The ISTB3 (Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building III) is an example of melding together various and diverse departments as one collective unit. Program components include: Applied Biological Sciences and AZ Bio Institute, Applied Cognitive Sciences Center, and the Healthy Lifestyles Center.
Jones Studio designed interior courtyards and exterior gardens to provide an escape from the harsh summer sun and visual relief from the intense research inside the building, all the while, the building is flooded with natural daylight. Shared break room and other common building functions provide opportunities for informal gatherings amongst the different researchers in the building. The offices are purposely placed across the building from the lab areas to further promote impromptu chats. This project received the USGBC LEED Gold certification.

The program was simple a private client, an apartment in the center of Paris, with a large terrace. The architects were challenged with connecting the apartment with the terrace. The result is a large volume that opens directly on the terrace, and it is the main space of floor as well as the entry room. The bedrooms are rearranged on the first level to accomodate the living space and terrace.

Jones Studio was selected in 2004 to design a new space for the special Desiderata Alternative Program. This 125 student school is dedicated to helping teens with emotional disorders attain a high school education as well as learn basic life skills. Moving the school from a 1920’s historic building, “Desi” would be relocated into an industrial building. The 30,000 sqf program entailed a complete build-out after gutting the entire interior. A wide variety of program elements from administrative offices, classrooms, food preparation, therapy areas, and fitness rooms are arranged for optimal function within the existing shell.
The architects chose to add exterior planted courtyards within the existing building’s walls in order to create outdoor classrooms and bring in natural light. Eight-foot square skylights take advantage of the industrial building’s high, wood roof structure to distribute natural light to multiple classroom clerestories. Colored glazing and a variety of paint colors de-institutionalize the building and create a rich, varied learning environment for the children.
