The John and Frances Angelos Law Center
When a modest-sized building concept desires to have a monumental or unique facade, there is not often a sufficient budget for developing the necessary technology to design and install the facade. NEC has invested in a solution which helps builders realize the architect’s vision.

Loblolly House
Positioned between a dense grove of loblolly pines and a lush foreground of saltmeadow cordgrass and the bay, the house seeks to deeply fuse the natural elements of this barrier island to architectural form. The timber foundations are at once pragmatic because they minimize the disruption to the ground, and poetic because the dwelling is literally founded on the tree.
