A Boat Centre, NSW It started with the initial approach to the site. The most noticeable things were on-site is its historical significance with the Tweed River frontage and the view to Mount Warning. The short movie making has given us a critical eye to identify and understand the beauty of nature and the importance of the site with the surrounding elements. I started with responding to the immediate opportunities available such as Water, Mount Warning, Green lush Landscape. As the site has opportunities, but it does have for instance threats such as Flood levels and Harsh Summer months. As the site comes under the NSW territory, it has a Tropical Climate.

To respond site I started to scribble my design intention on tracing paper. The first step was to provide the framed views with overlooking Tweed River and the Mount Warning. Then to identify the building mass to inform the site condition and Considering the simplicity of nature. It is not necessary to respond to the local character we only can do by imitating. it can be more efficient and workable design if the local traditional building styles and the local character are combined with the contemporary styles and the material which makes it more environment responsive design approach.

A piece of advice was given to me in my first semester by well recognised practising architects Lindsay Clare and Kerry Clare. They suggested me to develop your ideas on a tracing paper, it will help you to engage in your design. Also, it would give you more clarity and sense of scale, which is critical for any project. I started to stick with basics skills, which I used to work in my bachelor studies.

Ayurvedic Detox Retreat Center, NSW The Ayurvedic Detox retreat centre is located into a vast landscape and surrounded by farmlands. The idea behind bringing the retreat at Murwillumbah was to accommodate people from various age groups diagnosed with mental and physical health issues. The leading cause of these issues was a mental stress. The center will act as a with various programs focused on improving the overall health of body and mind. Centre has distinct Ayurvedic therapies originated from India and with Naturopathy therapies.

In planning an Ancient Vastushastra is tailored to make it more aligned with laws of nature and the universe. Vastu has considerations such as a planetary movement is affecting the human mind and physiology. Initial hand sketch was drawn, keeping the idea of simplicity and Vastushastra planning principles. Those was then conceptualised with site condition with using the climatic aspect. Further insights were synthesised on design to planning an ideal location to emphasise the natural daylight and efficient natural ventilation within the building envelope.

Revitilisation of palm beach cultural precinct Palm Beach has developed as a distinct, diverse cultural value in Gold coast. It has served many essential functions as in the development of the local community and urban centre. The site we got to work was used to be a playroom with the other complementary activities. Since then now it is being used a car park of the Palm Beach hotel and for other bars, restaurants.

Analysis Diagrams We have given a brief with a set of requirements to distribute in a group of two people. In a group, I had Viviane as my group work partner. According to the requirements, we tried to disperse the sets of functions based on its specific use. My role, was focusing on the playroom, studios and residential spaces which came through lots of ideas and concepts at the beginning. The process of ideas and developing the brief frequently progressed further with practical and technical inputs from our mentors Lindsay Clare and Kerry Clare. Along with the directions with no exception, Justin Twohill was always there to resolve the design issues. Axonometric Plans

I tried my best to get the design working functionally and adapting local climatic conditions as far as possible in the finite period at studios. In the end, the final design outcome stands out as a combination of ideas, critique and development process.

The sustainable approach consists of analysing different models. Then I took on the path to create various options for school elevation keeping in mind to make it playful and appealing for school children. There were many classroom options with varied requirements of the brief. While designing a school balcony, I took a creative approach, which makes it more fluidic and clear design apart from a traditional method.
