PROBLEM & PROPOSAL
Existing three-storey department store is blocking views for the residential towers and is overshadowing their courtyard. Proposed volume has 4 floors instead of three, but its triangular shape allows more generous offset from residential windows and less shadowing of the courtyard. Main entrances are formed by trimming the corners. New building can function either as a singlebrand store, or rent out floors to individual tenants: each floor plate has an open plan, and all of them are connected with stairs through an atrium. The second floor has an advantage of a roof access. The roof of the tower can be used as an event space.
GLACIER Office 2017, Vancouver, Canada Status: Proposal Duties: Idea, Model, Drafting, Render
The bounds of the volume are defined by the desired FSR of the building, divided into two phases. Each block is using an optimal office floor plate around elongated vertical core. Shape of the blocks is modified so that together they form a unified silhouette. A pattern of solid and transparent pieces strengthens this perception. A raised platform between the towers is accesses via landscape stairs on both ends. Further shearing of the mass partially covers the platform, creating a "glacier grotto", that becomes an urban room in the neighbourhood and activates public life around the project site.

Gallery The new structure for the Woodward’s Atrium is designed as a perfect square with two elevated corners. The elevated side provides a physical separation between the activities that can take place on the “Stage” and flows of visitors in the atrium. It does not enclose the space into a “box” inside the atrium, but it creates necessary level of privacy for the events — the structure can be oriented in different directions, so that it is either completely open to the atrium, or partially closed. The lowest point of the elevated arc is located just below average eye level, which maintains visual connectivity and invites passers-by to join. The surface of the structure is sculpted in a way to create several steps to sit on. The Stage can functionally be separated into 4 modules, which then can be assembled in different combinations and serve as different structures for a wide variety of activities. CNC’d plywood is used as a primary construction material to make the structure tactile, warm and inviting for interaction.

ADJUSTING TO URBAN GUIDELINES
ROOF Department Store 2014, Vladivostok, Russia Status: Idea Duties: Problem, Idea, Model, Diagrams, Render
â€œTsentralnyâ€? shopping center is probably one of the most noticeable historical buildings in old city center. It stands along Svetlanskaya street, where it meets Okeansky prospect, and can be seen from any point of central city square and beyond it. Unfortunately, it is remarkable not for its beauty which is now covered by advertisement posters and damaged by years of careless restoration, but mostly for the glass roof structure. The majority of citizens are rather displeased with its design and the fact that historical building was changed. Nevertheless, that is how city develops. It is constantly merging old and new together. As I did not have a chance to work on this particular object, I came up with my own proposal to show what this coexistence may look like.
Ave. o sp ek t skiy Pr O ke an
The original building was completed in 1903, and since then functioned primarily as a trading house; however, its ownership and name changed several times with regimes in Russia. High-quality images of its original appearance are hard to find, and it is therefore difficult to reconstruct the details. Nevertheless, old design was reckoned in to re-establish original massing, proportions and silhouette, wherever possible. This glass roof appeared approximately in 2005-2006. It hid all original decoration above the cornice. There was an attempt to fix it by reconstructing those details later, but most of them were misplaced, and a few new ones did not even exist before. It is hard to find out when the balcony at the corner was removed, as well as first city clock that was installed at the top of a frontispiece.

LPL Public Library 2015, London, Great Britain Status: Honourable Mention Duties: Idea, Model, Diagrams, Drawings, Render
The new LPL must be a natural continuation of the city and a point of total access to information. An institution that redefines the classic concept of the library and becomes a warehouse of information where all forms of information, new or old, are presented equally to the public. Design task required to keep 100% of green footprint of the site.
Reduce building footprint for smaller impact on park green area. Shift facade on the ground level to create covered entrance area. Provide additional connections between library interior and park.
Shift volume to the west and south to create terraces that are facing river and are accessible from adjacent interior spaces. This green area compensates for a portion of park, occupied by library.
Pull volume up to create spiraling interior that allows continuous explorational experience of the library for visitors.
Design intention is to create open space which allows endless transformations based on current needs of library users. Because of this, all main areas (working, investigation and encounter) are merged with shelf area and are considered as one large area which follows central spiral axis. Encounter areas are placed along east facade to provide access to terraces. Working and investigation areas that require more privacy and concentration are located along west facade. There are
two room types for those activities: fixed in location and size, and transformable/modular that can be assembled from partitions if more study area is needed. Exhibition area is placed in a double-height space on B1, which creates visual connection with main lobby. Consultation areas are distributed around it as they do not necessarily require natural light. Children centre and a restaurant on the ground level can use a portion of garden area for a small playground and an outdoor terrace.

ROCK GARDEN Office complex 2015, Beijing, China Status: Land bid proposal Duties: Idea, Model, Diagrams, Render
Brand-new office for a Chinese company that is a client for this project is supposed to become a recognizable landmark in one of developing areas of Beijing. Three towers define site boundary, while large park occupies central part of the site, creating comfortable and healthy working environment. Sky gardens, roof terraces and public atrium promote people's interaction and enrich office life.
Employ double-loaded corridor typology to increase building volume and create central atrium
Adjust volume geometry to align with site edges and increase primary facade length
Create ring road around and accomodate primary entry poitns
Create large diagonal cut to achieve 80m maximum height
Create undercuts at building base to identify main lobbies and other public enties
Additional cuts in the gemetry creates a series of sky gardens and public spaces
AFTM Museum 2015, Amsterdam, Netherlands Status: Honourable Mention Duties: Idea, Model, Diagrams, Drawings, Render
The task for this competition is to design a Contemporary Floating Toy Museum on the banks axis in central Amsterdam along with Science Center Nemo Centre, Architecture Centre Amsterdam (ARCAM), VOC-ship (18 Century Cargo Ship) and National Maritime Museum to display collections of contemporary toys and other related temporary exhibitions. One of the requirements for the proposed structure was not to exceed 20 m width limit.
PTFE membrane (interior) Flexible structure
The idea for the proposal for the floating toy museum takes its inspiration in an image of a box of toys that is hidden under the bed. To create a lightweight structure that can float, facade was made of two layers of PTFE membrane. Outer shell is retractable which is provided by a mechanical system located between two membranes. Flexible steel members allow to shift fabric up and down for a functional purpose, creating openings for entrances and cafe terrace and an aesthetics of a dynamic facade. Curved facade of the museum also recalls an image of sails. Semi-transparent fabric allows maximum natural diffuse light for all areas during daytime. At night, a building turns into a glowing floating lantern. Museum can be accessed via a standard pier, and maximal dimensions 50 m by 20 m allow to place it in various places in a harbor of Amsterdam.
