CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA
Expected Completion: Summer 2015
Specialty Care and Outpatient Facility 130,000 SF Budget: $49mm
I worked on the design team for this project, in additon to schematic, design development and construction document phases of the project. The façade is comprised of a curtain wall with varied colored glass and fritted panels that create a pleasing and calming effect for the users as they enter the building. The interior lobby and waiting area contains “pods” for both children’s play zones and interior plantings. The design intent is to create an environment that makes hospital visits a more welcoming and comfortable environment, and to ease the minds of the patients, their parents and the hospital staff.
TRIBECA LINKSPACE HOTEL Competition
With Steven Guerrisi
NEW YORK, NY
Located within an established artistsâ€™ community in TriBeCa, New York City, the LinkSpace Hotel offers artists, musicians, dancers and meditators an opportunity to collaborate by way of a unique social networking system integrated into the design of the hotel. The users have a choice between using the system to share their workspaces with those who have a similar interest within their creative medium, or by changing their privacy settings to use the workspace privately to concentrate or meditate in solitude. The interface and spaces are designed to accommodate the possibility of guests exchanging and developing ideas with those they have never met, breaking down the typical social barriers of a hotel, creating a realm of unexpected encounters and ventures.
