01 Urban Infill House 2nd Year Design Studio Objective Design a mix use compact home. Consisting of three floors, the first floor must be an office space or store with the remaining floors residential. Entry to the Residential floors must have a separate entry from the Store/Office entry. Located in downtown Tallahassee on Gaines street, Itâ€™s a populated area where business opportunity is abundant.
Passive Design Strategies
Incorporate Natural ventilation to lessen usage of air conditioning The sites area is 12’x36’. My approach to my design the addition of rectangles with an extended border by 3’ so there won’t be a need for vertical support.
Flat roof works well in hot dry climates
Second Level Third Level
Street Elevation Office is located on the first level, housing meetings and workspace. Residential begins on the second level and to enter the residential is a separate door.

02 Biotechnology Research Facility 3rd Year Design Studio Objective Design will consider the current expanding use of flexible and open areas for a collaborative research building in a full block between FAMU and FSU in downtown Tallahassee as an opportunity to explore new avenues for architecture. This project is expected to be another landmark to represent current growing activity, research that relates to the neighboring universities. Flexible, and changeable space will help the building adapt to changing activity.

A Collage inspired by the Stonehenge and prayer to the Sun. Each year, on 21 June (the longest day of the year), the sun always rises over the Heel Stone at Stonehenge – a single large sarsen stone which stands outside of the main monument. Others think the site may have been a kind of Stone Age ‘computer’ that credited solar or lunar eclipses – or a temple to the sun or moon gods. Software: Microsoft PowerPoint
