In anticipation of this weekend’s #Pride2021 celebrations, we’re sharing a festive #flashbackfriday view from our San Francisco office at 660 Market. As we look back, we celebrate hard-earned progress and revel in shared community. We also look forward and renew our commitment to promote justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) in our firm culture, project work and partnerships. Join us.

Here's a sneak peek of the new @SeattleU Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation. We're thrilled to see it fill with life in preparation for fall classes! The project places STEM education at the threshold between the city and the university, and creates new opportunities for collaboration between biology, chemistry and computer science departments within an inviting, student-centered hub for gathering, hands-on exploration and discovery.

We’re excited to share the beautiful mural installation that illuminates the north façade of Casa Adelante at 2060 Folsom, new all-electric affordable housing in the Mission District. The four-wall piece is muralistx Jessica Sabogal's dedication to Yolanda M. López, an American painter, printmaker, educator and film producer living in San Francisco who is known for works focusing on the experiences of Mexican-American women, often challenging the ethnic stereotypes associated with them. Check out @jessicasabogal to learn more about the powerful history and cultural references incorporated within this installation.

The structure of @thebushschool Upper School building features sustainably harvested mass timber components to drive down embodied energy and global warming potential of the project. This wood frame design also contributes to the project’s #PassiveHouse (PHIUS) certification goals, and creates dynamic new campus spaces for learning and gathering. These innovative large format 2” thick mass plywood panels flew in rapidly, fit like a glove and helped save weeks off of the project schedule compared to traditional car decking installation.

The design of Miraval invites guests to bring their lives into balance by living mindfully and engaging with the natural world. Rammed earth walls, deep overhangs and water conservation strategies reflect a whole-building approach to sustainability and honor the natural landscape. Sweeping views to the south and east connect the Catalina Mountains to Miraval’s campus and establish its character as a place for contemplation and healing.
