JLID - ADAPTIVE SPACE REHAB
OAKLAND CITY HALL - CIVIC INCUBATOR
Industrial and rural sites are intriguing to blinkLAB because our interest is typological transformation through an examination of complex performance requirements. As a result, our process seeks to find the confluence of ecology, economy, understanding the desires of people and the management of resources into finely-tuned eco-engines. At the core is always a new vision for nature.
LAW LIBRARY INCUBATOR - concept
THERE IS MORE TO SPACE THAN SQUARE FEET
OUR OFFICE WALL - prototype
We take environmental concerns seriously.
DOWNTOWN OAKLAND - design
Historic buildings provide a foundation for the regeneration of many of our towns and cities. Regenerating these buildings can reinforce a sense of community, make an important contribution to the local economy and act as a catalyst for improvements to the wider area. New uses are allowed and sensitive adaptations facilitated, when the original use of a historic building is no longer relevant or viable.
The design pursuit is locating the INTERSECTION of:
Program, Strategy and fun.
Research and Creativity
Technological and Adaptive Ecologies
Lightness, Precision and Movement
Most of our projects focus on re-invention, integration of social values and ideas that move forward boldly towards development of sustainable environments. Design is about making CONNECTIONS. In this pursuit, integral to the design approach is an avid belief in spatial and material explorations.
