This project is a mixed-use building, designed in Studio III, that features apartments, a restaurant and a fitness/library/community center.  These three sections are all divided up separately, connected with a central courtyard and an underground parking garage.  The design began with an analysis of angled views that were possible within the site.  The way every window is positioned matters in the sense that it is a mixed-use building.

The drawing shows the exterior ramp and garden space with the restaurant — open to residents and the public — beyond.  The overall style is cutting edge and sleek to introduce new design concepts in Columbia, Missouri.
