Abstract Void  Study

The purpose  of  this  project  was  to   explore  the  possibilities  within  the   relationship  of  solid  and  void  in  an   abstract  way.    During  the  process,   continuality  became  an  integral  aspect   of  the  design  as  well.    This  study   allowed  for  the  discovery  that  void   space,  when  used  correctly,  can  be   more  powerful  than  solid  mass.

Landscape Design

This was  a  park   redesign  project  set   on  an  existing  riverside   site.    The  current  site   is  dominated  by  parking   use,  so  the  emphasis   of  this  project  was   greenspace  and  family   oriented  attractions.     With  the  parking   placed  underground,   this  landscape  would   be  a  destination.

Theatre Design

Theatre Design When  I  was  first  introduced  to   the  limitations  and  restrictions   involved  in  the  design  of  public   buildings,  a  theatre  design  was  a   good  starting  place.    While  it  left   out  some  major  restrictions  and   specifications,  it  provided  vital   understanding  of  designing  within   boundaries.    The  requirements   included  the  number  of  seats  for   the  auditorium,  ADA  accessibility,   restrooms  and  amenities  capable  of     servicing  a  full  house.    This  project   was  also  done  with  no  computer   involvement.

Multi-Family Housing

My studio  instructor   decided  to  have  this  project   be  a  direct  reflection   of  a  real  project  he  was   commissioned  for.    The  site   was  located  in  Denver  on   25th  and  Stout  in  a  very   transitional  neighborhood   that  is  changing  every  year.     The  project  had  four  main   stakeholders;  the  Northeast   Denver  Housing  Center,  the   Healthy  Homes  Initiative,  the   Urban  Land  Conservancy,   and  National  Jewish  Hospital.     The  goal  was  to  create  a  low   income,  multi-family  housing   complex  used  for  families   with  children  who  have   respiratory  health  issues.     The  project  required  at   least  10  units,  with  at  least   one  being  a  3-bedroom  unit   and  parking  amenities  within   the  small  site.    Because  the   area  is  so  transitional,  I   felt  the  tuck-under  parking,   centralized  green  space,  and   defensible  balcony  spaces   were  important.    It  also  was   required  to  research  the   building  code,  HVAC  systems   meeting  the  Healthy  Homes   Initiative  requirements,   as  well  as  energy  and   zoning  requirements.    This   project  shed  light  into   what  designing  multi-family   housing  truly  requires  from   the  beginning  background   research  to  the  finishing   touches  of  air  quality.

Revit Modeling

9

This was  the  final  project  of  a  Revit   modeling  class  where  we  were  given   an  existing  house  with  very  limited   structural  and  layout  information.     This  forced  creativity  and  ingenuity  to   complete  the  model,  while  exploring  the   capabilities  of  the  Revit  program.    This   left  me  with  a  quality  understanding  of   Revit  modeling,  as  well  as  its  rendering   capabilities.

Sustainable Classroom

Sustainable Classroom

Working together  as  a  group  of  6,  we  entered   a  sustainable  design  competition  for  an   individual,  sustainable  classroom  for  Casey   Middle  School.    The  backbone  of  our  design  is   the  shipping  container,  which  would  hold  all   the  materials  needed  to  construct  the  building.     The  south-facing  greenhouse  was  also  a  very   important  part  of  the  design  because  it  would   not  only  hold  plants  and  vegetation  for  the   students,  but  it  also  contains  the  waterwall   that  provides  the  building  with  passive  heating   and  cooling.    The  emphasis  was  on  creating  an   interaction  of  education  and  sustainability  for   the  next  generation.
