2045 COLUMBIA STREET

A main focus of the design is to define an expressive form that complements the larger development to the south, and successfully inhabit this challenging small parcel. A rigorous form of concrete and glazing creates and interesting visual mass floating above grade. The expansive use of glass and shading structures enhance the exterior design and highlight the exposure to and relationship with the large existing tree adjacent to the site to the east, making it an integral aspect of the building frontage. A detailed layering of exterior screens add both texture to the building exterior and provide a design solution for parking area screening at grade.
