VALLEY OAK VILLAS Nature is associated with a feeling of well being. It is vital to a personâ€™s physical and mental health to have fresh air, sunshine, and a view of nature. Experiencing these elements provide natural endorphins, faster recovery times, and promote overall good health and well being. Visual stimulation and natural spaces of warmth in the administrative building, outdoor garden, and along every path will allow places for residents and staff to linger and pause in thought. Open views will increase orientation and bring a euphoric healing presence to the facility.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY This â€œAlexander Streetâ€? project was created by a two person team. Special consideration went into pulling together key elements of federal style architecture, prevalent on and near Alexander Street in Albany, NY. Affordable materials were rendered into the construction, considering aesthetics and practicality. Curb side row housing was used to revitalize the area and maximize personal square footage from the existing plot of land available for renovation. After presenting this concept to Habitat for Humanity and a local architecture firm, our ideas were used as a basis of design for the actual project.
“Morton’s Walk at Alexander Street” “In what amounts to the most ambitious project of its 22-year history here, Capital District Habitat for Humanity is planning 16 new twostory attached row houses on Alexander Street and Delaware Place. Ten would be on Alexander, six of them on Delaware. Until now, Jacobson said, Habitat for Humanity has built "safe, simple, decent housing" mostly one or two units at a time, filling in small gaps in city neighborhoods with affordable homes sold with no-interest loans one lot at a time. But "Morton's Walk at Alexander Street," as the project is being called, represents something far more ambitious -- a bid to remake an entire block in vein of other projects recently completed or under way in Arbor Hill and the South End by the Albany Housing Authority.” Read more: http://www.timesunion.com/local/ article/Overdue-renaissance-on-AlexanderStreet-1353601.php#ixzz1zlhliCsG

END This was a team project of 3 people. My participation was in research, branding, interior finishes, space planning and some rendering. This new concept store was created for a shoe company that does not have any physical stores offering a fun environment with a chance to physically use their product. ENDâ€™s sneakers offer a streamlined, light weight design using recycled rubber in the soles of each shoe and recycled plastic bottles which create laces and upper webbing. A spot gluing technique uses fewer solvents and molds, and cuts back on energy consumption. END is striving to be 100% sustainable within 5 years. Materials for this project were selected from readily renewable sources, contain recycled material, and have a long life cycle to reduce waste.

The above rendered perspective shows a view from the entrance and rock climbing area. In this design there are treadmills, a short running track, and rock climbing wall. Layers of reclaimed wood and neutral color offer a rustic outdoor feel to the interior.
The North elevation is the waiting area and mural on the back wall of the store. The East elevation is an image of the sprint track and rock climbing wall. The West elevation is the shoe display wall with video, waiting area, fitting rooms, and rest room.

CIORCAL This was an individually designed, conceptual project based on the shape of a ball. Revit and Photoshop were used to create the floor plan and perspectives. This Irish cuisine restaurant is located in Chicago, as part of a multi-use building. Trendy and upscale, Ciorcal is suited for any age group looking for a lively atmosphere and a great experience with family and friends. FLOOR PLAN BAR PERSPECTIVE

DISCOVERY CENTER Inspired by a pinecone, the images displayed have been hand rendered with colored pencil and marker. To the right are studies of its different design aspects along with ideation sketches showing my process in reaching a building design.
Placed in a wooded area, a spiral staircase around a tree leads people to the structure, set high up in the trees. Inside each level two staircases are located opposite from each other. Doors lead out to decks with non-obstructive glass guard rails. You can peer down the trunk of the tree which runs straight through the building. It offers fantastic views through extra large picture windows and skylights. The overall structure is abstracted dissected parts of the main body of a pinecone, shuffled to add deck space and a fun interior.
GODIVA CHOCOLATIER The concept for this Godiva store is to provide a fresh new look to entice buyers to enter the store, try the product, and buy it. A chocolate bar has been included to give customers a chance to stay longer and try products, such as chocolate cupcakes, hot chocolate, and Godiva liquor. A chocolatier station is staged in the left corner which can be viewed even outside of the store. Fun pops of color in packaging and special chocolate inspired lighting are designed to attract the eye. Finishes such as oversized chocolates on the storefront are an enticing way of welcoming the customer to a memorable chocolate experience. This was my first project using Photoshop and Google SketchUp.
Below is a perspective of the storesâ€™ interior. Chocolate dripping from the soffits spark the sense of taste for chocolate, and add dimension. A beaded wall covering is used on all walls to catch the light and add excitement.

STAR MIX LAMP The assignment was to create an inspirational lamp, considering what it produces and the effects it has on its surrounding. The emphasis is on the effect shadows play on walls when the lamp is illuminated. This is an original piece created after many sketches and studying different materials for construction. The overall look is a mix of natural materials with a contemporary feel. The design could be used in multiple applications, floor lamp, pendants or overhead lighting. To the right are images of the construction process and frame, as well a full image of the finished product. Individual toothpicks were glued one by one into a star formation. Stars were then painted, glued together, and attached to a minimal frame.
Above is an idea of how the table lamp created could be used as an overhead light. This project took approximately 25 hours to complete, from ideation sketches to construction.
