Calgary, AB

Kasian Architecture This nine-storey office building was built in Calgary’s boom of the 1980s. Its all brick facade and reflective gold tinted windows were in need of an update. We added a significant amount to rentable square footage by pushing the line of the original glazed exterior wall out to meet the existing overhang. The entrance that was once from the west side of the building was relocated to the north, opening up the lobby for a more elegant and useful reception area. As the building is entirely leased by non-profit groups, a larger lobby and eating area provided an opportunity for increased interaction between these NGOs. The exterior was reclad with zinc panels and detailed with a wide-flange beam that wrapped around the top to terminate the new exterior finish. I developed the design for this project - with feedback from the client - and produced all documents relating to its construction. I managed it from permitting through construction administration.

Calgary Reads

Calgary, AB

Kasian Architecture Calgary Reads is a non-profit group promoting reading advocacy throughout the city. Kasian Architecture joined with the community and donated design services for a more centrally located and larger office space to serve as their headquarters. I maximized the opportunities of the street-level location to market the client’s cause and to provide a fun and welcoming environment for their young patrons. The triangular reading area in the corner of their space utilizes a bright wall mural to keep kids excited and bring in focus from the street. The program required both individual and collaborative work spaces as well as a large room for training staff and board meetings. Based on the client’s functional program and existing furnishings I designed this office space - including all finish choices - and produced all required construction documentation.

Save the River

Clayton, NY

Grater Architects An addition to this historic building in Clayton’s downtown core was critical to its continued functioning as the St. Lawrence River’s preeminent environmental watchdog. The small footprint and low ceilings of the original structure were limiting the number of office staff. My schematic design for the addition provided more office space for both individual and group work, a meeting room, a small kitchen, much needed storage space, and increased accessibility, all while keeping with the heritage aesthetic of the original building.

Eddison Residence

Lombardy, ON

Independent Work This renovation focused on updating the utilitarian zones of this vacation home. Priorities included a reorganization of the kitchen and mud room/laundry room to provide better workspace and storage options, and updating lighting fixtures and the plumbing system. Additionally, a face-lift of the auxiliary cabin on the property provided brighter and more welcoming guest accommodation. Sustainable materials and strategies were prioritized throughout the project and included a more efficient plumbing system and fixtures, LED lighting, local reclaimed materials, and a new steel roof on all of the buildings on the property. Working independently, I helped the clients define the scope of the project, and once approved, took my design through construction. I worked daily on-site with the contractors and trades - learning from them and monitoring and assisting in progress. In the project manager role, I kept the client current and delivered the project on schedule and on budget.

Yale University Building Project

New Haven, CT

Yale School of Architecture For over thirty years, the first year class of the Yale School of Architecture’s Master of Architecture program has built one house per year for low-income families. These projects are designed by teams in the spring semester and built by a dozen students over the summer, of which I was one. The design of our house drops in section following the slope of the site. The interior emphasizes this through the design of a datum line of wood that reads from the stair landing at the front of the house, through the kitchen counters, and finally manifests itself in the top of the built-in shelves in the living room. Unique details include CNC milled siding at the transom windows, a screen at the stair landing, and a large bench - of my design - on the back deck that provides storage as well as seating. As Field Crew Manager I monitored construction progress and developed work plans to be staffed with collegues as required. On the design side, I helped to develop multiple details on-site and provided all finish material choices for the project.

Constellation House

New Haven, CT

Yale University This project concentrates all program utilities into an architectural constellation that spans the depth of the site. This is achieved by compiling activities that take place in a single family home, identifying the program adjacencies and overlaying those relationships relative to the site conditions. The linear articulation that resulted serves to suggest differing programmatic zones across the site as a whole. This project was designed by myself and eight of my classmates in the Masters of Architecture program. I was heavily involved in refining the concept of the utility core where all of the mechanical, electrical and plumbling would be concentrated in the house. I also contributed significantly to the further development of the floor plans and built all of the physical models for presentation.

Bridget Shim Studio - Interfaith Chapel

Toronto, ON

Yale University The role of this interfaith chapel is to provide a space of charity and compassion. Many faiths unite around the importance of public health advocacy and work towards alleviating the pressures of poverty. This unique site offers the ability to transform these ideals into action. The site is surrounded by an urban neighbourhood to the south and east and the Don Valley ravine to the north and west. This valley has served - and continues to serve - as a repository for Toronto’s urban fringes. In addition to infrastructural externalities like a sewage treatment plant and a brick factory, the ravine has become a haven for a group of homeless individuals who live there year-round. The goal of this project is to create a place where a supportive relationship between the people of the urban community and

the ravine community can be cultivated; a goal that finds expression both in the architecture and the mission of the project’s multi-faith chapel.

This project recognizes that we as designers, curators, students, and visitors experience and learn through the lens of our own culture. It therefor becomes important to understand the cultural context of Wesleyan and its collections, and to incorporate these into the design of the museum; admitting and clarifying the limits of our own perspectives.

FAT Studio - Bishopsgate Goodsyard

London, UK

Yale University This project connects two adjacent neighbourhoods through a creative corridor cutting across the site. While still catering to the day users of The City of London’s financial district, the neighbourhoods of Brick Lane to the east and Shoreditch to the north-west will benefit with added housing, commercial revitalization and most importantly arts-based program. The site attracts people through this arts program and by locating two areas of open public space with complementary “programmatic magnets” at its periphery. These magnets are pockets of dense activity accommodating multiple functions - from a community theater, to a laundromat, to elderly housing - all within one structure.

Andrea Kahn Studio - Fort Point Waterfront

Boston, MA

Yale University This project confronts a reality where increasing economic and environmental costs of global trade have resulted in the development of more regionally reliant cities. By organizing the 22 acres in Fort Point Boston with urban anchors (school, market, and civic building) at the periphery, we designed a residential neighbourhood that ties into larger systems in the city of Boston. The mixed-use courtyard typology coupled with the public school creates a productive residential subneighbourhood to the south, while the market at the hinge of the site anchors a more commercial zone to the north. The project invests in smart infrastructure and sustainable energy concepts. It takes advantage of the tidal patterns affecting the site to produce renewable energy and more interesting public spaces.

Artistic Analysis Architecture goes beyond the scope of a building. My background as an artist has prompted me to use art as a means of analysis and exploration within architectural projects. The following section is a sampling of the types of process documents that I have used in my projects. Whether it is mapping a site, photographing everyday textures under my feet, or exploring lighting by building a fixture, art helps me express aspects of a project beyond plans, sections and elevations.
