Residential Design With my knowledge in landscape Architecture I produced these two projects with the clients wishes and wants in mind. I incorporated what I have learned in school and working in the field to establish elegant oasis at their homes. With relaxation and activity and mind, I created locations within the design to coexist with one another. Small pockets of relaxation to get away from daily tasks allows the clients to wind down and enjoy their home oasis. Larger were also incorporated to allow for activities to take place and hold larger gatherings.

Residential Installation

Designer: Charlie Molberg Foreman: Junior Alvarez; Lead Hand: Tristen Erickson

Throughout this three month project I placed orders for materials and assured they arrived according to our schedule time line. I lined up subcontractors to finish their portion of work to sequence with our schedule. I assisted in reviewing plans with laborers making sure they were aware of what their assignments were. I also assited the site foreman with setting up job site needs and goals.

Crooks Community Development Throughout my internship with the City of Crooks, our main focus was to develop a community plaza that would accommodate the residents and future growth of the city. Our main goals for the plaza was to create outdoor rooms that could be used for large gatherings such as party's and festivals. The area of interest was blocked by a small stream that ran through the city. To improve access the space, two bridges were installed, and designed to accommodate the design goals for the project.

Nicks Hamburger Ship was an exterior open space that was underutilized and needed to be improved to better serve the community. with my concept, I enhanced the overall functionality of how the space is utilized. I used cement slabs to create an illusion allowing the space to feel wider. I also used native plants material to ensure minimal maintenance. Also, turf was proposed to minimize maintenance. Industrial grade furniture to increase vitality of the park.
