In the fall of 2013, there was an attic fire in a semi detached bungalo home. The fire caused considerable damage to the roof and to the ground floor. The owner hired MakCon as a general contractor to make necessary repairs to the house. The job includes structural repairs and a complete interior renovation while maintaining the exterior. I worked on the construction documents for the permit application.

CRVC Camelot Research & Visitors’ Center


Camelot Research and Visitor’s Center is an international student competition held by ArchMedium. The Center is located in South Cadbury, England, and it must reflect the essense of the legends of King Arthur. The program includes three museums dedicated to King Arthur and a research facility for historians. King Arthur is a hero based on a monomyth or the archetypal hero’s journey. The proposal was designed to create a journey experience through this concept.

Architecture After Oil


“THE HOUSE IS A MACHINE FOR LIVING IN” - LE CORBUSIER At the peak of the industrial age le corbusier believed that the house was much like a car in that the technology aided an aspect of life. This was his approach to designing residential architecture. However when we consider the “sustainable movement” in the current era, it becomes evident that living is not the only function a house must provide. As the world’s oil supply is diminishing, conventional architecture and typologies will no longer be sufficient in sustaining humans. Other disciplines should be considered to shape and define the type of future building in which humans will inhabit and survive. Situated on nassau st. And spadina, this project focuses to attempt to redefine today’s machine for living in. It explores the possibility of sustainable technologies as a building typology in coherence with residential spaces rather than function as an integrated sub-system. The architecture is derived from a set of external forces and assumptions of future conditions.

Principles of Detailing


This course presents principles and criteria for the technical design of the detail. These principles and criteria will be applied to the development of details, found in a variety of conditions in a building. For each condition, approaches toward detailing and performance specification are discussed, and design strategies developed. This course focuses on various types of rain-screen cladding systems and materials.

Ontario Wood WORKS!


The Wood WORKS! held an internal competition for Ryerson University. Our proposal was a prefabricated blinds system that minimized installation procedures. The design was based on the characteristics of an accordian, which enabled the product to fold into itself and be shipped as one unit.
