Scott Mooney and David Posada, classmates at the University of Oregon

and intern architects working for different Portland architectural firms, decided to

enter the competition together. Another intern architect, Kathy Bush, was part of

the design team early on, but had to pull back due to other commitments. Working

at different firms meant that much of the work on the competition entry occurred

outside of normal office hours. Working nights and weekends, the two developed

a design proposal that aimed to exceed the competition brief and target LEED for

Homes Platinum certification, which they submitted in April.
