AUSTIN SHUTTER LOFTS

Course: Flexible Housing Studio, F11 Location: Austin, TX

One of the greatest challenges in sustainable architecture is designing buildings so they will remain in use in a hundred years. Both the interior and exterior of The Shutter Lofts strive for this level of longevity. The interior is designed to allow individual units to be subdivided, giving owners flexibility. An operable terracotta shading system covers the skin of the building, creating user controlled climate regulation using a recyclable and renewable material.

The final design proposes to redefine the scale of the neighborhood by creating an urban wall at the street scape and a taller mass that is aimed towards the growth of the neighborhood. The double-skin system aims to satisfy the thermal comfort needs of the occupant while creating a sustainable skin for the building.

NEW HARLEM PIER PARK

Course: Summer Studio, S10 Location: New York, NY

As part of the urban renewal of Central Harlem, the Harlem Pier Park provides a soft edge to 125th Street, Harlem’s main thoroughfare. The central focus of the park is a pedestrian pier, the first built in NYC in 20 years. The park aimed to provide the residents of Harlem a place to congregate, fish, and boat. Instead, the park was used as a highway for bicyclists and runners between the George Washington Bridge to the North and Riverside Park to the South. In an effort to service both needs, I proposed a new system of piers which supported both pedestrians and park visitors equally.

The final design proposed a hierarchy of movement through the park. A primary pier comprised of a single structural module creates a pathway for pedestrians, runners and bicyclists. This structure supports secondary pathways, performance spaces, and a floating park below.

My project explores how a chair can be modified and activated by rotating the entire object and by moving a single element. I explored a variety of forms and construction methods before I settled on slats of plywood. The proportions of the chair had to be precise in order to fulfill the size requirements of all three states. The final design takes the form of a chair, stool and side table.

MARQUEE DESIGN Office: Koenen Associates Position: Project Manager Location: Boston, MA

25

The owner of Club Quarters Hotel wanted to update their marquee design for a series of their hotels. By replacing the existing canvas awnings with a lightweight aluminum construction we were able to create a more durable and modern design. The end product included signage panels with interchangeable finishes hung from enamel painted steel channels. As project manager I was responsible for the design development, the shop drawings, and the construction administration of the marquee.

The Jewel Hotel is situated adjacent to Rockefeller Center and St. Edwards Cathedral. The program called for fitting 140 rooms and amenity spaces within a slender foot print and under 120’. Achieving the final design took months of coordination between all design teams to integrate all mechanical and structural systems into the final design. The following pages represents my portion of the work on the project
