Chongqing Huayu City

The Huayu Center is planned as a Commercial and Residential complex in the city’s Shapingba area. The planning and design strategy targeted on clarity of pedestrian connectivity, scale and an eclectic architectural vocabulary to create a destination within the city that would be global in its varied components and regional in its detail. The five-level mall allows for grade level entrances on each floor taking advantage of the site’s terrain while a series of outdoor streets and cascading steps connect the retail lifestyle component in a quintessentially Chongqing style. The 200m hotel & branded apartment tower defines an elegantly sculpted profile capped by an exclusive club and observation deck. More

Strata, At Mission Bay

This mixed-use project is part of Mission Bay, an extensive redevelopment effort in downtown San Francisco. Located just a few blocks from the city’s downtown ballpark, this project is part of an effort to create a new residential neighborhood and retail destination along Fourth Street. The building combines a modern, urban architectural vernacular with a community-oriented approach to massing and street presence. Two-story retail spaces (limited in size to encourage local business) front Fourth Street, with two-story townhouses opening onto the smaller “neighborhood” streets on the sides of the project. Residential parking is tucked behind the retail and townhouses, topped by a third-story podium with clubhouse and fitness areas, and lands... More

The 88

This high-density urban mixed-use project, which sits in the heart of downtown adjacent to the city’s light rail system, creates a resort lifestyle within a dense urban setting. The 22-story tower, the tallest residential building between San Francisco and Los Angeles, rises from mid-rise structures below, overlooking the residential amenities – a pool, recreation center and fitness facility – located on the podium. A new vehicular street and auto court bisects this city block, allowing more street frontage for the street-level retail. The project also provides structured parking for both the residents (above grade) and the general public (below grade). More
