Treetop Townhouse This neighbourhood consists of ten units sharing one single module floor plan, situated in a forested area. The modules weave along the trees, leaving nature undisturbed while the elevated pathway allows the residents to enjoy living amongst the treetops. This pathway provides a mini courtyard of trees for enjoyment above and under the pathway. Cambridge, Ontario Academic project, 2017 In collaboration with Colin Williams, Ericson Ho, Nidi Met

A Maker’s Space This is a dedicated living and working space accommodated for any individual studio artist. It is an adaptable environment achieved through rotating walls that opens or separates space. The artist is able to create the areas they work in and change it according to the program and time.

Transcend This project focused on capturing the atmosphere within the designed space and the experience of the visitor as they arrive, travel through, and exit the landscape. The design of this heterotopic city, was driven by the journey through light, compression and expansion of space and the change in tempo of ones movements. The programs used for this project were Rhino, Grasshopper, Adobe Creative Suites, and Maxwell.

ARRIVAL ARRIVAL

Arrival is a place of wanderers, with pockets of intimacy. In this city, one finds comfort in isolation. The spaces that exist as part of the city remain embedded within an ambiguous landscape.

Spin Pavillion Situated near the north coast of San Francisco, California; The spin pavilion is a dynamic space for assembly in a culturally diverse city. It provides shaded areas and benches as well as bicycle racks embedded in the exterior for pedestrians, cyclists and tourists, allowing visitors to rest while enjoying the views of the golden gate bridge. The pavilion supports the city’s efforts of bringing together the growing number of cyclists from the San Francisco bay trail that runs past it.

A Microinstitution A place to gather amongst the surrounding community, a library is more than a place for books. This microinstitution connects the people of Toronto’s neighbourhood through the circulation within the library. The glass bridges link different programs as well as provide visibility from the exterior. This building creates a cultural hub that is reflective of Toronto’s community, providing a service with a space that compliments programs of education, entertainment, and growth.
