Project 2 - KATI Dental Clinic
While at YA Architecture; a collaboration as Architect of Record with Designer Andrew Lucia for an ultra-energy-efficient office / clinic where the dental patient rooms are focused on a series of large picture windows looking towards forested outdoor views of the hills near Hibbing, MN.
Daylight is all indirect through a large roof skylight structure that minimizes the summer sun and maximizes the winter sunlight.

While at YA Architecture; a small office fitted with minimal fixtures utilizing off-the-shelf cabinets arranged in unusual ways. A cool toned color palette keeps the space fresh and focused on the western sky view.
Project 4 - Office Retrofit
