ARTISTâ€™S RETREAT RAIC Syllabus - Design Studio 2 Location: Pointe au-Brail, Ontario Date: December 2012 Mentor: Rickson Outhet Architect The intent for this project was for the creation of an individual shelter that could be multiplied and organized within a circulation system of 12 equal units. Each unit was to incorporate three essential elements to fulfill human needs: window, cleansing, and hearth. The site was self-chosen and located north-nest of Pointe au-Brail, Ontario, on a small island at the edge of Georgian Bay. After visiting and documenting the site it was evident that the site was going to play a significant factor in the design of these units. Throughout the region the Canadian Shield penetrates the landscape, with tall pines clenching the barren rock and shaped by the force of the winds off Georgian Bay. In order to minimize the overall footprint of the 12 units and due to the location, it was decided to break the units in to three groups of four units. By keeping the units individual and forming three separate clusters a central gathering space was conceived within each group. Located in the center was a cedar wood tub filled with water for cleansing purposes, while the hearth was indoors for warmth on cool summer nights. Each wall is constructed with operable louvers for privacy, ventilation, and light. Each group of four formed a central courtyard that was used for the cleansing unit, which also doubles as the gathering space. This is a unique space as it is a social gathering, however due to the location it is also a private area for cleansing, in turn combining two areas that are often separated. The deep colours and natural woods, along with the playfulness of the roof planes and walls give the shelters the appearance that they grew from the landscape, and shaped from the force of the winds.

This 126sq.m. residence was designed for a young professional couple looking to minimise their impact on the surrounding environment. The site, an abandoned farmers clearing in a forest, was to house a lap pool, garden areas, and a small home office, with the potential for the addition of two bedrooms in the future. The result of this house was formed by the circulation through the site from the road to the Mississippi River. The house was located at the hinge in the site circulation in which the circulation was continued through a continuous corridor that runs the length of the house with each of the rooms branching off of this space. This line of circulation was further accentuated by a long bench that reaches out from each end of the house and extended into the interior through millwork. This was created to seamlessly blend the interior to the exterior, bringing together the clients dream to marry the architecture with the landscape.

NEW SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY
B For the third year architectural technology core project, the objective was to create a new facility for the building technology department at Loyalist College. Early in the process it was determined that the new school was going to be located on the college campus which has several problems with the existing configuration. First, there is no clear indication of a college campus as you enter the main entrance due to the sea of parking, and secondly, the connection between the football field and main campus building is lost due to the distance between them. The design of this center was an expansion from the original program to include both an indoor and outdoor spectating area for sporting events, creating a public gallery that could function in conjunction with weekend track events as well as a defining edge to the entrance boulevard.
