Expectations

Studio 804 is committed to the continued research and development of affordable and inventive building solutions. This is done by examining on all levels, the standards of human comfort and the nature of urban spaces. With issues of sustainability, affordability and efficiency dominating our collective interests, Studio 804 educates students through the experience of all aspects embodied by a holistic approach that includes not only the design but students doing all the building as well. Studio 804 produces one building per year and it is through the support of organizations and individuals committed to environmental stewardship that we are able to continue our service to the community at large and educate the general public through the use of innovative technologies.

With a new group of graduate students participating each year, Studio 804 endeavors to create a valuable experience that prepares students for work in a rapidly changing profession. Students are immersed in a comprehensive process that imparts confidence, resolve and entrepreneurial awareness. Studio 804 will continue to achieve building innovations through the creation of sustainable architecture with a high level of craft, exceed traditional design models, promote the creative use of materials and utilize innovative technologies. Studio 804 hopes to share the social vision of like-minded entities and foresees a partnership in which both organizations achieve their mission to better the community through education and the development of affordable, sustainable and energy-efficient buildings. We anticipate the realization of our goals and appreciate your time and consideration of our request.

Sincerely, Dan Rockhill, JL Constant + ACSA Distinguished Professor University of Kansas Studio 804, Inc. | www.studio804.com dan@rockhillandassociates.com


University of Kansas School of Architecture & Design Studio 804 is a nine-month comprehensive educational opportunity for graduate students who are entering the final year of the Master of Architecture program at the KU School of Architecture and Design. During each academic year, students enrolled in the full-time class design and construct a building of great technical sophistication.

Our Studio is underpinned by three foundational elements. The first is 22 years of dedication to the continuing research and development of sustainable, affordable, and inventive building solutions.

The second is service to our Kansas communities. This is typified by recent projects built by the studio, including the beautiful 5.4.7 Arts Centers for tornado-ravaged Greensburg and multiple affordable housing prototypes in disadvantaged neighborhoods in the Kansas City area.

In 2012 we completed the Galileo’s Pavilion for Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, in 2013 we built EcoHawks on KU’s campus, and in 2014 Studio 804 constructed The Forum at Marvin Hall. These university projects define the scale and scope that our studio is capable of each year.

The third element that characterizes Studio 804 is our unique instructional model. From its inception, under the stewardship of the KU Department of Architecture’s J.L. Constant Distinguished Professor Dan Rockhill, Studio 804’s remarkable hands-on design-build program is the envy of architecture schools worldwide.

Studio 804’s portfolio boasts of ten Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certified buildings, including the first building in Kansas to recieve this honorable status, the 5.4.7 Arts Center for Greensburg. Other LEED Platinum buildings by Studio 804 include Galileo’s Pavilion in Overland Park, the KU EcoHawks research facility, the Forum at Marvin Hall on the KU campus, the Springfield residence in Kansas City, and the Pennsylvania and Brook Street houses in Lawrence. In addition to acheiving LEED Platinum status, the Prescott house, KU Center for Design Research, and New York Street house have also received Passive House Institute certifications.


About

|

Studio 804, Inc.

Our work is recognized internationally in nearly two hundred architectural publications and presentations by Dan Rockhill. Our success is made possible through the contributions of like-minded organizations and individuals also committed to environmental stewardship, community service and improving the education of tomorrow’s leaders in the field of architecture. Studio 804, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It allows the donated materials and funds that make our work possible to be tax deductible.

Over 500 organizations have already shared Studio 804’s vision of a better world that comes from service to the community and the research and design that produces affordable, sustainable, and energy-efficient buildings. Many students who received their Masters of Architecture after having succeeded in Studio 804 now lead the sustainability aspect of architecture firms, large and small.

We have also consistently designed our buildings to integrate the most cutting-edge building products available. Their use provides an opportunity for domestic and international companies to showcase products in the U.S. market. The public outreach effort that is a part of the buildings we construct allows local manufacturers’ representatives to use them for the in-place demonstration of their products.

In addition to designing, hiring consultants, establishing budgets, producing construction documents, getting permits and doing the physical act of building, Studio 804 students solicit most donations. This helps them understand and appreciate the vital role that building product manufacturers and suppliers play in bringing new technologies to market, as well as the real costs of the components they will use in construction.

1220 12th Street House

PROJECT STATEMENT The 12th Street House seeks to maintain a high level of sustainable design as well as remaining contextually sensitive to the East Lawrence community. As we design toward LEED Platinum standards, we are integrating passive strategies for lighting and sun shading. Applying unobstructed glazing to the East side of the building provides the home with natural lighting and warmth, allowing for optimal temperatures and comfortable living yearround. Fritted glass panels along the remaining elevations of the building give it a unified material language and admit diffused light into the living spaces. We are also selecting materials based on a desire for longevity and ease of maintenance, including the re-purposed metal panel cladding system and insulated glass units for the glazing. The following is a list of features considered in the building design: LOCATION: The Brook Creek Neighborhood has a long history of community involvement and recreation. The site for this project was formerly a recycling scrapyard. Our house will be the first in a series of new residences that aim to strengthen the neighborhood’s modern aesthetic. The 12th Street house is directly adjacent to Brook Creek Park and its planned expansion, within two blocks of East Heights Elementary School and the East Lawrence Community Center, and within a mile of downtown Lawrence. INSULATION: For sustainability purposes, our design will contain considerably more insulation than is required by code, for an estimated minimum R-value of 45 for the walls and 63 for the roof. SOLAR: A PV array on the roof is designed to target net zero energy.

AIR BARRIER: The air barrier prevents thermal leakage contributing to energy efficiency. REFLECTIVE ROOFING: The white TPO roof membrane mitigates the heat island effect. EXTERIOR SHEATHING: The cladding is composed of repurposed insulated metal panels and insulated glass units to enhance views of the nearby park and introduce natural daylight into the home. WINDOWS & DOORS: Energy efficient windows and doors contribute to the high R-value of the wall assembly and the overall performance of the building. INTERIOR FINISHES: All finishes are low VOC emitting. LIGHTING & ELECTRICAL: All fixtures use LEDs and are EnergyStar Rated. MECHANICAL SYSTEM: The high-efficiency, low energy consumption HVAC system uses an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) to supply fresh air to the home without thermal energy loss. PLUMBING SYSTEM: Efforts were taken to limit wet wall conditions and consolidate piping, and lowflow fixtures reduce water usage. APPLIANCES: Energy Star appliances are used to reduce energy consumption. LANDSCAPING: Native plants placed around the site help sustain the natural local ecosystem.

1220 12th Street House

In a unique position between the eclectic East Lawrence neighborhood aesthetic and the calm atmosphere of the surrounding natural environment, the 1220 12th Street house’s location allows residents to remain a part of the urban fabric while enjoying the great outdoors. The City of Lawrence’s projected expanded trail system will bring wooded paths through the land surrounding the house on the North and East sides. The city-owned lot adjacent to our site is also home to the second largest Bur Oak tree in Kansas, a state-protected tree that will provide on-site shading and scenic views for the residents of the house. The 1220 12th Street house is located on a 60’ x 170’ lot, making the standard 40’ x 132’ lots in the surrounding area appear small in comparison. This spacious site allows the flexible concept of the house’s design to extend to the rest of the property. The kitchen and living room are designed to be adaptable in their usage by following an open floor plan. An additional space was also included in the house’s design to be used flexibly as the owner prefers, for instance as an additional bedroom or home office. A main corridor clad in glass along the East side of the house connects the shared and private spaces and provides an expansive view of the natural landscape adjacent to the site.

1220 12th Street House

In addition to the primary residence on our site, we took advantage of the RS7 zoning in the area by designing an accessory dwelling that can be used in several ways, such as a rentable living space or detached housing for a family member. The accessory dwelling will function as its own livable unit with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and storage space. The accessory dwelling is located behind the primary house, connected by a stretch of yard that can potentially act as a common space between them. Both structures will use similar materials, strengthening their visual connection while still remaining separate entities. The result will be an attractive, adaptable, and comfortable home combination that sets a precedent for new developments within the East Lawrence community.


Past Projects Beginning with the first residence in 1998, Studio 804 has an established track record of award winning projects. Studio 804 achieved the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification in the state with the Sustainable Prototype for Greensburg. LEED Platinum is a standard to which Studio 804 designs to each year. The current project is expected to be the eleventh LEED Platinum building.
