International House San Francisco MFA Final Thesis 2013 This project is an International House San Francisco located in South of Market area of San Francisco. This I House San Francisco is a student housing with ideal student interacting areas, retail stores and commercial spaces for public. The project included a thirteen stories building and a parking basement. The building, 680 Folsom, is originally a vacant office building and I resurrect it into my mix-used international housing. The total project area is 400,000 square foot, and I focus on design both residential and commercial area. 4

San Francisco is ranked seventeenth as a student friendly city compared to cities around the world. Students are attracted to San Francisco because of the multicultural diversity and strong desire to learn. Student enrollment in the U.S. is expected to increase from 16.5 million in 2010 to over 18.5 million in 2013. For this large amount of students, the issue of student housing become critical than ever. This project is aim to provide those students who need housing and want to experience the one and only culture impact in their life.

There are numerous of newer loft-style condominiums located in the SoMa area, and extensive rental apartments also. These apartments heve large numbers of student tenants. The living condition is more convenient for people than most other communities in San Francisco because of location, and will become better because of the redevelopment plan at Sixth Street.

LOBBY The lobby can be seen as a station or a transportation hub. The interweaving item relates with transportation reminds me of a transportation network. Therefore, 4the sub-concept 5 for lobby is “trans-6 portation network.” When the users come to my building, they 240' go - 0" through different transportation 24' - 0" 24' - 0" network. For example, International students come by flights; domestic student may come by freeway or

railway. Even the locals may take MUNI or BART to come. Based on the graphic of transportation network, I created an 7 from those lines 8 irregular patterns and hubs on the lobby wall.

This corridor connects the Retail Lobby with the Housing Lobby. In order to connect these two lobbies, I designed an iron frame partition board with some black opaque glasses.

BAKERY CAFE The bakery café is located on the first floor next to the Retail Lobby. The name of the bakery café is ZÜPFE. ZÜPFE, pronounced Zopf is a type of bread that comes from 1 2 of Switzer- 3 the Emmental region land. The name is derived from the shape of the bread, and literally means “braid”. I started to trace the 24' - 0" pattern24'of- 0"the ZÜPFE, and finally created a structure from the floor to the top of the wall then across the ceiling. In order to emphasize

the concept, I chose a herringbone floor for this space. For the atmosphere of this space, I hope to create a cozy and simple 5 feeling. Wood4tone furniture and the green color wall paint work nicely with each other. The bakery is a place that serves students and 24' - 0" - 0" office workers in the24' morning rush and also provide the locals a relaxing afternoon.

Looking at these Folded Book Art pieces, the shape and the crease show how they were folded. It inspired me on the bookshelf and the pathway.

want to make the bookshelves and the ramps interweaving with each other. Two giant bookshelves are also based on the folded book idea. The gap between the ceiling bookshelves and the floor bookshelves can be seen as a shape created by the folded book.

BUFFET The Oasis Buffet is located on the second floor. Besides this dining place there are six retail stores. An Oasis is an isolated area in the desert that provides water and food in the desert. The restaurant is a place for people to gain energy after a long day. Food, energy and nutrition are organic things, so I start to find out an element that is able to interlace with the nature. Finally, I decided to use Voronoi diagram as my concept for this space.

“A Voronoi diagram is created from a set of points by dividing the plane into regions, where each region consists of the area closest to one of the points. To create a fractal, first create 1 a Voronoi

diagram from some points. Next, add more points and create new Voronoi diagrams inside each original Voronoi region and repeat the process recur-

I repeat Voronoi diagram in this space by using different materials and elements. Wood frame ceiling with LED light inside the gap, metal frame wrap the column with glass, mirror wall and wood flooring. The 2 theme for the 3 space creates 4 color neutral atmosphere. The white laminated marble food bar become the oasis of the space.

HOUSEING From the third to the eleventh floors are residential units. I House San Francisco provides five types of housing units. There are three bedrooms, two bedrooms, studios, single rooms with balcony, and single rooms without balcony. Besides the nice living units, I also designed a public living room and a laundry room on each floor. My idea for this public space in residential area comes from a nest. Rather than a complex structure, I used wood boards with curve of the wall to represent the protection and the warmth of a nest.

STUDY ROOM The Study Room area are located on the twelfth floor. I designed the twelfth floor as a student community center. There are also a gym, TV lounge and study rooms in this floor. The concept for my study room was a mind gear. When students study or do research here, their brain is working like a moving gear. Therefore, I created a big ceiling structure to represent the idea about the movement of the gear.

The stair seat is a connection between study room and TV lounge. Students can sit on the stairs reading, chatting or having an informal lecture. Using the adjustable door on the top of the stair seat can isolate the noise from the TV lounge to the reading and lab room.

Ella’s Restaurant Redesign Material Use 2011 Ella’s is famous for their weekend brunch. The owners hope to create a comfortable ambience for guests to “dine-out” as frequently as they might “eat in” at their own homes. It comes to me a picture, waking up late in the morning, seating in the dining room the smell of cooking fill the air, and lighting comes through a window. It is my lazy Sunday morning. Home is my concept. I want to create a space that just like eating in home which is coziness, snug, easy 34

and warm family feel. Guests may like to listening the music, watching televisions, reading a newspaper or chatting with family. What kinds of home style that Ella’s will be: modern, contemporary, or country style? No matter what style it is, Ella’s is always the cozy kitchen at the corner of Presidio and California that give out a smell of freshness food.

601 Brannan Lighting Design Lighting 2012

601 Brannan is a building of Academy of Art University. It is a warehouse converted into education used. There is a huge open space on the first floor. This open space is used for students presentations and lectures. Because it is a open ceiling space, the noise can disturb students on the second floor. 40

This project is to design a lighting fixture to solve the noise problem and to adjust the daylight, in order to create a professional and multifunctional space for students. Funnel is my concept for the lighting fixture. Just like the water go through the funnel, daylight is adjusted by the lighting fixture.

Ohlone Shellmond Cultural Center Sustainable 2011

46

The 5,000 year old Berkeley Shellmond mau havebeen the largest and most densely populated Native American villages (city) in North American, It was certainly the largest of hundreds of shellmounds that once dotted the Bay Area shorelines. The mayor of Berkeley, Tom Bates will entertain ideas and designs that night make up this interpretive culture center. The site, now occupied by the adhoc, Sea Breeze cafe, right off highway 80,

has enourmous potential for public access and is a stones throw away from the actual shellmound historic site, protected from development. The goals for the Cultural Center are basic; give the visitor a brief glance into the Ohlone world hundreds of yesrs ago when the Ohlone (San Francisco) Bay was thought of as one of the most beautiful lands and seas in North America.
