Elegant project, excellent example of sophisticated building systems and exemplar presentation. A very successful interplay between contemporary sustainable technologies and meticulous restoration efforts. Preservation of the projects inherent cultural value was very significant part of its success and the restoration and renovation work was done very well. This project is both state-of-the art and a thoughtful historic renovation.

A strikingly simple, very well executed, and exceptionally well conceived building. The project is an elegant building that successfully weaves its sustainable technologies into its place in the landscape. The presentation demonstrated both project performance and a process that lead to this well-thought-out and well-designed building. Project is very “at home on its site,” very fitting to its nature education mission, with the design benefiting from a meaningful understanding of it site.

A very successful project, green to the core. Project’s vernacular aesthetic works well with the residential community scale buildings. Building systems and design very thoughtful executed. The project is very appropriate to its site and context. The project budget was used very strategically and efficiently. The buildings are an excellent model for other similar projects.

This project makes significant improvement to a ubiquitous building typology. Potential impact of the project is greater then a single building and hopefully will become a ‘transformative’ model for future development. Good example of what can be done by a for-profit owner. Project conveys a meaningful cultural message.

A beautiful building with a clear and simple parti. The Subtle division of spaces reinforces the sustainability goals and also successfully creates interesting dynamic spaces. Presentation balanced design and technical information quite well. This project is a great example of how to approach an integrated design process, and can quite easily be seen as a model for similar development.
