Awards 

American Institute of Architects New Hampshire - Young Architects Competition, 1st Place

"Whitcomb GRID"
Historic Town Hall Renovation

Jury Comments:

"This is the “Swiss army knife” of the competition with a lot of practical details that enhanced the user experience while preserving the overall character of Whitcomb Hall. The idea of the grid was a good defining concept, which not only brought order to the interior spaces, but also provided a good alternative to accessorizing the outdoor lawn to the west. This provided for a number of additional outdoor events to enhance the use of Whitcomb Hall to include: farmers markets, movie nights, concerts, and other various public gatherings.

The proposal’s connection to the site was not only the most sensitive, but also the most elegant. By providing an addition to the north of the site to meet most of the program requirements, the Hall itself remained intact from the exterior preserving its public face and historic character. The addition included a backstage area with a pivoting scenery wall on the upper level, while the ground floor included a new kitchen, elevator and stair for public access. Overall, Whitcomb Hall was preserved as the focal point on the village green while the adaptive re-use of the large expansive west lawn combined to validate the Hall as the “premier event facility in the southwest region of the State."

American Institute of Architects New Hampshire - Young Architects Competition, 1st Place

"Portsmouth LOOP"
Bicycle Center Facility

Jury Comments:

Adam's design, The Loop, creates a subtle, formally graceful and powerful urban solution containing the most interesting public space out of all the entries. The flow and experience of the design is enjoyable and is reminiscent of someone riding on a bicycle. The handling of program creates a poetic experience from clear and simple goals that speaks to the movement of bicycles and the integration of bicycle routes along the seacoast of New Hampshire. The thoughtful consideration of site and context and integration of cycling, pedestrian, and public activity is successful by not trying to fill the proposed site with an overbearing building.

"Oil"Balloon"

Response to the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The giant ballon grows and grows, filling with oil, until the pressure if finally relieved. A team of scuba divers crop the end and the balloon in released to the surface. The fragile vessel begins its journey... floating around the world following ocean currents... narrowly missing shoreline after shoreline... a constant reminder that disaster is only a mater of time.
