ECHO LIGHTING LIGHTING DESIGN
Echo is a lighting design project inspired by a micrography image that won fifth price in Nikonâ€™s Small World competition. Creating a design inspired by the image, this fixture focuses on achiving Play of Brilliants through the effects of light and shadow.
CONCEPT & GOAL Echo (/’ekō/): a sound of series of sounds caused by the reflection of sound waves from a surface back to the listener.
The goal of this project was to design a light fixture based on a micrography photograph in Nikon’s International Small World Competition. Using this image of a seastar, we created analytical drawings to use as inspiration for the design of the light fixture. Within the minimum dimensions of a twelve inch box, we specified the fixture type, materials, and lamp selection. Fun Fact: The young seas star photographed is so small it appears naked to the human eye.

CASCADE FURNITURE DESIGN
Cascade is a furniture design project for a local middle schoolâ€™s outdoor recess area. Our clients, the students of Mathson Middle School had very little outdoor seating around their blacktop area and asked for a space they could enjoy during their break. Students envisioned benches they could socialize with friends, relax, and feel happy on. In the end, five benches were created for the students to enjoy during their free time. Designed by: Shelby Sherick, Kristine Saelee, Julia Guajardo, Marie Andersen & Kristen Norona
CONCEPT & GOAL Wavy (wav·y / wāvē): having or consisting of a series of undulating and wavelike curves.
The goal of this project was to design a bench for the students of Mathson Middle School. Given the concept of wavy, we were instructed to develop benches made of two-by-fours. With limited outdoor seating, students asked for a bench that they could relax and socialize with friends on. The bench design allows for multiple seating arrangements for all and is placed under the trees for maximum shade.

With the power saw, cut 2 notches into the 4 foot pieces, 15 inches from the edge, 1.75 inches deep.
3 Take one of the 8 foot pieces of plywood and with a pencil, draw out the bench design you would like. Using the power saw, cut along the line you created until the pieces are separated. Using the newly cut plywood, lay it on top of the second piece of plywood and trace the design with a pencil. Repeat the step above by cutting along the line with a power saw.

4 Place the 2 cut plywood pieces standing up, equal distance apart to mirror the notches in the 4 foot lumber pieces. Take a pieces of the lumber and starting on the ground floor, place the notches in the lumber within the plywood.
5 Taking 2 screws and the power drill, secure the 4 foot piece of lumber to the plywood by drilling the nails through the lumber into the plywood. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until bench is complete.
6 The Cascade bench design allows for each builder to create a one of a kind Cascade bench by creating the overall shape of the bench.

The bench design above, was a design created by myself for the students of Mathson Middle School. For this project, our class was broken up into five groups and given various concepts, each person was instructed to create five designs based on those concepts. Teams each selected one design to build a prototype of and present with the other groups to the principle and a few of the middle schoolâ€™s teachers. My bench design, was selected by our group to be built as the prototype and was then selected to be built for Mathson Middle School by our class and the facility of the school. As a class, we developed the final designs you see to the right, the budget, color palette, and the construction and installation of the benches. In the end, five benches were created for the students to enjoy during their free time. The final benches allow for various seating positions, groups, and arrangements and are placed under the trees for maximum shade.

COMMUNITY CIRCLE HOSPITALITY DESIGN
Community Circle is a hospitality design project that is intended to help fight homelessness. By taking an existing building and adding a third space to buildings original function, the space is created to serve additional purposes beyond the buildings intended use. This project focuses on designing within certain spaces of the building to optimize the buildings potential.
CONCEPT & GOAL Nestle (/’nes l/): settle or lie comfortably within or against something. e
The goal of this project was to create a third program within an existing building in Downtown San Jose. The venue chosen for this specific project is the City National Civic, also known as San Jose Civic. Through site analysis and various drawings, we were to design a new space that wouldn’t alter the spaces original function.

CITY NATIONAL CIVIC 135 W San Carlos St. San Jose, CA 95113
SITE ANALYSIS City National Civic is a venue located in Downtown San José, across the street from the César Chávez Park. Opening in 1933, it is known to have held some of the most popular entertainers, public figures, sporting events, and many others. During a tour of the venue, our guide mentioned that the venue gets very little use, having events usually only one or two times a week. With this in mind, my goal for the project was to create a program that could maximize the spaces potential when it is not being occupied. The existing Sky Bar located on the second floor consists of two rooms separated by a central bar counter in the middle where guests can order drinks. The current layout of the bar is uninviting and feels closed off due to the separation between the rooms. Redesigning the space to be one large room not only will create a more welcoming and circulated bar for guests who attend the venue, but gives the opportunity to create a space that can be utilized by others when the space is not in use. The men and women’s restrooms located on the first floor both hold two rows of stalls separated by a wall of sinks in between. By optimizing space’s size, the space can serve as a restroom for guests during events and also has potential to meet the needs of the new program being designed into the space.

Mapping of Downtown San Jose showing spaces that have the potential to help the homeless within their unused spaces.
The Montage was created by stitching together images of the building to create a new image. The concept, “a path that leads to anywhere” was the inspiration behind the program of this project.
The Line Drawing consists of various lines taken from the Montage that create the idea of an endless path. By using multiple lineweights, arches and important features are emphasized.

The Contrast Drawing is an inverted black and white image of the Montage that is used to pull distinctive shapes that will be used to create the 3D cloud model and the inspiration behind the cubby wall design.
The Layered Drawing is a combination of the Montage, Line, and Contrast Drawing. Pulling together pieces from all three within each individual image, a new masterpiece is created. CNC â€“ Community Circle | 49
FIRST FLOOR – PROPOSED FLOOR PLAN
The back side of the men’s and women’s restrooms have been renovated into a lounge with showers that the homeless can use when the space is vacant. By closing off the wall that separates the two sides, the existing bathrooms can still be used during events while the showers will be closed off. Using both bathrooms, one lounge is intended for the homeless youth and one is for homeless adults. Inside both includes many amenities that are for guests to use and also a laundry room where they have the opportunity to wash their clothes.

SECOND FLOOR â€“ PROPOSED FLOOR PLAN
With the opportunity to redesign the bar to be move functional for guests and its intended function, the spaces new design is also created to serve as a space for the homeless youth when it is vacant. During this time, they will have the opportunity to relax, learn, create, and much, much more. The goal is to create a safe space for them to grow and create a future for themselves. During venue events, all donations from the bar go directly to helping fight homelessness.

The 3D cloud model is a design created by using both curved and linear surfaces that are emphasized in the Montage Drawing from photos of the existing building. By designing a single piece that is then multipled, the pieces are able to be connected together through notches to create a 3D model. Using the 3D model as inspiration, the idea of a cubbywall was created to create a more private space for the homeless to use.

The lounges are designed with individual shower cubbies and a laundry room for guests to clean up and relax in. The space includes all needed neccessities for personal hygiene and are provided by the donations received at the bar during events. The lounges are intended to create a peaceful space where both the youth and adults could escape to and feel re-energized.
