Comments Off on Old Gun Supply Store in Arizona Transformed Into Community-Friendly Creative Center of Scottsdale

Michelle Biely bought a property in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona that operated as a gun supply store for over 50 years. She wanted to turn it into a more friendly, community-oriented place and hired Contour Design Studio , led by principal Christina Noble, to turn it into a creative co-working complex complete with a coffee shop and courtyard gathering space. The Creative Center of Scottsdale is an adaptive reuse project of three existing buildings: a 4,000 square foot gun supply store transformed into a creative co-working space, a 2,000 square foot auto shop that is now an empty shell waiting for a tenant, and a 1,800 square foot knit shop that has been renovated as a coffee house. This is the first commercial building in the city to have been approved with the International Green Building Code .

Comments Off on Brilliant SunBeamer Skylight Reflects Daylight Exactly Where You Want It

The new SunBeamer skylight is a clever and surprisingly simple daylighting solution that directs sunlight exactly where you need it most. Developed by SunCentral, the sun-tracking circular skylight uses rotating mirrors to shoot beams of light deep within a building. We caught up with Peter Busby , LEED Fellow and head of Perkins + Will’s San Francisco office , at Greenbuild 2013  to talk about how the firm’s new building will use the SunBeamer.
