Trinity Design/Build offices, by permission

Just heard via the twittersphere that I won a Golden Leaf Award from the City of Durham for my former employers’ (Trinity Design/Build) office on Gregson Street.  It is one of the only commercial buildings I’ve ever designed, and through a lot of work between design, construction, and technology, it managed to make LEED Platinum, receive preservation tax credits, and now this!  Very cool to hear.

My workspace there was my favorite desk ever, crazy orange wall and all.

The official flyer from the Golden Leaf Awards - click for a more readable image.

Judge’s comments read: “Recognizing the simple visible efforts on a small scale goes a long way to demonstrating how any project can be done in a sustainable way.  What a wonderful new life for a ‘forgotten’ building.”
