A new generation has energized our downtown. A communal atmosphere of open collaboration and interaction has replaced the typical open cubicle office. The desire to be all consumed and surrounded by likeminded organizations with a rekindled attitude towards downtown. This spirit is captured in the project by combining a café, lounge, residential and open bay modular office spaces. A 14 bay complex designed for inter-collaboration among the tenants.
Mesh screens surround the exterior to filter and screen from the harsh environment, while enabling a shadowing of figures to move across the complex. Within, spaces are open and view across to each other. The café and lounge are included to provide informal spaces in which to gather.
The materials of the complex are humble; weathered steel, board formed concrete, mesh and plaster arranged to encourage an openness of form and interaction. The project is an attempt to refresh an area of downtown located between the office and arts district. The complex infills a portion of 1st Avenue now under a redevelopment effort to improve the streetscape
