CODE Center of Developing Entrepreneurs  |  Charlottesville, Virginia | under construction | completion expected Spring 2021

Designed in collaboration with our associate architects, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple from New Orleans, CODE is a unique commercial development that will offer a dynamic and healthy work environment emphasizing principles of wellness and sustainability within the workplace while supporting a diverse mix of tenants and businesses.  As a LEED Gold certified building, the building has been thoughtfully engineered to employ systems and technologies that will increase the fresh air, provide finely tuned environmental controls, and harvest rainwater that will be reused for green roof irrigation – all with the intent of meeting the AIA’s 2030 challenge for efficiency and thermal performance and being a good steward of for the environment. As an architectural and urban design response to a complexly shaped and sloping site in a historic district, the building’s massing starts out low and gently steps upwards, as it transitions to the larger context of surrounding buildings on Water Street revealing a series of occupiable landscaped roof terraces.
