Ivy Office Building

District: Charlottesville, VA

Ivy Proper is a single-story 6,500
professional services office center
located in downtown Ivy. Taking
cues from our adjacent context,
this project features three striking
gable forms that rotate throughout
the site to address each façade.


With relegated parking in the rear
per County ARB requirements, the
building had to respond with front
entrances along both main facades, while breaking down the mass into a project of “human scale”. Consistent unifying materials and a legible building form create a cohesive whole, which is strengthened through this strong gable form. Connectors clad in a dark wood pay homage to this contemporary take on the “rural vernacular” of Albemarle County.
