In this project, I worked with Merileigh Williamson at Clark Condon Associates. Our task was to produce a set of construction documents for the redevelopment of the perimeter fence of Compass Rose Community. During this project I had the opportunity to work on the concept designs and the renderings for client presentation. The following images show three of the concepts for a thin wall system that we presented to the Home Owners Association

SCHEMATIC SITE PLANNING:
This project is located in a large block defined primarily by Rock Prairie Rd, Bird Pond Rd, HWY 30 and William Fitch Pkwy. in College Station, TX. The task was to study the landscape characteristics as both mapped and viewed on a site visit, document the analysis of those characteristics, determine which areas are suitable for the assigned land uses and complete a schematic land development plan. The site is about 4578 acres and only 10% of it was designated to develop The Ranch.

These rendering represent some of the most important elements that we use to design people places. The purpose of these renderings was to study and analyze the effect of colors, tones and shades.
