Discovery Green Houston, Texas Discovery Green returns 12 acres of land that were mostly open parking lots to a natural green space in the heart of downtown Houston. The Gold LEED certified park houses a range of architectural elements which includes two restaurants, a park administration building, underground parking for 600 vehicles and numerous site features such as a bandstand and shade structures of various sizes and configurations. It provides a central focus for new development and a core of outdoor activity nearby the cityâ€™s convention center, ballpark and arena. Carefully designed to create a shield from hot south and west sun, porch roofs pitch up to the north to achieve balanced daylight for the outdoor spaces below as well as to induce air movement, drawing warm air up and out. The south-facing roofs of the cafĂŠ and park building porches house photovoltaic collectors that provide a portion of the power needed for the park. Other green initiatives include daylighting for 75% of occupied spaces, low volatile organic compounds (VOC) materials used throughout and a landscape irrigation system that reduces the volume of required potable water by 50%. Page was a partner on the project team which included Hargreaves Associates, Lauren Griffith Associates and a large team of local engineers and specialists.

Austin Convention Center and Expansion Austin, Texas Page served as Prime Architect / Engineer and managing entity for the Austin Collaborative Venture design team on the first phase and subsequent expansion of the Austin Convention Center. The initial project scope also included site selection, programming and interior design, as well as the development of a District Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines for the surrounding 40-block Central Business District area. Covering four city blocks in Austin’s CBD, the 410,000-squarefoot first phase integrated what is often an intrusive building type harmoniously into the fabric of the city. The arrangement of the building circulation and smaller-scaled programmatic elements serve as a peripheral “ring” surrounding the large exhibition spaces, enlivening the city’s streetscape with a “village” of building elements that could be designed in scale, proportion, color, material and character representative of the city, region and neighboring district. Ten years after the completion of first phase, an expansion doubled the size of the convention center. Reception halls, meeting rooms, pre-function spaces and circulation towers are expressed as individual elements linked together by entries, porches and terraces in order to create an appropriate scale along pedestrian-oriented streets. Larger volumes of the exhibition halls and ballrooms are tucked behind. The concourses that tie all of the functions together culminate in an elegant corner pavilion which is the new “front door” for the whole facility. Its impeccably detailed curtain wall integrates an innovative approach to structure with careful attention to sun control and natural ventilation. The “tour-de-force” of the building is a large glass screen wall on the west face of the pavilion designed in collaboration with sculptor Jamie Carpenter. The glass screen becomes a piece of glass sculpture and provides sun shading and a solar energy farm.

2nd Street District Austin, Texas The 2nd Street District is centered on Austin City Hall and on a quarter-mile-long portion of 2nd Street that has become a lively pedestrian-oriented retail street. The project revels in relationships between places for work, living and relaxation and in a synergy between public and private realms. The goal was to integrate office, residential, commercial and public spaces into a coherent ensemble where each element reinforced the others. The interests of a diverse constituency including the City of Austin, multiple real estate developers, corporate occupants and a wide range of retailers had to be synthesized into a coherent, productive solution. The master plan placed City Hall in a prominent spot on the axis of Drake Bridge and created a half-block plaza on its south side oriented to Lady Bird Lake. The two office blocks flanking City Hall were kept to a six-story height to provide a compatible frame for the more central, but smaller scaled public functions. The three blocks away from the lake accommodate taller buildings and residential functions above ground floor retail. The lively collections of shops, combined with appropriate scale and rich tactile materials, gives Second Street a strong, urban character. The 18-story building on the west end includes an art cinema and recreation deck in addition to residential uses. The residential/hotel building across 2nd Street from City Hall incorporates a large performance venue. With the notable and appropriate exception of City Hall, most of the buildings emphasize the longstanding role of urban structures as â€˜fabricâ€™ and draw architectural character prominently from urban design goals. The robust masonry character of the office buildings and City Hall, though completely contemporary, was inspired, in part, by local historic structures.

AUS Barbara Jordan Terminal
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport - Multiple Projects Austin, Texas Page’s experience at AUS goes back 26 years, when we began the design for the Barbara Jordan Terminal in transforming the former Bergstrom Air Force Base into the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Since that time, Page has led the design on numerous projects for AUS, including the 2006 Baggage Screening Improvements, the “East Infill” terminal addition for Checkpoint 1 and the FIS Expansion, multiple A/E Rotation List projects, the new AUS IT Building, and the architecture of the AUS 2040 Master Plan. We take pride in the fact that the facilities we have designed have helped AUS to be consistently ranked as one of the best airports in the nation in passenger experience. Our experience on the 2016 “East Infill” terminal addition for Checkpoint 1 and the FIS Expansion, demonstrates our expertise in successfully navigating the challenging technical complexities of an operating airport while maintaining continuous operations. This project provided much needed TSA and Customs passenger processing improvements at an airport experiencing some of the fastest growth in the nation. The Concourse level expansion includes an 8-lane TSA Security Screening Checkpoint, expandable to up to 10-lanes in the future, within a high-volume, open, day-lit space, as well as new concessions amenity space.

level, the project creates a new Customs screening facility, increasing international arrivals processing from 100 passengers/hour to 600 passengers/hour, utilizing CBP’s “one-stop” process and leveraging new technologies to facilitate trusted-traveler programs to streamline processing. The project also provided much needed expansion of the domestic baggage claim area. To execute this project, the Page design team worked collaboratively with the airport, the contractor and stakeholders to develop phasing plans for re-routing the incoming chilled water service to the terminal which conflicted with the desired location for the proposed expansion. Page developed a phasing strategy that created a new parallel pipe system to be installed while the existing utilities remained in place, which then allowed for a quick transition from old to new systems through short overnight cut-overs, which were coordinated with airport operations and flight schedules. This project required diverse stakeholder involvement, including Airport Operations, TSA, CBP, airlines, concessionaires, and even rental car companies. The entire project was completed without disruption to passengers. This award-winning LEED Silver project successfully achieved its goals for AUS, reducing wait times through functional design, and enhancing passenger satisfaction with beautiful welcoming spaces. Page also led the terminal design effort for the AUS 2040 Master Plan. AUS expects to exceed 31 million annual passengers by the year 2037, and the master plan provides a guide for how Austin will accommodate this unprecedented growth. Page’s services included development of design alternatives, metrics-based analysis and scoring of alternatives, block and stacking diagrams of programmed space needs, and rendered imagery of the recommended terminal expansion. Page leveraged our technical expertise in mission critical design, paired with our nationally recognized design acumen, to develop both a pragmatic and inspirational vision for the future of AUS. As a multidisciplinary firm, we have formed our practice on the inherent advantages of assembling the major design disciplines in a single collaborative environment. Our integrated approach employs holistic project management tools and systems to support close collaboration throughout the design and construction phases, creating an environment that fosters positive attitudes, professional relationships and trust. The team of professionals we have assembled for your project understands the importance of this type of communication, are experienced in facilitating interaction on complex projects, are familiar with the management tools we employ, and have a proven record of success that is evidenced in our work at AUS.

Martin Rutchik Concert Lawn Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden Dallas, Texas The Martin Rutchik Concert Stage provides an outdoor performance venue or up to 65 musicians in groups such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Richardson Symphony Orchestra, and the Dallas Wind Symphony. Choral groups such as area church choirs perform as do small ensembles and individuals offering a variety of musical presentations. A primary goal of the project was to locate the stage and shape the existing topography to create a natural amphitheater without disrupting the present vista from the Camp House to White Rock Lake. Moreover, the stage was crafted using a field of Pennsylvania blue greenstone trimmed with Tennessee Crab Orchard buff flagstone, which extends in bands through the three-tiered retaining wall seating for 265 patrons. Viewed from above, the stage and seating with flagstone banding resemble a stringed musical instrument meticulously sited into the landscape. The backdrop for the stage is a three-layer planting scheme of low Chinese Fringeflower backed by medium Needlepoint Holly which, in turn, is backed with tall Greenback Magnolias. The stage is sized to accommodate a temporary 40â€™ x 40â€™ shade canopy with overhead lighting and provides for a temporary guying system for wind loads.

Buffalo Bayou Park Houston, Texas Buffalo Bayou Park includes the part of the bayou which meanders east along Memorial Drive between Shepherd and Sabine Street in downtown Houston. Page designed two buildings and two large pavilions in the 2.3-mile, 160-acre park, which was planned and designed by landscape architecture firm, SWA. The design of the park restores the natural landscape which was adversely affected by the channelization of the bayou six decades ago and focuses on â€œpassiveâ€? recreation and destination points, such as hike and bike trails, a dog park, event venues and food service. The structures, from simple shade pavilions to larger amenity buildings, create landmarks and places of focus, while employing consistent architectural elements that visually connect the park from end to end between Lost Lake and Water Works. The design begins with simple concrete piers that create rhythmic, well-proportioned bays and a practical, durable structural and functional framework. Galvanized steel spanning members, cantilevered generously on all sides, form a gracious and shady canopy over the piers. Natural wood soffits and delicate louvered grills add warm color and soft light to contribute comfort and intimacy. Glass and wood infill panels contain conditioned space flexibly as required. The largest structure, the Lost Lake Building, occupies a high ridge above a re-established lake. It creates a long thin volume parallel to the lake in order to capture great vistas, nestle into mature trees, and lay amiably and naturally in its topography. At the Water Works Building the same architectural vocabulary is employed to frame an important plaza that acts as a gateway to the park.

Long Bridge Aquatics Center Washington, DC Page, as part of a larger design-build team with Coakley & Williams Construction, was selected as the design winner for the Long Bridge Aquatics and Fitness Center design competition. In association with MJMA, Page provided architecture and sustainability services for the design of Arlington’s first free-standing aquatics center. The center will be a showplace for environmentally sound redevelopment of what was formerly a brownfield site near the Potomac. The 10.5 acres that the center will contain the center will also feature public gathering areas, casual use space, rain gardens, parking and associated infrastructure. Arlington County provided the design-build team with very specific program requirements for the facility, including a 50M competition pool with spectator seating, Leisure Pool, Fitness, Locker Rooms, and Community Rooms. From this program, the team went through the process of coordinating closely with the Owners to arrive at a final design solution. Being a design-build project, the design team had the benefit of going through multiple design phases while the Contractor monitored costs, resulting in a project that was designed to fit within Arlington’s specified budget.

City of Buda Municipal Complex Buda, Texas The new City of Buda Municipal Complex is located on Main Street east of downtown. There are two new buildings on the site, a City Hall and Library Building as well as a Public Safety Building. Situated adjacent to Stagecoach Park, the nine-acre site has a heritage of longhorn ranching, giant oak trees and wildflowers. The buildings are sited to preserve several heritage oak trees and provide a natural landscape responsive to the occasional movement of stormwater through the site. The designs convey a sense of transparency, encouraging residents to observe, participate and engage in the processes that shape their evolving city. The main building is the new home of the Library and City administrative offices, City Council Chambers and the Economic Development Corporation. The citizenfocused City Hall and Library Building create a central hub for Buda civic life and lay the foundation for continued community growth. Within the building, a consolidated customer service area reduces redundancy and confusion, streamlines civic processes, and provides flexibility for future growth. Page is working in collaboration with Dewberry on this project. The Public Safety Building provides a new home for the Buda Police Department and provides easy access at a prominent main entry and a gated enclosure for secure officer parking. The secure yet welcoming reception area provides for public interactions with the Department and a community meeting room public meetings and interdepartmental training. For quick responses to community needs, the Public Safety Building parking has two egress routes leading to Main Street. Additionally, a Parks Maintenance Building serves city staff with Parks office space, storage and a shared break room for Public Works and the Parks Maintenance crew. It is equipped for rooftop solar photovoltaics. Page is working in collaboration with Lopez Salas Architects on these two projects.

Umlauf Sculpture Garden Austin, Texas Located at the edge of Zilker Park, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden is a large naturally landscaped garden housing the sculpture of local artist, Charles Umlauf. The Visitorsâ€™ Center acts as a buffer separating the street and parking area to its south side from the protected gardens to the north. The Visitorsâ€™ Center also houses art works which require weather protection as well as support facilities for the gardens. The building is composed of two distinct volumes. On the south side, a long thin stone volume with a wide sallyport puncturing its center creates a dramatic gateway to the gardens. This volume contains a media room, library, rest rooms, kitchen and other support functions which needed little exposure. On the north side, an even larger open frame volume houses both indoor and outdoor gallery spaces. A grand, generous porch comprises half of this volume, opening to a terrace on the east and to the broad expanse of the gardens to the north. The expression of the building is very quiet and understated so as to focus attention on the gardens and the works of art. Materials in the building are predominately native limestone for the walls, naturalfinished wood for the frame, and brick pavers for the floor. The gabled roof of the frame volume is galvanized metal. More recently, Page has worked with the Umlauf staff to develop a conceptual master plan for the expansion of the museumâ€™s facilities. The proposed facilities include expanded gallery space, educational classrooms, dedicated indoor and outdoor event space, additional administrative area, and associated structured parking. New buildings were laid out in order create an intimate entry court and to respect the rich topography and vegetation of the existing site.

Texas Facilities Commission 2016 Texas Capitol Complex Master A/E Phase I Buildings Austin, Texas Page was engaged to develop the 2016 Master Plan for the Texas Capitol Complex, perform the 2018 Upgrade to the Master Plan, and serve as Master Architect/Engineer for Phase I projects. The project is a comprehensive master plan for the 40-block area around the downtown Texas Capitol Complex, outlining a strategic vision as well as long-term goals for the most prominent site in the stateâ€™s real estate portfolio. Three guiding design concepts emerged from this analysis: (1) a vision for a new Cultural Gateway and Texas Mall approaching the Capitol grounds from the north; (2) an attitude toward east/west streets that proposes well defined urban connectors with both strong pedestrian and vehicular roles for 11th Street, 15th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard; and (3) the establishment of a Historic Precinct around a cluster of notable structures and significant landscape features that would serve as a garden district within an otherwise compact urban environment. Each state-owned site in the district was assessed in terms of its development potential, and a strategy was outlined to relocate 1,200,000 square feet of state offices from lease spaces around Austin to the Capitol Complex. Six new office structures are proposed in three near-term phases. As part of design services, Page developed a comprehensive Ownerâ€™s Project Requirements document (OPR), that establishes the quality expectations and technical standards for the development of the buildings proposed. The OPR also sets goals for energy efficiency and life-cycle cost analysis, serving our state for many years to come.

University of California, San Francisco Mission Bay Campus Master Plan Update San Francisco, California UCSF Mission Bay is a new 43-acre campus located in the Mission Bay neighborhood in San Francisco. The campus was originally planned in 1999 to accommodate approximately 2.65 million square feet of research, clinical, housing, and support facilities. By 2009, the campus had rapidly grown to a point where 73% of the original site was either built-out or under construction, with significant additional development entitlement remaining. The purpose of this study was to review and update the prior master plan with specific focus on: ยง Maximizing the development opportunity on the remaining parcels. ยง Investigating opportunities for increasing the approved development envelope (height, massing, etc.) on opportunity sites while retaining and improving the quality of life for researchers, students, residents and visitors to the campus. The Phase Two Study explored development alternatives. The impetus for the study was to consider the potential for increasing development beyond the current 2.65 million gross square foot entitlement. The alternatives included elements to enhance the campus pedestrian environment and outdoor recreation; provide options for additional housing; reassess parking supply, demand and locations; and evaluate land use locations, building footprints, massing and design. The scope of work included numerous meetings and outreach efforts with the University community, representatives of the surrounding Mission Bay and Potrero Hill neighborhoods, and various departments of the City of San Francisco. Potential development opportunity sites were defined based on this initial research.

Broadmoor Campus Master Plan and Phase I Buildings Austin, Texas This master plan for a 64-acre site in Austin sought to redevelop an existing corporate campus into a dense and vibrant mixed-use district with residential, retail, and high-tech office space. The existing site contains eight office buildings, two parking garages, and surface parking lots. The plan was organized into a grid that maintained maximum flexibility for the timeline of replacing existing structures while allowing new development to fill in around them. An existing public transit line runs along one side of the property, and the plan proposed the relocation of an existing station in a nearby undeveloped area to the edge of this property to better serve this site, an adjacent corporate campus, and another mixed-use district. The primary street of the proposed plan functions as the principle retail spine and links the new transit station through the development to the adjacent district. Page is following up on the preliminary Master Plan work with design work for multiple highrise mixed use office buildings (office/retail + multifamily) as well as the new rail station.
