CHAIR prototype fabrication documents + plan sets + woodworking
Inspired from the story of Alice in Wonderland the whimsical element plays a strong foward. In the puzzling world of Alice things are not as they seem. Playing up this element the cut outs are light and amusing. Clean lines and simplicity adds modern twist on a classic story for a visual piece of art that is both playful yet quietly elegant.
studio office design + program/layout + system furniture + sustainable methods + system specifications
An office environment of a design firm needs to support multiple activities often occurring simultaneously. To achieve this vision, we become anchored in the ideas of collaboration, flux space and an animated atmosphere. The first layer of the project was to look at natureâ€™s organism and how it houses its major functions at its center. This spurred the Studios concept to mimic the organism by using the core of the building to house the permanent and enclosed office spaces. This provides flexibility of the surrounding floor plan just as an organism needs for constant change and movement. Now flux space has been created around the core that can be changed to fit the needs of the designers for any given situation. This also provides for growth as well as creating a collaborative atmosphere and lessening the idea of hierarchy within a business setting. This design parti uses the core to create a natural flow of circulation that is linked both visually and physically. The idea to infuse the space with energy that is refreshing and fueled with vitality was achieved through introducing the elements found within the natural environment. These elements of earth, fire, WATER and wind are created within the enclaves as well as using transparency, light materials, and a fresh color palette. The design concept ascends to a refreshing, informal experience where energy is always definite.

transitional harmony conceptual + pen & pencil sketch + spacial planning
Man and natureâ€™s struggle to coexist bath house together is a prominent issue. Largest component, containing the entrance and pool space, appears light and projects a feeling of protection with the material skin wrapped around This entry space is then followed by a second component infused into the first creating tension where these two components meet. These transitional spaces become extracted and exposed bringing two dissimilar objects coexisting together.

The language of the exterior pays tribute to the industrial style of the historical grain elevator. The slight rotation of the proposed extension speaks to the circulation paths that surround the site. North orientation and future extension of hello walk are celebrated in the structure. The rotation of the different parts are connected through the ribbon of glass that runs through all 3 of the visible floors.

personal brief I may be small, but I have a mind the size of Jupiter. I tend to fill it with random thoughts and when Iâ€™m lucky they piece together for creative inspiration. A little quirky but mostly just unexpected. I am quite the intellectual surprise often accompanied by my quick wit.. a pet peeve for rambling. Iâ€™m a surprise that packs a punch... ensuring that I am never soon forgotten.
