Set within a larger context of urban regeneration masterplan, the scheme is promoting a community oriented social programme at the heart of Glasgow. The cluster of buildings positioned around the market and main plaza relate to the existing context and form an urban village setting, where needed amenities and communal facilities are provided within the block. The building is intended for the use of affordable housing and comprises of 6 flat typologies, total 32 flats. Insertion of a plinth feature at ground floor level allowed to integrate retail amenities, front and back access and the terrace for residents.

To Learn: study library

St. Andrews, Scotland

Library is located in historic town of St. Andrews, east coast of Scotland. It was design to serve as an academic library for local university. The building is taking advantage of the sloping site and employs reinforced concrete slabs and steel columns for load bearing elements. Orientation of the building and its cycloid shape roof allows natural light to diffuse and penetrate further with the help of gull-wing light fixtures. South facade was ‘opened up’ letting in high quantity of sunlight to be absorbed and stored in exposed concrete slabs and plinth. Recessed windows and louvers give ability to control excess light or heat.

To Gather: house of worship

Inveraray, Scotland

The House of Worship explores main aspects of a congregational space of a Roman Catholic church. Glulam structure helps to focus the light onto central nave to illuminate the occupants and provide a sense of occasion. Entrance courtyard provides space for outdoors assembly prior to the entry to church and frames the views of the lake and mountains. With limited amount of glazing, octagonal church provides a shelter from often severe weather conditions.

Constructive Shamanism 2017

Laukupe, Lithuania

In summer 2017, I participated in a timber construction workshop led by Estonian architect Vilen Kunnapu and his son painter August Kunnapu. The workshop focused around erecting a timber tower that consisted of three levels with room for solitary contemplation, group gathering and observing the surrounding territory. Materials used were impregnated timber columns, joists, cladding, concrete foundation and steel connections. The idea behind this workshop was to combine logical and intuitive, professional and vernacular, conscious and subconscious creative principles to guide design and construction process.

Attracting the final element of primary structure

Lateral stability partly relies on the triangular shape of entire structure (load bearing beams and columns) that is further reinforced by cladding

Hanging pieces of rope with weights attached from all four corners to adjust and establish the correct column angle

EASA ‘Hospitality - Finding the Framework’ 2017

Fredericia, Denmark

This time in EASA I took a role of ‘Helper’, working alongside the organizers and making sure things run as smooth as possible in all five ‘departments’ each responsible for different aspects of the event. Myself with five others were assigned for Toolbox: logistics, tools, fixings and materials. This gave me an opportunity to look at operations from different point of view, providing my assistance and knowledge to participants of over 20 workshops. On my free time I have helped build and transport few timber pavilions that were left in Fredericia for the use of community.

EASA ‘Not Yet Decided’ 2016

Nida, Lithuania

During my first year in EASA I was selected among few to be part of the Scottish national team that was sent to the event in July. The workshop I participated in was called ‘Sun Order’. In the time of two weeks our team was involved in designing and constructing the timber pavilion on the beach by the lagoon. First week we have recorded and analyzed the unique setting of Curonian Spit in Nida and second week the generated concept took shape on the site. The purpose of this pavilion is to attract a by-passer to come inside or around the structure and explore the patterns created by sunlight, cladding and orientation of this triangular pavilion.

K.A.D. ‘Traveling Architectural Workshops’ 2016

Zibalai, Lithuania

K.A.D is an annual summer event held in number of villages and small towns across Lithuania. The structures are designed and constructed within one week. During the process, teams of practicing and studying architects and urban planners collaborate with local youth to collect their thoughts and come up with ideas addressing the lack of recreational facilities and a sense of ‘place’ for the young. With the help of volunteer children and teenagers an empty lawn was turned into colorful and cozy public space. The result is a sequence of objects, grouped around a new path leading to the open ‘square’. Local farmer has provided us with timber and some of the tools.

To Shelter: ‘The back Seat’ 2014

Wiston Lodge, Scotland

This was a live build project based in south of Scotland at the premises of an old lodge now converted into center for children with learning difficulties. All parts of the structure were pre-fabricated off site and assembled in approximately 6 hours. The main purpose of this seating pavilion is to be an attractive and fun enclosure of space for the residents of Wiston Lodge. One of main construction features was the use of 4 timber joint techniques that resulted in quick construction with no need of power tools or metal fixings.

Carpenter Assistant 2016 - 2017

London, England

During the period of 8 months I was involved in the construction of Dorsett City Hotel in central London, Aldgate. The first month of training gave me an insight of job specifics and once I have built confidence, I was trusted to carry tasks on my own initiative. Myself and the lead carpenter were primarily responsible for things like internal timber partitions, temporary stud safety walls and roof decking (OSB/PLY), plinth-making for steel exposed steel elements, timber framing and sheeting rooftop bar, joinery in bedrooms and reception area. There were a lot more odd jobs and adjustments during the process of construction.
