DOWNTOWN MONTICELLO MASTERPLAN The concept for this group project is to bring nature and history together in order to create a space that is welcoming to its users in downtown Monticello, Illinois. This will be accomplished by connecting the site to the current downtown by extending and widening the existing pedestrian alley. Pedestrians will be welcomed by a vegetated area surrounded by 3 buildings. The rst building is a restaurant and small bar. This will be built in the style of an old timber frame brick building. The second building is a retail-ofce building that is built in the style of the current downtown buildings. Finally, a large retail- loft apartment building will replicate the old Pepsin pharmaceutical plant that once existed on the site with large warehouse windows.

TRAVELER’S INN This project focused on a twenty four unit lodge for the off-the-beaten-track traveller. The inn is meant to provide access to a cultural, natural, or historic point of interest. For that reason, students could choose any UNESCO World Heritage Site to develop this inn. Design at all scales was important, from the individual room, to the neighborhood, to the overall site. The location of Mammoth Caves National Park was chosen for this project. The natural landscape of the site as well as the caves and passageways underground were driving factors. This inn provides services to people of all ages, genders, and abilities. Whether a family on vacation or a caver looking for a new thrill, this inn can accommodate everyone.

PEORIA WAREHOUSE DISTRICT This group project created a masterplan concept for a warehouse district in Peoria, Illinois. A large stock of well-constructed buildings would allow for a variety of uses. The concept of New Urbanism was implemented to consolidate the city into this district to reduce urban sprawl. Infrastructure and services would be concentrated to promote self-sustainability. The particular area covered here includes three existing and four new inll buildings. These mixed-use buildings include residential, retail and ofce uses. Uses include condos, ofce spaces, a grocery store, restaurant, and small and medium sized retail environments. The reuse of these abandoned buildings southwest of the central business district would be a jumpstart to the development of the community. Few buildings have been repurposed, but these are some of the most successful buildings in the downtown area. The continuation of these renovations will revitilize the area to a level not seen since the early 1920s. WAREHOUSE CONVERSION TO OFFICE SPACE
