Cal Poly Campus Additions These proposed projects aim to stimulate the functionality and the visual appeal of a very drab and poorly planned College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA.


CAL POLY CAMPUS ADDITIONS [A.D.]

Opening up to the central grass quad of the Cal Poly campus, this cafe and gallery would serve as a valuable resource for the CAED college and the student body as a whole.

CAED Dean’s Office This office location centralizes the Dean’s Office within the wide spread College of Architecture and Environmental Design and creates a visual identity for the college’s administration.


CAL POLY CAMPUS ADDITIONS [A.D.]

This stair serves as a connection between the core of the architecture building and nearby campus circulation. The attached deck creates a south facing gathering space against the warm concrete walls of the building.

Diamond Valley Lake Center This research project was grant funded by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern CA and was completed by a team of Cal Poly graduate architecture students. Project focused on site master planning, architectural design, passive systems integration, and off-grid feasibility.

Stage 1 treatment for potable water on the site is micro filtration followed by chlorine disinfection. This water is used for laundry, site landscaping (as it is within the lake watershed), and as a back-up for toilet flushing.

2

After micro filtration in stage 1, some water is processed through activated carbon filters and an ion exchanger to enhance taste. Then it undergoes reverse osmosis and UV treatment. This water is used for sinks, showers, and evaporative cooling (for air quality purposes).

WW

All wastewater will receive primary treatment by settlement tanks and secondary treatment by a Living Machine System. This treated wastewater will then go through a screen filter, a cartridge filter, UV treatment, and finally chlorination. This will treat the wastewater to California Title-22 disinfected tertiary standards.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT LIVING MACHINE

With its lake side situation, the Faculty Housing and Retreat Center has the unique opportunity to be independent from the municipal water grid. The site is designed to purify and polish usable water as well as treat and reuse its own wastewater through the implementation of a living machine.

ECO-FAB Eco-Fab Kitchen/Bathroom Module

Rain water collection from the roof through the use of a simple gutter provides the greywater system with a supplemental water source. Water collected from the shower, the bathroom sink, the washing machine, and the rainwater collection system is stored in a holding tank under the home until it is needed.

Greywater from the storage tank is periodically circulated and filtered to maintain its quality. The greywater is reused in the house for toilet flushing and outside for landscape irrigation.

Black water produced by the toilet, kitchen sink, and dishwasher is fed to the sewer for treatment.

The water system proposed in the Eco-Fab dwelling unit is designed as a low cost solution to bringing water efficiency and re-use into the affordable housing market.

The length of the south roof overhang in the Eco-Fab models is changed to provide necessary shading depending on the climate and latitude.

Sum

The thermal envelope is made of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) to allow for the most flexibility in insulation thickness while eliminating the large amounts of thermal bridging found in wood framing.

Colder climate models are designed with a higher percentage of glazing on the south elevation to increase solar gain in the winter. Windows are also placed to allow cross-ventilation no matter the orientation or wind direction.

To minimize weight during transportation, Eco-Fab utilizes steel water tanks behind glazing for a trombe wall effect and thermal mass.

With the right amount of thermal mass, glazing, shading, natural ventilation, and insulation Eco-Fab can become a predominately passive dwelling anywhere in the nation.

DVL Center Passive Response Location: Riverside County, CA. This conference center utilizes a secondary roof structure as solar control to either allow sun during the winter or shade the building during the summer. Winter heating is accomplished through direct solar gain and evaporative cooling is used in the summer.

Like the conference center, the individual dwelling units on the site use a secondary roof structure to control solar gain. Direct natural ventilation from winds over the lake, evaporative cooling, and ceiling fans keep occupants cool during the long summer season.

Diamond Valley Lake Master Plan With a truly unique location this master plan draws site lines from the strong axis of the lake’s dam, views, and prevailing winds. Every building on the site has access to amazing view corridors while still maintaining excellent orientation for solar control and cross ventilation.
