Professional with a bachelors degree in Architecture (2008) and accredited LEED Green Associate by the GBCI (2012) A very design and detailed oriented person. Passionate about architecture design and the new ways of finding form and comunicating a projects intent. Now a days there are numerous ways of gaining and feeding information into any given project from conception to completion; and it is something that I like to explore and develop through out the design process in order to create efficient, sustainable and a coherent habitable space. Team work is a very important aspect for a good project outcome and something I am always pleased to be a part of. I am always opened for new challenges and opportunities that help me grow and achieve my professional goals.

building B building B houses 1 commercial space laid out in 2 floor plans; and a small general service and storage area. this 2 floor plans give the building a larger look and feel, wile maintaining same typological aesthetics that balance both buildings in spite of their separation and area difference. every space in the project has an exterior dinning area overlooking the gardens; functional for most part of the year due to the way the building is oriented. the landscaping is made with all native plants to save on water use (no irrigation system was required) since they are drought tolerant and to help native biodiversity and preservation. the project also has an all native plant vertical garden that acts as a feature and provides more green area for the project, as well as a nice view from the smoking area.
sustainability the project has many sustainable qualities such as: - energy efficient envelope thermal insulation in walls cool roof assembly double glazing windows with low-e protection -solar control with metal meshes -rain water collection tanks in various spots -native plant landscape -lighting efficiency with low consumption luminaries and automated lighting control -vertical garden -recycling waste management -smoking area

the buildings form is a result of a need to provide the mos natural light and ventilation possible to all the interior spaces. the buildings has a set back that forms the buildings main access and provides an atrium with landscape and hardscape areas that hel mitigate the traffic activities along the main boulevard. the office levels are enveloped by a large curtain wall that allows for only part of the direct sun light to pass through with the use of a vertical striped pattern and double glazing with low-e protection giving it different opacity variations throughout the facade.
