A secondary function in this building is to provide a small Ada county Sheriff sub-station where officers can perform paper work tasks and review casework with fellow officers and or officials. 2238 Broadway Avenue Boise, Idaho 208.338.9080 www.insightarchitects.com Ada County Drivers Services and Sheriff Sub-Station Building Design Narrative COHESIVE DESIGN The concept of the design is to complement the existing buildings on the site in design and scale. To do this we have selected materials and massing that present compatible design concepts. The materials proposed work well together and help reinforce the massing concept of the different portions of the building. These massing elements highlight the entry points and delineate the main entry point for the public to use. The additional staff entry points are less pronounced and don’t promote use by the public, but still provide a bit of weather protection. BUILDING SCALE The design of the building provides elements that mitigate the height of the certain portions of the building while allowing other building elements to extend the height of the building. This provides visual interest along with the comfort of knowing where to enter the building. The materials chosen have small details that provide human scale when up close. BUILDING FORM The design allows the individual elements to be their own “building blocks” and together form the entire building. ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS / MATERIALS The architectural features of this building are stucco, a tried and true finish material, vertical siding that contains the building blocks, and the awnings that add additional color and interest to the building. SIGNAGE AND LIGHTING The building signage is limited to a single location above the main entry of the building, no other building signage is proposed for the building. This is a single tenant occupancy thus additional signage is not needed. PARKING LOTS The majority of the parking is existing and very little change is proposed. A new parking element is being developed on the east end of the building that helps in two ways; 1. Provides additional parking on the site, 2. Provides access to another vehicle entrance/exit point on Progress Avenue. PEDESTRIAN WALKWAYS & FACILITIES A new concrete sidewalk is proposed from the building to the existing outdoor plaza located to the east of the building. This will allow staff and customers an opportunity to more easily access this site amenity.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff Intent 2.00 Promote building designs that use appropriate architectural and pedestrian scales to establish compatible physical and visual relationships with adjacent and surrounding developments and reinforce a cohesive built environment. Goal 2.10 Development should consider the scale of surrounding buildings, including relationships to existing residential areas, as well as an appropriate height, mass, and form scaled for the built environment. Applies to façades of development along public roads, public spaces, and adjacent to residential areas. 2.1A Buildings with rooflines 50-feet in length or greater must incor- porate roofline and parapet variations. Variations may include step-downs, step-backs, other modulation, or architectural features such as cornices, ledges, or columns, and must occur in total combination for at least 20% of the façade length. May be averaged over entire façade, but may not exceed 75-feet without a break. 2.1B For buildings with façades longer than 200-feet, reduce massing of buildings by grouping or incorporating smaller tenant spaces along the commercial façade, or by incorporating at least one significant modulation with depth at least 3% of the total façade length or 10-feet, and a width in combination at least 20% of the façade length. 2.1D Within mixed use areas and for all developments along arterial roadways, buildings over 1,000 sqft must provide a minimum 20-foot building elevation to include average parapet height, ridge of a pitched roof, or tower/turret type elements at least 20% in total of overall façade width.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff Goal 2.20 Physically configure building designs to reduce disproportioned architectural scale relative to adjacent uses. Applies to façades of development along public roads, public spaces, and residential areas. 2.2A For adjacent buildings with greater than 1-story height disparity (i.e. – two or more stories difference) and within 30-feet of each other, integrate and align parapet designs, material changes, fenestration alignment, material reveals, or other architectural elements and horizontal articulation, to relate varying building heights to one another. Aligned features do not have to be the same type (i.e. window pattern on one could align with parapet on another). 2.2B Use pedestrian scale and landscape design elements such as specialty lighting, awnings, trees or other site elements to visu - ally relate and transition multi-story buildings (or equivalent) to the ground plane. Goal 2.30 Incorporate pedestrian-scale architectural features to support an aesthetic character that contributes to the quality of the build- ing design and connectivity with the surrounding environment. Applies to façades in developments: visible from arterial or collector roadways, adjacent to residential developments facing roadways, facing an adjacent building's primary building entries, and adjacent to public spaces. 2.3A Consistently incorporate at least two (2) architectural features into the building design that are pedestrian scale, to include: fenestration patterns; architectural elements such as ledges, lighting, or canopies; material or pattern banding; or detailing (see Pedestrian Scale definition).

Examples include but are not limited to columns with trim or accent materials, change in finished material depths, building overhangs, and inset features and materials such as false windows or fenestration with architectural accents. 3.1B Qualifying modulation must be at least 6-inches in depth, be at least 8-inches in width or height (whichever is narrowest), and occur in total for 20% of overall façade elevation. For buildings with façades less than 150-feet, horizontal modulation must occur no less than every 30-feet. For buildings with façades greater than or equal to 150-feet, horizontal modulation must occur no less than every 50-feet. 3.1C Design parking structure façades as site integrated buildings, meeting applicable Manual standards for Architectural Elements and Material sections. Goal 3.20 Incorporate visual and physical distinctions in the building design that enhance building forms, articulate façades, identify entries, integrate pedestrian scale, and visually anchor the building to the ground or street level. Applies to building façades visible from a public street or public space, and to façades with public entries. 3.2A For at least 30% of applicable façades use any combination of concrete, masonry, stone, or unique variation of color, texture, or material, at least 10-inches in height, around the base of the building. May alternatively incorporate other architectural features such as ledges, façade reveals, ground level fenestra- tion, raised planters, or landscaping elements within 3-feet of finished grade. 3.2B Where building designs incorporate multiple stories, or multiple floor height equivalents, integrate at least one field or accent color, material, or architectural feature used on lower stories, on the upper stories. 3.2C Building designs with multiple stories must provide proportion- ally taller ground-level façades adjacent to public roadways and public spaces. Provide floor-to-ceiling heights, or floor-to-floor from 10 to 16 feet. 3.2D In mixed-use areas and for structures greater than four stories, design the uppermost story or façade wall plane to include material changes, horizontal articulation, and modulation meeting first story requirements, or include a patio, rooftop garden, penthouse, or strong architectural feature such as a tower element.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff Goal 3.30 Building design should establish visual connections that relate internal spaces at ground- or street-level with facades adjacent to public roadways, public spaces, and along primary building entries, and that add visual interest and complexity to the first floor building design. 3.3A Use horizontal and/or vertical divisions in wall planes, such as ledges, awnings, recesses, stringcourse, molding, joint lines, or other material types, to frame and accent 30% or more of total fenestration. 3.3D Average 30% fenestration for applicable first floor façade, unless specified elsewhere. May also meet fenestration alternative (see 3.3E). Big box and buildings in industrial districts may limit applicable façade area to 30-feet around public entries. 3.3E Fenestration Alternative: Incorporate doors and windows for at least 30% of applicable first floor façade, or suggest their inclu- sion using faux treatments that incorporate at least two of the following: material changes, reveals in conjunction with color or material change, qualifying modulation such as recessed areas, architectural trellis, awnings and canopies over access areas, detached structures such as pergola, or similar architectural features and details. Goal 3.40 Building roof types, forms, and elements should provide variation and interest to building profiles and contribute to the architectural identity of the buildings, without creating an imposing scale on adjacent uses. Applies to façades: in development along arterial roadways, visible from residential development, adjacent to public spaces, facing public entries of adjacent buildings. 3.4A For flat roofs, incorporate primary and secondary roof elements including but not limited to: multiple material types along para - pets, multiple parapet elevations with at least 1-foot change in elevation, or modulation of at least 2-feet in the parapet, such as along entryway overhangs. Qualifying elements must exist for at least 20% the length of applicable façades. May also incorporate secondary roof types, such as hip roofs along overhangs. 3.4B For sloped roofs, incorporate at least two of any one roof element, including but not limited to: valleys, ridges, or gables. Qualifying elements in total must exist for at least 20% of applicable façade roof area and be visible from the same façade elevation. May also incorporate other roof styles, such as parapet walls over entryway features.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff Intent 4.00 Promote integrated architectural elements and details as compo- nents of cohesive building designs that enhance the visual interest of building façades, support activity at and/or near ground level, and provide pedestrian scale. Goal 4.10 Use proportional architectural elements and detailing to articulate façades, and contribute to an aesthetic building character with a high level of pedestrian design. Applies to façades: in development along public roadways, visible from residential development, adjacent to public spaces, facing public entries of adjacent buildings. Goal 4.11 Design and articulate architectural elements using proportions, divisions, detailing, materials, textures, and colors and appropriately integrate these elements into the building design. Applies to façades: in development along public roadways, visible from residential development, adjacent to public spaces, facing public entries of adjacent buildings. 4.1A Provide at least three detailing elements that transition façade material changes or integrate pedestrian scale elements, such as doorways, windows, or material banding, at the base of the building. Examples include but are not limited to: cornice work around primary entries, decorative caps on brick or stone banding, architectural canopies over entries, or decorative lintels above the first floor windows. 4.1B Provide building overhangs or other projections such as canopies which articulate the building façade and provide temporary relief from inclement weather. At a minimum, an overhang or projection is required within 20-feet of all public entryways, must be at least 3-feet in depth from the point of entry, and be least 6-feet in length. Entryways with vestibules or other permanent enclosed transition space are exempt. Note: For a complete list of all Standards, along with photo examples, see the City of Meridian Architectural Standards Manual. †COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS | CONTINUED »Last Modified: 02/12/2016.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff 4.1C Provide details that emphasize focal elements such as public entries, building corners, or public spaces. Examples include but are not limited to: columns, quoin or rustication, canopies over entries, lintels, transom windows, or modulation of the roof plane. At least one focal element is required and must be accented with a unique combination of color, texture, materials, or modulation in the wall or roof plane. Goal 4.20 Building designs must not create blank wall segments when visible from a public street or public spaces. Consider the treatment at the base, middle, and top of the façade. 4.2A Use any combination of standards from Building Form, Architec - tural Elements, or Material sections to provide pattern, color, or material variation on all wall segments. Must not exceed 30-feet horizontally or vertically without building variation. Goal 4.30 Organize building service equipment, including, but not limited to, utility, service, and mechanical, away from building entries, roadways, public spaces, and, where appropriate, from adjacent buildings. 4.3A Use and integrate standards from the Architectural Standards Manual to screen and conceal service and mechanical equipment. Landscaping meeting the same intent may also be considered for utility meters and connections. 4.3B All ground level mechanical equipment must be screened to the height of the unit as viewed from the property line. 4.3C All rooftop mechanical equipment shall be screened as viewed from the farthest edge of the adjoining right of way.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff 5.1A For buildings with façades that face multiple public roadways and/or public spaces, use consistent material combinations, material quality, and architectural detailing. 5.1B For all façade elevations visible from public roads, public spaces, primary entrance(s) of an adjacent building, and facing residential districts, use at least two distinct field materials, colors, or material-color combinations on the building façade (see also Material definitions). 5.1D For façade elevations visible from public roadways and along primary building entryways, incorporate an accent material on the first story. 5.1E Distinguish field materials from accent materials through pat- tern, texture, or additional detail visible from edge of nearest roadway. Alternate masonry or material courses with relief from primary plane may count toward this. 5.1F Where materials transition or terminate, provide detailing to express the natural appearance of the material. For example, wrap stone or stone-like products around visible corners to convey the appearance of mass, and not as a thin veneer. 5.1G Non-durable materials, treatments, and finishes that deteriorate quickly with weather, ultra-violet light, and that are more suscep - tible to wear and tear are prohibited on permanent structures. 5.1H The use of vinyl and ordinary smooth face block, unfinished, colored, or painted, are prohibited as a field materials for building façades along public roadways, adjacent to public spaces, and when visible from residential neighborhoods. Smooth face block may be used as an accent material. 5.1I Untextured concrete panels and prefabricated steel panels are prohibited as field materials for building façades, except when used with a minimum of two other qualifying field materials and meeting all other standard fenestration and material requirements. Goal 5.20 Use colors that complement building materials and support innova- tive and good design practices. Applies to building façades visible from a public street, public spaces, and pedestrian environments. 5.2A Use of subtle, neutral, or natural tones must be integrated with at least one accent or field material. 5.2B Use of intensely saturated colors or fluorescence is prohibited as a primary material. May be used as an accent material.

Y N N/A ID #Description Comments Staff 5.2C Materials or colors with high reflectance, such as some metals or reflective glazing, must not redirect light towards roadways, public spaces, or adjacent uses in a way which constitutes a public nuisance or safety hazard. Goal 5.30 Integrate roll-up doors, will-call doors, drive-through doors, and loading docks into the building design, and locate them in a manner which does not create pedestrian, drive aisle, or roadway conflicts. Applies to façades along arterial and collector roadways, and façades facing public spaces. 5.3A For commercial and traditional neighborhood districts, roll-up and drive-through doors are allowed when integrated into the building design, but will-call doors with roll-ups and loading docks are prohibited. Consider material variation and transitions, modulation, and other architectural features and standards for the design.
