Project Location: Grants Pass, Oregon

This building was designed (currently unbuilt) in response to an RFP put for by the State of Oregon Department of Administrative Services for a service center building in Grants Pass to house three agencies. The building responded to the program requirement for employee outdoor space by providing a sheltered interior courtyard. In the mild climate of Grants Pass, this space can be used 10 months out of the year. The court had the added benefit of providing natural light to interior spaces in the building, reducing the amount of artificial lighting needed by occupants.

After the first round of submittal review, the project was shelved for budgetary reasons.
