BIKE STOP

Pittsburgh, PA

This project questions the typical bike shop as an efficient and flexible commercial experience. With bike trails coming in from adjacent Frick Park, tennis courts to the north, and Braddock Avenue along the east edge, Bike Stop responds to the wide variety of activity that the site experiences daily while catering to a more adaptable commercial experience of today.

The offset circle plan breaks down harsh barriers between main programmatic spaces commonly found in typical bike shops. The birch wood fin plays a multifunctional role in the design, acting as a display element and an agent for revealing and concealing space.
The studio considered standard and progressive construction practices, materials, and assemblies to connect the design concepts to a built and constructable form.

This project was selected to be featured in HAAARCH!!! in 2019, the University of Pittsburgh’s annual showcase of architecture projects and research.
