Yesterday I had the chance to visit PCC: Willow Creek with my former colleagues and design team at GBD Architects, Inc. I'd say the project was a great success and sets new precedent for our local community college. My role included space planning, finish selection, and interior detail development. Hopefully we'll have access to some professional photos in the near future, but mine will have to do for now. Enjoy!
PCC: Willow Creek
Ground Floor Circulation
Main Circulation Spine
The blue canopies call out classrooms and PCC offices
Lighting design by Benya
A pop of playfulness with Maharam wallcovering. This is a perfect example of standard fixtures required by public institutions. In order to keep streamlined maintenance, all fixtured must be uniform, thus, the dispenser mounted on the concrete wall. Sometimes the designer just can't control everything!
We are shooting for LEED Platinum!
Terra Cotta Rain Screen
These sculptures actually rise and fall in correspondence with the property's water cistern. They serve as a great educational element.

Some simple elevation drawings we produced as a take home for our client out in West Linn. These serve as great descriptive tool for remodel and new construction projects. Our drawings are out to bid right now and construction should start next month.

We have updated our portfolio to include some additional projects and (thanks to your feedback) have tweaked our colors for enhanced readability! Be sure to refresh your browser if the site shows up as the old peach scheme. Thanks!

January 15-17: Heath Ceramics will donate 25% of sales from their Sausalito, LA & online stores to Architecture for Humanity’s earthquake reconstruction efforts in Haiti.
If you were already planning on buying new dishware, or remodeling your kitchen with Heath's handmade tiles, let this be the little nudge you needed to take the plunge. Not only will you be supporting a small, American business, you will be contributing to a larger humanitarian effort put forth by Architecture for Humanity.
I recently visited the Portland Ann Saks showroom for project research and noticed their new line of Heath Ceramics bath accessories. Handmade in Sausalito, CA, their timeless simplicity is sure to outlast current market trends and cheap imitations.
