  • 1. WORK SAMPLE Fillmore Place Retail Denver, Colorado This project is simply about unifying three different buildings with three different finish floor heights in one architectural gesture. One wall section was developed and highly detailed to accommodate various conditions of the project. This new wall section became known as the “retail wrapper” as it was extruded around the base of the three buildings adjacent to Fillmore Plaza. Glass was used for the retail wrapper because it served dual purposes to activate the entire project. The reflec- tive nature of the glass store front will echo the activity on the plaza during the day, and at night it will allow the interior spaces to filter out onto the plaza and reactivate it through light and shadow. Features like these as well as others seek to bring this project to a level of simplicity and presence not currently available in this prominent shopping district.

  • 2. WORK SAMPLE 1127 Sherman Denver, Colorado This 30,000 square foot building is the new home of the Colorado State Land Board in a historic neighborhood of downtown Denver. The project is an urban infill along a street with a mix of residential and commercial buildings. The design of the build- ing needed to be contextual with its surroundings, but sought to have a more modern presence on the block. Bronze colored mullions and blonde colored brick were used to contrast and visually connect the building to its neighbors. Features such as the roof terrace, underground parking and bicycle racks add to the many sustainable aspects of this building that exemplify the Colorado State Land Board’s core values. Completed: 2009 Building Area: 25,000 sf
  • 3. WORK SAMPLE 385 Interlocken Broomfield, Colorado 385 Interlocken, aka, Central Park Tower is the fourth project in a series of corporate office buildings that have been completed by Gensler in the last ten years. Due to the buildings location, the design has no front or back. Rather, the building is symmetrical about the diagonal axis. The façade design is a folded billboard of glass and glass fiber reinforced polymer concrete (GFRPC) panels. Entrances are defined by canopies below the apex of the billboard and their adjacent ribbons of glass allow the lobby interiors to be filled with natural light. The lobby interior has features such as double height ceilings, custom stone panels, rich wood accents and sleek glass and metal accents, which exemplify a modern interpretation of traditional building materials. Central Park Tower is a modern interpretation of the previously designed buildings and exemplifies the quality standards set before it. Phase: Under Construction Building Area: 300,000 sf LEED Certification: Silver
  • 4. WORK SAMPLE University of Michigan Student Activities Building Ann Arbor, Michigan The University of Michigan Student Activities Building is the first place a prospective student visits for a tour of the campus. It is also the hub of everyday student life with the housing, financial aid and M-card offices all located within this building. The existing building was a compilation of renova- tions and additions dating from 1960 to 1996. As a result, the interior space lacked a unity and an openness that allowed for easy navigation. The new renovation sought to open up the interior spaces like a window and expose the department functions contained inside. Floor materials and ceiling planes are designed to fuse together the various building additions and visually connect the departments. In addition, sustainable materials are incorporated throughout the renovation further enhancing the University’s renewable story. Completed: 2008 Building Area: 109,000 sf
  • 5. WORK SAMPLE Playhouse Grand Rapids, Michigan ArtWorks, a non-profit organization that introduces kids to the arts, sponsored a playhouse compe- tition among teams of architects and local high school students. The goal was to design and build a playhouse for auction as well as teach the students about the field of architecture. Our playhouse design is an expression of positive and negative and light and dark. It is purposefully expressive in its use of color and design to express that a house can take on many forms while maintaining the same characteristics of a typical house. The introduction of alternative building materials such as galvanized metal, acrylic panels and stainless steel offer a contrast to the wood structure. Ad- ditionally, the development of the outdoor spaces became as critical as the development of the interior room and as a result, the playhouse can be experienced in its totality. Our intention was for this playhouse to foster creativity, individuality and an awareness of place within each person that experiences it. Completed: 2003
  • 6. WORK SAMPLE St. John Medical Center Macomb Township, Michigan A place for people is the focus of this outpatient medical center. Warm and inviting, not cold and clinical was the mantra throughout the design process. So often going to the hospital can be a stressful activity so features such as natural light- ing, wood accents and an inviting color palette are used to give the building a calming presence and a home-like quality to ease that tension. Addition- ally, this project will serve as a gateway for a future hospital expansion and continued quality healthcare service for the community of Macomb Township. Completed: 2005
  • 7. PMD Legal Web + Graphic Design In April 2009 I was commissioned to develop a brand and marketing strategy for a startup interna- tional law firm called PMD Legal. The challenge for this project was to create a logo, business cards, website and marketing materials in less than three weeks. Clean lines and bold colors were used to reflect the firm’s fresh interpretation on the traditional law firm.
