Mediacycle Corporate Interior Design // Fall 2012 // Revit 2013, 3ds Max 2013, Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, InDesign CS6

This project looks to create an adaptable office space for a digital media firm, Mediacycle, located in the heart of Austin, Texas. The new Mediacycle office will be located on the top three floors and roof of the Bank of America building in downtown Austin.

Mediacycle seeks to utilize Austin’s alternative culture to produce a carefree and relaxing work environment. The concept for Mediacycle was derived from the locals’ love to ride bicycles to work. Bicycles are made of two individual wheels that work independently of each other. However, when a chain and pedals are added, these two wheels work in unison to create a bicycle. In a company, the various departments are symbolized by the wheels. They have their own function and responsibilities. When collaboration spaces are added, the different departments can come and work together.


A unique desk, designed for Mediacycle’s various departments, allows employees to roll their workspace to “connect” with coworker’s when they begin a new project. Privacy panels slide down to allow teams to create one larger work surface.


The new Mediacycle office will be located on the top three floors and roof of the Bank of America building in downtown Austin. The reception is located on the top floor and each floor gets more private as occupants move down.

25th Floor Plan

Each of the three floors of Mediacycle’s office contains a variety of collaboration spaces. These collaboration spaces contain both traditional and unique breakout spaces. Spaces containing swings and picnic tables become social areas for coworkers to interact and participate in non-formal collaboration.

24th Floor Plan

The lowest floor of the Mediacycle office contains the innovation hub. This is a space where different sized groups can meet and brainstorm about a project. A large interactive board allows employees to sketch and jot down ideas for the entire group to see. These notes can then be saved and sent to each individual’s computer. The garage doors on each side of the hub allow the space to be open or closed from other areas of the office.

Transitions Rehabilitation Center Healthcare Design // Fall 2013 // Revit 2013, Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, InDesign CS6

This project seeks to create a rehabilitation center for Wounded Warriors near Fort Riley in Kansas. Transitions Rehabilitation Center is located off of Milford Lake, approximately 10 miles from Fort Riley. Transitions provides rehabilitation and treatment services for soldiers returning from combat with physical injuries, such as amputations, spinal cord injuries, and loss of sight.

The concept for Transitions Rehabilitation Center is based on three important aspects in the rehabilitation process including: connecting with the community, transition from military to civilian life, and the discovery of their limitations and inner strength. The building form incorporates three separate wings representing the individual soldier, their family and friends, and the larger community outside of the facility.

The building is arranged along linear form to symbolize the path that these soldiers have set out on in order to reenter civilian life. Irregular atriums cut into this perfect path to represent the setbacks and celebrations along this journey. As occupants walk down the long hallway, these atriums give them a glimpse of the beautiful landscape and lake beyond the facility to refuel their motivation.



1. Patient Drop p-off & 2. Recep ption

The main lobby space serves as a transition from the large community outside of Transitions Rehabilitation Center. This space houses an exhibit which tells the story of the soldiers being treated in the facility. The custom displays were designed to exhibit the art pieces without hindering the view of the lake in the background.

3. Exhibit


The individual wing houses the rehabilitation facilities. Areas such as physical, occupational, and aquatic therapies, as well as meditation and counseling areas, create spaces for soldiers to work to better themselves. Exterior spaces correlate with the interior space adjacent to it. Located outside of the occupational therapy is a balance garden, where soldiers can help refine their walking skills on various materials and elements.


4. Patient Hallwayy & 5. Atrium

The community wing of Transitions Rehabilitation Center creates a space where soldiers can spend time with family, friends, and other wounded soldiers. Areas, such as game rooms, cafes, and a theater, help create a more carefree environment away from rigorous therapies.

WarMemorial Benches Urban Furniture // Spring 2013 // Hand Drawn

The goal of this project was to create a piece of urban furniture to enhance an existing monument in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy. The site chosen for the project is a small piazza space with an existing fountain and small statue.

During World War II the site chosen was bombed and many children lost their lives. The furniture designed is a memorial to honor those lives lost. Each year around May Day, temporary flower planters are moved to this piazza space as a celebration. The new war memorial benches incorporate this May Day tradition by providing permanent planters. Located on the front panel of the benches is a flower for each victim of the bombing. At night, these flowers are illuminated as a reminder of the lives lost.



Hex Furniture Design and Fabrication // Fall 2013 // Revit 2014, InDesign CS6, CNC

This project was designed as a part of the furniture design and workshop class during 5th year in the Interior Architecture and Product Design program. Students were to create and build a piece of furniture throughout the semester.

Hex is a guest chair designed to utilize a variety of manufacturing techniques. The main goal of Hex was to develop the skills needed to construct an entire piece of furniture. Dimensions of existing chairs were tested to develop a chair that was comfortable for the user to sit in. Utilizing the CNC machine, joints and inlay were developed to create a contrasting geometric, pattern within the seat and back of Hex.


The base of the chair was created out of rectangular solid steel that was cut, welded, and then powder coated. The seat and back of Hex were constructed from maple with a contrasting geometric pattern in walnut. The walnut inlay was manufactured on the CNC, while the rest of the chair was constructed by hand.
