THORNCROWN CHAPEL The 1:20 scale model of Faye Jones’ Thorncrown Chapel was constructed as a requirement for the Building Technology 1 course. The project was a 5-person collaboration using existing plans of an established structure as a way to better understand the construction process. The project was constructed over a two-week period using basswood, plywood, wood glue, and metal sheeting. The final product was the result of each piece being hand cut using tools, such as the table saw and band saw, which were then meticulously joined together in a series of trusses. The construction involved three different truss systems, with multiple joints, resulting in a detailed final scale model. 5

St. Paul’s Anglican Church: Hospice and Affordable Housing Proposal The purpose of this project was to provide an affordable housing and hospice design for St. Paul’s Anglican Church, located in Almonte, Ontario. The main challenge was to create a design that would respectfully coexist with the existing historic architecture on the property. The existing buildings include a Church dating back to 1863, a Rectory from the 1880’s, and a Parish House from the 1830’s.

The overall project resulted in the introduction of three new structures for the affordable housing, and the repurposing of the Parish House into the Hospice. Important factors that required great consideration during the design process included arrangement, creating a cohesive environment between the existing and the new, and functionality. The design of the affordable housing pulled from the architectural qualities of the original, while at the same time incorporating modern qualities that created a visible distinction from the existing. The arrangement of the structures allowed for continuous views and easy access between buildings, an important component of the design because it creates both a physical and visual connection between the buildings. Thus creating a sense of community between the Church and the new structures.

Brampton Soccer Centre The purpose of this group project was to create a graphic documentation and analysis of an existing building to better understand the building’s construction and performance. This included analysing the structure at the overall, intermediate, and micro scale.This resuted in the construction of a 3D computer model of the systems including the sprinkler system, HVAC, Plumbing, lighting, and structural systems. As well as a computer model of the complete exterior of the building. 11

Historic Site Recording: Patterson Hall

The objective of this group project was to study and document Carleton University’s Paterson Hall, one of the first buildings on the University’s campus. Documentation of the historic site included research of the site’s history, a Statement of Significance, building code analysis, and the creation of detailed architectural drawings. The project involved the use of surveying techniques such as the total station, photogrammetry, hand recording, rectified photography, HDR photography, and laser scanning. The final result of the project was a collection of the architectural drawings and historical data collected throughout the term, which was presented in booklet form to building owners and custodians of the site.

Belvedere Design 6

The design of an addition to the existing Paterson Hall was meant to establish a visual connection between the campus and the river by creating accessible views. This was achieved by the design of a belvedere, which will tower above the existing structure creating views and providing a space for students to use for studying and lounging. My design of a belvedere took into consideration how the sun would affect the comfort of the space, as well as creating an addition that would provide optimal views of not only the river but also the rest of campus. The belvedere will allow for 360-degree views through the use of glazing on all four sides. The offset pattern of the floors, which give an undulating appearance, provide shade to the floor below by creating overhangs.

PA Floorplan Designated Study Abroad: Guadalajara, Mexico

The purpose of the DSA trip to Guadalajara, Mexico was to document and record the historic structure, Casa Cristo, designed by Mexican Architect, Luis Barragán, in 1927. Documentation was completed by the cohesive work of students from Guadalajara’s University Centre for the Arts, Architecture, and Design and Carleton University’s Architectural Conservation and Sustainability program. The project took place over a two-week period and involved 8 days of fieldwork and 3 days of data processing. Fieldwork consisted of advanced recording techniques such as the use of the total station and AutoCAD to take measurements and record points resulting in the accurate creation of floor plans, elevations, and sections. Further documentation was collected through scaled-rectified photography, panoramic photography, hand sketches/measurements, photogrammetry and photography of character defining, condition, environmental, and architectural features. The DSA project resulted in a historical framework of Casa Cristo, which will help to secure the historic value of the structure for years to come.

DUC Library Expansion The purpose of this Studio project was to design an expansion for the Dominican University College, located in Ottawa, Ontario. Due to an increase in the number of books, the College needed to expand the library into the church space. The main requirements for the expansion included a rare books room, multiple reading rooms, study spaces, and enough shelving to allow all books to remain on display. The main focus of my design for the Dominican Library expansion takes advantage of light and space to create an environment that is both comfortable and enlightening. The main challenge behind the design was overcoming the restrictions of the existing building to create an intervention that was respectful to the historic value of the structure. Solutions to this challenge included the set back of floors to better display the existing stain glass windows and allow the light to flow through the space. The use of transparent material and careful arrangement of furniture was also important to the exchange of light between various spaces.

19


Longitudinal Section

The dividing wall between the church space and the library was designed with the intention of creating a visible connection between the two spaces, while at the same time providing each area its privacy. The design of the wall allows light to travel between the two spaces, as well as share views from certain angles within each space. The wall features a cross, which is spread across multiple panels creating an image that comes together as one when standing in the center of the church or attending sermons. This was meant to highlight the importance of that particular area, and is reflected by the arrangement of the pews, which are angled towards the cross and the pulpit.

Design Economics:The Arbour 23


The purpose of this project was to gain a thorough understanding of real estate development from project conception to completion. This involved incorporating financial objectives without sacrificing the quality of the design. The project involved the mixed-use development design of three properties on Wellington St. in Ottawa, Ontario. The final project was the result of a four-person collaboration, and resulted in the complete design of a mixed-use building with the entire financial breakdown from conception to completion, including a Pro-forma. The upper five floors are condominiums and the ground floor is a designated commercial space, parking is located underground. The design took into consideration zoning requirements, as well as the architectural qualities of the neighbourhood to better integrate with the surroundings.
