THE FALLS BREWERY


Interior entry rendering

This competition project was based around creating a microbrewery and restaurant in the small town of Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. Featuring a gravity flow brewing system, many design decisions were a result of the extensive research into the process of creating beer and the relationship of craft and client. The results focused around community gathering, and the celebration of the brewing process. The vertical circulation to the pub space then wraps around the brew house, further embracing the celebration of the brewing process. To clarify the visual structure and its connections, a section model of the design was created. The outdoor space that draws itself over the street allows for extended sight lines along the main street in Cottonwood Falls. This creates a closer connection between the community environment and the brewery.

Throughout the design process, many study models were created along with quick sketches of schemes and concepts. Site location and context were extremely vital to the design of this project. A variety of alternative roof conditions were also examined.

Acknowledging original conceptual flaws in the existing design prompted a second diagrammatic iteration of an alternative solution for the brewery placement within the structure. This allows the brewery process to settle within the natural focal point of the geometry.

Project location

This project was produced in cooperation with the town board from Jihlava, CZ. It was intended to give economically reasonable design ideas to adjust the existing Prior building to improve the town square. The design focused on the interior exterior relationship of the Prior building and the town square. Project inception began with the collection and formation of data to analyze and inform the necessary programmatic requirements for the Prior to be successful. The analysis conducted throughout the project consisted of a 45 page document of diagrams and imagery to support various site conclusions which would influence each individual design project. The final product of the design includes a centralized bus station, newly formed outdoor spaces, and storefront for additional shops to create a stronger relationship to the street level environment.

The Liemert Park neighborhood is home to a mix of cultures in west LA. The focus of this competition project was to bring these cultures together in a single community center. A jewel within the landscape draws people into the site and provides a variety of functions including a stage, a sculptural piece, or a simple gathering point. The surrounding buildings contain an intimate museum, library, and classrooms to represent and support the community as a whole. The jewel in the center of the site, the “blooming rose”, was inspired by a poem from Tupac, “The rose that grew from concrete”, thus connecting this concept to the site which holds Rap battles in the nearby green space of Liemert Park. Context and relationship was extremely important to the design concept. The site proposal includes a proposal to close down Degnan Boulevard and create a pedestrian avenue to reinvigorate local businesses and allow events to be held such as the drum circles that are common in the neighborhood. Traffic studies reinforced the need for the pedestrian space.

This competition project was based in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston, Texas. The focus was to design a school in recognition of John S. Chase, one of the founding members of NOMA. The site measures 295 acres and is located on the western edge of Sunnyside. The goal was to integrate education into a larger masterplan that drew relationships between the local community and the major educational institutions in Houston. To fully engage the opportunities of the site, a master plan was developed to conceptually and physically relate these new spaces to the existing neighborhood and Houston as a whole. Many of the public spaces were named after significant members of the Sunnyside community to further relate to the existing neighborhood. These spaces would also provide a brief history, and reflection of these important people to the visitors of the civic spaces.

COMMUNITY & EDUCATION

The formal connection of education to major and local institutions in Houston created a unique site grid in which the master plan formed. Northern datum lines connect to the major universities while southern and eastern lines reach to local middle and high schools binding the site to the local context through education. The organic pathway binds the site together through educational points such as the communal urban farming and bio-educational park where the community can learn, not just students at the school. The site is structured around 5 elements. Major community structures provide support for the locals through workforce training centers and the school. Housing provides single family, walk-up apartments, and mixed use for a variety of socio-economic levels. Green terrain encourages locals to engage with their neighbors through a multitude of outdoor activities. Transit allows for the larger connection to Houston and to allow other communities to reach Sunnyside creating a hub. Paths provide the network of connections within the site to join the major spaces together and provide walk-ability across the site.

It also provides mass transit where existing methods are currently limited. The transit line creates the opportunity for other economic boosting amenities, such as mixed use development and market space.

Providing housing diversity is essential to building a community that accommodates individuals from a diverse level of economic incomes and lifestyles. The variety of housing types provides opportunities for environmental design development such as repurposing shipping containers as housing units.

VOLLAND ARTIST RESIDENCY


Volland is a habitat of history and one remaining resident. The exit of the railroad from the town left it dwindling without purpose. The Volland Store recreated an environment of exploration and conversation through art and community. This project was essentially phase 2 in bringing life and purpose back to Volland. Working with a real client, the 5th year studio redesigned an existing 1930's kit house to support an artist residency program and accommodation. The iterative process was extensive due to the client's feedback and needs, along with budget constraints. The product of the design efforts was a studio wide collaboration of Design+Make with el dorado architects in Kansas City. The design of the project was also intended to be constructed by the studio in a design build project delivery. Demolition, design mock-ups and in depth explorations of Volland as a place were conducted to inform the final design.

The understanding of place was explored through a variety of studies including the lighting experiment inspired by Mel Ziegler and Carlo Scarpa. Further development examined the northern most house in Volland which would become the focus of the project.

Compact Service Core

Development and evolution of the design stemmed from earlier proposals such as the all-in-one scheme that included a physical studio space integrated into the program. As the project progressed, the budget and schedule dictated that a separate studio would be more suitable than the highly compact all-in-one design. The final design focuses on two interventions on the exterior of the house while maintaining the historical vernacular of the structure. The interior focuses on a highly efficient core with program space flowing around the services.

The project delivery was to be a full design build with the studio producing a full CD set for fabricating many of the steel, casework and some furniture elements within the house.

STUDY ABROAD


Travel is the only way to truly experiences environments, cultures and architecture. While studying architecture at Czech Tech in Prague, the opportunity to travel across Europe was never so easy. I experienced a total of 16 Countries and over 40 cities throughout the semester abroad in Europe. These unique experiences have shaped me as a designer by allowing me to understand the tangible environments to better perceive scale, style, and details. It has been the most invaluable part of my educational career.
