The design for Panther Lake Elementary School focuses on bringing together the school’s learning and common areas in order to enrich the students’ educational experiences. Long rows filled with formal learning spaces run parallel to each other, while a corridor containing the school’s major common areas runs through the rows at a diagonal, bisecting and connecting the separate learning areas. As a result, the various learning centers remain open to one another even though they appear to be separated by their different colors and structural elements.

The Basler Residence, titled Twist by the architects, sits on a corner lot with two faces to the street. Its exterior facades blend well into the surrounding area, but the house is different from its neighbors. The client sought out Randy Brown Architects of Omaha, Nebraska to design a modern family home. The resulting house is a hybrid with attention to context, and a sleek, modern interior.
