Perpetually Pioneering, Modern Architecture Projects By CO Architects Cal Poly Pomona Student

The Student Services Building symbolizes the aspirations and mission of the university and serves as a memorable place of arrival for prospective students, returning students, alumni and visitors. It houses the office of the president, division of university advancement, and divisions of academic, student and administrative affairs. The undulating roof design is inspired by the surrounding hills and mountains, branding the building as a campus landmark. The roof also serves a primary and essential role in passive solar design. Its perforated overhangs shade the exterior glass, reduce thermal loads and glare, and maximize good quality daylight. Other passive and mechanical sustainable strategies serve to optimize visual and thermal comfort, operational flexibility and aesthetic sensitivity. It is LEED Platinum certified.

Phoenix Biomedical Campus

Perpetually Pioneering, Modern Architecture Projects By CO Architects Phoenix Biomedical Campus

The Health Sciences Education Building, an inter-professional academic medical and health sciences training facility, serves multiple programs of two universities in a signature building on a new biomedical campus in downtown Phoenix. The iconic design meets the institutions’ aspirations for identity, sustainability, and powerful new learning environments. The program merges traditional and emergent learning spaces, from advanced classrooms and learning studios to clinical skills and simulation laboratories. The design responds to its urban locale and desert environment. A unique copper façade protects the building from direct solar exposure and provides a ventilated air cavity that helps cool it. Dual building wings create a tall, narrow “canyon” space topped by a PTFE scrim shade that regulates air and light.

The first Double LEED Platinum certified hospital in the world, the hospital incorporates reduced energy demand systems (solar, thermal insulation and LED light fixtures), active chilled beams in patient rooms, rainwater utilization, waste recycling, systems utilization with energy recovery options, prefabrication of elements to minimize waste, and consideration of local materials for both landscape and construction.

Perpetually Pioneering, Modern Architecture Projects By CO Architects Kansas City University Center for Medical Education Innovation

Kendall Square Building B Laboratory provides over 200,000 square feet of private industry biotechnology research laboratory and office space on six levels, 8,000 square feet of retail space on the first level, and a six-level underground parking facility. Part of a mixed-use, life sciences development, it is one of three buildings forming the facades of a new public square created in this recently developed part of Cambridge adjacent to MIT. The design extends the vibrant Cambridge street life into the building via a gently sloped monumental stairway that rises within its six-story atrium.

Perpetually Pioneering, Modern Architecture Projects By CO Architects LAUSD Berendo Middle School New Gymnasium Campus Modernization

CO Architects served as the architect for the design and construction of a new gymnasium building for Berendo Middle School located in the central city area of Los Angeles. The school is vitally connected to the surrounding community, and the new gymnasium celebrates and enhances the connection. The two-story gymnasium sits on a hilly site with windows and a long balcony facing the Wilshire skyline to the north. A large plaza to the south serves as a pre-function space and will be available for community uses. Service spaces and lockers are located on the gym’s lower level with direct field access, and the upper level accommodates a large gymnasium and fitness classroom, as well as concessions and service support areas. The project also converted existing clerical space in the administration building into a much-needed community wellness clinic.

Indio Juvenile and Family Courthouse

Perpetually Pioneering, Modern Architecture Projects By CO Architects Indio Juvenile and Family Courthouse

The new courthouse will serve families and children in Riverside County with five courtrooms, a self-help center for family law matters, judges’ chambers, and administrative space. The design provides for natural light-filled courtrooms, waiting rooms and public spaces, all within a secure environment. Challenged by the desert climate conditions, the design team carefully evaluated mechanical, electrical and building enclosure systems, and selected new and innovative glass products to help reduce solar heat gain. To achieve new economies and efficiencies within the state courts construction program, the Judicial Council designated this courthouse as a test case for cost reductions to the project budget. CO Architects has designed a striking and well-functioning building that meets all of its programmatic requirements, and it is referenced as a demonstration model for others to follow.
