Rouquette Library at Saint Joseph Abbey
& Seminary College

"The original master plan for this campus was beautifully simple and clear. This new structure respectfully inserts itself with grace, especially at the loggia level. The interiors successfully pay homage to the mid-century campus without pure replication. The bay window carrels are a nice touch and very well done, creating interesting reading nooks on the interior and a striking detail on the exterior facade. We appreciated the many thoughtful references to the original campus, yet this still stands on its own as a striking piece of architecture."

St. Michael Special School
Restoration and Addition

"This is a high-level restoration project with a sensitive, well-executed, addition. We appreciated the new structure’s form and detailing, and how it acknowledges the context and original architecture without being repetitive nor cartoonish in its approach. The restraint of the addition’s interior is compelling, especially the use of indirect natural light. This was a tightrope of a project, gracefully balancing old and new."
