Viennese Coffeehouse atmospheric collage


urban hybrid the helix

site: Tigerpark, Josefstadt, vienna, austria program viennese coffee house, gallery, study rooms,media rooms, reading rooms, plaza and preforming area.

concept the idea of this project was to design an urban hybrid that related to it’s site. the site that was given in Tigerpark, Josefstadt,Vienna Austria. Tigerpark is located on a street axis that connects Ringstrasse from the east and Vienna’s suburbs from the west. The location is characterized with its rich surrounding community and apartments complexes . Also, an elementary school is nearby as well as a students’ housing. The hybrid is designed as a mixed used building where it is the heart of its neighborhood. The place where students and the surrounding community can gather and share their ideas ,thoughts and spend valuable time at the coffee house , plaza, and the mixed-used rooms.the design was based on the street grid axis which extended the street into the building and formed the helix as the main circulation of the building that creates vertical density as the functions are spiraling around the void core to lead up to the coffee house which is the most hierarchal space in the building while looking at Vienna’s history gallery.

synthesizing form and place The task was to find a remote street intersection away from urban areas in Texas defined by the Jefferson Grid. The concepts of aggregation should interact with their site. To extend formal ideas to the phenomenon of place, final proposals should proved an atmosphere to understand the design to be part of the existing context.

spatial clusters


everything is an addition of different parts. In architecture, the idea of modules defines buildings. For instance, materials come in certain pre-defined sizes as well as furniture. This understanding of variety of agglomeration concepts. The addition and repetition of same or different pieces reduces the complexity of assembling structures.

The program includes main gallery,offices,classrooms,and backstage. The main concept is that the two side buildings will parametrically contain the main hierarchal space which is the historic theatre. Each shaft penetrate light in a different way as well form a different space from the other, which makes the whole gallery experience unforgettable.

conceptual design House of Asterion

The idea behind this project was first to design a 2D conceptual idea of the short story “The House of Asterion by Jorge Luis Borges� , and then transform it into 3D model which turned to urban living. The House of Asterion has no doors, no locks and not a piece of furniture for a half man half bull. It has many corridors and rooms, pools and courtyards. The conceptual design tried to apply those descriptions in the story.
