hand renderings

underground sustainability


upper level

this project was very broad: design a sustainable house. i decided on underground sustainability. this house has lots of windows for a great use of daylighting, solar panels on the roof which faces south, green appliances and finishes, and all which happen in the best sustainable feature, being underground.


this project was a two week long competition. the challenge was to provide a design for aids orphaned children in south africa. in this 2 week group project i contributed: the hand renderings, the parti sketches, the rough sketches, the concept of the space. as a group i helped. to contribute to the space planning, finishes, and use of space.

hard hype advertizing office hard hype is an advertizing agency for the gaming industry. it needs a space that allows each employee to do his/her own work then get together in a small group and collaborate. the concept is ameba. the ameba has few but vital parts that work together to keep the organism alive.

electrical plan


app state university has a rv that tours around north carolina that needs remodeling. it promotes its enology and viticulture program. the rv acts as an information center or museum. my partner and i wanted to make sure the rv revives the knowledge of wine, uses recycled materials while also teaching those entering how to recycle using wine products, and we also wanted to get a reaction from people entering the space by providing them with enology facts that they can get excited about learning.

nkba kitchen and bath competition

the nkba competition requires that all codes and ada requirements be applied to design. the couple who’s kitchen and bath i designed wanted a traditional federal style with lots of specific need tied in without looking cluttered. this compact kitchen provides over 30 culinary needs: baking center, refrigerator, wall ovens, closet for pet’s needs, desk space for paying bills, t.v., mixer lift-up, microwave oven drawer, refrigerator drawers, private and group seating, etc. the bathroom also allows for super storage in a compact space.

conceptual restaraunt dalga is a conceptual resturaunt. it is designed for an old building that used to be a factory office in turkey. dalga means ‘wave’ in turkish. the exterior seating represents a fish being pulled out of water. when entering the building the experience changes to submerging under water to see what the fish sees. from floor to ceiling the atmosphere and finishes reflect sealife. those who dine in the space act as schools of fish moving through the space.


hobbies

i enjoy knitting, photography, water colors, my online business, singing, and playing my accordion.


thanks
