    OUR GOALS:
  • PROGRAMMATIC ASPECTS OF THE HARBOR SCHOOL’S MARINE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER Programmatic aspects were determined by the Harbor School and integrated into our design such that it would create a comfortable and adequate space conducive to marine education . It is our hope that the design will be able to adapt well to shifting needs. First floor plan
  • Side Elevation and Section Creating Habitat - Protected Beach similar to the one constructed in Seattle described below. The beach will not only create habitat for fish and oysters , but will also allow students of the Harbor School an entry point into the water to study these species in their natural habitat
  • PROGRAMMATIC ASPECTS OF THE HARBOR SCHOOL’S MARINE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER Programmatic aspects were determined by the Harbor School and integrated into our design such that it would create a comfortable and adequate space conducive to marine education . It is our hope that the design will be able to adapt well to shifting needs. Second floor plan
  • Third Floor Plan: Public Space RESTAURANT complete with BAR, LOUNGE, and BALCONY facing Manhattan OFFICE SPACE Outfitted with ADAPTABLE SPACE, CONFERENCE ROOM, COPY ROOM, and LARGE EXECUTIVE OFFICE
  • Alternative Energy: Ground Source Heat Pumps Geothermal heat pumps offer high efficiency and low operating cost. According to the EPA, geothermal heat pumps can save homeowners 30 to 70 percent on heating and 20 to 50 percent on cooling costs over conventional systems. This information, as well as, reports that have been made by builders who monitor their in-place systems indicate that heating and cooling savings can range between $358 and $1,475, annually. A geothermal heat pump system is a heating and/or an cooling system that uses the Earth´s ability to store heat in the shallow ground or water thermal masses The shallow ground temperature (50-61 F) is warmer than the air above during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer
  • Cost Analysis The building’s 3 floors total an area of19200 sq ft With a burden including fees/bonds/insurance etc. , we estimated $430 per square foot new and $230 per square foot renovated. (NB: Number acquired from David Williams at Davis, Brody, Bond specific to work on Governors Island) The base cost is therefore: (top floors:) 2 * 7777 sqft * $430/sqft + (first floor:) 3648 sqft *$ 230/sqft ; or $7,527,260 It is then necessary to add the cost of the geothermal heat pump: Initial Cost : On average, a geothermal heat pump system costs about $2,500 per ton of capacity, or roughly $7,500 for a 3-ton unit (a typical residential size); our building demands a 60-ton unit, which would therefore cost an additional $150,000 for the ground source heat pump The glass roof is another ambitious aspect of our design, and if it costs $11,774 per 2,000 sqft of glass, and our building requires 8,000 square feet of roof; $50,000 for the glass roof Marine equipment must also be considered as an expenditure. A 5-ton marine crane as requested is estimated to cost $20,000, and docks are estimated at $40 per sqft, for 2,000 sqft of docks; or 80,000 $100,000 for marine equipment Total = 7,527,260 + 150,000 + 50,000 + 100,000 = 7,827,260 Total cost estimate: $8 million
  • Potential Phasing Plan
    • Phase 1: (for the first $2 million)
    • The first floor: complete with Marine Science Lab, Educational Beach, and Marine Technology Lab
    • The boat storage space, 5 ton crane, and dock space
    • (The current second floor can be kept and used as is)
    • Phase 2: (for an additional $3M; totaling $5 M)
    • Second Floor addition, as designed
    • Drywall, brick, or alternative materials can be used instead of floor-to-ceiling glass panels
    • Phase 3: (for the final $3M; totaling $8M)
    • The Sustainably Green Monkeys’ proposal in all its glory.
    • The addition of the third floor introduces lucrative revenue-making opportunities

  • Summary of Key Design Aspects
    • Harbor School
      • Increased square footage from original proposal
      • Separate public/private space: potential card-only access
      • Protected academic beach
      • 5 ton boat crane and neighboring storage facility
      • Abundance of docks
    • Architectural style of both the past and present
      • Drawn from the original footprint of Building 134
        • The first floor’s exterior walls remain the same
      • Use of brick complements the style of neighboring historical architecture
      • Building shape interacts with the landscape
        • Cantilevers over water’s edge and esplanade
        • Directly off the esplanade for easy access
        • Academic beach that runs under structure and creates habitat for sea bass and oysters
      • Glass façade and geometry create architecture relevant to the 21 st Century
    • Public Spaces
      • Separated from the Harbor School by public stairway and elevator
      • Prospective Revenue Opportunities
        • Restaurant
          • As Governors Island’s first tenants, the restaurant will establish itself as the most elegant restaurant on the island
        • Office Space to lease or rent
          • Outfitted with adaptable space, conference room, copy room, and large executive office
  • Angela Chou, Harrison Taylor , Matt Wang, and Travis Weyneth
