This expansion project for the Little Miami Brewing Company of Milford, Ohio provided a more robust outdoor experience by adding 1,160 square feet of taproom space, along with a 1,600-square-foot rooftop deck. The rooftop had a larger footprint than the enclosed addition, and provides cover for tables and chairs from inclement weather and hot sunny days. The added taproom area provides an open air feel and features a new brick-paver patio and natural gas fire pit overlooking the breathtaking Little Miami River below. To match the existing taproom, the interior walls were veneered with a thin brick version of the full depth brick veneer used on the exterior shell. Two sets of steel stairs ascend up the rooftop deck. The roof assembly consists of a TPO membrane, precast concrete pavers, and adjustable pedestals, to offset the roof slope. The custom beer draft system was expanded to serve all 16 beers that are available from the first floor taproom. For additional weather protection, three custom fabric sunshades float overhead, providing protection to patrons as they enjoy a "cold one."

While this 46,000-square-foot multi-service medical facility is a simple rectangular box in its overall form, the architectural aesthetic relies on the metal skin to create scale, texture, and visual interest. The various metal panel profiles and depths visually shape the exterior skin as a textured graphic expression. It responds to the direction of sunlight, creating movement through shade and shadow, resulting in dynamic and ever-changing building façades. The four-color scheme creates visual interest, and further defines the composition of the elements that create the architectural order of the building façades. The exposed fastener metal panels were selected for their aesthetic design appeal, durability, low maintenance, and economical value.
