The upper level was built of prefabricated storage trusses with a 2x12 bottom chord acting as floor framing. In this way, the sheathed upper floor could seismically stabilize the historic log structure below.

Grand Teton National Park Association

HandsOn Designed  these lower level offices back in 2004. Our goal was to distribute the natural light from just a few windows throughout the interior, resulting in a series of private windowed offices  (sandblasted for privacy) around some open office cubicles. Ten years later the organization was looking more more private spaces. We responded by installing sliding glass doors on custom steel supports between raised cubicle walls that stop short of the ceiling so fire sprinklers weren't affected. We also added custom beech cabinetry along corridors walls, and divided some offices in half with decorative partitions.

Modular Eco-Hotel 
Schematic Design

Proposed 5 unit  condo-hotel development on Flat Creek in the Town of Jackson. Steel moment frames fastened to concrete footings create ground floor parking with side by side prefabricated modules  stacked above. Atop that volume is a covered roof deck with sauna and outdoor fireplace. Photovoltaic cells, rainwater collection cisterns, geothermal heating, intgral bike racks and recycling bins support Jacksons 

Public Restroom Prototypes

Office Building Addition
Town of Jackson

Exploration of development options related to a corner town lot with rear alley access. Designed to accommodate additional mixed use development on adjacent lots as they became available. Existing single story home would be relocated and additional buiding segments could be constructed as additive geometries without compromising the new construction. Parking largely accommodated on two streetfronts in Special Parking District.

 

Jackson Land and Cattle-
