This project is a fully interactive virtual environment that can be explored at: www.noble-associates.com


COMICERAL A fully interactive “Virtual Portfolio” where visitors can view past project experience in a 3D environment. Demonstrates the ability to present architectural design concepts to clients and stake holders in a 3D walk thru space from a web connection. This technique can be applied to all projects of Noble and Associates. Explore “Sustainable Design” concepts Conceived as a LEED Platinum project. The structural system is 100% recycled, this is repurposing of transportation industries signage recovered from demolition of roadways across the western United States. Billboard signage is also incorporated for the façade at the entry. Passive temperature control is incorporate using the reflective pool for evaporative cooling; this pool can also be used for gray water retention.


Food Service This remodel of an existing barber shop in San Leandro California extended the neighboring restaurant and created a flexible space for events, wine tasting, or overflow dining for the restaurant. Extremely limited space made

North wall is treated as a “Virtual Partition” thru the use of mirror to “Expand the perceived” space doubling the area of the tasting room. The high celling is accentuated with beams that are continued from the existing restaurant to move the focus up to the larger high space.


RESIDENTIAL Demonstrates the ability to present architectural design concepts to clients and stake holders in a 3D walk thru space, from a web connection.

Explore “Sustainable Design” concepts; Roof captures rain water and is stored in tureen, solar panels allow disconnection from grid and returns energy to utility company. Foot print is 50% of floor area thus limiting disturbances to natural grade and preserving water retention and reducing the “Heat Island Effect”.


CURTURAL This submission to the International Design Competition for the Tomihiro Museum of SHI-GA (poems and watercolor paintings) is for a structure that will be located in Azuma Village, Japan. This is the hometown of the artist and poet Tomihiro Hoshino. It will be a museum, that will continually speak to us of the dignity and gentleness of life through the poems and watercolor paintings of this artist.


More than anything, the new museum is a place created for the world that Hoshino constantly seeks, a world of gentleness, courage to live and love, and a place for transmitting this message to not only Japanese but to the people of the world.

The concept of: “Technology and materialism of the modern age” versus “Tranquility and sublime form”

This is deeply related to the art of Tomihiro and is the essential theme of this new museum. This concept, which so counters the plethora of information, technology, and materialism of the modern age, is one of universal human appeal, and the essential theme of the new museum. The new Tomihiro Museum will showcase the rich nature surrounding Azuma Village. It will be a place to encounter Tomihiro Hoshino's way of life, the perfect place to appreciate that form of expression he excels at called: "SHI-GA (poems and watercolor paintings)".


There is a metaphorical intellectual progression of built forms and implicit geometries transforming in time and space from; synthetic to natural, disingenuous to sincere, order to chaos, rigger to plasticity, ying to yang, and from substantial to insubstantial. A paradoxical juxtaposition of built forms that embodies these intrinsic ideas of Tomihiro Hoshino:

Basis of concept, Form generators, Attitudes in order of importance: • • • • • • •

Reference to water edge - Lake edges. Relation to cultural origins, indigenous (Japan), Shoji – Japanese screen. Organic natural forms – as implied in in the art of Tomihiro. Accessibility – reverence to Tomihiro and his quadriplegia. Functional requirements of art exhibit. The dichotomy of the site’s natural view and the experience of the art exhibit itself. Contemplative space that requires one to turn his back to nature in order to appreciate the nature within the art as well as oneself as is the disposition of the art of Tomihiro.


Site partē Oriented to allow the existing museum to remain and to have the new building present itself to guests arriving from the major population centers of Japan to the east. Allow the parking to be distributed across the gorge and to make a substantial vertical statement directing the users to the entry courtyard. Develop viewing opportunities to the new edifice. Use of trees to reinforce the connection to the existing facilities that will remain and the new museum. Creation of vertical circulation within the site/building sympathetic to handicapped and producing exciting viewing spaces for the exhibits as well as the natural environment it’s stationed within.


RESIDENTIAL Narrow hill side site thought to be unbuildable Utilizing Ray Kappy’s tower and beam construction partie the house “steps” up the hill floating the structure above the terrain.


COMMERCIAL Low cost infill urban site build to suite for a light manufacturing company in Santa Fe, California. The City wanted the project to reflect the heritage of the Mexican community. Economical construction utilizing “Tilt-up� concrete, With forms and colors that connote a southwestern sensibility.


HOSPITALITY (executed at Hill Glazer Architects) This project borders a residential community to the east and the bluffs of the Pacific Ocean to the west. The project must fit into the community and provide the client with a robust hotel and convention center that takes advantage of the spectacular site without dominating the neighborhood. Bungalow style low height forms nested into the top of the cliff along with a single story convention center makes this project a well mannered neighbor for the near by residences.

HOSPITALITY Montage Deer Valley promises a classic on-mountain getaway for all seasons. Resort guests enjoy a coveted location atop Empire Pass, true ski-in/ski-out access to America’s No. 1 ski resort and year-round activities, including hiking, biking, golf and fly-fishing. This project consists of154 deluxe guestrooms and more than 66 suites and residences, ranging from one to four bedrooms, with breathtaking alpine views. All accommodations include a gas fireplace, scenic mountain or valley views, private balcony or patio, estate-quality furnishings, and five-fixture stone bathrooms with separate glass-wall showers, soaking tubs and heated floors. The site was part of the historic ore mining and processing site of the Daly West Mine. Through partnership with the EPA, the development of the land included cleanup of the contamination from the former mine and the establishment of a conservation easement of over 2,800 acres. The resort seeks to minimize its impact through minimizing and treating storm water runoff by removing 80 percent of the total suspended solids. Efforts to reduce the impact of motor vehicles on the site include tying into the local public transportation system through the use of a shuttle system, providing preferred parking for hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles as well as for carpools and reducing site parking by 20 percent more than is allowable by code. An energy-efficient heat enthalpy recovery system as well as a stacked boiler system contribute to the 19 percent energy reduction. Operation of the resort will continue to focus on sustainability through purchasing policies, green housekeeping and an integrated pest-management program. The resort earned LEED Silver Certification.
