This portfolio is a collection of work since the beginning of my Architecture studies at De Montfort University, Leicester. It displays a variety of skills from digital aspects to physical modelling and capabilities, I explore and experiment with numerous materials , forms and presentation style, which is inherent for a young student in architecture.

COMMUNITY MOABIT LIBRARY
The site was set in Moabit opposite to the main railway station in Berlin where it brings millions of passengers each year. The site itself was historic that was an old prison, now a historical public park enclosed by 5 metre- high walls. There are structural elements that were preserved, restored or enhanced the prison history. During this site visit, I have observed the isolation of the park and seems uninviting. It was also not visible to people due to high enclosed walls. My aim of the project is to transform the isolated site into a place whilst the retaining the existing walls. The design of public library programme offers people to gain free access to books and digital sources for research, while at the same time providing a sense of place for gathering. The primary design strategy was the slope plane from the landscape to the edge of the roof to maintain the openness of the site. The two lawns levels that represented the former prison wings were turned into water to present natural and calmness of the site, opposite of isolation. To enhance the area more of a social space, the library has a greenhouse space where people could explore or take their books and read. It also has a museum space of how books were made by printing press machines. These two building spaces can only be accessed within the library from first and basement level.

The green landscape that integrate to the library features graphic lines of concrete that divides the surface into a series of zigzagging pedestrian paths. The dividing surfaces showcases ornamental grass and the public is encouraged to explore this green roof. The texture of the ornamental grass lead the eye from the ground to the sky.

SOCIAL HOUSING SAFFRON VILLAGE
This studio project is at Saffron lane in Leicester. The area is bounded on one side by an existing recent development by East Midlands homes and Saffron neighbourhood. The surrounding houses is a mixture of semi-detached terraces and later 20th century social housing development. The intention of this project is to design a new low cost social housing development on the 12 acre site. Social housing are provided for people on low incomes in which can be affordable. The masterplan scheme for a new estate comprised of 48 units including apartment buildings and terraced houses. These properties are for one person or shared living. The site features a playground area, communal spaces and allotments. The terraced houses and apartments features a striking design and thoughtful interiors.

VISUALISATION AZUMA HOUSE
The aim of this assignment was to model and produce realistic rendered views of the Azuma house. Using variety of software packages to produce high quality outputs efficiently and effectively.
JUNOâ€™S GARDEN SUNKEN GARDEN
The brief for this project was to produce an allotment garden situated in Leicester at De Montfort Square. The main aspect of this design are the pots that serve as meandearing elements within the landscape . Inside these concrete components are subdividng allotments. These pocket landscapes encourage the public to visit and experience the full three dimensionality of the park. Finally, pavement and plan patterns along the entire site, giving it a sense of of totality, continuity and ultimate harmony to the park.
LIVE- WORK TERRACED HOUSE
The brief was to create a terraced house between existing houses . The requirement were to design a house for a family of 5 who would work and live in the same house. The husband is an architect and the wife works as a bridal dresser. They have two small children and they all live together with grandma. The husband has his own working space in the house and the wife owns a wedding dress shop built with the terraced house.
