Kaiser Permanente Regional Reference LabCourtyard
Kaiser Permanente CourtyardKaiser Permanente retrofitted an old auto parts warehouse fortheir new support services center. The warehouse containedan existing courtyard with three mature Honey locust trees,several overgrown junipers, some concrete pavers, and turfgrass. Kaiser Permanente felt it was important to create anintimate space of respite for their employees as well as large aflexible gathering space. The new courtyard design includes adining patio adjacent to the building’s lunch/break room andfour intimate seating areas spaced along a crusher finespathway. Stacked sandstone benches and a circular planterdefine the edge of the dining patio and provide a sense ofdrama to the courtyard. The strong paving geometry issoftened by the native shrubs, perennial and ornamentalgrass plantings. The moveable tables and chairs on the patioafford fresh perspectives within the small outdoor space. Thequality and arrangement of these materials result in a spacewhich evokes a sense of comfort and relaxation. The result isa magnetic courtyard garden drawing momentary glancesfrom inside and eventually physical attraction to the outside.Client: Kaiser PermanenteLocation: Denver, COCompleted: 2006Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
University Corporation for Atmospheric ResearchFoothills Laboratory Zero Central Courtyard
UCAR Foothills Lab ZeroThe new lab building on the University Center forAtmospheric Research Campus created and empty spacebetween existing buildings resulting in an opportunity tocraft a memorable courtyard. The goal of the landscapedesign was to create a grand central gathering space thatconnects the new lab with the existing buildings on campus.The space is anchored with a large circular court serving asthe junction point for all walkways leading into the space.These meandering walks disperse from the gathering spaceto nearby parking areas and building entrances. The flowingwalkways alleviate the rigid geometry established by theexisting architecture, paving jointing and planting motif. Theplanting material was laid out to help reinforce the stronghorizontal banding of paving materials. Monocultures ofground covers and native grass species alternate on eithersides of these paving bands. More natural plantings occurwithin the surrounding beds that are defined by largesandstone blocks. These mass planting areas contain arepetitive mixture of ornamental grasses opposed by nativegrasses and perennials. The planting scheme allows forminimal use of natural resources and maintenance whileproviding an aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable space forall campus users.Client: University Corporation for Atmospheric ResearchLocation: Boulder, COCompleted: 2006Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
St. Joseph’s Medical Pavilion Entry PlazaThis plaza offers a place of respite and solitude forvisitors, staff and the neighboring community of St.Joseph’s Hospital. The plaza’s layout is fashioned afterthe previous park space and pedestrian movements thatonce occupied the corner of the site. The design offersmultiple access points into the plaza and embraces thecross axial pedestrian movement from the hospital toadjacent retail services. A variety of seating elementsoffer individuals and small groups a secure feeling ofcomfort within this modest space. Three raised concreteplanter seat walls were put in place to buffer adjacentstreet activities from the plaza space. Masses ofperennials and grasses provide an understory screenwhile above, Honeylocust trees offer dappled shade tothe plaza.Client: Exempla HealthcareLocation: Denver, COCompletion: 2007Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
Anschutz Health and Wellness CenterThe AHWC is a unique and exciting addition on theUniversity of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus thatwill serve the existing centers for Human Nutrition,Integrative Medicine, and Women’s Health Researchprograms. It is designed to empower individuals tostrive for health-conscious lives, promote healthiercommunities, and target pressing health issues such asdisease prevention.As proven by many research studies, a connection tothe landscape has many health benefits. Therefor thelandscape design strives for an inside-outsideconnection promoting a healthy lifestyle. Therelationship with the landscape starts with theextension of the bistro into an exterior patio. South ofthe bistro patio is a garden with plenty of seatingopportunities. The linear design of the garden plantingreflects the agrarian culture and connection of food andlandscape. The selected plant species appeal to allsenses including taste. Perennial herbs inside thegarden are aesthetically pleasing and can be used inthe demonstration kitchen. The connection to theoutdoors continues on the upper levels with theinception of an accessible green roof. Panoramic viewsmake this space the ideal for fundraisers and specialevents. Again the connection to a healthy lifestyle ismade with planting space to grow organic produce forthe bistro. Special accommodations have been madeto allow for a future greenhouse addition.Client: University of ColoradoLocation: Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora, COCompletion: 2012Services: DRB Approval, Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
Colorado State University Industrial Science BuildingCourtyard Renovation
Industrial Science Building CourtyardRenovationRedesign services for the Industrial Sciences Building(circa late 1800’s) for Colorado State Universitys Schoolof Construction Management included upgrading theexisting courtyard. The existing courtyard wasdeteriorating and needed a transformation to make thespace safe and functional for the ConstructionManagement students. Poor surface drainage over theyears had destroyed the existing hardscape making thespace unusable. Observing this, the redesign of thespace showcases the stormwater being generated bythe building and site. The courtyard demonstrates howhardscape pavements and plantings can convey, cleanand slowdown storm water runoff via a series ofinfiltration planters, bio-swales and porous pavementsystems.Roof storm runoff is directed into this courtyard ischanneled to different landscape planters or swales.Each planter allows the runoff to move through a seriesof lower planters. These series of planters slow thespeed of the runoff allowing it to percolate through aspecified soil mix and subgrade aggregate levels. Thisprocess helps purify the runoff before it returns andrecharges the groundwater systems and downstreamusers. Site storm runoff follows a similar process as itpercolates through different types of porous pavementand sub aggregate levels. The courtyard has become aliving and learning outdoor laboratory for theUniversity.Client: Colorado State University School of Construction ManagementLocation: Fort Collins, COCompletion: 2009Services: Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
Eaglecrest High School Performing Arts PlazaWith the expansion of the existing high school came theneed for a new and pronounced performing artsentry/drop-off sequence. The concept of a “grand plaza”was developed to celebrate the school’s new main entryand provide a large flexible outdoor space. The design ofthe plaza creates a series of individual spaces actingindependently of one another, but also functioning as onegrand plaza. The grand plaza is made up of three majorcomponents: a vehicle drop-off, a circular gatheringspace, and a pedestrian promenade. The new drop-offconsists of a concrete drive lane with a “zero edge” curboutlined by two “rumble strips” of concrete split facepavers. A string of bollards wrap the outer, edge furtherdelineating the drop-off area. The circular gatheringspace is also paved with split face pavers, mimicking aEuropean cobblestone piazza. The textural changedefines the space by giving it prominence within thelarger hardscape canvas. Rose sandstone seat wallsprovide a permeable physical edge to the circular spaceas well as offer informal seating for individuals and smallgroups. The promenade is the integrating elementbetween the building, plaza, and parking lot. The chosenplanting materials strengthen and provide separation ofthe three plaza components, while at the same timesoftening the plaza edges and seating areas.Client: Cherry Creek School DistrictLocation: Aurora, COCompletion: 2005Services: Entitlements, Concept Design through Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
