hello

I was always fascinated by my surroundings- the architecture, the nature, the long paths in the forest leading to the unknown. Even the mundane would trigger a need to explore and wander. I felt that these overlooked parts were designed for a reason. Not many would understand or develop on that reason, but those who did would likely appreciate it. My interest in design and architecture came at a young age. My father is an architect, and I would spend countless Saturday mornings watching him sketch drawings of buildings on his drafting table, sweeping away eraser marks and pencil shavings with his giant horsehair drafting brush. Back then I didn’t understand that these drawings could equate to an actual building. To realize that an imagined design can become a tangible thing was a moment of insight. What a magical way to make a living. I spent many years in Guelph, where I studied at the University. For me, this was a time of learning. Learning my own passions, realizing my own dreams, becoming the person I wanted to become. While I was there I lived on a beautiful, old street, lined with enormous century homes. My own apartment was inside a converted mansion built in 1876. From here I was able to really appreciate each nook and detail of the space- the thirteen foot ceilings, the original crown mouldings and doorframes, the balcony and the windows. This neighbourhood helped to solidify my appreciation for architecture and my apartment helped to cater to my passion of quality interior spaces. I knew then that I wanted nothing more than to have a career in a field where I would be surrounded by wondrous, thoughtful, delicately designed spaces. I decided to enroll in a program that would help me to develop new skills to match what I was passionate about. Through my three years as a student at George Brown College, School of Architecture Studies, in the field of Interior Design Technology, I maintained a high average grade point while balancing full time work as a Manager at a Restaurant. The full commitment and dedication to both institutions allowed me to develop exceptional multi-tasking skills, delegation skills, and has allowed me to push myself, while still maintaining the energy and motivation to look for ways to improve. I am grateful for all of these opportunities that I have experienced. I am thrilled and excited to move on to a new chapter in my life, and I am proud of where my roots have brought me.

thread & fern

youth art studio and transitional residences TORONTO

community centre

THREAD & FERN Youth Art Studio and Transitional Residences is located at the iconic Bathurst and Bloor intersection in downtown Toronto. The centre will be housed on the main floor of a six-storey new build, spanning a total of 15,511 SF. As a reference to the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda, with this design, we will promote inclusivity, quality education, sustainable economic growth and employment, safety, resilience, sustainability, an justice for all. The space will be allocated to ensure that these goals are met, and will include a restaurant, an arts studio and workshop, a gallery and store, and most importantly, a shelter with living quarters with learning rooms, and a goal to promote confidence and new growth for a better future. 8


THREAD: symbolizes the experience of beginning a-new. This centre will aim to promote inclusivity and new growth, and guidance to a better future. FERN: symbolizes sincerity, confidence, and shelter. This centre will aim to promote confidence, through sincere guidance in the form of shelter and services.

thread TO THREAD: to weave, to pass, to combine, to ground, and to build upon a single thin line to create a continous strand- a structure. Threads form a distinct identity, combining piece by piece to create a familiar shape- a rug, a pillowcase, a blanket. Thread evokes a sense of homecoming and rest. Layered threads foster an impression of habitation, of lived-in warmth, and of security. The design considerations for THREAD & FERN will play on the identity of threads. Threads evoke a sense of nostalgia, and warmth, and lived-in character by incorporating layers of textured fabrics to create a bazaar-like setting with natural walls of concrete and brick. A white backdrop will be presented in the floor of floors, ceilings, and walls, and patterns and textures will focus on the old, and the lived-in.

OFS headquarters TORONTO

commercial/office design

The goal for the new Global Headquarters of furniture brand OFS is to create a space that would balance between modern but will hold a strong focus on the brand’s historic roots, by implimenting the philosophy of quality craftsmanship and sustainability throughout the office space. To achieve this ideal, the design will address the client’s desires for spaces that offer open collaboration in the means of breakout rooms and huddle spaces.

collaborate Collaboration will play a vital role in the space. In order to create this type of an experience, the design will focus on combining the old and the new, where “old” will be built with a sense of strength, through quality craftsmanship which will be found in the form of wood weaving elements, and ageless materials such as concrete flooring and exposed brick, painted white. The “new” will emerge from the use of the materials in the space, which will also allow the design to showcase the small details through a whimsical perspective- the wood weaved panelling above the workspaces, the bright pops of brand pink-orange, all against a clean, neutral backdrop.

nereida

and the small sea TORONTO

restaurant design

Nereida is a project that came together as a rejuvination of a space in the downtown core of Toronto. Located at one of the busiest intersections of the city, this address will be transformed into a space that will execute a fine dining experience, while also catering to a busy corporate lunch crowd through the adjoining coffee shop, named “The Small Sea�.

the moody sea This design will be inspired by the combative relationship between a mischievous, wicked sea nymph (Nereida), and a sailor who is lost at sea. The design is centered around elements of a stormy sea, which are amplified in the use of dark-teal blue velvet materials. For additional layers, a large, weathered, water-marked mirror as an accent wall will be installed behind the bar, and black framed glass enclosures will create nooks for dining. The design will also incorporate deep grey and rust-coloured velvet seating and custom banquettes. Terrazzo flooring with a mosaic design in the bar will tie in a creative element, and warm hardwood flooring will tie the space together.

the small sea The Small Sea is a coffee shop and greek bakery connected to the south western point of 100 University Ave. It is designed as an extension of Nereida but the design will focus on a serene atmosphere, and will emulate the “calm after the storm�. The colours will be of a scheme of white, grey, and blue marble accents.

clement lake cottage THORNBURY

residential

This residential project is tucked away in a quiet town in Northern Ontario. The design is inspired by the family’s Scandinavian roots, and will be dedicated to withstand every season of North Ontario weather.

rya Rya is the term for the “Scandinavian rug”, which is a common thread in many households in Finland. The rya represents tradition, family relations, and warmth in cold weather. The design of the rya offers a sense of warmth which will be emulated in the warm wood flooring and creamy textures and materials used throughout the space. The clean, scandinavian design within the space will be softened by the aesthetic of the family’s own rya rug, which will be mounted in the space.

lee reimagined TORONTO

restaurant design

This design is a reimagination of an established restaurant situated in downtown Toronto, in the heart of the Entertainment District. The restaurant has been my second home for the three years that I spend finishing my education, and I have grown very much accustomed to the interior space of it. This project was a personal one for me, and it allowed me to expand on an interior space that was timeless, elegant, and a little bit quirky.

peruvian tassel This space will be transfored through a fresh, new perspective-with the influence alluding to a Peruvian tassel. Brightly coloured and rich in history and cultral significance, the Peruvian tassel will play a vital role in the space. The focus for this space is to combine pops of vibrancy with fuchsia, teal, and yellow colours in the form of fabrics and paint, with the mystical elemtent of old world charm, through the use of exposed brick, warm wood, gold plated paneling, and concrete. To further develop the space, the use of distinct black marble with orange veining was introduced as a focal point, and will help to ground the entire design while also adding to a sense of intended moodiness for the space.
