Transformational Next-Gen Learning

Next Generation Learning Design encompasses a holistic approach to educational spaces, reflecting cultural diversity and community needs through tailored experiences and branding in school commons. The design incorporates learner-centric features, offering flexibility in spaces, technology, and furniture, allowing for diverse programs and seamless adaptation. Niche learning areas within comprehensive schools foster a sense of belonging and engagement. Next-Gen Learning Design aligns with curriculum, pedagogy, instructional practices, and assessment methods, enhancing student engagement.

Iconic Gateway to the I-Drive Entertainment and Convention District

"The Drone" - A Pedestrian Overpass

HHCP&AVCON (a Joint Venture), is working on the new Pedestrian Overpass design across Sand Lake Road and International Drive in Orange County, Florida. This project aims to improve pedestrian safety and creates an aesthetic gateway to one of Orange County's most heavily traveled tourism corridors.

"The Drone" earned its name in the preferred final design as it resembles the form of a typical drone. The Drone removes the existing on-grade crosswalks and enhances vehicular capacity, all while creating a memorable experience for everyone crossing or driving under the bridge.

Elevated Living That Honors Our Veterans

Post Falls Veterans' Home

The Idaho Post Falls Veterans' Home design exemplifies an extraordinary focus on creating a premier facility that honors our veterans. Situated on a compact site, the building's layout ingeniously maximizes breathtaking mountain views while maintaining harmony with neighboring residential properties and ensuring seamless site circulation.

At the core of this 64-bed skilled nursing facility lies a centralized community center, offering an array of amenities to promote engagement and social interaction. Within its walls, you'll find a chapel, therapy room, dining room, sports club with large-screen televisions, and multiple common areas; all designed to foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie among the veterans. A welcoming bistro complements both intimate gatherings and larger group settings, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Balancing Growth and Patient Experience with Minimal Disruption

TriStar Horizon Medical Center ICU

The expansion of Horizon Medical Center in Dickson, Tennessee presented a unique challenge due to its aging ICU unit, that has been consistently over capacity for several decades and a campus with limited available space. The key was to achieve a careful balance between optimizing growth opportunities and minimizing disruptions to ongoing hospital operations.

By shaping the 14-bed ICU addition to form a new interior courtyard, the amount of demolition was minimized. This strategic design choice helped minimize the need for extensive demolition while ensuring that occupants would have continued access to natural light. The design of the facade drew inspiration from the original facility, incorporating elements such as oversized cornices and prominent vertical elements, emphasizing the existing mid-century design.

Improving Access to Exceptional Patient Care for Louisville's Expanding Communities

Baptist Health Breckenridge

Congratulations to Baptist Health Breckenridge on the grand opening of their newest medical office building! The facility emphasizes Baptist Health's unwavering commitment to enhancing patient care and fostering community growth in Louisville. This facility was designed to be a primary care hub with a wide array of health services such as: urgent care, laboratories, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician offices, and outpatient surgery.  

Envisioning Spaces That Enhance Next-Gen Learning Opportunities

John F. Kennedy Elementary School

John F. Kennedy Elementary School's latest upgrades incorporate ideas that emanate from the next generation visioning and community engagement sessions our team conducted with the staff and parents of Kennedy Elementary. Working closely with the school district and ASU SPARK experts, our team embarked on a transformative journey to reimagine the learning environment at JFK. The ASU SPARK teaching model guided our focus on fostering vibrant learning communities centered around a dynamic wonder zone within each classroom.

Collaborative Community Engagement Enhances Design

Ahir Hotel Concept

HHCP, an Orcutt | Winslow Company, is presently in the schematic design phase for a 255-room dual-brand hotel. This establishment will comprise of a mix of suites and standard hotel rooms and will incorporate public spaces on the ground floor. These public areas encompass a concierge desk, lobby, lounge area, café, and conference rooms and have been strategically positioned closer to the public sidewalk, fostering increased interaction between pedestrian traffic and hotel amenities.

Our design team, in collaboration with the owners, is actively engaging with local neighborhood committees. The goal is to comprehensively address any concerns or inquiries related to safety, privacy, and traffic.

Leveraging the Natural Environment by Creating Meaningful and Useful Connections to the Outdoors

TSG Center for Spiritual Development

The new TSG Foundation, Center for Spiritual Development merges science and spirituality in the natural world in ways that serve the site and the soul. 

A meandering desert driveway welcomes visitors and provides selective glimpses of the TSG Foundation building. Parking areas are organic in shape and well landscaped to screen them from street view, with a stabilized decomposed granite surface to minimize the heat island effect. A pedestrian bridge links the parking areas to the building by crossing a shallow desert wash and giving visitors a time for pause and reflection as they approach or leave the building. Within the building and the grounds, there are multiple areas to pause and meditate. There are what TSG refers to as “moments of joy”, which are surprises hidden in the architecture, such as hidden zodiac symbology and the TSG 7 principles. 

The Heart of the New Capital

Celia Commercial & Residential Village

The first phase of Celia, the largest mixed-use residential and commercial neighborhood in the New Administrative Capital has begun construction. With an expected population of six million, this project is located in the heart of the Green River, the largest park in the world. We are responsible for master planning, architecture, and landscape design from inception through tender with an ongoing role as Design Guardian through construction phases.
