Lighting Concept Model for Cincinnati Art Gallery

Rowhouse - In-Law Suite Covington, Kentucky

Located directly across from downtown Cincinnati, the objective of this project was to create a house with an In-Law suite that is separate from the main home, but remains a part of the whole. While main living areas were situated deep inside the building, the use of light wells brings natural light into those spaces

Cincinnati Art Gallery Yeatman’s Cove, Sawyer Point Park

The objective of this project was to create a riverfront art gallery in Cincinnati. Combining conditioned and unconditioned spaces to allow for a variety of artwork, I integrated the grid system of Cincinnati to create an undulating walkway that provides both gallery space and shade.
