my home: a vintage airstream renovation Like any designer, I think a lot about form and function. There are few places where these two values are the more crucial to a person’s health and happiness than in their home. For my partner Laura and I, we did not want to compromise either of these values. We wanted a comfortable and beautiful home that we could afford to own outright. We also didn’t want to settle down in one place quite yet. The renovation began in the summer of 2015 and was completed in the spring of 2018 . This was a full gut renovation, where I stripped the Airstream to it’s bones. Our home has since been featured on Apartment Therapy and will be featured in the upcoming book ‘The Modern Caravan: Stories of Love, Beauty, and Adventure on the Open Road’ by Kate Oliver (Chronicle Books, March 2022)

Kinesthesis Few things are as comforting, familiar, and energizing as a hot cup of coffee. This project is a study of the rapid and chaotic latte making ritual. The building form urges an occupant to view and then circulate spaces that feature the kinetic gestures hands make while operating an espresso machine. CT

The proposed building is meant to act as a community center for the urban neighborhood of ‘Frogtown’ along the Los Angeles River. The local community is actively being changed through intensive gentrification. To combat against this development, this proposal is a facility that seeks to address housing, employment, public activity space, and affordable dining. The formal qualities draw upon organic gestures that suggest movement and interaction. The building invites visitors into the lower and upper floors with sweeping, curvilinear circulation paths that flow throughout the project. The private dwelling space on the middle floor is enveloped by the other levels flowing forms to evoke a sense of security , safety , and tranquility.


Visitors experience the fluidity and flowing forms of the architecture t


through programmed circulation.

Located along the L.A. River... ...and nestled into a fully developed area of ‘Frogtown’ in Los Angeles, the proposal would contrast it’s surroundings creating a point of interest for those visiting the neighborhood and offer a new gathering place for locals. The parcel the building will be built upon is adjacent to a well used bike/pedestrian path that runs along the Los Angeles River. This section of the river is known for it’s steep concrete banks and mature trees that survive the urban environment. This community center will be built in anticipation of the future ‘Taylor Yard Park‘ that is being constructed across the river. Much like the park, the structure will be intended to be treated as an asset to the community and the city of Los Angeles.

OPEN CINEMA/ EVENT SPACE

TEMPORARY HOUSING

COFFEE/SNACK BAR

Each level is prescribed a separate program to maximize efficacy of the mixed uses. The first level offers a coffee and snack bar that to serve the neighborhood with as currently there are few inexpensive dining options. The second level is dorm-style dwelling units intended for temporary supportive housing for vulnerable community members facing homelessness. The third level provides an open-air event space equipped with cinema equipment. This flexible space could provide space for movie nights, concerts, farmers markets, or any other community events or programs.



STEEP A SCIENTIST’S RETREAT AND VISITOR CENTER FOR GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY AT MT. WILSON ‘Steep‘ is a proposal for a visitor center and live-work dwelling for scientists and researchers at the Mount Wilson Observatory campus. The 2 programs are separated but feature an interactive band of windows for visitors to view the researchers as they work.
