The Bath Digital Jungle Year: 2019 Location: Bath, United Kingdom Typology: Startup Hub/Office

While Bath is seeing a big increase in technology startups, the city is lacking in infrastructure for young businesses to thrive in the Digital Age. This project aims to tackle the issue by providing flexible workspace for tech startups to work as a community and grow to become mature businesses.

Atrium Brings in Daylight

The site is an existing car park in Bath city center, surrounded by historical buildings and a notable Gothic church. Revitalising the disconnected area of the city, an atrium is created to frame stunning views of the church and create an urban passage. For the tenants, the atrium is the center of activity where people meet and connect. Incorporating greenery into the workplace have various benefits to health and productivity. Attaining the benefits, greenery is heavily integrated into the atrium space, creating a sub-tropical greenhouse in the city center for tenants and the public to enjoy.

Stadium for Bath Year: 2018 Location: Bath, United Kingdom Typology: Rugby Stadium

In collaboration with Grimshaw, architecture and civil engineering students are put in groups of five to design a new multi-use rugby stadium for the city of Bath. Students are responsible for designing the south stand in coordination with Grimshaw’s drawings for the other three stands. Greenery Flowing Up the Tower

With the ambition of creating a new icon at the heart of the city, we decided to incorporate an observational tower to the stadium, which gives an extraordinary experience of viewing the game of rugby and 360o views of the UNESCO heritage city. Greenery is integrated into the stadium and tower as if the park landscape grows up into the sky. This project has been a tremendous learning experience. Working closely with civil engineering students, I enhanced my teamwork and problem-solving skills through solving structural and environmental complications of the design. As for production, I was responsible for 3D modeling and creating visualisations for presentation.

Combe Down Infant School Year: 2017 Location: Bath, United Kingdom Typology: School/Nursery

The brief is to design an infant school for children aged 4-7. To encourage the idea of learning outside the classroom, the school is arranged into an ‘H’ shaped with multi-purpose courtyards in the center, providing a variety of outdoor learning spaces. The classrooms are placed deep into the site to minimise noise from the road, provide privacy and frame views of the landscape. Vivid colors, contrasting with natural materials, are used to differentiate academic years and create playfulness. The result is an intimate and enjoyable learning experience for children and teaching staffs.

Work Experience Year: 2017 & 2018 Location: Bangkok, Thailand Workplace: Architects 49, Architects 49 House Design, The Office of Bangkok Architects

As part of the university’s 4-year sandwich course, students are encouraged to undertake professional placement during the second semester of the second and third academic year. I was fortunate to work in many reputable architectural practices in Thailand, which gave me a sense of how architecture is practiced in the real world. During placement, I was involved in various projects ranging from luxury houses to a 30,000 m2 mixed-used complex where I contributed in conceptual design and modelled the masterplan for presentation. Moreover, I acquired knowledge of local codes and regulations through producing detailed drawings and documents for Environmental Impact Assessment. The images to the right are some of the work I produced or contributed to whilst on placement. Textured Floor Plans of Resort Project
