The lack of transition between the landscape and green roof encourages exploration of the site without restriction, while an exterior playscape extends to the west of the school. Exterior facades of the buildings are finished with interference coated steel paneling and semi-mirrored glazing leaving light rays being casted between the two buildings to reflect and expand the space as individuals pass through.

BOOKSTORE DESIGN SPRING 2016 | STUDIO 3 | INSTRUCTOR: ERIC ARCHAMBAULT The building design engages multiple programs including a store and residential level. Both the form of the building and the importance of art within the local community inspired the choice of featuring local pottery within the bookstore as well. The origin of the project design was inspired by my previously designed plaza adjacent to the building site. The plazaâ€™s double curved shell structures influenced how people interacted and traveled throughout the space, and I wished to bring this methodology of circulation to the bookstore. Maintaining the impact and distinct contrast between the various moves was also key in having these large, bold, curvaceous and orthogonal structures within the space speak to each other cohesively, while still engaging a natural circulation flow. The curvaceous forms within the building also serve as shelving for the books and pottery being sold, seating elements, and a recessed storytelling space.
HOUSE STUDY | ROOFTOP GARDEN INTERVENTION WINTER 2015 | STUDIO 2 | INSTRUCTOR: MARIANA ESPONDA The intervention of a green roof developed upon the original structure of the home creates an entirely new viewing device in a space previously underutilized. The new space builds upon the original rooftop as form-work for the non-intrusive addition. The decked rooftop hosts multiple garden beds, a rooftop shed, and seating areas. These are all accessible by an interior and exterior stair, or through the master bedroom. The connection made between the home and the external landscape surrounding the rooftop space is brings one experiencing the space to connect with the environment.
