Pike & Rose

Pike & Rose is a mixed-use neighborhood North Bethesda, Maryland. It will occupy over 32 acres when complete, with buildings ranging up to 20 stories. It’s approximately $1.5 billion in new construction and replaces an old strip shopping center with huge parking lots, a great exercise in East coast density and reuse.

Map The Square

Pioneer Square is home to stark contrasts. Art galleries, boutique restaurants, high-end housing and blossoming tech startups within historic buildings are contrasted by homelessness, development limitations, a hub of mental health facilities and lack of urban-enhancing amenities. Many empty or under-utilized properties await future change, and the Map the Square team (the Young Architects Forum of Seattle AIA) sought to influence this design change by inviting the public voice.

Woodlawn Stone Barn

This project’s challenge was to animate a historic architectural treasure—an 1832 Quaker stone barn in Sandy Spring, Maryland—with the stories of those who once inhabited the farm and its community. Howard+Revis were asked to help a 21st-century audience make a personal connection to the daily challenges, failures and triumphs of a bygone era, and re-imagine a time when this heavily populated region was quiet farm country.

SGMC Sunken Wall of Prayer

The Sarang Community Church was established in 1978 with 800 members. The church quickly outgrew its facility in Gangnam and, as the area continued to develop rapidly, the church was left with few options for expansion to meet the spatial needs of the growing congregation. When an opportunity arose to purchase a large plot of land just a little over a mile west from the former site, the church raised the necessary funds to secure the land and began raising more funds for the construction of the new facility through the generous gifts of its members.
