Campus Context:

  • As the Chesapeake Campus has developed, we created the concept of jewels. These are unique works of architecture that complement the red brick buildings and add energy to the campus plan.
  • All the buildings find inspiration from beautiful scale and proportion.
  • They fit together and the spaces between buildings are as important as the structures themselves.
  • The bay windows that act as lanterns of energy.

Architectural Concept for Chesapeake Building One: 

  • A 21st century solution…
  • Beautiful scale and proportion.
  • The lantern is a rooftop edge.
  • The open perimeter atrium also allows light into the lower level.
  • The question is “How can you make natural gas visible?”
  • My goal is to create a sense that you are surrounded by CH4 in an almost vaporous condition…
  • Imagine living with the molecule…
  • MCF (million cubic feet) as in a measure of natural gas volume.
  • The building form emerges from the earth below the surface. This detail represents the idea of exploration.
  • The exposed stone wall in atrium reinforces the connection to geology.
