Environmentally conscious desert architecture which employs an idea that is vibrant and fresh 

The overall design objective was to approach the unique qualities of designing in the Sonoran Desert in a manner that is organic and expressive. The project is characterized by a long narrow site that led to the development of a building that contains vertically designed “light courts” cut into the elongated office floor plates. The layering of “skins” along the south elevation, allows for management of the sun through perforated screening suspended from the glass curtain wall. The north elevation of the building serves as a transparent surface of glass with expansive views while allowing the interior of the building to be seen.
