UK Prefabricated Housing This is the project I am currently working on in the team of two with Neurohr Heike. Rational House is a new city dwelling for the 21st century that provides quality homes at affordable costs, and addresses the urban planning issues which confront many cities worldwide. The initiative responds to a society with changing needs by creating prefabricated and highly flexible family homes for people to live in and own.

We are currently developing three other sites using similar principles, and I am fully responsible for design development and planning application for two of them.

Prototype at Biscay Road


As part of their Housing Development Programme, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham are looking to develop several sites using the Rational House. Recently we submitted a planning application for the first site - the Spring Vale which will deliver 10 new homes. The size of the dwellings ranges from 1 bedroom flats to 3 bedroom houses ensuring a balanced mix of tenure and occupancy. All dwellings fully comply with London Housing Design Guidelines standards and Lifetime Homes standards. The height of the proposed development has been carefully considered to maximise the potential of the site while minimising the impact on existing buildings. The new block of flats will terminate the view down Porten Road and complete the street frontage in a consistent manner. A study of the surrounding built context has revealed a strong use of white window frames and door surrounds, in combination with brick and/or render facade treatments. These facade principles will be applied to the new development. The new scheme will improve the visual appearance of the Spring Vale Estate and will utilise an area that is underused at present. The scheme delivers added benefits of open space and enhanced streetscape for the site and the wider community.

GLUKHOVO Moscow, Russia Masterplan of the residential development, elevational studies On this project we were working with AECOM Moscow, whose responsibility was to communicate with the client. From our side we had to develop the concept masterplan, typologies and elevations for two pilot blocks. Our team consisted of two people: Vaughan Andrerson and me, and my knowledge of Russian building regulations and housing standards helped to channel the design in the right direction and avoid missteps on initial stages of the design. The design of the Glukhovo Concept Masterplan generates a unique and highly attractive destination that successfully balances the provision of a middensity residential environment with retaining a strong relationship with nature through quality public realm and intelligent planning. STRONG PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIONS The public realm strategy ensures that the Glukhovo provides a rich network of diverse public spaces, each with individual character, scale and formality. NETWORK OF KEY ROUTES A framework of key routes will encourage street life and activity. These create permeability by connecting the series of interconnected spaces and strengthens them by reinforcing the hierarchy of movement: • Horseshoe boulevard • Green spine • Network of shared public spaces NETWORK OF ACCENTS A number of taller buildings establish a network of accents throughout the scheme. These sit within the larger blocks to allow for strong diversity of overall massing with a non-homogenous distribution of building heights across the site. The landmark building elements support views, anchor key spaces and assist with orientation of key routes. CHANGE IN SCALE ACROSS THE SITE The unattractive 8 storey development to the north of the site and the mature woodland to south represent two significantly different scales which the development needs to address. LIVING AT HIGH DENSITY Open courtyards and point block will be the defining feature of living at Glukhovo. The proposal seeks to create an exemplar project for suburban living. 8

BAKU SPORTS VILLAGE Baku, Georgia Preliminary Concept Masterplan This project was led by AECOM landscape studio while I was responsible for the masterplanning side of it. Baku sports village is inspired by the unique qualities of the site’s landscape, and its visual relationship with the Caspian Sea. The design elegantly integrates architecture, landscape, sports and play into an iconic forest park. Smaller architectural elements are sensitivity placed on the site to minimize the impact to the existing trees, and work in harmony with the topography. This then allows the larger sports venues to rise above the forest, creating an impressive elevation from the south whilst maximizing views over the coast. The wrestling hall and velodrome are positioned to mark the entrances of the village and to complement the uses that surround them. The hotel is built in 3 connected blocks with different heights creating the opportunity to accommodate a restaurant with terraces on the roof top. In contrast to the sports venues and the hotel, the spa and villas are designed to blend into the forested slopes of the site. The landscape forms an integral part of the way people experience the site. As a basic principle the existing trees will be protected where possible and reinforces. Key: 1. 4000 seat Velodrome 2. Economy range 150 bed hotel for 300 athletes. Restaurant on top floor with 2 floors underground parking. 3. 10 cottages including 2 of VIP units. 4. 2000 seat wrestling hall including 50m swimming pool for training including SPA, and athletes massage rooms. 5. 2 Grass hockey fields 1 for training, the other for matches, capacity for approximately 500-1000 spectators. 6. Approximately 2000 sqm Federations offices within the Velodrome. Management offices will be located within the hotel complex. 7. Public square and open air gym. 8. Public Parking 9. 1 and 2 story public Restaurant. 10. Children’s entertainment center with indoor and outdoor facilities 11. Football field capacity for 100 spectators. 12. Bicycle workshop & tuning zones & pavilions. 13. Paintball 14. Climbing wall 15. Archery

RIO 2016. OLYMPIC MASTERPLAN Brazil Games and Legacy Masterplans When I just joined AECOM I worked a considerable amount of time on this project as part of a big multidisciplinary team. AECOM’s submission of the masterplan for the largest of Rio’s four Olympic clusters covers 120 hectares and and will create a long-term sporting legacy through a national Olympic Training Centre. Similar to AECOM’s work in London, the project for Rio outlines the park’s Games-time operation and long term usage. In “Olympic Games mode”, the design ensures the best conditions for the staging and operation of the sports event. In addition to the design of public spaces and back-of-house areas, AECOM designed permanent and temporary sports venues for the Games.In “Legacy Mode”, it ensures the feasibility of new developments in a sustainable manner. The masterplan sets out plans for a new urban district to be developed in the years following the Games. The urban plan also includes the transition from “Olympic Games Mode” to “Legacy Mode” while conserving the site’s environmental features. After the Games, this group of venues will form South America’s first Olympic Training Centre and will become a reference in discovering and developing sporting talent.

DONBASS ARENA Doneck, Ukraine Multi-purpose arena and commercial development Tender This project was implemented by the AECOM Sports and UD Studio. On this particular project the fact that I speak Russian unabled us to better communicate with the client and deliver the project on time. Obviously, the knowledge of local specificities had a big impact on the design. My responsibilities included planning of the commercial part, parking, putting the documents together etc. The overall concept for the Donbass Forum aims to create a thriving destination that combines the attractions of sports events, entertainment and retail on one site. It’s proximity to the Donbass Arena stadium will also promote the creation of a larger sports and entertainment destination within Donetsk. The integration of the retail around the perimeter of the arena aims to activate the arena concourse on nonevent days and to maximize the number of visitors to the shopping mall when events are held within the arena. Careful consideration has been given to the planning to avoid overwhelming the retail units with excessive crowds by locating the arena access points away from the shopping mall itself. The major entertainment and retail elements have been located around a new east plaza opposite the Donbass Arena, including the aquarium, large retail anchor, music venue and nightclub. On the western side, the main VIP entrance and everyday “front door� of the arena will present a more formal civic face onto Artema street.

HUNTINGDONSHIRE DESIGN GUIDE Huntingdonshire, UK Design Guidelines On these design guidelines for the shire of Huntingdon we colaborated with the planning team. We splited the document into three chapters - Context and Local Distinctiveness; Design Guidance itself; and Implementation, where we developed an imaginary site applying design principles explained in the document. The Design Guide sets out important design principles and explains the key requirements of the Huntingdonshire District Council. It has been designed as a manual to inform and inspire anyone with an interest in the design and development process, and will be a material consideration to be taken into account by the Council when determining planning proposals.

Europaallee, Office Building Zurich Competition This was the first project I worked on when I joined Allies and Morrison. My duties included development of the design as part of the team as well as production of all visualisations. Overall Concept: Initial design idea has derived from the principles of the given masterplan as well as from the contextual identity of the neighbourhood. Building picks up directions of the diagonal avenue and Le Corbusier street transversal to it. Its volume is clearly and dynamically articulated, but at the same time it complies with the grain size of adjacent buildings. The building gradually shifts from the west to the east pointing towards the river and adjacent public space, creating a vector for movement flow. East facade facing Europaallee creates strong and articulated frontage, which ‘secures’ public space from the railway. Simultaneously, the ground floor is open and permeable towards the railway, linking the street with the platform, becoming a part of the transport interchange. Design of the ground floor ensures achievement of a maximum length for window displays and cafes. The shifting volumes are arranged in a way to open up the northern part of the building towards the sunlight, and at the same time to protect the southern part from the excessive sunlight. This shift also allows the creation of landscaped roof gardens. The irregular shape of the site and the required tree line results in a specific floor plan with an open central core with 8 lifts serving two blocks. This arrangement allows a very flexible and future-oriented marketing strategy and can be used both by a single tenant or by a few (up to 4 tenants per floor). In the middle of the building an atrium with escape stairs is arranged. It allows additional daylight in and supports the sustainability strategy for the building. The façade combines the traditional idea of the box window with options in a choice of materials for a single element. Repetition of similar façade components wrap the entire building, but each one is individually adjusted respecting the building orientation elements are modified from noisy or sunny sides. Detailing of the bay ensures continuous natural light and ventilation. Uniformity and consistency in colours of the elements gives a feel of sculptural and elegant look of the building from afar. 16

Proposals for a new City Centre Park in Leeds UK The client appointed Allies and Morrison to do a feasibility study of the Park in Leeds and the possibility of its extension to the Development Site, that will be presented on the pages below. I worked on this project in a team of two: Nicola Zech and me, developing the design from the initial concept stage of the overall masterplan to the detailed work on typologies and internal layouts of the residential units, preparing the project for planning application. The area to the south of the River Aire has traditionally been industrial in character. The large warehouses and factory units were built in response to the needs of industry and commerce as they arose. With the decline of traditional industries, the nature of this area has changed and continues to do so. The long term vision for the area is to transform it into a distinctive, vibrant, well-connected and sustainable business and residential community which has at its heart a new City Centre Park. The new park will act as a catalyst for regeneration and provide the context for redevelopment. It will also help to improve connections between the surrounding communities. The Development Site at Chadwick Street lies adjacent to this area to the south-east.

Residential Development Chadwick Street, Leeds, UK Outline proposals The proposed residential development is located adjacent to the area covered by the South Bank Masterplan for Leeds City Centre using land previously occupied by Yorkshire Chemicals and adjacent to the Carlsberg Brewery. The site consists of two parcels of land, one between Chadwick Street and Black Bull Street and the other between Black Bull Street and Cudbear Street, and bounded at the south by Hunslet Lane. There is also a small parcel of land to the west of Cudbear Street. Black Bull Street, which is three lanes southbound and Hunslet Lane, which is four lanes two way form part of the strategic vehicular movement around the city centre. The site is approximately 3.5 hectares in area. It is principally level and has been cleared in preparation for remediation and re-development.

3 bedroom house

The brief is to provide new city centre residential accommodation through the development of two, three and four bed family town houses, with a minimum number of apartments, and retail and community uses. The proposals will form an outline application with the extent defined by a number of Parameter Plans, but is supported by a Design Code. The illustrative masterplan describes a solution that could be produced based on these. The overall scheme provides Leeds with a new kind of residential model: that of city centre family housing. The scale and density is deliberately urban rather than suburban with legible streets and open spaces expected in this context. Connectivity: New public pedestrian and cycle routes are provided across both parts of the site in an east/west orientation linking Clarence Dock with Cudbear Street, introducing controlled crossings on Black Bull Street. Two connections to the north are also provided, linking into the future redevelopment of the adjacent Carlsberg Brewery sites, and beyond to the River Aire, the proposed new park and the City Centre. Communal open space: This shared space is fenced with railings and gates to provide a secure and well maintained garden space with dedicated play areas for small children. This will be planted with a number of mature trees to give shared landscape to all the properties that line it.

The Wynd Masterplan & Letchworth Town Centre Implementation Plan UK Most of my time at Allies and Morrison was dedicated to the Town Centre Implementation Plan and Masterplan for the Wynd that were developed by joint venture between us and Urban Practitioners on behalf of the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation in response to the changes in both the local and national economy, which have resulted in the need for a new approach to regeneration in the town centre. The overarching aim of the project was to ensure that the town centre is of a quality that befits the world’s first Garden City, which meets the everyday needs of local residents and businesses, provides an attractive location and continues to be an examplar in Garden City living, with a sustainable base and the best of both countryside and town. The Town Centre Implementation Plan provides an overarching strategy for the development of key sites within the town centre and strategic objectives. The Wynd Masterplan provides more detailed guidance for the Wynd area on land uses, movement, scale and massing, frontages, green and open spaces, public realm and parking. It also considers how any new development could be delivered, including phasing and delivery partners. They both were informed by a series of public consultation events and stakeholder input. Timeline illustrates the key points in the programme where public consultation was planned. Town centre issues: - Letchworth has different community profile in south/ west and north/east - Two types of High Street: Aspirational and experiencebased and Convenience led with cheaper retail. Letchworth is the latter - These have suffered more in recession and rapid growth of internet shopping - Service and distinctive offer required for Letchworth - Need an evening economy focused on the successful cinema - Public realm investment just completed in Letchworth a major plus - Improving the experience is key

CULTURAL HUB: Cultural and education hub around a refurbished/redeveloped Plinston Hall and Grammar School with some new supporting housing development to the rear 5. THE WYND: Three options for the future of the Wynd area progressed through a masterplan

A comprehensive consultation and engagement programme has been developed for the initial stage of the Wynd Masterplan and Letchworth Town Centre Implementation Plan, to help ensure that the local community’s views are taken into consideration at the earliest possible stage and can inform the development of the options for each strand of the project: - The initial project shop exhibition in the Arcade; - A series of eight themed presentations and workshops; - A walking audit; - Community events and activities, including a market stall at local schools; - Presentations to local groups; - Feedback to the Next Steps website project email address; - A design symposium, to provide a hands on design and planning session for key stakeholders.

Whiteboard with my axonometric view of the Wynd area for people to scribble their ideas directly onto the image

At the design symposium I was a sketcher and used a graphics tablet connected to a laptop and projected onto a large screen so that the key stakeholders could see their ideas as they emerged. The ‘unlocking the potential of the Wynd’ spatial session provided focus in the final session of the day on the masterplan area at the centre of Letchworth. The presentation looked at the spatial characteristics of the Wynd and its relationship with the immediate surrounds.

Option 1: Living – sustainable housing 1. Creation of affordable town centre living with starter homes and smaller family homes, to plug the current gap in housing provision and keep young families in the town, who contribute to the town’s health, economically and socially. 2. Use of sustainable building methods such as passive solar gain and high levels of insulation and local building materials to achieve Code for Sustainable homes 4 or 5. 3. Consideration of innovative housing methods such as eco-flat pack homes 4. Creation of a community garden for the homes that can include space for local food production 5. Help Letchworth to recapture its pioneering spirit and put it on the map again • • • •

Retain existing buildings and introduce new buildings to respond to these and help further intensify existing character Provide maximum improvement with minimum intervention Scheme can happen organically and incrementally Retain car parking to ensure a through-flow of people to support shops

Option 2a: Making and selling – Crafts and Workshops 1. Draw on the unique character and uses already in the Wyndand the original uses –workshops with direct retail element 2. Work with retail trends showing increasing demand for locally produced, independent products 3. Draw inspiration from Letchworth’s skilled manufacturing heritage 4. Create critical mass of designer/makers without pushing out existing tenants through rising rents. Simply provide high quality space for a range of businesses with a broader market appeal (both young and old, affordable and luxury) 5. Establish strong message through management and marketing, linking with DigswellArts Trust –a well respected movement with strong Garden City links 6. Inclusion of a small Co-op or People’s Supermarket, in line with Garden City principles –great for people who are time rich and on a budget


Option 2b: Making and selling - Greening 1. Establish a central garden centre with cafe based on the PetershamNurseries model in Richmond 2. Integrate with craft sales in the local area and provide cafe space in an attractive courtyard 3. Creates a strong identity to raise the profile of the area, drawing in visitors who can support the small shops 4. Greens the town centre and supports the original garden city principles, responding to comments made during consultation 5. Provides an opportunity to establish a quality restaurant (as with at PetershamNurseries) 6. Requires a strong business model and marketing 7. New courtyard housing to improve vibrancy of the area

St Peter’s College Oxford Outline Proposals Together with Nick Peri I worked on the small interventions for St.Peter’s College - part of the masterplan strategy. This masterplan has been prepared by Allies and Morrison Architects on behalf of St Peter’s College, Oxford. It sets out the principles of a masterplan for the College site. The College has grown over time in a piecemeal manner, rather than within a development framework of any kind - this has resulted in a lack of coherency across the site. This masterplan examines where the site’s strengths and weaknesses lie and how it can be improved and developed to unlock its full potential. It looks at the implications of acquiring adjacent sites and includes proposals for re-thinking the nature and character of the existing quads, and creating permeability across the site. The aim of the masterplan is to allow St Peter’s to make confident decisions on the implementation of individual proposals, in the knowledge that these, for the first time, form part of a larger overall vision for the College site. The intention is that St Peter’s be revitalised, creating a physical environment to complement the College’s achievements in other spheres. The proposals have been broken down into a series of distinct projects, some of which are fairly discrete and more easily deliverable – such as landscape projects – and others which are larger and more significant in construction terms – such as a new infill building, to facilitate a key strategic aspect of the masterplan.

Linton Quad Besse Opening Latner Building Chapel Doors Entrance Forecourt New infill building between Linton Lodge and the Chapel


2. Besse Opening A key masterplan objective is to improve connections across the site, in particular to break through the barrier formed when the Besse building was built. The location of the existing entrances and layout of the cores of these buildings lend themselves to the formation of external covered passages through the building to Mulberry Quad.

Plan of Besse Opening

3. Chapel Doors The Chapel has a dominant position within the site, sitting between Linton and Hannington Quads. However, it presents imposing blank stone facades to both quads and the entrance is a discrete entrance door off the narrow space connecting the two quads. Proposals therefore include: a new more direct entrance off the relandscaped Linton Quad; an infill building between Linton Lodge and the Chapel containing wc facilities specifically for the Chapel; New entarnce from the Linton Quad retaining the existing doorway as a secondary entrance.

Northern Gateway will be an attractive and sustainable destination for sports, leisure and business complementing the wider plans for the growth of new communities at Severalls Hospital and other sites in North Colchester. These activities will generate a wide range of jobs and be supported by a number of activities including retailing and employment. Northern Gateway will be an accessible, green location forming a welcoming and accessible gateway to Colchester. The area will have a distinctive character founded on good urban design principles, with an emphasis on creating excellent buildings, streets and spaces defi ned by high quality architecture. The area will benefit from a network of walking and cycling routes which create clear and attractive links into surrounding areas. Plan highlights the strategic position of Northern Gateway within North Essex and Colchester. The site is situated to the immediate south of the A12 which provides an important link to London and Ipswich. The new Park and Ride facility will provide a direct connection through Northern Gateway to the railway stations and the town centre.

01 Respond to the existing landscape structure The existing mature landscape is an extremely important asset and there is an opportunity to create a strong sense of place through the enhancement of the CUCKOO FARM NORTHERN GATEWAY VISION FEBRUARY 2012 landscape. This will be achieved through the reinforcement of existing routes and the creation of strong east-west and north-south connections taking a cue from field boundaries and mature field hedges and trees where possible. Northern Gateway will also respond to the existing urban landscape to ensure that development is successfully incorporated. 02 Establish a central boulevard which unifies Northern Gateway A defining move in establishing a framework for future development is the proposed creation of a generous, tree- lined central boulevard with provision for cycling. The purpose of this central spine will be to provide order and structure - framing a sequence of integrated land parcels which are attractive to developers and capable of producing good urban character.

03 Use planting to reinforce spaces and connections It is proposed that a comprehensive programme of planting is undertaken to reinforce pedestrian and cycle connections, and to create a strong parkland setting for 35 CUCKOO FARM NORTHERN GATEWAY VISION FEBRUARY 2012 development. (Creation of a network of local green infrastructure connections with Colchester urban edge, within and across the site in the form of native hedgerows and tree lines (existing and new), including a central multi- functional green space and smaller ‘pocket’ green spaces incorporating incidental play and sports facilities to reinforce the identity of the area as a sports and leisure destination; Use of development sites as temporary landscapes whilst awaiting development) 04 Promote a sustainable movement strategy The Vision for Northern Gateway is for a greater reliance on pedestrian and cycle movement: Promote streets and spaces in preference to roads, consider the replacement of the roundabout by a staggered T-junction, ensure that all uses are easily accessible, establish an integrated strategy for public transport, define a sustainable car parking strategy.

05 Establish fl exible and accessible building plots (Define a clear hierarchy of public and private space; promote active frontages which CUCKOO FARM NORTHERN GATEWAY VISION FEBRUARY 2012 contribute to an attractive street environment; large format uses should provide a41 37 clear address to streets; incorporate appropriate setbacks to accommodate tree root protection zones; identify a varied approach to scale, mass and urban grain on individual sites; ensure that individual plots could come forward in a range of alternative uses; accommodate green / open space on indvidual plots as part of a wider green infrastructure strategy; establish appropriate locations and formats for car parking; promotion of temporary informal leisure uses on sites earmarked for later phases.) 06 Define a clear framework for key buildings, spaces and views It is important that the Council promotes a clear framework for key frontages, buildings, spaces and views to ensure that individual plots respond to the overarching vision for the area. Particular emphasis will be placed on key buildings or elevations that terminate and frame views, and built frontages that enclose spaces and streets.

Swindon Town Centre Masterplan UK Allies and Morrison Urban Practitioners developed a new masterplan to provide a clear long term framework for development in Swindon town centre. To ensure this masterplan is robust and reflects the needs and aspirations of local businesses and residents we involved key stakeholders in Swindon in shaping and driving the plan forward, through a series of three workshop events. The results of the workshop events will inform the development of a town centre masterplan which will be published for public consultation.

Me sketching ideas of the key stakeholders during the Workshop Planning Swindon Together with business leaders. During this session we were trying to develop one part of the masterpan of Swindon.


PEOPLE We have analysed key socio economic characteristics and trends in Swindon together with the aspirations set out in the Community Strategy to gain an understanding of the local population MOVEMENT Ease of movement in and around a town centre can have a significant influence on whether shoppers and visitors will choose to come Successful town centres have an attractive network of streets and public spaces which provide a pleasant environment for pedestrians. We have analysed Swindon’s movement network for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists in order to provide a summary of the key issues and opportunities BUSINESSES AND SHOPS We have analysed Swindon’s economy in order to understand the challenges presented by the wider national and international economic climate, Swindon’s underlying level of resilience, the key trends in all of the major economic sectors and the major sectors and the opportunities for the future PLANS Swindon is a dynamic place, and there are several plans for new development with the town centre. We have mapped these sites on the page overleaf. These sites have been identified in Swindon Borough Council’s adopted Swindon Central Area Action Plan (AAP). This masterplanning process offers the opportunity to review and shape many of these proposals and will provide a basis to update the AAP in the future

The adjacent plan illustrates the key challenges for Swindon identified through our review. These issues and opportunities were discussed at the business and community workshop events, where participants helped to shape the town centre masterplan. Key challenges for Swindon include: • • • • • • •

reinforcing the green network; attracting new cultural and leisure uses; celebrating and promoting Swindon’s historic buildings and industrial heritage; creating better links with peripheral employers; improving connections with the out of town retail parks; and raising the profile and improve the image of Swindon.

North Woolwich Delivery Plan UK Tender On this project, like many others described above, I worked together with AMUP who was considered for undertaking commission for the North Woolwich Delivery Plan and aimed at producing a plan that would enable the successful transformation of the local centres in North Woolwich to sustain a self-sufficient community and which would stimulate economic regeneration across the area and contribute to a vibrant economic life. Plan articulates a deliverable and shared vision for a sustainable place, that enhances existing assets and connects to the wider area. It will be delivered through a range of viable projects and proposals designed to contribute to a vibrant economic life. Although relatively remote from major centres and constrained within its former dockland setting, North Woolwich benefits from having a significant established population centred around two distinct centres. There are an extraordinary range of economic drivers within and in close proximity to North Woolwich, including London City Airport and the riverside industrial zone. Furthermore the area is part of the wider Royal Docks and within the Green Enterprise District where the strategic focus is on building a vibrant economy focused on green enterprise as well to developing a sustainable environment that people want to live in and visit as well as work. The plan will set out the basis to realise the benefits of increased future public transport accessibility. It will also seek to identify the huge largely untapped potential associated with the dockside and river environment. Notwithstanding the constraints imposed by the airport and the riverside industry, the potential for meaningful waterside development, river transport and new connections will underpin a strategy to realise the potential of this unique resource. The delivery plan will also provide the vision and framework to help unlock the significant growth potential of the areas businesses and sites, and to ensure this potential benefits the local community and is realised so that it contributes to the creation of a high-quality urban realm. The plan will provide the necessary focus on access to education, skills and jobs. It will identify opportunities for new mixed tenure high quality housing, to be integrated with the rest of the area. The plan together with the projects will help realise the vision for North Woolwich as a sustainable neighbourhood of choice.

Project Jess, Nine Elms Parkside London, UK Design and Access Statement Duties: Elevations and diagrams The site is an existing major operational Royal Mail Group facility. It includes the London South Mail Centre and a Cluster Delivery Office. The Nine Elms Linear Park is the principle organising device for the masterplan. It runs across the site in a northeast - southwest orientation. The park is conceived of as a sequence of linked functions and activity spaces. Masterplan aims to deliver a new mixed use residential neighbourhood within Nine Elms. The site is located within an area allocated for ‘high density mixed use housing-led intensification’.Emerging planning policies support the mixed use redevelopment of the area and the promote residential led development on the site. Supporting uses including commercial, small scale retail and/or community related uses are also proposed as part of the comprehensive redevelopment of the site. A perimeter block typology forms the basis of the masterplan. Communal gardens lie at the centre of each perimeter block; these are typically raised above ground level by half or full storey to accommodate car and cycle parking beneath. These buildings are generally between 10 and 13 storeys in height. A language of differing brick facades with restrained but contrasting upper stories unifies the character of these blocks. The southern most block houses a number of uses. The relocated Royal Mail Delivery Office occupies the lower two storeys and basement. Above this lie the school, sports hall and turf pitch. These are accessed via a tall public entrance lobby facing the Park Basin. The block is completed by residential accommodation built around its northern corner and north-east elevation.

Eid Prayer Ground and Cooling Towers Doha, Qatar Detailed Proposals Duties: Development of the detailed design, internal elevations, modelling The place of community prayer, the Eid Ground is a mosque reduced to its bare essentials – a great open praying area with a qibla wall (a wall set perpedicular to the Mecca direction) with a mihrab (a niche that designates the wall as having sacred orientation). Here the people of a city can assemble for the annual Eid festivals, Eid al-fitr and Eid al-adah.The regeneration of the National Eid Prayer Ground in Doha is an opportunity for a historically appropriate yet contemporary design to offer the public an elegant and uplifting setting for Eid prayers and to initiate a new lease of life for the space which in its central location could play a greater role in the public life of the city. The design resolves the Qibla prayer geometry with the historic alignment of the surrounding streets and incorporates the ventilation shafts and escape stairs of the plant rooms below as well as public washrooms, entrance hall, Quranic Garden and a drinking fountain within the thickness of its perimeter walls. Plant room intake and exhaust vents are concealed by roof level vents and by patterned screens, recessed in the walls. The simple rendered enclosing walls are set upon a stone skirting which follows the horizontal datum line of the prayer ground and provides the top edge of a robust, rusticated base that takes up the slope of the adjacent streets. The paving pattern of the prayer space sets out the lines of the worshippers in Qatari stone, complementing the Qatari stone walls of the National Archive to the North. The Qibla wall is inscribed with an ayah from the Qur’an and is articulated by inset malqaf panels to bring light and wind through the structure. The Mihrab is a simple, rounded niche, strongly framed on the street side within a rectilinear alcove. For the Cooling Towers the design proposed a set of precast concrete elements, based on sine curves, stacked to create alternating waves across the face of the enclose which would permit air movement through the screen but limit views into the enclosure.

Office building at Grinchenka str. Kiev, Ukraine Detailed Design Area: 48 200 m2 Role: Design architect Duties: Development of initial design, layouts, elevations, sections, 3d modeling and visualization. (ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, SketchUp, 3ds Max + V-Ray, Adobe Photoshop) The project is located on a prominent site in the conservation area of the city. In order to meet the specific needs of the client the building was divided into three distinct blocks with three cores so it can be rented out to single or various tenants. Simple cubical volumes are centered around a shared courtyard and linked by translucent bridges where shared facilities are accommodated. Two storey parking is arranged in a shared basement. Elevations are organised according to a tight vertical grain of facade elements made of local stone that integrates building in the surrounding fabric. The fine vertical grain will give façades a material solidity,

Kiev, Ukraine Detailed Proposals Area: 15 900 m2 Role: Design architect Duties: Development of drawings, 3d modeling and visualization, development of presentation material for the planning approval (ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, SketchUp, 3ds Max + V-Ray, Adobe Photoshop) The site for the head office of the bank is located in conservation area of the city. This determines the postrmodern contextual character of the project. The facades proposed refer to adjacent historical listed buildings with expressive brick construction and coper roofs. The elevations are monolithic and delicate at the same time. Semi-public courtyard is orginized at its centre. The internal arrangement of the building is very flexible, allowing for different office models.

Apartment Building at Pejzazhnaya Alley Kiev, Ukraine Detailed Proposals Area: 15 900 m2 Role: Design architect Duties: Development of drawings, 3d modeling and visualization, development of presentation material for planning approval (ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, SketchUp, 3ds Max + V-Ray, Adobe Photoshop) The brief was for a landmark development which complements and enhances identity of the existing park, creating a structure which integrates well with the neighbouring historical fabric. This determined postmodern “pastiche” nature of the project. Blend of traditional medieval and contemporary architecture results in unexpected building filled with contradiction and irony. It incorporates abstract historical elements and detailing, use of stone cladding and wooden bracing. The apartment building consists of 80 luxurious apartments, rooftop terraces are equipped by swimming pools.

This proposal develops how within a second attempt to urbanise industrial workspace, architectural typologies, clusters and fabrics would need to feed on the tendency of industries to become more service based and networked and on the introduction of higher value elements such as civic buildings. Three urban-industrial patterns are developed within three districts of the integrated project in order to synergise industrial production, innovation, research and design through architectural urbanism.

4 days Workshop. University vs. Science Park Jubei, Taiwan Key actors: Biomedical Science Park and NCTU. The New Development Area is located to the North East of the existing development of the Jubei city on the western innovation corridor of Taiwan. How to develop the strategy for sustainable development that will ensure the creation of vibrant urbanity with incorporation of the Science Park and the University? The polycentric nature of the Hsinchu region has added another important node with the High Speed Rail (HSR) station which connects it to Taipei in 30 minutes. The current master plan proposal is based on a workable grid, but offers what is likely to be a rigid model for development. It proposes transport oriented development around the station with a separated CBD, university campus and bio-medical research cluster. We aim to develop the hierarchy and layering critical for the formation of an innovation environment and a high quality urban fabric, producing a strategy for the area that is rooted in the pattern of traditional block development in neighbouring cities of Taipei and Jubei. We focus on three elements that can combine to provide a more effective urban innovation: Mobility Network, Pattern and Scale, and Sectional Relationships. The proposal subdivides the area into urban blocks that follow a hierarchy of structure, locating more public and commercial uses on a public realm and more intimate and privileged spaces towards its interior. Further, to ensure that the built environment evolves into desirable urban quarters, we demonstrate ways of locating buildings within the urban block and suggest their preferred sectional relationships. We attempt to make an adaptable yet differentiated urban fabric which can support the evolving networks by providing high quality living and working spaces.

Library and learning center Kiev, Ukraine Area - 12 067 sq.m Fourth year This project explores the idea of architecture beyond buildings - architecture as an extended landscape. Existing hill in Kiev has been transformed into a library. It acquires new meaning - as a valuable civic facility, which becomes an indispensable component in the civic network of the city, and a catalyst for the regeneration of the area. Exterior of the hill is redefined into a beautifully landscaped park where borders between outside and inside are disolved. Different city levels are mediated by the landscape. Top of the park is a library roof with a latern that allows natural light in. Interior is centered around a spiral ramp, which links internally lower street and top roof park. Reading places are arranged along this ramp and lit from above. Ramp also connects reading halls along the section. Internal spaces are gradually differentiated: from public and accessible to all (such as art-cafe with a terrace or a book shop) to privilleged reading rooms for members only and secluded places for individual work. This projects aims to challenge typology of library in its traditional sense, and tries to suggest new type of physical space integrated into both nature and city fabric offering large variety of activities: from reading and media studies to outdoor sports and gardenning.

Skyscaper Third year This sarcastic project is in a way my respond to the world’s obsession with both: possibilities of parametric modeling in architecture and sustainability issues:-). This gracious 45-floors residential tower is wrapped in a special photovoltaic ‘skin-screen’ with regulating daylight holes that enables a provision of natural ventilation, a protection from ultraviolet and a minimization of heat gain and loss. A curved outline and organic volume establishes this skyscaper as a landmark design for Kiev - a striking addition to the city skyline - building standing at a new urban plaza. Variety of appartment types from affordable flats to luxurious penthouses aims at ensuring social mix.

Lizard House Single family house. Second year. The idea of this single-family house is an attempt to metaphorically mimick the features of an animal, where it becomes both the symbol of well-being and a morphological determinant. The main spine of the building is a main organisational element of the structure. It has both - a symbolical form and a function - the nerve centre of the physical space. All rooms branch out from this top lit spine, and each one is rotated in accordance with orientation (e.g. bedrooms are oriented to the east-south, while study rooms - towards the north). All rooms are separated by ‘ribs’ of the skeleton, and as you move along the spine they are differentiated from public to private, from the entrance hall towards the tail, where the master bedroom is located. Each pad of the lizard accomodates different premises: 2
