Portfolio2008 Oct Jm

  1. 1. Jeffrey E. Miller AIA LEED Studio3 JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  2. 2. The Hatchery is an elementary school covered play area with a multipurpose room above. The 1,600SM addition immediately provided recreation space for the expanding campus. The building connects on the second level to existing school corridors that allow students to enter without having to don outerwear. The “Hatchery” Covered Play Area @ SAS Pudong In subsequent years, the open sides of the covered basketball court was filled in on two sides to block strong East China Sea breezes. The result was to create an outdoor room capable of year- round use and complemented a courtyard playground. The multi-purpose room has a wall of mirrors covered with mats when not in use. The room serves as dance hall, ES gym, and functional meeting room. At a time when the school was still young and expanding, these stacked program spaces filled an important niche. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  3. 3. The Gym and Performance Theatre combines two unlikely companion programs into a unique stacked structure. The 4,000SM facility has classrooms, a two court gym, and locker rooms that are structurally isolated from a 400-seat theatre and classrooms below. MS Gym and Performance Theatre @ SAS Pudong The construction of the MS Gym allowed for valuable athletic teaching space to be provided for the expanding campus. The unique stacking of gym over theatre demanded research of several approaches to isolate sound transmission. The team developed a box-within-box structure that allows multiple functions to operate in complete isolation and without interruption or scheduling conflicts. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  4. 4. The Shanghai American School Middle School Classrooms provide administrative offices, labs, a library, and classrooms for an expanding enrollment. The three- story 12,000SM facility strives to breakdown the large program into various forms recalling a village of buildings. MS Classrooms SAS Pudong The MS was the first portion of the master plan beginning the main street corridor that would link all facilities. The three-story glass corridor emerges in sections over the four years it took to complete the campus. The MS had to be very flexible to accommodate various grades and program requirements as the campus grew. As an example, the multi-purpose room has served as computer classroom, ES library, and blackbox theatre over the four years of development. Lounges have transformed into reception areas and classrooms have served as MS and HS faculty. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  5. 5. The SAS Media Center is the heart of the campus. It contains a beautiful double height library, a library living room, two computer classrooms, and plenty of wi-fi. Upper floors have HS laboratories, music, and arts classrooms. The dining hall has a foodcourt approach that is the envy of the international school community. Dining and Music Arts SAS Pudong The center of the campus contains all the functions that make a school great for living and learning. It is the location that feeds the minds and stomachs of students, parents, and staff. Second level bridges connect the MS to the LMC and continue on through to the HS. Circulation between the grades and center is at the essence of the design. The LMC has become the place to meet with friends and faculty. The dining is open all day, the library caters to students and parents, the music and arts have performances and galleries, and the 75 seat lecture hall provide an excellent place for community and conferences. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  6. 6. The Shanghai American School Library Media Center contains 12,000SM of services that are a showpiece for international schools around the world. Library Media Center SAS Pudong The school requested highly flexible spaces that could accommodate multiple classes and also have the ability to allow breakout sessions of smaller student groups. The solution was to provide folding walls to isolate corners of the library. In the living room, semi-enclosed meeting rooms form blocks within an open space. Furniture and smaller meeting rooms then provide space for individual instruction or wide open presentation space. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  7. 7. The High School portion of the campus was an exception project that pushed classroom space to meet fast expanding enrollment. The project included three floors of high school classrooms, administration and admissions, two high school gyms, a wrestling room, a weight room, and both gym and athletic locker rooms. HS Classes, Gym & Aquatic SAS Pudong The buildings are all designed to fit in the style of the existing campus. The team worked very closely with faculty and administrative personnel in order to provide the specific requirements demanded of an international education and the International Baccalaureate degree. As with all international work, there is a special concentration on security. Setbacks are determined by US State Department guidelines. The campus fencing that surrounds the fields and buildings were part of the overall project. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  8. 8. Shanghai American School has two campuses - Pudong and Puxi. The older Puxi campus newest addition is a ES library and music arts building to rival the best secondary schools in the world. The 4,000SM project doubled the size of the ES library, reconfigures the entire two floor classroom layout, and provided dedicated art and music classrooms. Arts / Media Center SAS Puxi The project places three houses attached to the main stacks of the library. The exterior of each house mimics traditional Chinese construction found in the mountainous regions west of Shanghai. Each building provides quite space for discussion, story time, or lounging. Two computer classrooms complete the mix. The arts rooms are provided with even Northern light best suited for drawing and painting. A kiln is housed in faculty offices between classrooms. There are band, orchestra and 2 practice rooms for music. Everything is connected to the existing building via a 2-story glass gallery atrium. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  9. 9. Philadelphia Biblical University, located in Langhorne, is a 5,000 student campus on the verge of growing to 7,000. The University needed on-campus housing to replace deteriorating off campus apartment buildings. The solution came when an adjacent assisted living facility came up for sale. Heritage Hall & MSP Philadelphia Biblical University The University completed the interior renovations in one summer and was able to fill the residence hall. PBU then embarked on a master planning process to better define their campus enter and begin laying out programs for future growth. The months long process provided the school with a dramatic transformation to their sprawling campus. The core component of the plan was to tread lightly on the grounds. Landscape Architects Lager Rabe Skafte rendered a plan that links the campus on a central walkway and controls storm water run-off. The campus adds a new chapel, 2 dormitories, a field house, an artificial field and expansions to both music and library. The new central quad will create a stunning front yard for the chapel.

  10. 10. The Wilmington Savings Fund Society (WSFS) took inventory of their home of 100-years and decided it was time to move to a new Bucinni Pollin project being constructed nearby. Their historic bank building with huge N.C. Weyth mural was slated for conversion into high-end apartments.

  11. 11. The Pearl of Shanghai is designed to be the destination stop in Pudong. The Dragon, curling at the base of the Pearl Tower, was conceived as an entertainment center on steroids! It contains and outdoor amphitheatre, an indoor skating rink, a multiplex movie theatre and a swank casino cabaret. There is nothing small in China. Pearl of Shanghai SEPTA Station Renovations JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  12. 12. The Seoul Foreign School is the most prestigious private secondary school in South Korea. Their outstanding faculty make the school what it is. The expansion of the ES classroom and overall campus dining would solidify this reputation. Theatre, Dining, Classroom Seoul Foreign School Seoul is a populated city with mountainous terrain making development tricky and expensive. To address this, the ES expansion builds additional floors on the existing school and makes special use program stacking. Though hard to believe the building has a theatre, ES and HS dining, classrooms, library, and roof-top tennis courts! The building burrows into the hillside and uses a box-in-box structure to isolate the theatre. The addition allows enrollment to expand and provides much need upgrades to core facilities. It is the first step in a multi-year master plan. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
  13. 13. The Atlantic Aviation Headquarters at PHL include an 8,300 square foot executive terminal building for corporate, pilot, and visitor use. The terminal is designed to serve as a resource center and home base for out-of- town business executives and corporate pilots. Atlantic Aviation @ PHL Housed within it are two conference rooms; five workspace phone carrels with data port connection; a spacious lounge for informal meetings; a visitor office; a pilot lounge, snooze room, and flight plan room; and all the administrative and training space required by Atlantic. The interior is filled with daylight by using special glass to reduce noise from the apron. Additionally, two 22,000 square foot hangars with attached tenant spaces house up to 16 individual corporate offices. All storage and limited maintenance for up to 25 planes per hangar takes place here. Located farther east on the apron is a fuel storage and dispensing area to accommodate private fueling needs. A 6,500 square foot ground equipment maintenance building includes two additional tenant spaces. JeffMillerAIA@comcast.net Studio3 Architecture http://home.comcast.net/~jeffmilleraia
