Emily G. Scali

PORTFOLIO architecture + design


DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Design is a reaction to problems. The solutions may be large or small, elaborate or modest, expensive or cheap. Nonetheless, successful problem solving requires careful observation, collaboration, and continuous experimentation. As many of our contemporary problems stem from the urbane, my work focuses on urban and sustainable projects. I believe that resilience prompts sustainability and that good design should be accessible to and experienced by everyone. The following collection of work displays a set of solutions that are holistic, site-specific, and strive to manifest playful, elegant, and enduring results.

This passive house combines several spiral forms to maximize mountain views, natural light, and flow. Sited on a planned permaculture farm in Hamilton, MT, the house is earth-bermed on the north side and incorporates passive solar on the south, along with using local materials and earthworks to retain rainwater on site.

bikestro set

independent project, 2013 For the bicycle enthusiast, this furniture set explores the adaptability of old steel bike parts, creating a functional, recycled place to sit and have a snack after that long ride.


blackhawk drive residence project with Barnett Architecture, 2012


This extensive remodeling project transformed a 1940’s house into a contemporary urban retreat.

BEFORE

AFTER

BEFORE

AFTER

Major changes included: • An open floor plan with larger, more functional kitchen and living spaces. • An entry vestibule to add visual hierarchy to the North Elevation while creating a space for transition into the home. • Cement board siding to replace old cedar siding. • Awning & casement windows throughout. • A new concrete retaining wall & stair to enclose the drive and lead to the home’s entry.


the constellation facade project with Bark Design, 2012

This new mixed-use redevelopment project required 3D modeling, rendering, and design assistance on elements of the facade. Small suggestions were made to improve the exterior massing and detailing of the original design. The final built structure incorporates many of these larger changes and aesthetic proposals.

ASSEMBLY:

USE:

• used for cooking demonstrations by reputable chefs during a 3 day long food & wine expo


family tree apartments project with Tonkin Architecture, 2014

Ten multi-family buildings, holding over 250 units of affordable housing were completely renovated in this extensive project. Interior and exterior renovation work included replacing fixtures, site modifications, and new paint and finishes inside and out. I specifically assisted with new color patterns for the building exteriors, and construction administration tasks including punch lists and regular communication with contractors.


MOVE

project with Seattle Design Festival, 2014

Created as a gateway to the 2014 Seattle Design Festival, this interactive installation turned passive festival-goers into collaborative artists. Five foot constructed block letters asked passerbys to leave their mark by wrapping colored tape around the wood and mirror structure. By the end of the weekend, only a day-glo ball remained, leaving a visual record of the festival happenings, and also the collective impact of hundreds of individual decisions to move. The message? Change is made possibly only through movement.


outhouse

project with Madison Area Permaculture Guild, 2013 Differing from a traditional outhouse, the composting toilet functions like a conventional flush toilet, but uses no water and recycles nutrients, saving water and reducing bills. Sited on the Madison Permaculture Guild’s common property, the structure can be easily disassembled and moved. Built primarily of recycled materials, the design-build execution provided basic carpentry experience for several volunteers in the guild.

Salvaged metal roofing = $0 Lumber and posts = $150 Reclaimed shutters = $30 Re-used wood siding = $0 Hardware = $20

Total Materials Cost = $200


re-use-ful garage independent project, 2013

6' Setb ack

The owner of this site was tired of the small, ineffective, dilapidated garage that existed. Aside from no storage, an impractical use of space, and the poor condition of the structure, the garage was oddly placed in relationship to the house, and required a long paved driveway to access it.

This project involved designing, locating, and implementing graphic maps, mile marker signs, and informational kiosk structures for a new 12 mile bike trail located in Decorah, Iowa. The design and implementation involved close collaboration with city officials, landowners, and community members. The paved trail is used as both a commuter trail through the town, and a recreational loop for cyclists, walkers, and cross country skiiers. Wrapping around the town, through switchbacks and hills, and in close proximity to miles of mountain bike trails in the town’s bluffs, the beautiful scenery is marked by local artwork, cuts through sandstone, various footbridges, and miles of farm vistas.
