Turfland Mall

Lexington, KY | 2012

This site was an abandoned mall that was scheduled for demolition. The task was to make a more profitable consumer centered shopping area. The new mall incorporates green practices through cost-efficient options for managing pollution runoff and protecting clean water. This green infrastructure solution saves taxpayers money and benefits the community by properly managing water where it falls. Shopping centers that feature green spaces and lush plants by stores correlate with 33% more profit than a typical shopping center. The layout of the green space is arranged so that the parking lot runoff is delegated and infiltrated back into the water table. This shopping center will not only cater to shoppers but also provide a park for the surrounding neighborhood.

EPA Rain Work

Lexington, KY | 2012

This design was entered in the EPA’s 2nd annual Campus RainWorks Challenge for university students. The site’s green infrastructure uses vegetation, soils, and natural processes to manage stormwater and create healthier urban environments. While single-purpose gray stormwater infrastructure is largely designed to move urban stormwater away from the built environment, green infrastructure uses vegetation and soil to manage rainwater where it falls. This site had flooding problems, so with this design that brings the Wolfcreek back to the surface, the flooding issue would be resolved, and a series of Wiers could provide a beautiful landscape for the surrounding communities.

Louisville Waterfront

Louisville, KY | 2013

Louisville’s Waterfront is a vibrant and ever-changing landscape, with a number of projects underway to expand the waterfront. The popularity from projects in the past like the Big Four Pedestrian & Bicycle Bridge and the Lincoln Memorial have promoted further development along the Louisville Waterfront District. This design features a master plan for Riverview Park in Southwest Jefferson County. Projects encompass the past as well as the future, with management of the Belle of Louisville a prime example of protecting our community’s history. This site was designed to be a Waterfront exercise park, aiming towards a healthier Kentucky.

Kentucky Winery

Ridge, KY | 2010

This winery, inspired by an old Italian style winery, is located in the heart of Kentucky surrounded by lush forests. Based off analysis maps, the different kinds of grapes are specifically grown where they will flourish. Location is the most important factor with establishing a small winery. Wineries usually have a design plan that includes areas for the various stages of winemaking, for instance, receiving the wine, fermenting, and bottling. Properly designed buildings and a courtyard will make wine producing easier and enhance the experience for the guest. This simple layout is the most effective and efficient to make a tourist driven winery. The vegetation growing on site consists of Kentucky native plants that are also grown in the upper regions of Italy, including cypresses, spruces, and cork oak trees. This winery will serve as an educational and economical opportunity for the community.






The grapes are harvested by hand and brought inside to start the winemaking process.

The grapes then are crushed/pressed and destemmed to a liquid purĂŠe.

Then the grapes, yeast, sugar, and preservatives are mixed into a vat.

As the grapes must ferment, carbon dioxide forces the skin and stems to the surface of the lid.

The wine is transferred into small oak barrels, this is to age the wine and to impart complexity and depth.

Then the wine is carefully bottled to prevent any unnecessary contamination.
