THE GREEN TOWER / COMPLEX BUILDING

The idea behind this project is to come up with a building with mixed functions that will offer more apartments and spaces for commercial purposes in the city center of Oradea. The concept aims at a greener and denser development, reducing carbon emissions in the future. It is the intension that the sculptural dynamic volume will become a new icon of the city while providing 32 apartments, office spaces, a coffee shop, commercial areas, and an art workshop for teenagers. The tower will be positioned such as to take advantage of sunlight in workspaces, reduce the need for artificial light during the day, and provide beautiful views from the apartment levels. The simple concrete frame structure will be covered by a double facade which will enhance energy efficiency by reducing cooling costs and allow a natural airflow into the building. Moreover, hanging gardens that will help collecting and recycling rainwater will cover the exterior metal structure of the facade. In a larger context, the green facade contributes to integrate the tower with the surroundings on the riverbank and hereby create a dynamic and cohesive unit.

ÆGGEPAKKERIET / MIXED COMPLEX

Godsbanen Master Plan is an urban area in continuous development located in the heart of Aarhus on the plot of the old train warehouse constructions. Due to the great amount of young people moving to Aarhus lately and the lack of apartments, the client wished for a youth housing program with very flexible spaces that are both desirable and affordable for young people who want to live in the city center. This area is Aarhus’s center of art and culture, a very active place with both indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. The main idea was to create 3 different modern housing buildings, with each offering different experiences while being connected to each other in a way that embraces the existing buildings as well as the surroundings. These 3 different buildings function mainly as housing with the possibility of developing restaurants, shops, and other facilities on the ground floor. My main responsibility in this project was to work with 2 of the buildings: Pakhuset and Æggepakkeriet. My tasks were to solve the modular layouts of the apartments and commercial spaces and to come with facade solutions and material proposals. Besides drawings and analyses I also worked in model making and presentation layouts. Practical placement at SLETH Architects Office - 2015 Supervisor: Søren Leth Contact: sl@sleth.dk

AARCH WORKSHOPS / INTERIOR DESIGN

This project represents my solution to the task of coming up with a proposal for the attic of the Oradea University of Architecture which is presently used for storage. Since the school is currently in need of large and flexible spaces where students can study, read, and work together, my proposal suggests to transform this area into a creative space with workshops for the architectural department. The main idea is to divide the large area into smaller subunits that are flexible, modern, and naturally illuminated. Here students can work individually or in groups according to their preferences in inspiring and dynamic surroundings. This proposal includes a new innovative library provided with working and studying areas and two open workshops which can easily be rearranged into an area for presentations. Furthermore, the proposal includes an art workshop, a small kitchen, an area for printing and modeling, and a restroom for students. The materials chosen are highly contemporary and easy to maintain. Examples include white finish, visible beams of the structure, light wood finishes, mate glass, and epoxy resin floors. The proposed structure made of lamellar wood is very simple and easy to install, permitting large openings and the possibility to experiment with the interior spaces.
