TABLE OF CONTENTS SQUIRREL COVE RESTAURANT
RETROFIT: BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB
SQUIRREL The Klahoose First Nation tribe in Squirrel Cove, British Columbia wished to bring revenue to their popular sailboating destination through the addition of a restaurant. The form was picked by the tribe members to respresent a sailboat out at sea. They wished for the interior to celebrate the local materials and the culture of their tribe. Local, recycled oyster shells are used to allude to the local economy as a feature wall when guests first enter the space. Slate floors balance the wood structure and ground the building into the rock bluff on which it sits, allowing the transition from outdoors to indoors to be comfortable and smooth. In addition, a bold, organic curve softens the harsh angles of the sailboat inspired structure, shaping both the back and front of the house. This gesture flatters the curve of the facade while gently leading patrons into the bulk of the restaurant, as well as the fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean. Organic forms found in nature, as well as the curving and undulating forms found in native Coastal Sailish artwork inspired the curving form of the feature wall. Seating and circulation radiate off of this main curve, from the interior outwards onto the deck and patio below.

LUMINAIRE In order to learn more about electric control systems, we were able to design, wire, and construct a luminaire. The luminaire is designed for EspressoRoma, a local economically-friendly coffee store just outside of campus. The cafe has a warm and ecclectic feeling. Students and locals alike come to this coffee shop in order to study, meet with friends, or read in this comfortable and casual atmosphere. To maintain this theme, we chose to design a pendant light made out of recycled coffee filters. The pendant distributes warm, soft light onto the tables below and is rectangular in form, mimicking the shape of the floor plan as well as the clean angles and lines throughout the store.

RETROFIT: Nestled in between multiple schools and parks, an old Albertsons store in Springfield, OR is the ideal size and location for a Boys and Girls Club. Both teenagers and young children are encouraged to do homework, play pool or board games with each other, have snacks, and other such activities to keep them out of trouble and allow for a safe and happy atmosphere in which they can live a normal childhood. Each Boys and Girls Club has a special program or feature.
The Outdoor Program is a specialized program that encourages interaction with the outdoors through bike rides, hikes, field trips around the nearby area and University campus, as well as indoor learning that includes tent building, and so on. This building will take advantage of the great Pacific-Northwest as well as enhancing the Boys and Girls Clubs fundamentals of building leadership, hope, and opportunity in a safe and stable environment. The additions of a large outdoor progam-dedicated room, and an atrium that encloses a garden and rockwall, will be influential in obtaining these goals.

FINE ART Besides architecture and design, I have always enjoyed fine art mediums such as drawing and painting. Pencil, oil paint, and acrylic paint are my preferred mediums. I also enjoy drawing everything from family members and people, to landscapes, cityscapes, or still lifes.
