Plans for tiny new public parks are bubbling up across Richmond. Parklets, as they’re called, replace parking spaces or in this case, bus stops with strips of pedestrian space that offer benches and scraps of grass where there once was asphalt.
3north is excited to be part of this new concept for Richmond.
Great idea for #RVA with assistance from @3north.

In the July 16 issue of Style Weekly architecture critic, Ed Slipek, describes how the “new Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center has transformed the neighborhood.” The state of the art facility and practice grounds, designed by 3north Principal Jay Hugo, opened to great fanfare on July 8 and the Redskins arrive for practice on July 25.
The photos above were taken by Harold Lanna of HC Yu and Associates the mechanical engineer on the project.
Epiphany Studio, formerly Flashpoint Brands, has relocated its offices to the Corrugated Box Building and is now bringing its marketing expertise to building product manufacturers.
Epiphany shares its new home in the Corrugated Box Building with other award- winning design services. Several of Epiphany’s new neighbors (some also collaborators) include 3north, Tumblr, Mobelux, CO+LAB and Scalability Project.
For Epiphany, the open-floor plan is the ideal setting of shared resources and shared ideas. Epiphany sees its new office in Corrugated Box as a natural market research information source. One that can be mined, refined, sorted and shared with its clients.
More collaboration at CBox.
The 3north staff toured the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in advance of the grand opening on July 8. The Redskins arrive at the center, designed by 3north Principal Jay Hugo, on July 24 for training camp.

In advance of this evening’s Green Spaces Competition in Richmond (details here), check out this video created by 3north architect, Damon Pearson and interior designer, Emily Smith. The video was produced by Double Take, and 3north landscape architect Andrea Almond helped coordinate the video with Dominion Resources.
Emily describes the video:
“This was part of an investigation into who uses Kanawha Plaza… when they use it… and how they use it. We were able to observe sun patterns, circulation, and program from the 20th floor of the Dominion Resources office building. All of this to provide additional understanding and context.”
This evening at Storefront for Community Design as part of First Friday’s Artwalk. Co-sponsored by 3north and Inaray.
