THE READ MIXED-USE APARTMENT | 01 ARCH402 | FALL 2016 | PROF HILL | 7 WEEKS

The main objective of this project was to create the most efficient mixed-use apartment located on Read Street in the historic district, Mt. Vernon, of Baltimore, MD. Through a site analysis, observations were made in order to design an apartment that would fit with the site context. The design follows the historic district’s Design Guidelines for New Construction in order to not disturb the history of Mt. Vernon. This apartment consists of an U-shape with 3 volumes of different heights. Surrounding buildings generated the heights of the volumes. Behind the building, the alley is reactivated as an promenade that leads users towards a procession of stairs and water feature. The destination takes the user to an elevated green courtyard, a vital element absent throughout Mt. Vernon. Additionally, the building follows a classical language of a bottom, middle, and crown (retail, residential, and penthouse) and repetitive bays on the facades.

The ground floor is dedicated to commercial on N Charles St with an underground parking for residents and consumers. The main entrance to the residential is on W Read St. On the upper floors, the apartment soars at great heights to set views of the historic part of Baltimore. Residents will also have access to an elevated courtyard area.

The apartment is compromised of 3 volumes. Their heights are determined by the buildings around it. This makes the apartment fit in with its context. The interplay of the different heights sets various views of Baltimore, such as the Washington Monument and the Latrobe Building.

The different heights of the volume play a major role in southern exposure. Through sun studies, the volumes’ heights were also determined to reduce shade onto the elevated courtyard in order to provide comfortability to the users.

THE CLASSICAL CIVIC BUILDING | 02 ARCH402 | FALL 2016 | PROF HILL | 7 WEEKS

This project started with analytical drawings and studies of a precedent study of Palazzo Nuovo in Rome by Michelangelo in order to establish the fundaments of the classical language--proportions, scale, rhythm, and etc. This knowledge was then used in conveying compositional attention paid to the vertical surfaces of a grand-monumental classical civic building. The initial design started in the Grand Room by establishing a repetitive motif of the nave walls: the entrance wall, the side walls, and the stage. This motif is then echoed onto the exterior facade in order to follow the scheme of uniformity as a whole. The last component of the project was a grand processional promenade. Sequence of spaces were generated starting at the entrace vestibule into an arrival atrium space with a Grand Stair that rises to the Piano Nobile level of the Grand Room.

THE SOUND ROOM | 03

ARCH401 | SPRING 2016 | PROF MATTHEWS | 8 WEEKS

The Sound Room consists of three practice rooms for musicians in DC on North H Street. It features a grand atrium space for social gathering. Not only perform, musicians can interact with others on the multi-use terrace stairs under the skylight. Also, users can open up the garage doors and transform the sidewalk into a stage. The grand practice room on the intermediate level also serves as a secondary performance stage with operable garage doors. The stairs play a major role in the design to wrap users around the entire space in order to fully experience the spaces, such as the mezzanine level and exterior loft.
