It should house 40-60 individuals and should combine work and living spaces. My choosen block faces public spaces on its south and east facades.The groundfloor is kept as work- studio spaces for residents while upper floors for living.Flats are designed so that living spaces would face south side and public square while bedrooms are facing north and private courtyard.According to orientation , south side has a lot of glazing to benefit from solar gains and reduce heating demands , while north side consits of smaller windows pattern.Shutters system is used to protect building from overheating as well as to create greater privacy if needed.

The requirement of brief was to create a weather monitoring station which is open for wider public. The building is situated in old millâ€™s site in St. Andrew.Circulation core becomes as a transmission element between public and private, old and new. Moreover, copper cladding reacts to weather during the time creating unique appearance of facade. Roof lights provide a good quality of light to different activities spaces. Thermal shutters and solar panels make the building energy efficient during the whole year.

The requirement of brief was to create a flamenco dance studio in Rothsay Isle of Bute. Building design was inspired by moving flamenco dancers dress cloth. Three main parts of the building define contrats in function and shape of spaces.
Room With a View technologies used AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop,hand drawing
The requirement of brief was to create a shelter in Mount Stuart. Corten steel structure is situated on the shore of Firth of Clyde. The shape has developed from the beetle seen on the site. It is a diverse experience to be inside as the light penetrates from the upper shell as well as the front surface would frame the view where the horizon meets the water.
The competition was to design a sculpture for ‘SELECT’, the Scottish Electrical Contractors association - to be installed in their office courtyard, a former walled garden at the Bush Estate near Penicuik. The Institute’s judges considered Cor-Ten steel proposal was ‘highly appropriate’. The entry proposal was illustrated in the RIAS’s magazine, RIAS Quartely.
