CHS Field is conceived first as a park and a public space, and then as a sports venue. Working with the City of Saint Paul and the St. Paul Saints, an independent league franchise committed to providing a unique fan experience, the design team slipped a 7,000 seat ballpark into a remnant site between an interstate highway, an elevated bridge, a light rail operations facility and the historic Lower town District on the edge of the City’s business district.

The Titus brothers reached out to MH Architects to explore the concept of a new winery facility located in Napa Valley in 2012. The client’s stated goal was to express the spirit of Titus Vineyards wine through the architectural components of the winery design. MH Architects responded with a series of design iterations before narrowing the focus toward a design that best matched the client’s needs. During the process, architect and client reviewed the basics of production flow, matched hospitality requirements with current trends in the wine tourism industry, and created a building aesthetic which captured brand identity. The design team worked closely to accommodate the complex layout of shiny fermentation tanks which catalyze anaerobic reactions under the same roof which hosts aesthetically-conscious guests with discerning palates.
The Southwest corner of Titus Winery is characterized by the covered hospitality area overlooking surrounding vineyards. Exterior materials include cedar soffits, concrete board-form tilt-up walls, gunmetal blue panels above windows, and anodized aluminum window frames, Image Courtesy © Technical Imagery Studios

The design of this house in St. Michaels, Maryland was greatly influenced by environmental regulations, zoning requirements and restrictive building codes specific to this site. The existing Dutch Colonial Style house, built in 1989, was located within a One-Hundred Foot Buffer Zone on Solitude Creek, a small estuary in this Maryland Eastern Shore town. A recently adopted Floodplain Management Ordinance mandated that no new structures be built within the Buffer Zone, and that all renovated or altered existing structures be updated to meet new zoning, building and environmental code requirements.

Located just off the bustling Hayes Street corridor in San Francisco, this new contemporary French bistro aims to blur the distinctions between traditional and modern in its cuisine and design. Decidedly more casual than Chef Lee’s 3-star Michelin restaurant Benu, Monsieur Benjamin also obscures the relationship between comfort food and formal cuisine. This obfuscation is reflected in the design. Situated on the corner of Gough Street and the tree-lined Ivy alley, the new 98-seat restaurant aims to absorb the energy, urbanity and pedestrian scale of both streets, and will include outdoor seating on Ivy, all within view of Hayes Street.

The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center, opened in September 2015, is a new model for integrated, patient-centered orthopedic care. Growing out of an SOM master plan for the hospital’s Cincinnati campus, the 381,000-square-foot, seven-story facility houses approximately 90 inpatient rooms and 12 surgical suites. The building is filled with natural light and flexible semi-public spaces offer a place of respite for caregivers and families. Patient rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and are organized and furnished to provide a soothing environment to patients and their families. Decentralized nursing desks, located next to patient rooms, place caregivers closer to those they serve and keep the patient floor quiet by dispersing activity.

In August 2003, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey selected Santiago Calatrava to design one of the most emblematic projects in Lower Manhattan’s restoration: the reconstruction of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Based on Daniel Libeskind’s Masterplan, the new facility was to be located immediately east of the original World Trade Center Twin Towers. In January 2004, Santiago Calatrava unveiled his design.
