The two-story office building consists of two identical sections, offset to break up the long front facade and joined together by a central elevator core. Clad in Western Red Cedar siding, with abundant windows, the design settles comfortably into its small site in the heavily wooded town. Terraces running along the building’s front facade provide private outdoor space for the second-story offices.

The project sits within the creek’s floodplain, and is subject to frequent flooding, so foundation design and integrity were important. The building’s solid slab foundation is designed to float with the movement of water, and elevated 30 inches from ground level to protect against water intrusion.

The parking lot is covered in permeable paving to absorb overflow. Careful planning enabled an efficient construction process on the tight site, which left little room to spare for crews and equipment.
