The structural system is made out of a Steel Frame work, an intensive green roof rooďŹ ng system, concrete panel ooring and re-inforced steel universal columns system, the columns on the basement are at 7.2mx7.2m structural grid to hold up the pavillions and gardens.

Model For House Design Salford Quays 2009 University of Manchester

This project was my ďŹ rst major architectural project in my university educational background. We were given the task to develop a house for a single family on the dock of Salford Quays. The design was inspired by the waves of the dock to replicate a form, that would concede in its three levels to allow maximum sunlight because it was placed in such a narrow site. Ligh was important for this project, and my atmospheric work was an experiment to the inuence of light to my architectural designs.

In modern day society, a personal branding of your work is important, and all the more important to be recognised on the internet with such work. I wanted to tap into the potential of this new market of advertising for architects, and designed my own personal website.

It contains my personal blog where i talk about my design interests, it has on average 150 hits a month.

It also contains plenty of space for my portfolio, so there is a place on the internet where anyone in the world at any time can view my work.

It contains a place for my any computer in .pdf ďŹ le.
