PROFESSIONAL PROJECTS


MOSCOW TRANSIT CENTER ICMA COMPETITION WINNER Transit centers are all about movement and circulation. The design concept of this transit center was to demonstrate movement. That was accomplished through the many angled roof planes. The building layout is a reaction to the site. The L shape was used to capture the southern sun, while still keeping the waiting area on the more appropriate west side. The linear, open floor plan helps users always see to the outside and more easily navigate the building.


CALDWELL COMMUNITY CENTER In designing this community center, we were asked to inform the users of sustainability. In response, the design shows the following 2 concepts: 1. Sense of Community Design an attractive building that encourages community members to come together and learn. 2. Display Sustainability Design a building that diplays and informs the users of sustainable strategies through exhibits.

ALMON STREET

The site for this convention center is an infill project in downtown Moscow, ID. We were asked design using wood. The building program included: two commercial spaces, an indoor farmers market and an event dcenter.

Moscow is a farming community, therefore, I tried to bring the rural vernacular architecture into the downton context. I used buildings throughout the community to inspire my design concept.

VANCOUVER STUDENT HOUSING We were asked to design a two story building that could be duplicated ten times to house students for summer camps in Vancouver, British Columbia. The L shaped master plan with the meandoring path between the buildings creates a walkable community with private and public spaces for the students to enjoy.

MULTI-FAMILY HOUSING This apartment complex was part of a master plan for a river front development near downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. The concept of this building was to create a building facade that changed to react to the users wants. The operable exterior shading devices help block the sun and add interest to the building facade. The apartment design also allowed for cross ventilation as each housing unit had access to operable windows on each side of their unit.

WARM RIVER REMODEL The client asked us to gut this 30 year old brick house and change the look to a more interesting, rustic mountain design that better fit into it’s context. We accomplished this by changing the materiality of the building, adding some bump outs, breaking up the roof masses and increasing the pitch of the roofs. I managed the project by communicating with the client, helping with the design and creating the 3D model and construction documents for the project.


RESTAURANT REMODEL This very popular restaurant in downtown Driggs, Idaho needed a facelift. The clients requested brick as the main exterior material. Then, we added timbers and wood siding into the project to incorporate the mountain surroundings. We could not move the location of the existing windows, which gave the project some difficult constraints. I was the lead designer on this project. I also created the model, rendering and am currently completing the construction documents.


HAWK CRY RESIDENCE This project was in a wetland area which gave it some unique building envelope constraints. Likewise, the wetlands, driveway entry, and views to the east made for a creative building layout. I created the model, construction document and had a big influence on the design of this home.


CHERRY CREEK RESIDENCE I did not contribute to the design of this home but was handed the project after the 3D model was already created. I was asked to make a presentation rendering. I used revit and photoshop to create these images. I made an interior and exterior rendering to help market the home design.


TABLE ROCK RESIDENCE This is one of my most recent projects. I worked through many different designs to come to this final outcome. The site was sloping, the best views were to the east and the client insisted that the garage doors faced south to melt the snow. These constraints drove the design and created an L shape home with a walk-out basement on the north side. I met with the clients and had a large influence on the design. I created the model and the construction documents are under way.
