Last night, the AIA Silicon Valley held their Design Awards Gala in the new David and Joan Traitel Building at Stanford University. CAW Architects was the Executive Architect for the newly-completed building, in collaboration with Design Architect William Rawn Associates of Boston. We are delighted to announce that during last night’s gala, CAW won two of the eleven awards given, taking home Merit Awards for the Traitel Building in the Interiors category, and for the The O’Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm in the Architecture category. The jury for the design awards comprised William Leddy FAIA, Henry Siegel FAIA, Steve Wiesenthal FAIA, Renee Chow AIA, and Marvin Malecha FAIA.

In addition, we are very proud to announce that CAW Founding Principal Christopher Wasney AIA was presented with the Chapter’s highest honor, the Birge Clark Award. The intent of this Special Award is to recognize “distinguished work over time and outstanding achievement in architectural design as expressed in a body of work…consistently designed, over the career of an individual architect.”

Last week, we were proud to join Stanford University as it celebrated the opening of the Huffington Barn and the Welch Family Kitchen. The barn and kitchen complete the The O’Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm, a living laboratory where students, faculty, and the surrounding community can test new ideas about the social and environmental aspects of farming and urban agriculture.

Our design centrally organized farm structures amongst 6 acres of field crops and orchards, frame open gathering space, and create a promenade through the fields that lead to it. Central to the design is the Huffington Barn, a large and iconic structure that combines the desired programs of barn, classrooms, office space, and open demonstration pavilion. Two greenhouses and a lath house act as accessory structures to the barn, embodying a purely functional design. This new working farm will supply Stanford dining halls with over 15,000 pounds of produce each year, and cultivate a new generation of experts versed in both the principles and practices of sustainable farming.

For more information about the farm’s workshops, wellness classes, tours, or to volunteer, please visit their website at earth.stanford.edu/farm/engage

We are proud to announce that the Sapp Center for Science Teaching & Learning at Stanford University was awarded a Design Award by the California Preservation Foundation during a gala held at the Mark Hopkins Hotel. The rehabilitation of this building, formerly known as Old Chem, returns this prominent sandstone structure to student use after sitting abandoned for nearly three decades. The building now displays its historic character while fulfilling the needs of modern science curriculum.

Barn Raising, the CAW way! The steel frame of the 5,323-square-foot Huffington Barn, our latest addition to the Stanford Educational Farm Project, went up in a week, with the remainder of construction set to take less than five months. When complete, the barn will provide conditioned lecture and office spaces, restrooms, covered outdoor workshops/collaboration spaces, and teaching pavilion.
