  • The feasibility study dictated that due to popula-tion growth and income of possible tenants that housing would be the most viable choice.

    The feasibility study dictated that housing is more economical than office space and retail due to the risk of vacancy rates.Description: To create the second phase of

    development for Oak Hill, an apartment complex located in Pittsburghs Oakland district near two prominent Universities. Stage one of the project was to create a market analysis for the most feasible type of zoning.

    The feasibility study dictated that residential housing is the most viable choice based on loca-tion and the likely hood of filling the property with tenants.

    Residential, retail, office or mixed use were all options. Residential was determined to be the most feasible. The second step was to create the design and construction draw-ings. The final step was completing a com-prehensive estimate for the construction within the area of work.

  • RD Residential Design

    The lot for this design is located on Thomas Boulevard in Point Breeze district of Pittsburgh. The sites design mimics the refuge that is Thomas Boulevard. The street has a tree lined median and bordering allee with pedestrian circula-tion. The design achieves this concept by focusing on pri-vacy nodes near the center of the site, similar to the streets median. The center privacy nodes are the main element of the design. A thick wall of shrubs and trees line the front entrance that sits back several feet into the yard. The setback was created to pull the public street into the designed space. The windows on the sides of the homes are covered by a va-riety of shrub formations to deflect views from the adjacent apartment, buildings, and to deter trespassing.

    The focal point is located at the center of the lots similar to the vegetated median on Thomas Boulevard. The center spaces of both residences are connected, but not shared, and are the most private areas on the site. The enclosure of the residence to the east is a 6 wall that is designed for tenants who desire optimal privacy . The enclosure of the residence to the west consists of a dense row of flower-ing trees and a lower level of plantings that provide slight views out to the street.

  • Planting DesignPD

    The Rachel Carson Garden was designed to provide users with a collection of themed beds to awaken the sense of wonder and is located on Chatham Univer-sitys campus. Rachel Carson is one of Chathams most prestigious alumna and early proponent for sustain-ability. The theme of this garden is edible plants, known as the edible garden. The goal of this planting design is attract insects, birds and other wildlife by providing a habitat with food and shelter. Many of the plants are native to the Pittsburgh region to reinforce Rachel Carsons passion for local ecology.

    The planting beds aesthetic design focuses on framing views and creating interest by using a variety of plant sizes. Access is provided to view the vegetation with a recycled flagstone path. Most of the plants provide fruit and nuts but several other plant species were used for balance within the design. The Blue Wood Aster (Aster cordifolius ) and the Purple Cone Flower (Echinacea pur-purea) are used in strategic locations because of their scent and aesthetic appeal as flowers. An evergreen plant, Wild Ginger (Asarum canadensis) is used near the entrance as groundcover for fall and winter months.

  • Rain GardenRG

    The redesign of this site incorporates an organic shaped rain gar-den to aid in stormwater runoff. The stone gutters protrude into the parking lot to allow runoff to infiltrate into the garden. The garden provides a natural setting within a context of hardscape for users to relax and reconnect with the natural environment. The rain garden acts as an education tool to explain how stormwater is managed.

    Existing Conditions

    The client requested options for his patio. Our team de-signed an organic and linear themed patio (shown). A din-ing area was requested and pavers were used to create the separation of space.

    Other required elements included a kitchenette island with a sink, grill, and space for a miniature refrigerator under the bar styled granite coun-ter. A mulch bed was added between the path from the driveway to the patio to create slight separation and interest when arriving.
