An office, a retail space, and occasionally an international arts exhibit.
UC Berkeley, 2014
The project proposes a new headquarters for an arts and culture non-profit in New Orleans. The 45,000 square-foot mixed-use/commercial headquarters is centered in a neighborhood with robust industrial history and burgeoning artistic culture, and is framed by ideas of flexible workplace design, adaptable gallery and exhibition space, and smart facade detailing.
This project encouraged comprehensive design thinking - including zoning analysis, structural engineering, egress, ADA access, security, HVAC and systems integration, material detailing, ROI optimization, ground-floor retail impact, environmental design and sustainability.
