SUTRO’S BATH 01

SUTRO’S BATHS

San Francisco, CA - USA Graduate School Project - Summer 2015 Area: 130,000 sqf Team: Claudia Aguado + Nora Gharib The project consisted on the design of a recreational building that includes Restaurants, Bars, Pool area, a Spa, and a Park component that was added additionally. The building was conceived as a space for relaxation and contemplation through the interaction with nature. The space is located underground with a direct connection to the historic Sutros’s bath site as well as the ocean. The use of light in different amounts controls the ambience of the space. Light uses a hierarchical concept, the higher the guest goes the more light that floods the room. The goal of the light is to touch the soul and finding a poetic connection between man and the space. Light controls the different experience of the spaces.

TROPICAL HOSPITAL 02

MAIN VOLUME:

Contains the E.R, surgery rooms, PACU, service and public areas.

SECONDARY BARS:

Contains the Outpatient (doctor’s offices) and Inpatient activities

PERFORATIONS:

Integration of Courtyards to give the interior space a better quality

TROPICAL HOSPITAL Chihuahua, Mexico Graduate School Project - Spring 2016 Area: 350,000 sqf Team: Claudia Aguado + Nika Mirrafie

The project consisted on the design of a Hospital for the University of Chichuahua campus. The building was treated as a kit of part composed by the main volume (E.R, O.Rs, Public areas, etc), and by an Outpatient and an Inpatient tower. Due to the location, and the fact that no air conditoned were to be included, the used of perforated screens for a better ventilation was proposed. Also the incorporation of courtyards which work as a point of interaction between the public and the private, and helping separate the circulation in a less monotonous way. The couryards also help to bring natural air and light to the interior. 08

RESORT 03

THE ROCK OF THE OCEAN - RESORT St. Georges, Grenada Graduate School Project - Individual Fall 2016 Area: 85,000 sqf The project consisted on the design of a luxurious resort composed by a total of 40 units, restaurants, fitness area, spa, and pool and beach area. The challenge on this project was the connectivity between buildings and the use of land due to the complexity in the topography. The main idea was to develop a resort that exploits the essence of the site, and under that reason bringing the building into the earth was proposed. Also, the intention was to let the architecture be a secondary subject and make the site itself be the main attraction. Internal hallways are underground with perforated gardens that allow to enhance the visitors’ senses and make them pay attention to the sound and the breeze of the ocean, and the light coming through.
