1.Virtual City

This projects was about creating a GSI for a Carmagnola,Italy. The created GSI then used to produce master plan and ultimately a design for the land at the heart of the city. The study has been carried by me as a part of group in Manchester and other counterpart urban design students in Italy to provide more accurate information from the actual site.

Structure of Information

Carmagnola is a comune in the Province of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located 29 km south of Turin. As of July 11, 2007, it had a population of 27,043. Population Density : 297.3 /km² Climate : Humid subtropical climate Altitude: Minimum 232 m, Maximum 273 m, Average 253 m Economy: The economy of the town is currently linked to the industry and intensive production of vegetables and cereals, which the particular soil makes very productive.

2.Hybrid Architecture

This work has been carried out during the Taught phase of my Master. The objective of the module was to appriciate the advances in technology and to reflect on the role of knowledge in our society and to to critically speculate on the way we will share knowledge and transfer it in the close future. and I developed a conceptual design of a knowledge sharing space, according to the rationale and the individual brief.

KNOWLEDGE ACADEMY China is a country that has its own approach to the science in comparison to any other countries around the world. For instance, Chinese have their own method of medications. All languages are using alphabets in their writing but Chinese writing is phonetic. Universal method of military practices are similar but Chinese have their own martial arts. Even their style in Art is different than the rest of the world. These differences distinguishes them from other countries. But now with the fast development in their country the society has received a shock. People have their own old tradition and are struggling to adopt the new technologies and new culture evolved because of the economical growth of China. Among people of China, I have identified a particular

generation of youngsters who are ready to create knowledge. Ant tribe is a term used to describe this group of low income university students who live on poverty line in china and hoping that they will find a job related to their university education. The diagram above is drawn by me showing the possible potentials of this group of people who mostly live in Dongcheng Area.

In knowledge academy the aim is to make a bridge between the Chinese culture and the rest of the world. The Idea is to introduce a building where people of Beijing and tourist could use to learn about each other by using an unlimited internet access in the building. Users can surf internet, learn new things and even get qualified on what they learned, but more importantly the aim of this project is to translate the knowledge of both sides and transform it into a domestic knowledge. The building is contained of three saparate sections that are designed differently to look saparate but the activities are associated to each others. Three sections are: 1- The Atrium: is a place to share, discuss, brain storm and ideate. An open area with natural lighting to enable users to interact efficiently. free WIFI, coffee shop and seating areas are also provided. Inspiring questions and ideas should be shown on the monitors in the atrium. 2- Tower: Computer labs are the substitute of the libraries and universities in today age of technology. 4 level of the tower is allocated for this purpose. The ground floor and first floor are office and foyer. With the advance of internet and everyone’s access to the information, people know many things and learn lots of information. This building introduces an online database system by which when users watch a tutorial or read a document, it will be recorded and sometimes, relevant qualification can be awarded to users from knowledge academy. 3- Active museum and gallery: Since building is located at the heart of Dungcheng, many people as well as bike runners are passing by. Apart, the site is close to many tourist areas of Beijing, therefore, this could attract the visitors and also convey the aim of this academy to the local community.

List of suggested construction materials to be used: Atrium: ETFE is a fluorine plastic which has a high resistance to temperatures change. This material used is used in some roofing structure to hold the temperature inside such as Eden project in Cornwall and Beijing national aquatic centre. It is a suitable material to be used for the Atrium glazing. Tower. The façade of the tower is Terracotta rainscreen cladding. Which is cheap, light and colorful. The roof is to be filled with fiber optic bundles. These bundles than can light up the office spaces. Adjustable louver is also introduced to control the direct light toward the building. Interactive museum: is going to be made of concrete.

3.Design of a new canteen

This poject has been done during my degree where I learnt the basics of analysis of the site and the importance of it for the design. The brief was to design a new Canteen next to the library and also to propose new facilities such as Internet Cafe and Bar.

4. Architectural detailing Software used: Autodesk 3D studio max + Autocad 2012 for Mac

In this project I was asked to improve the architectural detailing of the famous chips building. A site visit to the actual site and some research and advice helped me to figure out the current used details and facade system. using 3d studio max to visualise helped me to see the potentials for improvements and I developed it by research back up I done through famous detailing journals.



About project Chips building is part of the new islington regeneration plan, The scheme was initially proposed by Alsop architects master plan and Urban splash was appointed by local authority to develop the area.

The purpose of this document is to investigate the possible detailing solutions that could have been adopted to improve the functionality and appearance of the building in terms of architectural aims of the project as well as structural aims of it.

The development plan is located between the two victorian canals of Rochdale and Ashton and at the east of the city centre of Manchester. The scheme had a big influence on the community and city. Chips building is one of the most important part of this project. Chips building is comprised of three large chips shape boxes standing on top of each other. The building has 9 storey with a basement. Cantilevered shape of the middle chips and the wave of all chips made the building unique with outstanding.

At some points spaces of the apartments are limited because of the wave shape of design.

Part of the roof of the second chips is used for the communal use of the residents. some apartments has their own private balconies. The building is almost 100m long which has fitted 142 apartment in itself plus some area for retail units.

Construction of chips The project superstructure is made of reinforced in-situ concrete, the corridors played an important role for the stability of the building, the long corridor act as core for the structure to keep the massive cantilevers hanged. The facade of chips is made of three different color timber cladding with a text stamped in a large format size on the cladding to reflect the heritage of Manchester as the birth place of Industrial revolution. The cladding is installed on the MetSec frame system to hold the windows and cladding. This system is connected to the roof and floor.

A double facade building. the outer-leaf is fully glazed and the inner leaf acts as a secondary facade.The void between the two facade is made of a thick glass that acts as a balcony. This type of cantilever inspired me for the middle chips cantilever. it can make outstanding view and feel for the residents. A feel of being in sky. Vocational school in Recklinghausen - Detail journal 2011. pg 60. The use of the concrete balcony and two facade made more space for the building and also improved the appearance of the building. The connection of the concrete balcony to the concrete structure was one of the important element of the

Glazing floor balcony can be adopted for the front and the back cantilevered of the chips to express the feel of the long cantilever.

In order to keep the cantilevered balcony and have it connected to the main floor concrete, some special connections can be used which depends on the type of balcony made in different size and shapes. One of the best one is made by the company Schock which acts as an effective thermal bridging insulation as well.

Proposed improvement into the facade made by 3D Studio Max 2012 - One of the identified issues of the chips after the construction was that the wave shape of the chips have caused some apartment to have a narrow space. Adding balcony to each apartment will increase the size of each floor and where required to eliminate the inside issue the interior can be exposed and the wall can be located at the edge of the balcony. (As shown in above simulation, curtain wall is used where it is exposed) The color is going to be kept and Trespa metal cladding shall be used on the facade.

The gap between the cladding and the wall frame is for the wind driven rain to be ventilated and dried. the barrier takes the water to the to the bottom of the wall. A steel sheet will be located at the corner as it is illustrated to move the drain water on the balcony’s insulation. the follow of air in the gap dries out the damp. The balcony must have a gentle slope toward the outside to drain the water.

5. Conversion Design

BARN conversion

This is an individual work focused on the conversion of an old barn into two different use, office and residential. Dealing with this task required me to do research about English haritage criteria and best practices to know the limits.

I confirm that this work is mine, I have not plagiarized and there is no hidden collusion. I have read and agree with the Declaration on Conduct of Assessed Work Form on the student intranet, URL: http://intranet.scpm.salford.ac.uk/studentintranet/ Under:Information-Undergraduate Information-Declaration on Conduct of Assessed Work


Case Study Hillcot barn in hereford: Is a good example of good conversion. This barn is a 300 years old and located in a rural agricultural area and was using as a warehouse, client determined to change the use of it into a residential use. RBA architect was commissioned to convert the barn. The barn was located on the top of the hill which had made the

Conservation issues We owe to our history, we have to make sure we are appreciating the quality of our past and we are maintaining it for the future. The term “conservation” is used to express this responsibility.It is defined in oxford dictionary as”preservation and repair of archaeological, historical, and cultural sites and artifacts” and “prevention of wasteful use of a resource”. British heritage explains that the “Considered change offers the potential to enhance and add value to places, as well as generating the need to protect their established heritage values. It is the means by which each generation aspires to enrich the historic environment” (British heritage conservation policies, pg.14).

Meticulous recording: Before any stages, a comprehensive detail and document comprising photographs floor plan and drawing must be made to help the designer to recognise the architectural merit of the building and also will be guide to refer to when trying to retain some elements. Minimum intervention: Any alteration should be as minimum as possible. when the characteristics of the old design is identified the whole effort should be made to retain all the elements internally and externally, whether it is the internal layout or its roof tiles. Minimum loss of fabric: When adapting the materials, the cultural

Even though the conservation can be done in different ways such as by repairing, restoring and even some time reconstruction. but the scope of all are same which is to fulfill the reasons for retaining that building. The reasons we keep old building are very, might be the historical or architectural interest of it, might be economical when it is cheaper to retain the existing one or might be the existing technological quality of them. Many other reason can be identified to determine us about retaining the design of a building. The British heritage has listed the main conservation principles as follows: barn to enjoy a delighting vista. The designers lifted the roof up for few inches to allow sun light into the buildings. Also the big entrance of the barn has been converted into the fully glazed door and window to allow full sun light and view for the residents. The conversion at the same time respected the dignity of the old barn and shaped in way to appreciate the value of the stone walls. the connection of the walls and the floors designed by using glazing to present the quality of the old barn and expose more light into the ground floor. The shape of the barn had also some similarity with the barn in question as both sides elevations rises from ground floor to first floor level. this was a good potential to accommodate ventilation system because of the level rising of the roof.

■ “The historic environment is a shared resource and it belongs to everyone, therefore it is the everyone’s responsibility to protect it ■ Everyone should be able to participate in sustaining the historic environment ■Understanding the significance of places is vital. the quality of the existing buildings can only be appreciated by understanding the qualities of buildings. ■Significant places should be managed to sustain their values ■Decisions about change must be reasonable, transparent and consistent. Any change in the look of the building must be justified, it also has to be clear to enable distinguishing where the change occurred with the existing old building to express its own time quality and maintain the value of the old building. ■ Documenting and learning from decisions is essential” James Douglas suggests in his book some of the criteria which is believed to be the key consideration for any local authority or conservation funding body. these criteria are as follows:

Structural system of the barn in question

value of it should be considered to make sure the alteration will not damage it. Reversibility: When adding and removing to the existing building, it should always be considered what if the alteration is no longer fits the new function, could it be removed and reversed to its old shape by not doing a major work. Adding new opening is an example of irreversible intervention. Compatibility of use:The new adaptation should be consistent with the area and current usage of the building, in other word, an inappropriate use of building will affect the status of building. Explicitness of alteration: Any alteration and adjustment to the layout of the building is better to be apparent and noticeable rather than vague. The new and the old both have their own excellence and should not try to mix together, a clear distinction should always be made. Sustainability: All decisions should be made in scope of keeping the heritage for the future generations and minimum pollution and energy usage should be gained.


The modern barn is conversion of an american old barn into a modern barn in Connecticut,USA. Even though it may not be a good practice, but exposing the timber beams and not using them as a floor was inspiring where there is a lack of light. As mentioned before, the length of the barn in-question is about 27 meter to 9 meter width which means we are dealing with a large space. (approximately 243sqm ground floor area) In order to accommodate the space efficiently, we need to understand the issues of the existing rooms and spaces, then we need to see how we can improve the relationship of the interior by retaining the position of existing walls as much as possible. For the use of residential, the barn can be divided into two or three separate house or flat, since the space is too big for one resident. In the next few page different elements and rooms of the barn will be considered and some analysis of the best possible position of rooms for both uses will be made to optimize the usage of the space. The Image below demonstrates the sun orientation in summer, and winter in relation to the barn. Modern barn house - http://www.busyboo.com/2011/09/04/ modern-barn-house-sh/

on the basis of this good practice at the right hand side, we see similarities between the barn in question and the barn in this farm house. The staircase at the back of the building is suggested to be retained. The new steel handrail can be installed for it. Also new flush windows can be added on the roof with a good proportion that fits into the overall shape of the barn Example of good practice of farm building conservation (Douglas, J. 2006. pg 163)

New glazing doors are installed to allow more sun light

All the other doors and windows are retained and remained with the existing specification, minimum intervention has been obtained by adding window flushes for lighting the loft. also the new glazed doors are reversible to the original and can be justified because of the lack of lighting in the nearby rooms.

Inside view of mezzanine corridor with new flush lights, which allows enough lighting into the building. also the use of glazing handrail will cause reflection of the light for the ground floor

Conclusion The adaptation of the barn inevitably will result in loss of some part because of the poor quality of some fabrics or design. James Douglas (2006) states in his books an statement of English Heritage on May 1993 that conservation of a farm house can potentially cause “destroy of the original fabric by making new opening and moving and replacing structural elements such as timber frames. disrupt walls and roofs with new doors and windows. Block interior spaces with inserted floor and partition walls...� However, aim of this study was to retain the existing quality. My preferred solution is the office, The light problem as I mentioned above can almost solved by adding a bigger new window flushes at both south and north od the building to allow more light into the building. which I believe there shouldn't be any objection by British Heritage as they have allowed even more intervention when required. Also for the west side of the building, where the light cannot reach from the loft to the ground floor, use of partition wall can be suggested because of the height limits of it.

Circulation pattern

Through exploring ordsall hall for the first time, it was a rather strange discovery in a sense that the circulation felt incomplete. Through entering the building at the existing entrance, you are able to instantly progress onto the first floor however make no advancements into the east wing unless you descend the stairwell once again. As we experienced, unless told, there are no obvious pathways that connect the great hall to the east wing. Placing the entrance on entrance option 5 therefore will introduce visitors through the east wing, progress into the great chamber down to the star chamber, and into the great hall. Instead of traveling back and forth through the great hall to appreciate opposite ends of the building.

7.Macclesfield cricket club Software used: Autodesk revit 2011 + Google Skecthup

This part of portfolio was a live project assignment for the student to come up with a new development for the Macclesfield cricket club. This project has been done by different multidisciplary team and I was the only designer within my team, therefore alll the designs are undertaken by me. This project enabled students to deal with a real client and a real scenario.

Macclesfield cricket club has the intention to develop facilities in an existing land for bowling, cricket club and if possible hockey and other sports. The principal demand of the client is to provide a facility to enhance the current situation of the club and community involvement. The exiting land is located in a conservation area, surrounded by Victorian houses with timer framed roof. The client is also prefers the traditional appearance of cricket club houses and its surrounding buildings. However this document only shows the design approach of me to the site and its surroundings and the final approach might be different. Other criteria that would affect the design of this projects are: • The need of connection and linkage with its neighborhood and possibly local school for after school activities. • Provision for spectators with consideration of the sun orientation • Adopting a preventative design measure by complying the secured by design scheme to avoid future damage to the building • Apparently, bowling players and cricket players prefer to have a separate buildings and if possible separate access •The current trees are preserved by the local authority and removing them need a reasonable excuse • The North west land of the site is recognized as open land and should be conserved, it means nothing can be built on that land.

DESIGN AND SHAPE ISSUES AND CONSTRAINTS The shape of building can largely determined by shape of its surrounding buildings. study of urban grain and site plans give us some lines that city and existing buildings are following, these lines are determining the position of each building in urban area. However, in this instance there are other factors such as pitch shape and sun orientation that have impact on the shape of prospective building. The below illustration shows the sun orientation which helps to determine the best location for spectators. it has been said by the client that the existing position of the changing rooms has the best view angle to the cricket pitch. In terms of access, the


entrance of the land is located at the victoria road and existing club house users must travel from there to the south of the land. It is determined by the team to move the entrance to behind the existing score board in order to extend the size of existing car park. In addition to that, an extra car park should be allocated near the club house for disables and preferably behind the buildings and somewhere that does not obstruct the vision of the spectators. (At the moments some cars are parking at front of the existing club house which cause an eyesore view of the building) it has been suggested by the team to provide a separate parking for staff (we thought that the existing car park at sought west of the site can be allocated to the staffs) A solution will be adopted for the appearance of the existing car park at north east of the site such as wall panels.

BUILDING’S POSITION ADJUSTMENT The position of the clubhouse is very important in terms of serving its function. we have identified 5 different sites in the land that the new club house can be built. SITE 1 - This site is located at the north west of the pitch as you can see in the above illustration. it allows sun light in its seating area but it may also obstruct the view of spectators

to the pitch. it means choosing this s i t e s requires to allocate accommodation at the south of the pitch for the spectators and players changing room. this site has also a good access to victoria road which can improve its connection with the community. Site 2- This is where the existing club house is located. Disadvantages of this site is that it is too small for the clubhouse and there is a lack of space for nearby car park. However, this site has the best view angle to the cricket pitch. SITE 3 AND 4 - Advantages of this site is that it can be accessed from south apart of north. it is quite big for accommodating different facilities. Indoor sports hall can be situated either in site 3 or 4. It has been suggested by the team to use this big land (site 3 and 4) and Site 2 still can be used for the spectators seating area or parking area.

An integrated sustainabledesign design for Joule house 8. An integrated sustainable package / Retrofiting Introduction: Joule House is a listed two Victorian

Orientation: The building is not benefiting from south sun light since it is oriented north and west and most of the windows are facing the North, however it enables the potential to use the South and east elevation of the building for solar panels. The south of the building is not also serving the aesthetic quality of the building and Salford university may be able to get permission from the local authority to do external insulation on the those elevation.

end terrace house, belonged to the famous scientist James Joule whose name is used for the standard unit of energy. His house now is used by university of Salford as an office for university’s energy centre.(BBC News, 2011). This document is proposing an integrated sustainable design solution for the Joule house to increase the quality of the building for next decades and decrease the energy consumption of it to meet the Climate change act (2008) requirements.

Occupants: The bu ilding is for office us e and it means many people would be us ing the building, the refore it would be difficult to change the user’s behavior. Location and Trans port: The building is located near a ma road and has a close jor walking distance fro m the public bus transport systems. There are few shop s near the centre, als the university’s faciliti o es can be offered to the staffs since the building is in the reg ion of Salford unive rsity. Structure: A Victor ian building is made of solid walls with a thickness of less tha n 220 mm. the floor is a sustained timbe floor for which fresh r air required to maint ain the timbers. The pitch roof and cold bridging that occurs ne ar some of the major the windows are sources of cold we ther to the inside. If insulation is used big good amount of money ca n be saved annuall y.

Climate change act (2008) commits the UK by 34% reduction of carbon emission of the buildings by 2020 and 80% by 2050. BREEAM award is a world leading design and assessment method for designing sustainable houses. It sets criteria and standards to guide the designers to Technical systems required to upgrade the building can be divided into the following groups:

obtain a low energy house with high functionality for its users. BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment is an assessment criteria that includes a holistic range of environmental issues that are required to be considered for an integrated package: Energy, Health and Wellbeing,Water, Waste, Materials, Management, Pollution,


EXTERNAL WALLS Since the building is a listed one building and the outside look of the building should be retained, The use of internal insulation would be a good solution. However it would cause disturbance for the user of the building. In this kind of building where there is a plater skimming and skirting boards, such as Joule house, everything can be replicated again after insulation is added, however consent may be required from the local authority to undertake any improvement to the wall. (English heritage, Insulating solid walls) The U-value of an uninsulated solid wall is about 2.10 W/m2K but can be decreased up to 0.42 W/m2K. There are two type of insulation to be used for the internal of existing wall, one is a laminated system and the other one is with studwork. This insulation saves around £500 per year and cost around £5500 to £8400





Interior insulation

3 layers of Spacethorn only uses 20mm of space which means it is too thin and decreases the Uvalue to 0.35 W/m2K

FLOOR Preferred insulation for the gaps between the joists is a fibrous insulating such as Thermofleece which has an advantage in comparison to rigid insulation boards as it hold the joists against possible movements. This in addition to a breather membrane and a fully sealed boarding or any other finishes can stop the cold wether to penetrate into the ground floor. However it is suggested to use the basement and insulate the basement. Known as basement loft. if that is the case intermediate floors do not require insulation. Kooltherm K18 plasterboard

ECOLOGY Because the building south face is positioned at the rear of the building and it is not in use. There is good potential for installation of renewable energies such as solar systems. Solar panels and solar water heating both can be installed on the south face of the roof, however since the building is listed, planning permission is required from the local authority. using this

A high efficient A rating combined boiler may be replaced with the existing boiler. The advantages of this into the previous old boiler is that it saved up to £300 per year. Depends on the type of existing one and the radiator. It is proved that gas boilers have less CO2 emission in comparison to other types. Since, the users of an office wouldn’t use as much water as a users of domestic house, this system could be a good option Automatic tap with as it doesn’t store any hot water and it infrared water control brings the water to boiler as it gets

Instead of combined boiler, a micro combined heat and power can be used, it can be considered as an ecological system since it generates electricity while supplying hot water and heating.

DRAUGHT Simple draught for doors and window Pilkington Specia is a solution for the glazing of historical where needed can save numerous buildings, one of the main features of this glass is that it gives the performance of a double glazed window at the amount of heat loss. full draught proofing can save up to £60 per year thickness of a single glazed window. (Pilkington website) WINDOWS If permission is not awarded to improve the existing windows with sealant and pikington specia, and where possible to the window profile. Then using a secondary window would be a solution since there is enough space on the window sill houses for an extra window to be installed.

ROOF When insulating the loft, we need to make sure ventilation is considered as it is required for the joists and timbers. Since the loft is not habitable, it is not required to insulate the roof at the rafter level, rather insulating at ceiling level will be enough. 150 mm insulation between the joists can decrease the u-value up to 0.12 W/m2K Ventilation is required for the loft and in case of any tank, it is suggested to not use any insulation under the tank to avoid the content to get frizzed.
