BURGAS TOWERS A dip in the Black Sea. Conceptual design for a large mixed use development in the sea town of Burgas.

3|4


A sandwich-like layered structure was the natural solution for dividing the different types of functionality in vertical direction - a hospital, a hotel and three separate residential units with office capacity on the lower levels are present. It was mandatory for the client to achieve a variety of apartments types, which allowed to take chunks off the building’s flesh, thus creating a line that was suitable for the large scale of the building. There were four different design solutions generated through the course of one year. What allowed the detailed analysis to match the pace of the project was the use of powerful BIM software, in this case Revit, which not only provided sufficient level of detail in different scales but also lead to much better technical communication between structural engineers and architect.

CONCEPT STRUCTURE AXONOMETRY

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” Frank Lloyd Wright

1. traffic dictates main orientation of the building. The ‘power’ lines of the incoming traffic hit the west facade while streamline the south.

2. cracks in the main mass start to form - the facade taking the direct pressure chips off larger chunk of flesh.

3. residual currents keep denting the surface of both facades, sometimes chipping off small pieces or alternatively adding deposits.

A total of three completely different design options were evolved during the preliminary design phase in order to meet the client expectations. In one case the structure of the building is conceptualized as a solid descending wall marked by eroded gaps in the rectangular facade - this gives a fairly flexible way of treating the layout organization. Another design approach splits the site in two main zones and erects a high tower in each one. The final design solution relies on optimization of the benefits of the plot - a terracing of the building on the south elevation guarantees that the favorable direction is matched with the splendid view from above - toward both the city center and the Black Sea. Finally, a concept of a low-rise commercial building was given in order to meet a different investor intention.

Connective Architecture: Designing Human Wellbeing sPins is commissioned by Social (Re)Connection: Choreographing architectural gestures in urban spaces, a multidisciplinary project awarded UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing: Behavior Change Research Prize 2013. Designed for functionality, the transience of ‘non-places’ (e.g. train stations, bus stations, shopping malls, plazas and airports) almost dehumanize, as passersby walk without concern for their surroundings. Inspired by the natural instinct of brushing long grass, sPins translate the gesture of human touch into an interactive architectural performance.

Between the 14th and the 21st of October, 2013 a case study that investigates the phenomenon of social disconnection in urbanized environment was undertaken in Euston Square Gardens. Following the concept of triangulation between urban space – social participants – mediators of communication, the exploration required an architectural intervention (gesture) in the form of interactive installation to facilitate the process of social (re)connection. Being part of the design team to win the call for ideas I had to actively assist the process of introducing the interactive piece into the environment and ensure its proper functioning. This allowed me to observe the rhythm and the movement patterns of the space throughout the period of seven days as well as to capture a number of dialogues with people interacting with the installation.

To fulfill the objectives of Qatarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vision 2030 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Doha is expanding towards the West. Al Rayyan Gate, located 15 km from the capital, is part of the western gate corridor featuring Education City, Qatar Foundation and Qatar National Convention Center. The Mall of Qatar is the center of this new mixed-use community.

This project required custom tailored approach, where sketching, drafting, modeling, rendering and post production were done in a cross-platform environment. The following software packages were used extensively: Revit, Rhino, Grasshopper, Google SketchUp, 3ds Max + VRay, AutoCAD, Google Earth.

Boathouse â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Ocean, Thank you for making us feel tiny, humbled, inspired, and salty .... all at once.â&#x20AC;?

This little residential building is situated a mere hundred meters from the sea and around twenty meters high above it, overlooking the beautiful gulf of Burgas. With the marine theme in mind and considering the fact that it is pretty windy up there, the design has a shell-like structure to inspire the building with a feeling of protection and shelter while giving its inhabitants a way to peer out of it. I was lucky enough to have a wonderful client to make this project happen.

GRAMATIKOVO FOLKLORE FESTIVAL SPACE Revive the old traditions


previous page: vintage photo from the old folklore festival, 1960

The slope of the hill is very steep and the goal was to interfere as little as possible. A few key terraces to accommodate the need for shelter and seating and the means to connect them with the surroundings. The largest structure is the stage for conducting the festival. The hill provides a natural amphitheatrical feeling and acoustics to the stage.

A Pro-Bono project which aim was to help revive the place where the oldest folklore Bulgarian festival â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stranjda Peeâ&#x20AC;?, named after the mountain in which it is held. The municipality of the small village was the main contractor and the construction of the project was funded by an Euro program for support of the village districts.

VOX ART GALLERY Vox art gallery opened on the 27th of October, 2010 in the city of Burgas. Its goal is to support and give a chance for a display of the every growing volume of quality art material in the Sea town.

The building is approached by a pedestrian access from both the north and south. Hence, an important North-South axis was established that separates the east and west wings and along which the central passage was laid out. This passage enlarges into an open-sky atrium at the heart of the campus. The concept behind the atrium space is to be the unifying element for the two wings and the element that makes the site be viewed as one campus.
