a subterranean cistern where it is distributed to the roof gardens by a network of pipes which run inside the steel tree structures. This steel canopy behaves as an amoeba, transforming itself according to the area it serves. It is sculptural in the courtyard area where it acts as a canopy, while it is structural over the tree-like columns which support it in the atrium spaces. The project responds not only to the needs of the people who will be using it, but also to the site that was chosen. In this way, the center provides a starting point
for the revitalization of the entire West Bottoms area, helping not only the homeless but the community itself.

crescent city community center University of Kansas _ Spring 2012 Professors Robert Riccardi + Dominique Davison
A building designed in the heart of the ByWater district adjacent to the new riverfront development, this community center is primarily for the neighborhood residents. Versatile spaces that are sensitive to local hurricane risks + other climatic concerns are incorporated into structure. Limited natural daylight is strategically designed to permeate occupied spaces. Though post-storm conditions in New Orleans, Louisiana have done much to constrain the progress of the city, ultimately these challenges have acted as a calayst towards the rebirth of this region. Film, tourism, cuisine, and marine life have proven to be strong sources of stability for the city. This neighborhood specifically has a growing numbers of cafes + shops right next to the collection of shotgun homes. This center was designed to be a central meeting point adjacent to other developments -- a building to facilitate con-
gregation and community connectivity.

habitat for humanity Raised in what I refer to as a â€œHabitat Familyâ€? I remember very few weekends and vacations void of a volunteer project. Starting at the age of fourteen locations ranged from Colorado to Virginia to Missouri and now Ka nsas. My roles typically involved assisting with on-site work but also involved fundraising and event support. The most recent project featured on the right I was involved with distantly (due to the beginning of graduate school) but was especially exciting because it was one of the first
sustainable Habitat projects to modify an older residence. This was relevant to
this communitiy and many other communities across the world because of the embodied energy and potential in these older structures. By renovating this project green in a cost effective manner we were able to show the community that they too can remodel their homes to be more energy efficient and environmentally conscious. The excitement from the community around this project was incredibly uplifting and hopefully weâ€™ll be able to do more projects of this nature in the future.
volunteers in mission This project involved traveling to Falmouth, Jamaica -- which, no, is not the resort community that you see in the travel brochures. It is comparable to a developing country with no sewer system, sporadic electricity / plumbing, and people grow food in their backyards. Unemployment was approximately 50% when we were there. The mission was to build an infirmary for the elderly / sick population of the town and to simultaneously work in the clinic (which is only open for one week - four times per year). Construction there was an incredible experience. Interacting with the locals on a daily basis - and sometimes working beside them - and visiting those who needed the facility forced an unconscious motivation in all of us.
Challenges included the lack of materials, the lack of electricity, and the constant requests for work / payment. A
beautiful place, but so many infrastructural setbacks prevent this island from advancements a long history dating back to enslavement and revolution shape this economic condition. They are surviving, but the lifestyle is one innovation and acceptance. Working side by side with local craftsman after working with American construction workers taught me about an
even higher level of drive and motivation. It is truly about survival down there.
