PALACE HOTEL RENOVATION

Architecture Internship

12/2012 - present

The Palace Hotel is a 120-year-old historic brick and concrete building in downtown Ukiah, CA that will be renovated as a space for retail, restaurants, and condos. As the architectural intern, I documented the building’s structure for the seismic engineering, provided conceptual plans, and developed renderings of key spaces to show to potential investors (see my project blog at wwww.palacehotelukiah.blogspot.com.) me

For this project I worked with the architecture firm Ruff and Associates to create a complete set of construction documents for a garage and residence in Boonville, CA. I coordinated with the client and architect to resolve important design issues such as room and electrical layout, window and door placement, structural hardware selection, and siding materials.

2/2013 - 6/2013 A

This was a group based, climate focused project for a satellite art exhibit in Calexico, CA. Our goal was to create an exhibit that would eflight sensitive fectively showcase artwork and sculptures while E being a refuge from the bright light and heat outside. The north facing exhibit is dark with no direct light, because it is meant to display light sensitive drawings. The south facing exhibit is much lighter and receives direct light in mornD sculpture ings and some afternoons, in order to highlight a sculpture and allow visibility for the paintings. Although both spaces have the same hexagonal B plan, they achieve very different lighting qualiC ties in the spaces through different wall colors, [A] at 12 pm on the equinox, a beam overhang lengths, and ceiling opening heights. of light shines down through the ocuThe large roof pieces are supported by relatively lus to the sculpture thin frames, and are white to allow maximum dif- [B] plan view fusion of light.

A EXPERIMENTATION We rotated a physical model at certain angles to explore the quality of light at different times of day and months of year. To test the light quantitatively, the model was put under a sky simulator and the number of lumens in each space were measured. Using these measurements we increased the overhangs in the light sensitive area to achieve optimal light conditions.

CLIMATE Calexico is part of California’s micro climate zone 15, which is the low desert area of California. This climate zone is characterized by extremely hot, dry summers and mild winters. Calexico experiences significant variations in temperature between seasons, with summers reaching 105 degrees and winters dropping as low as 45 degrees. There are also large temperature fluctuations between days and nights To counter these temperature swings, 12” thick rammed earth with rigid insulation was chosen as the wall assembly because of its large thermal mass. Rigid insulation also increases the wall’s R-value and protects the interior from more extreme temperatures. 2.4’

BIRD WATCHING TOWER

Visual Studies Studio

2/2013 - 6/2013

In this I project used constructivist paintings as inspiration to design a bird watching tower for the Berkeley Wetlands. The strong lines and angularity of the paintings are translated into a steel structure with wooden platforms that offers expansive views of the surrounding landscape.
