Each Zedz hotel has a unique personality. While the rooms provide consistent accommodations, the building configuration and lobby reflect the site parameters. Each Zedz lobby is unique which helps to promote the cult image desired by the client. Zedz Excel is nestled between an elevated light-rail and a British main-line rail system. The hotel is part of London’s Excel Event and Conference Center.
This small 535 square foot office in Heber City utilizes the restored original hardwood floors and large steel windows of the old city fire department building. The goal of the design was to create an open office while providing a distinct space to meet and to work.
Brigham Young University’s student athlete center is a 108,000 s.f. classroom, locker, and training facility designed to provide a balanced atmosphere for higher education and achievement in athletics. We selected steel and glass, altered their transparency and detailed their connections, as a metaphor for the balance between mind and body. Legacy Hall is a 3 1/2 story glass and stainless steel cube that will house displays. The soaring hall is designed to remind athletes of their potential as they transit between lectures and the field.
Utah has a rich history; early settlers traversed the American West to find a place to make their own. Many of these settlers were New Englanders and Midwesterners escaping religious intolerance and others were recent converts from Europe. Midway was settled by Swiss immigrants who were drawn to the area because of the lush green hills nestled at the base of snow capped mountains. The earliest dwellings were built with native stone or stacked timbers constructed to withstand the harsh winters. This house was designed to be as solid as the local houses that preceded it, respect the small scale of the rural homes surrounding it and pay tribute to Swiss pragmatism that influenced it.
The inspiration came from Chicago’s culinary and nightlife district, Rush Street. Like many good gathering spaces, the atmosphere and finishes are subdued and reserved; forming the backdrop for active humanity. The dark colors complement the original nature of the adapted bow-truss warehouse. Work accomplished at 4c Design Group.
Design work commenced at the climax of the European technology boom. Recognizing time and material inefficiencies inherent in traditional architectural methods, we developed an approach suited to the high-tech industry. What resulted was a corridor module that, when linked end-to-end, forms a mechanical, electrical, security, and egress spine. A factory assembled floor system is supported from the corridor spine to form large open technical spaces.
The Wasatch Fault lies at the base of Salt Lake City’s eastern range. The inactive seismic fault bisected the property making it unusable for most buildings. Our solution was to step back from the fault at the foundation level and cantilever the main floor over the fault zone. The result is a striking example of form following function. Work accomplished at 4c Design Group.
This 1890 farm house was hidden beneath pink aluminium siding, numerous additions, and over grown trees. The current owners purchased the condemned structure knowing the simple crafted building could be revived. We were employed to authentically restore the exterior charm and detailing to give new life to the interior.
This redesign of an existing hillside residence was commissioned by a architectural lighting designer. With virgin land harder to find, and as residents grow to like their existing location it is increasingly viable to redesign, restructure, and adapt an existing building. The 1950’s split-level modern tract home had good bones and it was determined to keep but modify the existing structure. Work accomplished at 4c Design Group.
