Howe Creek

Building two forty thousand square foot office buildings near the headwaters of a tidal creek proved to be an environmental as well as an architectural challenge. Howe creek and surrounding wetlands run through the middle of this site separating the two buildings, connected by a bridge spanning the creek. Water runoff from the buildings and parking lot is piped into an underground collection system that stores the water, filtering it and gradually discharging it into the water table.
