A Return to the Pedestrian
The new heart of the campus is a collection of five separate retail buildings, organized around a central plaza and green space. The scale of these buildings pays homage to the surrounding bungalows in the historic residential neighborhood. Each building’s design features a different material, creating a layered and textured aesthetic. They are planned to have a mix of alfresco dining, restaurants, and a coffee shop.

A major renovation and expansion brought an office tower in place of one of the original buildings. The re-development in the 80s also erased the original planning concepts and architecture that made The Quadrangle a one-of-a-kind project. As a result of Uptown's growth over the last couple of decades, the Quad is now surrounded by a healthy mix of large and medium-scale office and apartments co-existing with some of the neighborhood’s original houses.
The Original Quadrangle
The buildings have individual identities through the use of materials and forms while the pitched metal roofs create a connected and cohesive design language.
In order to create uninterrupted moments of surprise and delight, The Quad reinforces the 360-degree nature of the buildings by introducing a new standard of pushing back house activities below grade in the garage.
While buildings are considered from a four-sided nature, special consideration was given to the fifth side, the roof, that is seen not only from the new 12-story office but also the surrounding neighborhood. The roofs have a consistent yet varying nature through the use of form and material.
