New York Times Covers the Completion of the Catalyst Building

By | Architecture, Construction, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

Here’s a Good Read: The New York Times covers the completion of the Catalyst Building in the University District. The building was built by KATERRA and designed by Michael Green Architecture. Bernardo Wills Architects provided landscape architecture for the entire project, and architecture and interior design services for the Eastern Washington University space in Catalyst. This building is “ the newest of 384 large ‘mass timber’ buildings in the United States.” The cross-laminated timber panels were manufactured at KATERRA’s 270,000 square-foot plant in Spokane Valley, designed by Bernardo Wills Architects and completed in 2019.

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.
