Harborport positions landscape at the intersection of storm water, dredging, event and transportation infrastructures by proposing a reactivation of the NYC waterways. Utilizing dredge materials, the proposal develops a temporary airport within NYC Harbor providing a means for existing infrastructure to be modernized without crippling the day-to-day activities of the city. Done in partnership with Sean Burkholder and Matthew Banton, this project was recognized as a Semi-finalist in the NYC One Prize competition.
Vacant to Vibrant
In partnership with the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Vacant to Vibrant focuses on creating green infrastructure and community green spaces on vacant parcels. The pilot effort focusses on three cities; Gary Indiana, Cleveland Ohio and Buffalo New York. A series of public forums generated design direction in each city. Moving forward redesigned sites will be monitored for performance of green infrastructure components.
Baltimore Farm Interiors
The interior renovation of this late 1800’s farm house and post and beam barn included design of custom kitchen cabinetry, family keepsake space with wood burning stove, master suite and guest bed and bathrooms. In the barn, the main space was made into an area for hosting gatherings of family and friends while the existing corn crib was converted into a two couple guest suite with a bathroom that includes a large walk-in shower lined with reclaimed silo siding.
This garden was designed to mediate between the varied influences of its context. Practically, it is a parking area for the studio and our clients. Aesthetically, it is a front lawn for our neighbors. Functionally, it is an infiltration area for storm water. Operationally, it is a work space for our practice.
