Rethinking Human Performance Traditional and Unconventional Offices on the River Eugene, OR //Winter 2013- Present with Brook Muller

Recognizing the separateness of knowledge workers and green space (key resources for a thriving economy) in Eugene, this office design attempts to put creative minds in healthy, invigorating space to enhance creativity, productivity, and health. A balance of traditional and unconventional office environments offer both open, collaborative work areas and secluded, private nooks to meet a variety of needs. Building performance is measured by increased health, happiness, and mental acuity of occupants.

Environment

Taking advantage of views of the river and vegetated vistas, narrow 40 foot wide footprints orient 80% of work spaces to take advantage of daylight, views, and natural ventilation. Workspaces are rhythmically placed to directly integrate workers with water, air movement, or sunlight or passively highlight views. Untreated heavy timber framing allows for the movement of phytoncides (wood particles) to simulate the stress lowering effects of forest bathing.

Center for Personal and Ecological Enrichment A Field Station for Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Malheur, Oregon//Fall 2012 with Jenny Young

A series of load bearing, parallel gabion walls frame views, define edges, physically ground buildings in place and organize a series of vegetated internal courtyards. Simple structures are composed of heavy, womb-like public spaces that bookend brighter, more open private spaces. Field station becomes a sheltering, healing place to rejuvenate after a day of being exposed to the elements on the refuge.

Environment

A compact set of new buildings, simple in plan and narrow in footprint, complement two existing structures. A minimal material palette encourages the use of local resources. Appropriately sized windows allow for effective use of daylight in private spaces and top light emphasizes tactile materials in public spaces. Additionally, structures fronting the canal are lofted on stilts to address the seasonality of wetland flooding.

Gilmore Hall Lab Building Addition For the biological and ecological engineering department Oregon State University//Winter 2012 with Ihab Elzeyadi

A biophilic design facilitates the practice of scientific research from knowledge generation, to application, to the final result.This wet and dry lab addition to the existing building (along with minor renovations to old building) explores the relationship between old and new.

Environment

Three sides of existing building become the interior walls for the new addition, reducing the use of virgin materials. Natural light, natural ventilation, a green roof, low embodied energy materials, and a human engineered wetland help this building achieve an energy use intensity (EUI) rating of 29, placing it below the average for typical office buildings

Live/Work Housing Complex

Series of homes with offices at the base of Skinner’s Butte Eugene, OR// Fall 2011 with Jim Tice

Intended for the artistic type, this series of duplexes terraces towards Skinner’s Butte. To satisfy the preferences of all artists, this complex offers the duality of quiet, secluded residences sunken into the hillside with 2nd floor office space or more urban, accessible residences above street front gallery space. Double height circulation space offers a space to showcase books and art. Duplexes are set in vegetated space surrounded by water features to enhance the creative environment.

39

SITE PLAN

Environment

This complex features a rainwater theme organized by a system of roofs sloped towards runnels that travel the length of the property, accumulating in a bioretention pond at street level. All residences face south, ma ximizing internal heat gains. Spacious, double height hallways promote the use of natural ventilation during the summer and fill this gallery space with light.

Bird Watching Space for Two

Intended to fit between trees Fall 2008 with Renee Davids + Cesar Lopez Negrete

Mapping of a Rothko painting inspired the design of a 20’x20’x20’ birdwatching space. Through analysis of connections between bands of color, interlocking platforms are used to create space and seating. Ideas of tensegrity and tension provide a structural framework and a method of creating protection from natural elements.

55

Environment

Intended to fit between the bottom of tree trunks, the structure allows birdwatchers a direct interaction with light, water, wind, and birds, while strategically providing spaces from shelter and protection. Wooden structure blends in with nature and is a more sustainable material choice than concrete.


Open Air Cinemas

Inspired by the analysis of Bladerunner Berkeley Marina, Berkeley, CA// Spring 2008 with Keith Plymale + Molly Reichert

The mapping of light and dark periods in Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner inspired the cadence of light and shadow created by the wrapping structures. Paths weave in and out of these spaces to promote the cinematic experience and the sense of rela xation or confinement and panic experienced in the film.

57

Environment

Use of existing pier structure for base from which structures are secured. Open air structures enlighten visitors as to the power of light and wind to enhance the cinematic experience.

Wandering Goat Re-Design With L. Jones and J. Yarish Eugene, OR//Spring 2012 with Ihab Elzeyadi

Minimal lighting and acoustic retrofits maintain the gritty, light industrial, somber character of a local coffee shop while making the environment more comfortable. Skylights and electric lighting bring more balanced lighting levels. Decorative panels provide a functional backdrop and lower reverberation time, making the space more acoustically comfortable.

All retrofits were implemented to maintain a minimal environmental footprint. Minor interventions reduce the need for construction. Lighting interventions enhance the levels of daylighting helping to lower electrical costs. Electric lights created from salvaged materials also speak to the character of the clientele.

Eco-meter

Meauring the environmental ramifications of framing materials With A. Ingmire and L. Rocchelli Spring 2012 with Erin Moore

The Eco-meter functions as both a beautiful piece of art and a tool to help architect and client make a more well informed decision when choosing the primary structural material of a building. Designed to sit on a desk, a slide bar moves to highlight information about a material’s CO2 emissions, global warming potential, scientific processes, and the potential for reuse.

Environment

The tool was constructed from salvaged materials. Roof brackets, old wood scraps, and screws come together in a visually stimulating way. The tool itself helps designers and clients choose a more environmentally appropriate building material.
