WYNWOOD | MIAMI, FL


CREATIVE FACADE

The facade becomes a creative/flexible outlet for its residents to add to Wynwood’s arts community, while also using natural design strategies to create a comfortable climate and environment to relax in. The residents gather and socialize in a front porch like community space on each floor, changing the facade to their imagination.

NORTH BEACH VILLAGE | FT. LAUDERDALE, FL


PIXEL STRATEGY

A phased, strategy in addressing urban street infrastructure sought to evolve the paved paradise from a hard landscape into a soft, low-impact infrastucture. Using natural design strategies such as rain gardens help mitigate the issues in the neighborhood involved with sea-level rise and flooding.

AERIAL RENDERING

This project was a combination of urban design strategy to address street design in the flooding neighborhood of North Beach Village located along Fort Lauderdale Beach. A “pixelated� approach to the design allowed the landscape to evolve over time in phases, and gave a flexibility and modularity to the design.
