CONTAINER HOUSE

CAJA, the spanish word for box inspired the design for this container house. This project which was conceived in three days, uses parametric design on the deck shading system which filters light. The hallway on the second floor was also an exploration of how casting shadows can add visual interest to a space. The stair case is encased in glass so it may also bring alot light into the space. Materials were kept to a minimum of three which are stainless steel, wood panels, and concrete.

URBAN OASIS GREEN PARK

URBAN OASIS is designed on a site which would best be described as a fish bowl since it is caught between three major roadways which are the B.Q.E., Sands Street, and the Manhattan Bridge. The design was inspired by the site’s topography. Keeping the theme of not altering the site in a major way, the design aimed to work with the land and its unique features. The bike path which runs directly through the site was preserved for its significance to pedestrians as an access to the Manhattan bridge. Issues with noise generated by the major roadways was tackled with the use of tress and sound barriers around the perimeter of the park. This also serves to make the park more detached from the urban environment and act as an escape. Urban oasis also features a nature path which gives the feeling of being in a jungle as light filters down fro the top tier of the park.


URBAN OASIS MODEL Urban Oasis’s model showcases the unique shape of the site and its influence on the overall design. The model also shows the emphasis on nature by highlighting the areas where plants and trees will be located.

PENETRATION

Research was done on how to represent the word penetration visually. My representation was to show the piercing of an object and to exaggerate the point by making each penetration appear to bleed.

GRAND ARMY PLA APARTMENT

My client has purchased an apartment on Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. He is not happy with the current state of the apartment since, it does not reflect his personal style and certain requirements needed by him. My client is a bachelor who, needs a space where he can entertain his guest and another where he can be productive when he sees fit. My client loves pool, nature, and the Caribbean which served as an inspiration for the color palette in certain rooms. He also likes clean lines and hopes to further himself through his passion of music.

CONCEPT MODEL

The concept model represents t my clients needs in a visual way serves to be a guide for the dire of the final design.
