LOCATION: Upper Klamath Lake, Klamath Falls, OR SIZE: Project Total: 30,000 sf TYPE: Interpretation Center + Cabins marsh

DESCRIPTION: The Shoalwater Bay Habitat Center + Retreat project consisted of an environmental interpretation center for Upper Klamath Lake, one of the largest fresh water lakes west of the Great Lakes, and a set of 5 retreat cabins to compliment and further connect users to the environment and wildlife. Extensive site analysis and environmental research was conducted in order to make informed design decisions for creating functional and informational spaces. DESIGN: The interpretive center was designed as a co-habitat space for human visitors and the exisiting wildlife native to the Shoalwater Bay area. Wildlife habitats were mimicked on the edge of the building, attracting various species, where human visitors could approach the potential wildlife visitors without startling or negatively impacting the environment. The cabins were designed on a linear axis, aligning a view, the hearth, and an outdoor space to allow users to enjoy personal / private space that directly engages them with the enviornment around them.

CHINA TOWN MIX-USE

LIGHT AND CIRCULATION VOLUME

grocery + office + residence PROFESSOR HENRY KUNOWSKI | JAN. - JUN. 2011 LOCATION: Chinatown, Portland, OR SIZE: 75,000 sf TYPE: Mixed-Use

DESCRIPTION: NW Portland’s Chinatown and Oldtown Districts have great night life activity but they lack legitiment daytime presence in the urban area. This absence can be partially blamed on a shortage of living spaces and a supportive cast of programmatic elements which might help residents reside in the local area. The Chinatown Mix-use project can potentially fix both these issues, featuring 28 mixed single and dual resident units, 10,000 sf of rentable office space, and a 13,000 sf market and small cafe. With further mixed-use development of adjacent blocks, (such as the parking lot west of the project; conceptually redesigned here as a park) the districts will surely be brought back to life. DESIGN AESTHETIC: The Northwest Portland area has unique character and historic style, and as development of the various historic districts continues, it is imperative that their attractive qualities are preserved. Many historic buildings have a distinct rhythm; regular bay systems are often found on the facades of mixed-use buildings which are further divided up to create strong, regulating lines. The Chinatown Mix-use project features a varied structural pattern which fits tightly into the building lot. Maintaining a strict bay system vertically and horizontally shaped this building’s robust frame while still abiding by setback ordinances in it’s volume.

NW OFFICE INTERIORS RENOVATION + REBRANDING

CONSTRUCTION: JUL. - SEP. 2010 | OWNER: STEVE WEBER LOCATION: Milwaukie, OR SIZE: 3,800 sf TYPE: Sales Office BUDGET: $50,000

Jake Weber Designer | Marketing Admin jake@nwofficeinteriors.com www.nwofficeinteriors.co m 12400 SE Freeman Way, Ste 105 Milwau office: 503.785.1515 cell: kie, OR 97222 503.975.3376

DESCRIPTION: NW Office Interiors is a family-owned, commercial furniture dealership servicing the Pacific Northwest. In 2010, the office aquired an insurance drive-up claims office in Milwaukie that needed renovation. Construction included repurposing of a garage and combining exsiting suites into one large office. Approaching their 10 year anniversary, NW Office Interiors was also looking to rebuild their image to attract contemporary designers and new business. A new website and logo design was created to help bring this company into the new age. DESIGN: NW Office Interiors thrives on providing the ultimate customer service to their clients, which means collaboration between internal departments was of the upmost importance. An open plan concept was designed, bringing down hard walls to increase communication while allowing light to travel deeper into the space. 4160 SE Internationa

STORAGE TV STORAGE CREDENZA: NWOI needed the ability to visually communicate ideas and space planning designs with clients via a monitor while maintaining a clean, professional look. A motorized credenza was designed to store a 42” flat screen underneath a hinged door; the electric motor assembly was designed to push the hinged door up with a padded rail to allow the TV to raise/lower smoothly.


MEDIA VISUALIZATION

MISC. ARTWORK AND EXPLORATION DESCRIPTION: Although conceptual design is incredibly important, communicating new ideas with evocative visualization is equally meaningful. Clients and colleagues must be able to understand and quickly visualize a designed space, and various approaches to this can evoke completely different emotions. It is the job of the architect to communicate these ideas as clearly as possible, so the client can imagine their completed project.
