EC4I - Everett St. Middle School & Center for Inspiring Inventors

The basis of this studio was too look at a new form of mixed-use program for an Urban setting. The professor established the main use of this building was to be a junior high school for NW Portland while also maintaining a separate use of our choice. I chose for the second use to be a product design firm and center for inspiring inventors. I felt this other use could become an integral part of the schools curriculum. The site, on the corner of NW Everett St. & 4th St. was a very tight and challenging site for such a program. This led to a U-shaped building to bring light into the building and provide a central courtyard. The plan became a very open design as to allow light to leak throughout the building. The main pathways are a series of catwalks that weave in and out of the rooms.The facade was something I struggled with throughout the term, but ended up with something I can be proud of. My original design was predominantly glazing with a solid band weaving through the facade. Eventually that flipped to what you see here. The main walls are limestone panels in black aluminum frames, with the glazing weaving through it. The middle floors are a dark wood enclosure that defines the library and classrooms of the school.
