Located in downtown Austin, the space for the private social club, the “Intersection,” fosters interaction among its members through the continuous flow of circulation. By creating a main unobstructed circulation pathway going through each space of the social club, members are more prone to walk around, discovering different types of spaces along the way. This way, they can potentially meet new people and form long-term relationships, which is one of the club’s main purpose. The spaces featured in the club range in size according to use and can be rented out, if desired, by members.

The space features vertical and horizontal elements in the space that “intersect” the ceiling or walls. The intersecting walls occur mainly in the main lobby, as seen in the axon. In the gallery space, the ceiling intersects a wall. These intersecting planes direct people’s views upward or ahead and allow for double-height spaces at strategic points.

The intersections also happen where materials meet each other, especially glass. For example, when the movable glass screens at the bar slide down or pass one another, they produce a different color or glow; this is also true of the metal screens with glass inserts separating the dining tables shown in the rendering.

02 wallpaper design design iv . spring 2011 . professor: igor siddiqui . 2 weeks

Given a fashion designer, the task was to design a wallpaper that interpreted some aspect of his or her clothing line. My designer was Sophie Theallet. The most notorious characteristic of her clothing line is the movement and flow of each garment created by the the fabric she uses and the construction of each dress. To capture the essence of her clothing line in 2D form, I used Rhinoceros to create a curve that was duplicated, flipped, and rotated to create a specific design. Tesselating that design and adding color to the curves generated a lively, almost 3D wallpaper that tied in with Theallet’s garments.

03 flagship store

design iv . spring 2011 . professor igor siddiqui . 7 weeks


Using an existing site in downtown Austin, the goal was to create a flagship store for designer Sophie Theallet. Elements from the wallpaper design and her clothing line were taken into account for the design of the mesh-like screens in the space. The interior layout of the screens creates specific pathways that guide the customer towards the cash register, located in the middle of the boutique. The maze-like appearance of the plan is meant as a way of gradually immersing the customer into his or her shopping experience, as they walk deeper into the space. The boutique is composed of a bi-patrtite arrangement differentiated by height. Service spaces such as the fitting rooms, offices, and storage are located towards the back and have nine foot high ceilings.The ceiling height increases in the main shopping space and, featuring the layered screens.

The screens are made up of three layers of anodized aluminum with an incorporated display mechanism that consists of an aluminum rod that comes out of the structure. The screens are broken up at designated display spaces to allow the merchandise on display, and its colors, to be seen throughout the interior.

04 shirt modification design v . fall 2011 . professor carl matthews . 2 weeks

A shirt is a layer that mimics the body and its movement. It also tells the user how to occupy it, just as a piece of furniture lets us know how to use it. Exploring the shirt as a way of measuring the body and playing with the idea of tightness versus looseness, the bottom part of my men’s oxford shirt is woven to follow the curves of the body while the top half is let loose.

05 alley flat initiative

partner: tong li . advanced design . spring 2011 . professor steven moore . 15 weeks


The Alley Flat Initiative developed in order to counteract the growing gentrification in East Austin as families in neighborhoods are forced to relocate due to their inability to pay for their properties. This eight-year effort aims to “build small, economical and sustainable Secondary Dwelling Units that provide an opportunity for extended families in East Austin to consolidate their cost of living in one location and reduce their energy, water, and transportation costs� as explained in their website. The site chosen for the development of these alley flats consisted of a neighborhood between 7th and 8th streets with an alley separating the properties longitudinally. This particular neighborhood allowed for the addition of nine possible secondary dwelling units along the alley. Zoning restrictions, water drainage and watershed locations, setback areas, housing types, and impervious cover were taken into account for the design of the alley flats. Our lot was on the corner lot of Lydia and 8th street. There was no construction in the lot, therefore, guided by the zoning code, the lot was subdivided into two lots, one containing a house and an alley flat and the other a second house. The design for one of the houses on the lot is based on the typical housing typology found around the neighbohood. It is a 2,300 s.f. house with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.

A A basic shoebox in design, the house is oriented with its smallest sides facing East and West while the facade containing most of the window area is facing south. The total window to floor area ratio is 12%, meeting minimum energy performance requirements. This orientation also aids in the natural ventilation of air.

The design features a roof drainage system that drives water directly into an 800 gallon cistern. According to rainfall for Austin, when full, the cistern would be able to provide irrigation to the rain garden. The location of the raingardern and the downard slope of the lot aid in supplying water to all of the garden. The design also makes use of solar power through the addition of 17 pv panels (the number was calculated based on an average energy density of 4 KWh/sqft/year).

07 hospitality suite design v . fall 2012 . professor carl matthews . 10 weeks


The goal of this project was to create a hospitality suite, or weekend house, using shipping containers. A shipping container, on its own, is constricting in terms of the space it provides. This design expands on that idea of compression and release as a method of generating different experiences as the user goes through the space. To achieve this, two shipping containers are laid side by side to create a big open space. The walls are rotated to allow for deck space. Two copper patina walls are introduced in each of the entrances to form a “tunnel� that serves as the element of compression and for texture. In addition to these areas of compression, the top container is sunk into the lower one, creating a lower celing height for the kitchen.
