07 GRINDERS COFFEE FLAGSHIP Interior Architecture Best. Design to Life 2016

The brief was to re-design the original flagship Grinders Coffee store and roasters following a re-branding of the Grinders coffee brand, which has been an integral innovator in the Australian coffee industry since 1962; and it all started when Giancarlo opened Grinders all those years ago at 277 Lygon Street. To re-engage with the historical significance of the brand, and to reinforce credibility within an every changing and evolving competitive industry, Grinders embarked on a brand refresh in 2016. This included the Best. Design to Life team being selected to partner on a new physical brand experience and creation of an Australian flagship on Lygon Street. I was engaged by Best. Design to Life as the lead Architectural Designer to carry out the design of a new flagship store for the original Grinders Coffee in Lygon Street, Melbourne. The project had a tight two-week deadline and small budget as parameters, but still succeeded in achieving silver at the Design 100 Melbourne Design Awards in 2016. Some of my duties included but were not limited to: - Interior, product and lighting design - Architectural construction drawings generated in Revit 2016 - 3D digital model of interiors + products - Meetings regarding consolidation with engineer

08 AVALON RESIDENCE Residential Architecture Susi Leeton Architects & Interiors 2016

Our key design intention was to ensure the protection of the original building form, envelope and fabric. We have prepared a number of schemes and feel that the submitted design is highly respectful of the existing house and its significance as a piece of 18th century, Edwardian architecture in the context of Melbourne, Australia. Our contempoarary proposal is deliberately sensitive and understated, to retreat behind the original heritage house. The residence is expected to be complete by the end of the 2017. My role and duties in this project include but were not limited to: - Architectural and interior design - Architectural construction drawings and 3D model generated in Revit 2016 - Interior joinery drawings done in AUTOCAD 2016 - Town Planning (submitting to local Council for approval)

Context The Venezuelan government lacks the funds to deal with over 2 million families that remain homeless as a result of an over populated land mass. Citizens have found homes and shelter in abandoned buildings throughout the city. The government currently has no solution to the problem of “squatters”, who are a large group homeless people that have taken refuge in the abandoned banking tower, The Torre De David (Tower of David). The 45- Storey skyscraper was funded by the Venezuelan entrepreneur, David Brillembourg and never became the symbol of abundance it was intended to be. It was erected in the booming financial centre of Caracas in the early 1990’s but a banking crisis truncated the dream. 20 years later, the incomplete Torre De David (Tower of David) has staircases that lead nowhere and ramps that spiral into infinity. The building was experiencing something of renaissance, not as a home for a prosperous bank, but 2,500 homeless. “It was a city within a city; with corner shops on every floor, cybercafes and apartments that double as hair saloons and other types of informal businesses” says Leo Alvarez, a lawyer who has documented these informal settlements. It was functioning quite well, with no authority other than their pastor, before the residents were evacuated after seven years due to the building being deemed unsafe by the government. Proposal The proposed Tower of David is a modular design, intended to be implemented on the abandoned skyscraper Torre De David, in Caracas, Venezuela. It is a closed loop system which takes waste food, coffee, water and other organic products from the surrounding city and transforms it into an organic building material. The intention is to bring life back to the tower and make it safe for the occupants by fixing unstable and exposed areas, as a result, the tower will supply jobs and provide self-assembling and efficient building materials for the city. The food scraps which are collected from the surrounding city are brought to the tower, where they are placed into a building block mould with the chemical Mycelium, which is extracted from mushroom roots. The mycelium growth technology has been developed by Evocative in 2007 and so far it has been used as a packaging material. This system is not the first of its kind, “The Living” Architecture firm used Mycelium in building the Hy - Fi project in New York, 2014. The proposed Tower of David is a larger scale system, which collects, grows and manufactures its own food, mycelium and building materials within the abandoned tower. The solidification of mycelium as a building material will provide the tower with the necessary material to be deemed safe again, as well as producing sustainable organic building material from the cities own waste at very little cost and manual labour.

The proposed New Zealand School of Music’s main concept is conceived as informality within uniform structure. The design was inspired by the typical “suburban garage”, and how it has evolved into a place where artists, innovators, and musicians have been born (figure 1). The building design therefore aims to replicate these qualities of the space, in order to inspire - either consciously or subcon- sciously - success in students. The design will mimic the qualities of a garage is by simulating a structural system that follows the concept of a matryoshka doll, (fig- ure 2). Multiple prefabricated light-weight, timber-framed parametric structures of varying size will provide programme, all under a single steel canopy. The steel canopy is imagined as a support for the parametric structures which will accommodate acoustic material to provide adequate sound quality in recording studios/performance areas. The design proposed two structural systems, prefabricated units that will have their own structure and will be suspended from a larger canopy. Overall the design will features a multitude of smaller programmatic volumes within the over arching canopy volume. Use of the large canopy will provide cohesion between individual programmes, by capturing them under a singularly read space. This will emphasis and enhance the relationship between audience/per- former and public/private spaces. The rooms in the School of Music will have the ability to adapt the size and programme of the space, and ultimately increase the effectiveness of its acoustic capability.

The interior of the panels have been lined with 24” x 24” x 1.25” Micro fibre acoustic material. The technology features: Wave splitting technology, Multiple discrete acoustic designs, immersive sound, sonic demodulation and an ultrathin profile.

A track and roller system on the a suspended ceiling holds the responsive timber acoustic panels.

Panels fold upwards on themselves and remain in the ceiling until they are next scheduled to moderate light, sound and temperature in a programme.

50x50 timber triangulated panels are used for it’s excellent acoustic reverberation. The facade geometries distributes sound evenly in both large and small performance venues.

The acoustic shells are programmed to cover tutorials, recording studios and teaching areas and can move in any orthogonal direction within its designated area.

30mm Diameter steel wires connect to individual panels to hold the parametric structure.

Adaptive Programming offers the students a collaborative open plan environment to share learning. While also providing smaller, more intimate environments for small or large teaching groups.

04 HYDROTHERAPY POOLS Peter Wood Victoria University of Wellington 2015 The underlying purpose of the project is use three different mediums, analogue drawing, digital media and physical modelling as a type of exploration on process within geometries. I intermingle analogue with digital to enrich not only the final artefact but to enrich the act of making. Weaving between analogue and digital processes allowed me to take advantage of both worlds. What characterises creating graphics by hand vs. by computer? As a designer I feel comfortable with pen, pencil or cardboard and tend to be attracted to the immediacy and control of the familiar. Traditional media foregrounds the craft of working with material properties, such as the grain of wood being carved. A pencil allows free exploration of words, calculation s, sketches, diagrams, unconstrained by electronic equipment or a programmers’ direction. The computer trades off some of this freedom to offer control and power, which is why I chose to add this phase, to refine and develop. Rather than use it as my central process. I had intended this exploration to be led by a type of programme, pools, more specifically, pools that could be used to innovate and enhance current methods of hydrotherapy. The growth rate of scientific advances in the fields of medicine, material science and biology provide an insight into the potential methodologies of water therapy that prove there is a demand for architecture that can provide an appropriate space for these kinds of visionary programmes to flourish. Hydrotherapy can be defined broadly by a form of medicine, in particular naturopathy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy that involves the use of water for pain relief and treatment The scope of the project isn’t specifically aimed at providing a notion of architecture for today, but instead providing a vision that embodies the radical advances, changes and innovation of today, for the future. It should cater those who require any scope of water therapy, ranging from Canine hydrotherapy (directed at pre-operative or chronic condition on of dogs) to Cryotherapy (cold water immersion, used to treat cardiac arrest patients). The scope of the physical processes which will define the architecture, may be limited by its medium, and will be carried out in phases, drawing, digital and modelling.

Section Process: My drawings progressively become more refined, the initial geometries become faded, new shapes that are both organic and rigid take form from within the hidden grid that is the site context. Angles are divided into themselves, I used lines to inform relationships between different points. Architecture was found through the process of drawing Diagram: The section has been used diagrammatically, to describe the intention of the pools. Patients will be supported, as they progress through their treatment. They will transition to different pools, similar to how the water will flow from one pool to another. It’s function is to recycle and re-use the salt water reserves from the waterfront.

Pool Hierarchy & Water Recycling The digital phase allowed me to clarify unresolved parts of the drawing phase. The way in which they worked and also their relationship to the site. The model describes the way in which the water is collected from the waterfront, filtered through each pool, in a hierarchical type way and finally recycled back into the water front to continue within the ecosystem.

05 URBAN LIGHTHOUSE Achille Segard Victoria University of Wellington 2015

Site & Sunlight Analysis The site is situated in a area heavily covered with native trees and bush. The sacrifice of this wonderful green area is that there is limited sunlight on the site. The day was spent sketching the shadows and light paths of the area.

Process (Sketchbook Entries) Drawings show the process of design in response to the Sunlight and Site analysis. The resolved design is a kinetic periscope machine house, which is responsive to the varying sunlight exposure throughout the day.

Proposal In order to maximise the minimal light received by the site, the proposed design captures light similar to that of a periscope and directs it into the home.

03 CONSTRUCTION DETAILS Guy Marriage Victoria University of Wellington 2015 The following drawings show construction details of a parametric facade system that is light responsive and registers the amount of light exposure at any given period of the day. Based on the programme in a specific area of the building, the facade will alter it’s porosity to suit that programmes needs. Ultimately, this system gives the building owner programme versatility, and the building itself a longer life span. It reduces the need for retrofitting if parts of the building are sold, meaning that the new owner doesn’t need to add or remove windows for additional light to support the new programmes.
