Center

for

This site which is located in the city center of Évora, Portugal is surrounded by vast Medival and Roman walls and is adjacent to a university. The project is intended to act as a gathering focal point for the city between the civic and academic and old and new. The plaza is adjacent to the university portico and connects the park path to the street creating a flowing movement. The entrance to the Academic and Public Wings are joined with the cafe spilling into the exterior space. All this is created while still giving a visual and physical relationship to the interior greenscape and Medival wall.

Habitat

In conjunction with Habitat for Humanities, Paterson, three lots were chosen to create homes. Two of the lots were to attain a one family house with off-street parking, while the third lot held a two family house, one of which had to be ADA compliant. Consideration of building code/variances, pricing, mechanical systems/ passive design, and materiality had a major impact on design.
