Five Academy of Art University Architecture students built more than confidence when they won a citation from the American Institute of Architects, East Bay (AIAEB). Students Justin Ackerman, Mary Telling, Justin Hanan, Shaum Mehra and Shanay Moghbel put their design skills and ingenuity to work creating a free-standing office space for a client.

The completed project, a two-level structure built of reclaimed redwood, took the clients’ lives into account. With a customized desk, storage and shelving system, it not only met the need for office space, it went beyond, creating a secondary space that offered a lounge area for the family.

“The entire project was an exercise in sustainability, from the use of recycled denim insulation to reclaimed redwood siding and mahogany doors,” said Ackerman. Students sourced materials themselves, finding them on Craigslist and other sites.
