GILES HALL portfolio of architecture


a collection of my work


Giles raised the bar for interns in the office. He acted in a professional manner throughout. The quality of his work was exemplary, and supplemented with insightful discussions of design and human experience that contributed to the evolution of our Nanjing Eco Island Exhibition Center project. Giles took charge of his assigned task and executed it with a maturity that is quite refreshing for someone new to the profession. After having learned Revit his first week at the office, Giles was more than willing to share what he learned with others. In addition, we tasked Giles to try to learn things in Revit no one in the office had done, to help us evolve our workflow. As a result, we were able to streamline the process of generating essential diagrams (exploded axonometric circulation, color plan & area diagrams), limit the number of software platforms we use, as well as be more efficient and graphically precise in our work.

An architectural object could likewise be something new‌ and if intended to promote a new function, it could contain in its form indications for the ‘decoding’ of this function. It too would be playing upon elements of pre-existing codes, but rather than evoking and negating the codes, as the work of art might, and thus directing attention ultimately to itself, it would have to progressively transform them, progressively deforming already known forms and functions. Umberto Eco

nanjing eco-technology island

- exhibition center

NBBJ Architecture

Taking cues from the landscape of Singapore, we created a dynamic roofscape of peaks and valleys. This roof serves not only to denote the civic function of the building, but also to control how light penetrates the building. I worked in Revit and Illustrator, with a team of two other architects to develop this building in its second phase of schematic design. In collaboration with a fellow intern, I built the physical model whose roof is made of acrylic to facilitate lighting studies.

public space and private dwelling University of Waterloo

An essay on the strata that exist in an urban setting which help to arbitrate between private and common ownership. Working iteratively, I explore ways to maintain individual identity within an urban setting. Mediating between the human scale and the scale of this building, a series of courtyards both at the public ground floor and the semiprivate floors above create distinct addresses within the large mass of this building.

residence for an artist University of Waterloo The house is anchored by a corridor at its center. In this space the occupant experiences the vertical scale of the space. From this corridor a variety of spaces unfold; the kitchen, the bedroom, the lounge, the studio. The kitchen and lounge are connected directly and act as the main living space during the day. Here the experience is extroverted and horizontal, emphasising views to the meadow and the lake beyond.

urban zoo

- architecture and landscape

University of Waterloo

This project examines the relationship between architecture and landscape. The path and wall transition between park and zoo seamlessly, creating a blurred sense of enclosure. The experience in these spaces are transient and constantly changing. The role of the architecture is to focus the experience and to direct the visitor towards a specific moment in the landscape -- a clearing in the forest, a point in the center of the lake or a ridge in a meadow.

st. catharines performing arts centre Diamond and Schmitt Architects

On a uniquely situated site, the new St. Catharines Performing Arts Centre will be adjacent to Brock University’s 198 St. Paul Street Facility to form the new performing arts complex. Sharing program space will provide a unified approach between these two distinct facilities, creating opportunities for creative intersections of dramatic, music and visual arts not just spatially but also both intellectually and physically. The new Performing Arts Centre will also feature frontage on the city’s main thoroughfare, St. Paul Street, and is a catalyst in rejuvenating downtown St. Catharines.

grand river park hotel Univeristy of Waterloo

The hotel acts as a link between the city and the courtyard, between the familiar and the unknown. The hotel must appeal to the tourist to stay and see what else lies just off the trail, and to the citizen to be introduced to the inherent beauty of the place. The Hotel is comprised of three visibly distinct elements. The rooms which demand light and an elevated relationship to the city. The spa which is self contained, quiet and calm. The public spaces such as the lobby and restaurant which must be open and inviting to allow for movement and activity.
