Residence Hall and Gallery
Intended to bridge public and residential spaces of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design residence hall, this design created a plaza between the two main public spaces: the gallery and the cafe. The residential bar is pushed to the street as to not impede the views of the neighboring building. The project included the completion of a short set of construction documents.
Zarletti Articulated Wall
This design build team project for Zarletti Restaurant in downtown Milwaukee drew upon the curvilinear Poulsen lights within the interior as inspiration. Donated wood veneer was used to create the undulating shape of this wood curtain to create a beacon to the surrounding neighborhood. The form was developed using a script to manage the various parameters of the design.
The confluence of the physical and spiritual allow faith communities to experience God’s presence: at Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,. The paramount element of the chapel design is the interplay of light. As the sun shifts in the sky, the shadows and light change, creating a connection with the sacred.
Masterplan Research & Design
Developed as a result of researching social housing in Paris, France, this master plan was completed as a group project. The intent was to apply the design principles learned on the trip to a site in the Fifth Ward of Milwaukee. Creating specific zones serving as reference points to the interaction of the urban landscape were defined within the site.
Next Generation Federal Building
The Metropolis GSA Next Generation Design Competition was an invitation to transform the Federal GSA Building in Los Angeles, CA into a net zero energy building. This group project focused on increasing natural light, water conservation, and natural ventilation. The fault lines and wind patterns of its geographical location inspired the overall design approach.
