Gresham turned a commercial building fire disaster to an advantage, with a rebuilding scheme that added 60% more building volume to the same site at one-third less cost than duplicating the original.

Tortoise House for Virginia Zoological Park

This 312 sq ft home to five Aldabra tortoises, which are thought to have a lifespan of over 100 years! The tortoises will be able to enjoy the heated radiant floor, the shallow pools on the interior of the structure, skylights, and a large viewing window to watch humans as they walk by.
