CSO Tank 26 Plaza Downtown Spokane, WA

By | Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

The CSO 26 Plaza design was one of the most interesting and challenging projects we have worked on. It is a reflection of a concerted team effort by the City of Spokane, Garco Construction, Coffman Engineers, Bernardo Wills Architects, and AECOM to make it all come together so nicely. The opportunity to create a new public gathering place with such an incredible view of the Spokane Falls and the Gorge has been very rewarding. Incorporating learning opportunities for how our community is working to keep the Spokane River clean and echoing the importance of the river culturally and historically to the Spokane Tribe of Indians was also an important part of the overall design.

#ThrowbackThursday Mid-Columbia Library, West Richland Branch

By | Architecture, Interior Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday: Completed in 2019, the remodel of the Mid-Columbia Libraries West Richland branch created a modern, well-organized, light-filled environment that appeals to all ages. The main focus included incorporating a little-used large meeting room into the main branch area and updating the spaces, finishes, and colors to promote Mid-Columbia Libraries’ current objectives and branding. A new story-time area was included, as well as an improved children’s collection and opportunities to display public art. Room for additional shelving allowed for an increased collection with thousands of new items. The bright, cheerful space was tailored for the library’s needs now and will serve readers well in the years to come.
