Gordon H Chong & Partners was responsible for the design of the International Hotel and St. Mary's Catholic Center Complex, a 140,000 mixed-use development project located on a prominent site at the nexus of San Francisco's Chinatown, North Beach and Financial districts. The 140,000 sf. complex is comprised of 105 units of senior housing, a new K-8 school and community recreation facilities occupying space over a 3-level, below-grade 150-car parking structure. The program components are organized on the tight urban site to take advantage of shared access to light and air by use of a central courtyard, while still maintaining a sense of identity and clear entry. The Catholic center is covered from the public and active Kearny Street while the housing tower is entered from Jackson Street, which is more pedestrian in scale and has less automobile traffic.
I was directly involved in the visualization and design of the interiors of some of the main teaching stations (classrooms).
