THE THERMAL CLUB

Vita Planning and Landscape Architecture Racetrack Oriented Resort Community

Covered Paddock Covered Paddock

Speed Shop & Mechanic

The Thermal Motor Club is a unique resort community which has a racetrack as the center and draw of the community. Its located in the Cochella Valley and has proven to be a good business model because sales have been good. We did careful mass grading studies to ensure even offtrack lots have views of the racetrack thereby increasing their value significantly. To take in all the action the Club is located within the center carousal on an island with an iconic bridge to pass over and race under. I am the project manager for this

DONGTAN

Vita Planning and Landscape Architecture Resort Planning in Chong Ming, China

The Dongtan Project is a previously undeveloped island in Chong Ming, China. The developer is installing a competition golf course and providing 88 high end properties. With thoughtful planning each home will have an unencumbered view of the golf course. Additionally the waterfront lots will have yacht slips installed. I designed and drew the sections. And collaborated on the mass grading plan.

3-27

Sanctuary Belize is a large master planned resort community within a mixed adventure of savannahs, beaches and canals. I managed the completion of the Design Guidelines for the project and contributed to the writing, graphics and content of the document.

2.2.4

Waterfront Zones and Wetland Edges Waterfront areas include the edges of Sittee River, the marina, and created or natural waterways. These are highly sensitive ecological areas, often prime habitat for wildlife and easily damaged through poor construction practices by erosion, siltation, or change in water quality. The goal is to preserve these areas or, in the case of newly created water edges, revegetate these areas to blend with and appear as natural shorelines. The following are Guidelines for development along these edges.

3.3.3

Two-Story - For “Two-Story” homes on grade, Building Height may not exceed nine (9) meters.

Building Height Objectives

To minimize the visual impact of all buildings and to ensure that they are subordinate to and blend with the surrounding landscape. To ensure that the view potential from each Lot is preserved Building Height Measurement The maximum Building Height shall be established by a plane adjacent to the building exterior measured vertically above the natural grade within the Private Area to the highest finish material of the roof ridge. Building Height and Story Information Story designations are described below:

> Eaves: Eaves are to have a minimum depth of 1 meter at the rafter overhangs. Larger rafter overhangs are encouraged for 3:12 and 4:12 roof pitches. > All eaves are to be left open with bamboo rafters > Dormers: Not commonly used with this style. Exterior Walls > Exterior Wall Design: Generally full height walls of bamboo but combining with local stone is also acceptable. > Exterior Wall Height: Shall be 4 meters maximum. Doors and Windows > Design/Placement: Windows and doors may be symmetrical or in asymmetrical, but balanced, compositions.

For “Two-Story” homes with storage or airspace below the building, Building Height may not exceed eleven (11) meters. SEE FIGURE 3.2 - TWO-STORY HOME DIAGRAM

Sanctuary Belize Design Guidelines

3-19

2.2.5

Savannah The Savannah landscape of Sanctuary Belize is a unique ecosystem deserving of protection and enhancement. It is a conspicuously open savannah that includes wetland areas and drainage courses. The goal is to maintain the existing character of the vast open savannah through carefully articulated building masses and native landscaping.

Homes shall be one story with horizontal massing and low profile roofs that blend into the natural environment

Protect native mangrove areas through setbacks and silt fences

Utilize light and medium colors to meld with the native savannah landscape

Revegetate disturbed mangrove areas of newly created shorelines with native plants

Where necessary, thin existing vegetation to provide water views

Only native/naturalized species that naturally occur within the Savannah shall be used in the Homeowner landscapes

Avoid use of man-made shoreline stabilization devices. Use vegetation whenever possible

A wider range of building colors and massing is permitted

Homes shall be 1-2 stories with vertical or horizontal massing that minimize the obstruction of views

> On grade homes may be raised 500 millimeters above grade either by fill or structure. This additional height shall not be calculated in the Building Height. > Homes within the Marina Village are prohibited from raising the first level above existing grade more than 750 millimeters. Refer to definitions for Floor Area and Story for further information.

One-Story - For “One-Story” homes on grade, the Building Height may not exceed seven (7) meters.

> Windows: – Windows shall be casement, single or double hung. Generally the Bamboo Home has a very simple approach to fenestration. Occasional picture windows with side windows are appropriate.

For “One-Story” homes with parking or storage areas below, the Building Height may not exceed eight (8) meters. SEE FIGURE 3.1 - ONE-STORY HOME DIAGRAM 3.25 m

– Generally vertically proportioned double hung windows. Rectangular transoms are most common. > Doors: – Entry doors shall be wood in a variety of paneled configurations with or without lites. Generally, doors shall be stained a darker color though accent painting to match windows is also acceptable.

4 DESIGN REVIEW PROCESS

Figure 3.1 3 1 - One Story Home Diagram

– Entry doors are always sheltered by a porch or deep (2.5 meter minimum) porch.

This section provides a guide for the Design Review Process for Sanctuary Belize. The process involves a series of meetings between the Builder/Partner, their design team and the DRC. The process begins with an informal introductory meeting and concludes with the completion of construction. Along the way are a series of meetings designed to ensure a smooth and efficient review of the building and site design. The DRC is committed to assisting the Builder/Partner through the Design Review Process and shall be thought of as a member of the Builder/Partner’s design team as opposed to a regulatory review agency.

Punts Lobos is an expansive master planned community in Todos Santos, Mexico. I managed this project from conceptual design on, This sheet shows a detail of the project. The Seaside Village is where urban meets the beach. The design takes into account views to the beach; and a town square is designed to be embraced by a boutique hotel, a church and a farm to table restaurant. Housing is placed upon walking streets for locals to stroll down while garages are accessed from narrow alleys. The design also allows for local fishermen to continue to fishing their traditional location and then the plan provides a place to sell the fresh catch.

Punts Lobos is an expansive master planned community in Todos Santos, Mexico. I managed this project from conceptual design on, This sheet shows a detail of the project. The entry from the highway to the beach plays a key role in how the user experiences the community. The landform and landscape is the key player in the entrance. The road to the beach is sited and graded to offer a revealing experience to the community members

MALOOF MONEY CUP Personal Contract

Skateboarding Event Design

The Maloof Money Cup is an international skateboarding competition that is a major player within the skateboarding circuit. I was contracted to design and provide the plans for events in New York, Washington D.C. and Kimberly South Africa. The example here is of New York City. Under the contract I laid out the event, put it into CAD, created a location map to be published for event goers and designed three-story Jumbotron/VIP seating structures.

SAN FRANCISCO TRANSBAY AREA PLAN University of California at Berkeley computer and hand graphics

The Urban Places Design Studio presented the problem of placing 300 du/ac in 10 acres of the San Francisco Transbay Area. While all my classmates just put in a tower to achieve density, I chose to keep all my buildings under 20 stories. This is in tune with the surrounding area, it will not obstruct views and it does not change the San Francisco skyline. I was able to capture the high density in mid-rise buildings, but I still maintained a central 1 acre park for the new residents and the current citizens alike.

LIVING WITH RHYTHM

South China University of Technology 24�x36�

I In 2008 I went to Guangzhou, China to be a part of a design studio with students from SCUT. We focused our studies on a series of villages that are at risk of being eradicated by their government. One village in particular became our case study, Dadun. We looked at water quality, circulation, history and need. Then we came up with a solution that fit the needs of the villages as well as the needs of the government. The studio was an intense 2 weeks and we ended it with a presentation to public officials who have a say in the development of this region of China. While there, I learned to coordinate with other cultures and how to design for that culture.

THESIS

University of California at Berkeley Urban Design

My thesis focuses on the revitalization of a declining steel mill town by enhancing it through urban design while connecting natural systems and a metro park to the downtown district. In the thesis; land use compatibility issues are solved, alternative transportation is introduced and a portion of a historic warehouse would be gutted and restored for a multi-use community center. But, more important to the facelift of the city is the contamination of the soil from years of steel manufacturing. The thesis addressed this issue head on with a tree plantation that would leach the heavy metals from the soil. Currently the City of Youngstown is looking at the thesis to consider the feasibility..

SPRECKLES PARK

Knox Landscape Architecture hand drawn & computer drafted presentation exhibit

I worked on many aspects of Spreckles Park, including the streetscape design, the planting and irrigation plans and the entry feature. The entry feature is still one of my favorite designs; this is because it takes historic site elements and incorporates them into a modern design. The Spreckles project was an old sugar plant that was being transformed into a commerce park. The clients wanted to recall the history of the site with the entry feature. I conducted research to determine the original building’s architectural style and then proposed a small structure that emulated that style. The replica structure would sit on a base made of reclaimed bricks, representing the now demolished original building. The deliberate placement of new bricks on top of old bricks symbolizes the context of the site, which is an old place can be given new life. To further strengthen this concept, the large letters that spell out Spreckles came from the original sign that sat atop the building.

PANHANDLE

Panhandle is a Sacramento project that I took through the tentative map process. For two years I was directly involved with the overall planning, zoning and design of this site. The goal of the design was to create a sustainable community with distinct neighborhoods. Therefore, integrated within the project are mixeduse sites, apartment and condominium sites, cluster home sites, alley-loaded single-family sites, and traditional single-family sites. Also located in the project are commercial sites, an elementary school site, a high school/middle school site and numerous parks. The parks, schools and commercial sites are all linked to their community by pedestrian friendly streets and a series of bike paths, thus encouraging a greater sense of community. In order to achieve the kind of flexibility needed to plan a community like this, we opted to submit under the city’s PUD code and write development text for the specifics of the project.

COWELL COASTAL TRAIL Landpeople

Bluff Trail Construction Document Set

Cowell Coastal Trail is located along a coastal bluff in Half Moon Bay. I field sited the trail with an engineer and took survey point information digitally. Then took the coordinates and put it in CAD to be staked and installed by these plans. Its a lower standard of layout requirements because we were working for a non-profit not a jurisdiction. This trail didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use station points because it made more sense to use the survey points we took in the field and create a centerline and path edge.

CITY OF LIVE OAK COMMUNITY TRAIL Alta/Landpeople

Bike Trail Construction Document Set

I was the lead Landscape Architect on this project and had the pleasure to see it through from the master plan report to the construction documents and specifications. The project is a 1 mile multi-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists set partially in the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way. It is much needed because nearby State Route 99, a busy 2-lane freeway, is currently used for motor and non-motor travel. With motor speeds often exceeding the limit, this relationship is hazardous. Two sheets from the construction documents are shown here. On this project, I designed the planting and irrigation, signed the construction set, coordinated with the City of Live Oak, worked directly with the engineer and managed the CAD work within the office. The City has received funding to move forward with the installation of this phase, Phase 1.

PIT RIVER HYDROELECTRIC FERC RELICENSING HDR Personal Contract

Recreation Construction Document Set

The Pit River Project is compromised of 29 individual sites. It was a large project with a challenging time frame; just 3 months to conduct 3-day long site visits twice and complete this 60% construction set for the engineers. I was brought in as Lead Landscape Architect at kickoff and saw this segment of the overall FERC project through. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, FERC, requires energy relicensing on a 30-50 year schedule which includes numbers environmental studies to be conducted and documented. Pit 3 Powerhouse River Access plan shows a heli-pad nearby parking and picnic. The challenge was to ensure the landing pad was not to be sued for overflow parking, as it currently is, and also to ensure the safety of users. This site is located on a PG&E owned recreation site and therefore had to conform fully with ADA therefore a universally accessible fishing platform and picnic areas were located to allow everyone to access the entire site.

Pit 3 Powerhouse River Access

Oak Flat River Access was an existing fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trail that was getting dangerous because of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liner nature and the extremely sleep slope. The task at this site was to add switchbacks and abandon the original trail. The Team walked the trail and took digital slope shots where we wanted to set the new trail switchbacks. We considered each view at the switchbacks and chose locations that were logical and gave the best views of the surrounding area. I took those shots and used it to site the trail in CAD.

DON PEDRO RESERVOIR FERC VISUAL QUALITY STUDY HDR Engineering - Personal Contract technical environmetal document

I personally contracted with HDR Engineering to conduct this Visual Quality Study as the lead with assistance from another contractor. Together we walked the site twice and documented all visual impacts using the BLMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines for visual quality assessment. I then compiled all the observed information into charts, wrote the document and provided the supporting imagery.

and configuration of the facility, as well as to verify the facilities seen from KOPs. During these visits, The Districts recorded and photo-documented the facility features and surrounding visual conditions. For Ward’s Ferry Bridge, this included recognizing that people drive and walk across the bridge.

evident on the steep slopes and presents strong visual contrast to the landscape outside the drawdown line.

EVC ratings were also developed based on photographs from past years depicting extremely low and extremely high levels.

Moccasin Point Recreation Area is not located on BLM. It is located just south of the Jacksonville Road Bridge that spans Don Pedro Reservoir’s northeast cove. No KOPs were established in the campground because there were limited views of the reservoir and it is not located on BLM land.

4.7.2

Existing Visual Condition on Public Land Administered by BLM

5.1.2

Moccasin Point Recreation Area

The BLM EVC system uses degree of visual contrast to rate existing facilities and changes to the landscape. The categories and definitions are as follows:

There are a few dispersed recreation areas located on BLM land in the vicinity of Moccasin Point Recreation Area. KOPs were taken in four places.

ƒ

None. The element contrast is not visible or perceived.

ƒ

Weak. The element contrast can be seen but does not attract attention.

ƒ

Moderate. The element contrast begins to attract attention and begins to dominate the characteristic landscape.

The first two are on BLM land and access from Priests Grade Road. The first, taken from the intersection of Grizzly Road and Priests Grade Road, is a superior view of Moccasin Arm of the reservoir. The second is taken at the end of Grizzly Road and has a view of Moccasin Point Recreation Area, as well as, a view of houseboats.

ƒ

Strong. The element contrast demands attention, will not be overlooked, and is dominant in the landscape.

In determining the degree of contrast, the BLM Manual 8400: Visual Resources Management (BLM 1976a) lists the following factors to consider: distance, angle of observation, length of time viewed, relative size or scale, seasons of use, light conditions, recovery time, spatial relationships, atmospheric conditions, motion, and the basic elements of form, line, color, and texture. BLM degree of contrast and BLM VRM Classes do not correlate directly but, in general, correspond as follows: Table 4.7-1

Degree of contrast correlation to VRM Classes. Degree of Contrast

None Weak Moderate Strong

I II III IV

VRM Classes Preserve existing character Retain existing character Partially retain existing character Provide for management activities which require major modification of existing character

Based on the above correlation, for example, it can be assumed that if the degree of contrast rating is “weak,” then the facility can meet a Class II objective. See BLM’s Handbook 8431-1: Visual Resource Contrast Rating, for more detailed information (BLM 1976c). The Districts evaluated any Project facilities on, partially on, or near lands administered by BLM from KOPs using the BLM system. These KOPs are listed under Table 3.1-1. In the few situations where there was no BLM influence the same EVC system was used but there was no documentation of Visual Resource Objectives (VRO) and no determination that a VRO was met because they do not exist on the Districts land or private land.

Initial Study Report Don Pedro Project, FERC Project No. 2299

The second two are both on BLM land and were taken from small roads accessed off Jackson Road a short distance past Moccasin Point Recreation Area. One is found off of Kanaka Road and has views across the reservoir and up the Woods Creek Arm. The other is found off of Harney Road and has a view directly across the Woods Creek Arm of the State Route 49/120 and Overlook. 5.1.3

Highway 49/120 and Vista Point

State Routes 49 and 120 are combined and found along the same route which traverses the Project in the north. Views from State Route 49/120 are of Don Pedro Reservoir, BLM, District, and private lands in foreground, middle ground, and the background. The foreground is that of the Reservoir, the middle ground is of the lands across the water and the background is of steep slopes of the foothills. The view most often seen from this viewshed is that of the SR 49/120 Overlook vista point approximately 100 feet (ft) above the water. Hetch Hetchy pipeline can be seen running down the slope to the east. This Overlook view of the Reservoir is the one most often seen by people, typically those passing through the area on their way to Yosemite National Park. A few residences in long range view can be seen tucked into the landscape when looking across the Reservoir; the color and the geometric shapes present weak visual contrast to the green chamise (Adenostoma fasiculatum) dominated foothills accented with blue oak (Quercus douglassii) and gray pine (Pinus sabiniana). During high water there is little to no visual contrast with the exception of the Jacksonville Road Bridge seen to the south which is moderate to strong depending on lighting, As the water drops the visual contrast increases and was considered moderate visual contrast in both March and July as seen from the Vista Point.. This is due to the ring being adjacent to vegetation which includes trees of a different texture and color. RR-04 Visual Quality

Initial Study Report Don Pedro Project, FERC Project No. 2299

Two typical sheets from a technical report I composed while on contract with HDR Engineering. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, FERC, requires energy relicensing on a 30-50 year schedule which includes numbers environmental studies to be conducted and documented. The goal of this study was to document current visual conditions of the project as viewed from Bureau of Land Management, BLM, lands during various times of the year and identify any adverse visual resource effects due to continued operations and management of the project. This Visual Quality Study was conducted by me with assistance from another contractor to HDR. Together we walked the site twice and documented all visual impacts from Key Observation Points, KOPs, using the BLM’s guidelines for determining visual quality impacts. I then compiled all the observed data into charts, wrote the document and provided the supporting imagry.

TRADITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT

Authored in conjunction with Floyd Browne Associates, Inc. newsletter article

I wrote this article after spending more than 2 years working within the constraints of the TND Code in the City of Columbus, Ohio. While collaborating with this engineering firm, I utilized my knowledge and talent in the area of New Urbanism to develop a niche within the company. I was soon asked to write this article for the client newsletter on the subject of New Urbanism in the context of the TND Code in the City of Columbus. This article was written to persuade existing clients, who were more conservative, that a new type of zoning was available and that the company could provide professional services with regards to this new code. I think it is important to get clients involved with and interested in Traditional Neighborhood Development. This is especially important in developing cities like Columbus or Sacramento, which are surrounded by a seemingly endless supply of farmland. TND codes, like the one described here, can help counteract the trend of suburban sprawl and bring the development back into the cities.
