Carrington Auditorium

Missouri State University with dake wells architecture

Worked under Andrew Wells, FAIA, and Mark Wheeler, AIA to design a renovated auditorium space to become a classroom which holds 370 students. The ‘cube’, clad in acoustic panels, holds lights and mechanical systems. The light cuts in the cube highlight and connect the original features of the auditorium with entry points. The suspended ‘cube’ changes the volume of the space to a classroom height while allowing the original architecture to remain untouched. The design was modeled in ArchiCAD 14 soley by me, and produced all construction documents.

Cheek hall 3rd floor Missouri State University

Worked under Andrew Wells, FAIA, and Mark Wheeler, AIA, to design and renovate the third floor of Cheek Hall on Missouri State University’s campus. The solution opened up two underused offices into a student lounge to allow a designated place for collaboration. I produced all construction documents in ArchiCAD 14.

k9 doghouse habitat for humanity

Habitat for Humanity’s “Toolbelts and Bowties” holds and annual fundraiser auction, including doghouses. Working with Andrew Wells, FAIA, we came up with a simple solution for the indoor small dog who needs a place to get away from it all. Composed of 9 K’s using scrap pieces of Corten, the simple design solution can be used as a side table, magazine rack, and doghouse. I produced a 40 page booklet in InDesign (CS4) to promote the doghouse.

Newburg School District came to us looking for a solution to a multitude of issues at their main public entrance and cafeteria. Using simple forms and design solutions, Newburg will have a completely renovated kitchen and cafeteria, with a small addition housing new ADA restrooms and a concession stand. Working under Brandon Dake, AIA, Matt Thornton, AIA, and Andrew Wells, FAIA, I was responsible for producing schematic and design development graphics (using hand drawings, CS4 and SketchUp), as well as 3D modeling and producing all construction documents in ArchiCAD 15.
