Keystone Building Residential Conversion (F@TT)
A brilliant intervention to a concrete structure. This conversion executed with taste and restraint provides calm and comfortable living spaces while expressing the original reinforced concrete frame pays homage to the building’s original structure.
Dance Studio, Garage Bay Renovation
This is what architecture should be…and be about. A real eye-opener! Bravissimi!
Innovation and Leadership Pavilion
Clearly cutting edge design. The plan is open, both vertically and horizontally, with the stepped presentation theater affording access to and communication between the ground floor and upper floor. The glazing expresses the spirit of openess emodied in innovation; students at work inside can enjoy a vista of the campus while the view to the interior from the campus advertises what’s going on inside. Clearly visible structure conveys engineering, often a product of innovative research
John Stewart Memorial Library and Lenfest Learning Commons
A breath of fresh air for a grand old building. The Lenfest Learning Commons design transforms the old horizontal aspect ratio to vertical and adds a transverse gable which, with matching the grey granite of the original 1932 library, bringing the exterior of the Commons into conformity with the original campus style. This adaptation is likely appropriate to the Campus inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
An ideal adaptive reuse for the old foundations. We all wish we had such an exquisite woodshop. The millwork of the work stations reflects the wood working engaged in by the users – it’s detailing recalls generic desks and cabinetry from half a century ago. Individualized project stations separated from common areas for power tools and assembly tables ably program the activity types of the woodworkers trade translated for a hobbyist venue.

“The background story sets the stage,…quite fortuitous. This simple and clean intervention to the majestic bow-truss warehouse does it justice.”

“The building’s interior, where offices and meeting rooms communicate through expanses of glazing to the common spine suggests an open and fluid managerial style. That and the generous daylighting contemporary and comfortable furnishings give the impression of an agreeable workplace design.“
