Terrace House 1

Terrace House 1 is a two-story rear addition to an existing terrace house driven by the desire for connectedness to family, the outdoors, and the creation of a retreat for a frontline medical worker. Context & Brief The project began when the client – a nurse – expressed a desire to upgrade her single-family detached residence to better meet her needs. Located in Ascot Vale, an inner-suburban locale approximately 6kms north-west of Melbourne, the existing home had been previously upgraded in the 90s but offered poor thermal comfort, little connection to the backyard, and a series of dark, under-utilised interior spaces.  As a frontline medical worker, often required to work nights, the client hoped for a nature-fille...

Bed Tower Addition: Henry Ford Allegiance Health

As part of Henry Ford Allegiance’s master plan, they wanted to provide more high-quality, single-occupancy inpatient rooms to deliver additional privacy to patients. To make strides toward this goal, HED first evaluated post-occupancy reviews from existing patient floors and determined best practices for the new rooms. Despite having to work within a set structural grid, the Henry Ford Allegiance addition would be all single bed rooms, and each would allow any level of care. The HED team built full-size mock-ups of the patient rooms and conducted review sessions with both the caregivers and patient advocates to test the space and provide feedback, generating real-time design adjustments to the model.  The result is a univers...

Wight Mountain Addition

The client wish was to add a simple carport next to the main dwelling purely for practical reasons. With the idea of the new car abode next to the acreage residence the dilemma of where to enter the house needed to be re-addressed. This gave the opportunity to create different outdoor rooms and courtyards which were subsequently added to the perimeter. Between the new garage and an awning roof a new courtyard creates a gathering arrival area, with juxtaposing roof pitches. Thus a pseudo language was set up for the other stages of the intervention along the northern and southern elevations. The new outdoor dining room roof mimics the slope of the main dwelling roof with plenty of natural ventilation and low edge walls creating a cosy Al f... More

Wayne State University Chemistry Building

To improve laboratory safety on campus, Wayne State University — a nationally recognized metropolitan research institution located in Midtown Detroit — required a renovation and expansion of its A. Paul Schaap Chemistry Building.  During the first phase of the renovation, modern laboratories and dedicated student spaces were incorporated into the north side of the building to encourage students to leave laboratories during breaks.  To create an open environment, windows between the labs and student spaces where also added to the space.  All of the existing fume hoods on the first and second floors were removed and replaced with new fume hoods, exhaust connections for glove box work and snorkel locations, which represents a fo...

University of Cincinnati Medical Sciences Building

HED leads the rehabilitation of the existing Medical Sciences Building, (MSB) in collaboration with STUDIOS Architecture and GPR Planners Collaborative, Inc.  The multi-phased project replaces the older building components and creates a new state-of-the-art learning and research center for the Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy. After the University’s comprehensive analysis was completed, it was determined that the most cost effective way to rehabilitate the 800,000 GSF of the MSB would be to first design and construct a building addition with about 200,000 GSF.  This multi-phase approach would reduce total project costs by allowing existing labs with major design flaws to be redesigned to accommodate new functions with less s...
