Design Statement Tadao Ando has said, “You can’t really say what is beautiful about a place, but the image of the place will remain vividly with you.” I believe that architecture is our universal language; a great connector in a world of difference. As the first visual clue to a place, architecture is indicative of cultural and economic situations and, at its best, is intricately woven into the fabric of the surrounding community. I aspire to architecture that supports and enriches its sociological and ecological environments. I aspire to architecture that is truly beautiful and its ability to remain vividly with you.

are two neighboring multifamily apartment buildings, each containing 5 two and three bedroom apartments. The project is walk-able to the fresh pond area but tucked away in a quieter area of the city. This project is unique in that it breaks down the scale of the multi-family building to a more residential level and creates a stronger sense of community among the residents. Construction of this project happened over a 5 month period with a total of 18 modular boxes lifted into place over the course of 2 days. This project was complete in the Fall of 2012. 02

AbodeZ, 2012 Involvement: assisted in preparation of special permit set, design development, mechanical system coordination drawings, unit design, bid set and project coordination.
603 Concord Avenue is ideally sited directly across from Fresh Pond Park and is within minutes of the Alewife T station and the Fresh Pond Shopping Center. The project will add 61 residential units and approximately 6,000 sf of retail space to this burgeoning neighborhood. This project will be constructed using two different methods, with the retail level in steel frame, essentially acting as a plinth for 5 floors of modular, wood frame construction above. Modular construction creates a unique set of advantages as well as challenges. While extra care is required in coordination for the construction, the resulting building offers a higher sense of privacy between the units as each unit is separated by a double-wall construction. Direct venting also helps enhance the living conditions of the prospective tenants.

REID WARD devonshire, bermuda
botelho wood architects 2010 Involvement: survey of existing, permit drawings, bidding & contract negotiation, furniture design, construction observation, construction change directives & change orders
Renovations to the REID WARD of the Mid Atlantic Wellness Institute included extensive interior works to the bedrooms, existing bathing facility, common areas and nurseâ€™s station, as well as the design and construction of a new shower room that would allow the project to be phased. Additionally, we designed custom furniture to be installed in the patient rooms that would add ample storage and privacy between the toilet and sleeping areas. Special circumstances were that the project had an extremely short time-frame, with design and construction occurring sometimes concurrently, over a six month span. Additionally, the ward was under constant occupation for the duration of the project and there was a change of user mid-way through construction.
DOWLING RESIDENCE warwick, bermuda
botelho wood architects 2009 Involvement: schematic design, client presentations, permit drawings, tender set, bid review.
THE DOWLING RESIDENCE
is located to the rear of a sub-divided lot atop a very steep, narrow hill and has the advantage of unobstructed views to Bermudaâ€™s South Shore, while maintaining a step in height from the neighboring lots so as to maintain their views as well. My involvement in this project ranged from feasibility studies and code review, to schematic design proposals and meeting with the client to discuss design options, as well as permit and construction drawings and bidding documents. The project also involved coordination with local building authorities and fire departments to discuss potential problems of fire equipment gaining access to the property.
WATERLOO HOUSE hamilton, bermuda
botelho wood architects 2009 Involvement: Conceptual renderings, planning permit set
WATERLOO HOUSE is a mixed use building that will occupy a waterfront lot in Bermudaâ€™s financial center. Throughout the schematic design phase, I assisted the project team in preparing conceptual renderings, documenting site conditions and context through photomontage and preparing roof terrace schemes and rendered elevations for client meetings. Special considerations for this project involved the demolition of an existing hotel on the property and a significant slope from street grade to the harbour front facade. 14
THE ECO-BAR was a two-part design
competition in which the owner, Watford Sports Club, required a kitchen/ bar area and also a smaller, bbq station and deck. The design utilized reclaimed Bermuda shutters attached to a track system as the main bar area and a shaded seating area comprised of reused sails. The only permanent structures in this proposal are the restrooms and dish-washing area, which are supplied by a rainwater tank below.

SUSTAINABLE BEACHFRONT DINING
Institute of Bermuda Architects Student Design Competition 2009
SEASCAPE was a design competition sponsored by the Bermuda Department of Parks for a new lifeguard tower that can be easily maintained and is better suited to the way the lifeguards actually work. The goal of the proposal was to maximize storage space while maintaining vantage points around the whole structure. The proposal utilized a series of sliding components so that the structure could be fully opened during the day and closed in the evening.

BERLINER FESTSPIELHAUS berlin, germany
fall 2008 . professor mallwitz Wentworth Institute of Technology Comprehensive Design Studio
THE FESTSPIELHAUS is a cultural landmark within the urban fabric of Berlin. However, itâ€™s immediate surroundings are entirely residential in nature and are somewhat lacking in diversity. The scheme for the entry addition became an attempt to create an urban situation within the courtyard space created between the new and existing structures. By utilizing bridges and covered walkways the proposal allows for minimal impact on the existing structure. The key of this proposal is that the nearby cabaret bar, Bar Jeder Vernunft, is relocated on the site, adding an element of diversity between the users of the space.

THE HOUSING STUDIO
began with a collaborative studio effort to produce a master plan for four underdeveloped lots in Lower Roxbury, MA. Our studio group developed an extensive set of design guidelines and identified that all proposed buildings and sites should satisfy five basic rules of: Ecology - Each parcel contains open space Safety - Each parcel contains 18-24hr active zones Circulation - Enhance pedestrian circulation Community - Provide community space on each parcel Economy - Each parcel to create job opportunities 28

VISION IMPAIRED SUITE
Shared space [integration back into society]
Secure outdoor spaces
Lots of light
Private spacefor rest and recuperation
Activity space ‘Memory Boxes’
is a means of allowing people to age gracefully, maintaining independence as long as possible while having resources available to help with activities of daily living. In the second phase of the housing studio, each student developed one building from the collective master plan. The design was driven largely by conversations with elderly residents of the area who maintained that they wanted, more than anything to still be a part of their urban community. Increasing the circulation points allowed each unit to maintain connection to the urban edge and a semi-private courtyard. 30
KYOTO KIMONO GALLERY newbury street, boston, ma hereford street
fall 2010 . professor klopfer Wentworth Institute of Technology Special Topics Studio
KIMONO GALLERY was designed as a U.S. headquarters for the non-profit organization, Reborn Kyoto. The company’s mission is to provide women in developing countries with basic job skills by learning how to sew, using recycled kimonos. The finished garments are auctioned in Kyoto and Boston to fund future programs. This project is sited in Boston’s prominent outdoor shopping area, Newbury Street, and the concept was driven heavily by both the Kimono as high fashion and the context of Newbury as a street to see and be seen. The program includes administrative offices, gallery space, high-end retail, and educational space to engage the local community by offering skills training and job placement services. The heart of the building is the auction space, which has a catwalk at ground level to activate Newbury and Hereford Streets during auctions or fashion shows.
