Second Floor Plan The new Sprott environment encourages interaction with professors and peers. The main aspects of the design include areas dedicated towards classrooms, support services, professional practice, student services, a gala space and a residential/ hotel component. The pivotal point of the building contains the atrium and auditorium, allowing the students, staff and public to gather. Other main meeting spaces offer a private and close足knit interaction among the Sprott Community. A large open plaza, accessible from University Drive, descends into the main atrium space, or pivotal point. Two wings stem from that point; one which has a close relationship with Bronson containing the student services (urban front); the other wing, integrated into the campus plan, contains the classroom spaces. Classrooms are divided according to undergraduate, MBA, and professional practice levels. Student spaces, including the library, study areas, computer rooms and seminar rooms, feature an open concept plan in the bar that is parallel to Bronson Avenue.

CATHEDRAL HILL COURTYARD LIVING STUDIO 6 Fall 2012 Housing Teron Scholarship Winner Honorary Mention Getting more involved with larger projects, this studio focuses and explores the redevelopment of a vacant site on Sparks St. and Bronson Ave, better known to others as Cathedral Hill. This development consists of a condomin ium building (bachelor, 2 bedroom & 3 bedroom), three storey townhouses (three bedroom), and midrise loft housing (two/three bedrooms).

Cathedral Hill Courtyard Living Townhome & condo Development
Studio 7 required us to de足 sign a housing development in Ottawa. I chose a site on the cor足 ner of Sparks Street and Bronson `dral Hill. With a heritage Church in the centre of the site, it was important to incorporate the struc足 ture with respect and creativity.
The site had a very gentle slope which I decided to tier. Leaving ap proximately 6 meters on either side of the church, I emphasized the struc ture by adding several platforms that lead from Sparks Street to Queen Street. Three building types were used in my design: three bedroom town houses; two bedroom lofts,
and one to two bedroom apart ments in the tower . I wanted to have low rise buildings along the church to allow some emphasis to remain, and a highrise in the corner of Bay Street and Queen Street. I de cided to design and place a tower on this site due to the central down town location, and I also wanted to
take advantage of the beauti ful view towards the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills. A highrise on this site allows density and it !"#$% &'#% ()% *('+% '+,% -./!)% 0!/.(1% wonderfully. There are various pathways and courtyards cre ated within the site to allow a sense of community and warmth.

02 02 When a city is not bound by naturally formed barriers it tends to sprawl outwards. Land is always less valuable further away from downtown, which results in bigger houses for relatively less money. This is a world wide phenomenon that is plaguing every city; people are traveling everywhere by car, the sense of community diminishes, and extinc tion of human to human interactions within a neighborhood. Modulation Mixed Use Con do development is designed and marketed to attract suburban dwellers back to the ur ban scene. It is designed to be a much bet ter alternative to the distant and irrelevant suburban neighborhoods for those who are downsizing and families with small children.
