The Brief

The idea for this competition is very simple, cove.tool is on a mission to create the fastest and most robust and holistic building performance platform on the market. Now we want to see what our users can do without the limitation of deadlines, constructability, and code compliance. 

Winning Entry

Congratulations Brain Ferrell! The project is a net-zero ready elementary school located in the North Davidson neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina. The site is bordered by two historic mill buildings that illustrate the character of the area as a former textile mill neighborhood and new buildings that reflect its current use as an arts district in Charlotte. The design proposes adaptive reuse of the mill building and an addition to the building, housing flexible learning and administrative spaces, communal areas, and learning landscapes.
