Saurus Residence Project Details: Date: Summer 2018 Type: Third year Architecture Technology Contributor: Lia Mattos, Giovanna Mendes, Renata Shamsutdinova & Ekaterina Timakova. Project Description: The Saurus Residence, located at 261 Queen’s Quay East, near the Waterfront, was designed to become a connection between the dynamic life in the city and the natural environment. The overall orientation of the building provides a visually rich observation of Lake Ontario and Toronto's skyline. The innovative approach and careful proportion of the white metal curved elements on the exterior add sustainable attributes to the neighborhood. These curved elements optimize the performance of the building by creating shadows and preventing building from the overheat. Green gardens and vegetative patios bring nature into the building. The design solution was inspired by the appearance of the stegosaurus, a spice of the dinosaur inhabited Canadian lands. Its back had two rows of curved exposed bones that acted as a thermoregulators and protection from predators.

Gianni’s Happy House Project Details: Date: Winter 2017 Type: First year Architecture Technology Contributor: Giovanna Mendes and Ron Nguyen. Project Description: This project is the result of an elaborate work with my colleague Ron Nguyen during my second semester at George Brown College. This house is a 3-storey custom house based on wood framing members and different materials for the facade, interior, floor, etc. The focus was on understand the various levels on the site and on designing the room layout to the client’s desire. The project was divided in 3 stages: site analysis-research, design process and presentation. The first stage was understanding and finding more information about the site. This process consisted of a digital map analysis and photographic recording of the area. The second stage involved more critical thinking of personal and functional aspects of the design. Third stage was presentation which was an overall conclusion of the concept. The proposed design was also modeled to scale as well as presented in front of the entire class and Studio Professor.

Charrette House Project Details: Date: Winter 2017 Type: First year Architecture Technology Contributor: Jessica Bouchard, Chelsea Carcone, Giovanna Mendes, Ron Nguyen, Iphigenia Pheakos, Brandon Shields and Natalie Trojan. Project Description: This is a proposed design for the main floor of a client's house. It was designed by interior designers and architectural technologies following certain requirements per criteria and requirements. The project manager was my professor and he chose a few students from my year to participate in this unique opportunity. It was one of the biggest accomplishment for me because it was an honour to be selected and get the chance to work with dedicated and hard worker fellow students. Through this experience I expanded my knowledge of interior design by considering the client's use and expectations and got the opportunity to work with students from different fields to put together a cohesive and collaborative final presentation.

Mixed Use Residential-Commercial Building Project Details: Date: Fall 2017 Type: Second year Architecture Technology Contributor: Grace Kim, Giovanna Mendes, Ron Nguyen,and Jimmy Su. Project Description: This is a 4-storey building which incorporates an underground level for parking and storage, a ground floor level for commercial use and upper floor levels designated for residential. It was primarily a wood framed structure with a combination of different materials for the exterior faรงade and interior spaces. This project was very challenging due to the scope of work that was required within the demanding deadline. The purpose of this project was to challenge us as colleagues, putting in practice our knowledge and our ability to solve certain problems related to this building. I learned how to work under pressure with different points of view and the importance of thinking twice before taking a decision.

Dog's Rescue Project Details: Date: Fall 2017 Type: Second year Architecture Technology Contributor: Giovanna Mendes. Project Description: The Dog’s Rescue is a visionary 700 square feet, one-story building project located northwest of Tollkeepers’ Cottage in Toronto. The facility has a lodging capacity for 9 dogs. The materials and concepts used allow this building to minimize its energy and water use by using clerestory windows, solar panels, rain water leaders, a trough collector, trombe wall, hydronic radiant floor, operable triple glazed windows and different sustainable materials. The main idea of this building was to incorporate people to nature without compromising the environment. The building design seeks to embrace the unique site conditions and uses its passive opportunities to achieve its goal of net-zero energy and waterwise use.

Pag.36 22 2


Materials Used Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFS) used to avoid direct contact to the soil and also to maintain the heat from the floor. Wood siding walls except south wall (requires little maintenance, it will last 30 to 50 years and it can be recycled). Wood grain concrete pavers (made with recycled crushed aggregate from reuse and recycled construction waste). Rubber finish floor (made of recycled materials and it is ideal for dogs). Rewall @ essentialboard (int. wallboard for abuse and moisture made of 100% recycled beverage cartons, cups and their components). Wood cheps columns (used for gazebo). recycled shingles (made of wood, plastic and rubber used for gazebo). Furniture made of wood certified by the forest stewardship council (FSC).

WAREHOUSE Project Details: Date: Winter 2018 Type: Second year Architecture Technology Contributor: Giovanna Mendes & Ron Nyugen. Project Description: The warehouse is a single-storey building with an area of 6,892 m3. The warehouse was design to incorporate office areas within the main structure that served the daily functions of the sales, managerial and costumer service staff. This building used steel as the main material for its framing structure. The challenge of this project was to produced quality results in a compressed period of time. This project was the result of hard and collaborative work between my colleague Ron Nyugen and myself in which I learned the diversity of steel construction and its connections while putting in practice our knowledge in a new software (Revit).

The Toronto Waterfront Interpretion Center Project Details: Date: Winter 2018 Type: Second year Architecture Technology Contributor: Giovanna Mendes & Ron Nguyen Project Description: The Toronto Waterfront Interpretive Center is a two storeis multiuse building made of steel frame system as its primary structure. This project integrates sustainable components learned in previous semeters. I worked in a team within a simulated architectural office environment to create and present conceptual design documents to applicable regulations and current industry standars. In order to develop this building we examined and applied architectural theory and design principles through analysis and diagramming. It also applied related architectural technology, specifications and document coordination throughout the design and documentation phases. This building was designed based on an exhibition concept with residential spaces for students located at the second floor, including a caffeteria on the same floor. The classrooms are located at the front of the main entrance, right next to the office on the first floor. The exhibitionarea is located at the east side of the building with a tall ceiling allowing more space for creative sculptures. The inspiration for this Center was “Time� because it may be considered infinite, but in today’s world, it may seem like time is running out. The time to finish a project, the time to make a life choice, and the time we have left on this planet. The current generation has a big role on conserving the planet. The effects of climate change are quickly approaching and the amount of time to reverse these effects is limited. The reason behind this building is to add purpose to Tommy Thompson Park including restoring the natural features and bringing a community together, all while preserving the nature. Providing a centre for young children to learn the history and importance of sustainabilty. Getting closer to nature and observing first hand, if we do not take care of the planet, things we are able to see now will no longer be here in the future.

AIR POLLUTION “Self cleaning concrete” reduces general air pollution and keeps its natural colour for far longer than traditional buildings materials. The process of cleaning occurs when the pollutants strike the surface, reacting with the titanium dioxide through “photocatalysis” method which uses the sun’s energy to break down the pollutants. SOLAR EXPOSURE Building orientated to optimize solar LANDSCAPING Native plants make healthly ecosystem in Tommy Thompson Park. ENERGY REDUCTION High performance envelope construction reduces energy usage. GRASSCRETE Open patterns allowing grass or other water drainage reducing the concrete usage. ENERGY REDUCTION deed, the heat minimizes energy usage.

Kitchen Renovation Project Details: Date: Fall 2017 Type: Proffesional Contributor: Giovanna Mendes. Project Description: I had the honour to work with Heidy Valero who was my mentor at Vale's Kitchen, designing and managing the processes involved in a custom and residential renovation. I worked hard to learn a new program (2020 Design) in which I created this project. After being involved in many kitchen renovation projects I am certified to design complex kitchens. This kitchen was a challenge for me because it was my first solo project in which I had to be in charge of every phase that takes place during a kitchen renovation from the first meeting with the client to managing all the installation process and final touches.
