hello, I am a designer with a passion for the hybrid nature of Interior Architecture. My fascination towards the flexibility of interiority, within architecure, will always push me to explore new concepts and work with an open mind toward impactful design. I believe in bringing a unique approach to design through intense exploration and consideration of human centered integration.

It’s factual that there is a lack of diversification in Knoxville and among today’s society. Whether this lack of diversity is purposeful or subconscious, architecture can eliminate factors that may cause subconscious invertedness.

This project seeks to delineate how form and materiality can usher connectivity and allocate heterogeneous community. Hotel Exposure invites guests to collaborate with others through providing various opportunities of engaging space. Space planning has been organized to purposefully allocate maximum square footage to public spaces and minimum square footage to private spaces. Exposed spaces will give occupants an opportunity to knit together like a cellular structure to create a collective community.

The design was inspired by the study of a bioluminescent organism, the comb jellyfish. The Comb Jellyfish emits light from its internal structure when it receives vibration from its surrounding environment. The organism has a double skin structure. Its internal skin is the receptor of vibrations and the external skin is known as the nerve mesh that filters information through the skin. Within Annapurna’s incubator, one will find similar qualities of the comb jellyfish that experiment with light, vibration and reception. The incubator hosts spaces for exploration, experimentation and ideation. The more formal spaces host areas for film screening, employee workspace and meeting rooms. The overall environment offers a healthy thriving workspace by offering beneficial levels of light. The light levels throughout the incubator vary based on the occupancy level, similar to how the comb jellyfish reacts to vibration.

SENSORY EXPERIENCE

upscale salon

knoxville, tn

Sensory Exploration is situated in the heart of downtown Knoxville in the historic Daylight Building. Unlike other spaces downtown, the design of this salon will closely analyze and appropriate human needs within a space. At any point in one’s life, they could become disabled. Therefore, design should recognize this and be more sensitive to the subject. Not only will this salon be accessible, but it will do so in a pure aesthetic manner. This salon and spa circulates in a pattern that creates more introverted and less introverted spaces; therefore, exploring the duality of introversion and extroversion. The space is also aware of biophilic design and explores five separate patterns of biophilia through the unwrapping of sensory experiences.

artist-in-residence

knoxville, tn

Candora Marble is a local historic site to South Knoxville. The historic carriage house has been designed to host an artistin-residence, while also providing a gallery space for the artist to showcase their work. The organization of the residence is based off of the proportions of Japanese tatami mats. The tatami mat is referenced in the acoustical panels extruded from the ceiling in the gallery and residence to allow for peaceful living quarters. Adjacent to the residence is a warehouse designed to host studios for local artists. The pods are deigned as a prefabricated system that can easily be delivered and assembled on site. The light, airy quality of the pods allows maximum exposure to the natural light that floods the space through the clerestory windows. The series of panels that make up the facade of the pods move on a track to allow the artist to work socially or independently. The warehouse space is lined with an irrigated green wall to provide a healthy and interactive workspace.

urban study

knoxville, tn

This studio proposes the question of what urbanity means in different regions. Using Knoxville as our case study, the studio breaks Knoxville down into three areas or “urban”. The regions include, the east civic, downtown, and the wild west. Studying the wild west, this project has begun to unravel the use of the site and question it’s urbanity. The studio also questions the idea of the institution and what an institution may be, depending on it’s site. Studying the institution of transcendence, this project has so far made conclusions that the current state of the site lacks identity and revolves around a fast paced, lite weight atmosphere. Through the creation of a 2d and 3d machine, these observations were modeled.

precedent PRECEDENT STUDYstudy

The Uplift Stool is designed to alleviate stress and strain on small animals that like to rest on furniture. The stool acts as an assistance that can eliminate the challange of making such a large jump from the ground to furniture. The rounded seat of the stool provides a comforting support for the animal if they choose to use the seat as a resting place. The angular legs create tension between one another, resembling the gap of the opposing species, humans and animals. However, the connection the legs provide for the support of the stool resembles the care and intensions humans can have for animals. The Uplift Stool will provide small animals with a comfortable easy transition from the ground as well as a snug resting place.

Designed from inspiration of the 1960’s telephone chair, the Gossip Lounge invites friends or strangers to sit together in conversation through the sling back design and enticing space. At 52” wide, the lounge seat can comfortably seat two people and allow space for drinks, eats or a 1960’s table phone. The design of the angled legs and rounded shape strives to give the feeling of authentic mid-century modern furniture. 16”
