Carolyn Ice's Portfolio

  1. 1. Portfolio Carolyn Ice
  2. 2. Carolyn 803-327-1788 803-981-2012 The purpose of this portfolio is to showcase selected works from my experience as an undergraduate architecture student. The following projects demonstrate my abili- ties in craft, 2D drawings, 3D modeling and rendering programs as well as outline my growth as a designer.

  5. 5. Door, Window, Stair The goal of this assignment was to design a structure based on the elements of door, window and stair. My design was based on folded ribbons of paper. The interaction of the different folded ribbons creates voids that serve as windows and the absence of a ribbon in a wall of ribbons creates a door. A single ribbon folded consistently serves as the stair.4

  7. 7. The Carrefour School After the earthquake in 2010, Haiti struggled to rebuild. Port-au- Prince suffered extreme dam- age and an estimated 1.5 million people were displaced. The pur- pose of The Carrefour School is to provide not only a place to learn but also a home for orphaned girls. The school is a safe haven for the young girls in a country that is cur- rently very unstable. The school has four main buildings, admin- istration, dorms, gym and aca- demic.6

  9. 9. The site plan for the Carrefour School was a very important aspect of this project. The site is surrounded by residential Process and commercial areas as well as a busy road. In the final site plan, the four buildings are arranged to cre- Administration ate a central courtyard where Auditorium Academic students can be outside while Gym Housing still being protected from the surrounding area. To the north of the courtyard the ad- ministration building creates and monitors the entrance to the site The gym closes the campus in the south. Site Plan Evolution8

  12. 12. Dormitory The design for the dorm was inspired by the use of the front porch as a gathering space and the need for a safe place to live. The student occupied levels all have a front porch area that all the bedrooms are off of. I divided the dorm building into three smaller houses. The student and teacher housing was then divided between the three houses. Each house contains some student and some teacher housing. This creates a living-learning environment and adds extra security and monitoring for the girls. This arrangement also may help create a family atmosphere in each of the houses.2nd and 3rd Floor Plans of Dorms 11

  14. 14. The school has all out door walkways and operable windows to take advan- tage of natural ventilation. The dorms have shutters that allow air to flow into the rooms but block the sunlight from heating the room. The dorms alsoClimate each have a vent that al- lows the hot air to flow out the roof. Every classroom has two large sliding doors that fa- cilitate cross ventilation. All the buildings on the campus have two roofs. One roof shades the other so that the suns heat is not absorbed into the building. 13
  15. 15. Harry’s Coffee House Harry’s Coffee House in Anderson, SC is the first location of a new chain of walk up and drive thru coffee shops. The coffee shop is a logo building for the new brand and will be easily repeated on dif- ferent lots throughout the area. This first coffee house is located on a small lot in a shopping center off of a main highway. The build- ing is only 500 square feet and can be run by one or two people.14
  16. 16. My design was inspired by a cozy resi-dential cabin. The tall pitched shadesthe attached seating and also allowslight to enter the coffee prep space.The walk-up window is covered by asmaller awning that mirrors the roofand shows people where to place theirorder. 15
  17. 17. The coffee house is only oc- cupied by the one or two em- ployee’s working at any given time. My design accommo- dates the walk up customers by providing two different types of seating. There are two bar style seating areas where a customer sit under the shady overhang and have a place to plug in their laptop. There are also free standing covered booths. These booths could be arranged in any configuration and each location can have different amounts of these free standing tables depending on how large their lot is. Seating16

  19. 19. The Palmetto Bridge is Palmetto Bridge one component of a larger project that aims to con- nect Findlay Park to the Vista via a bike and pe- destrian path in Columbia, SC. The pathway for the project follows a former rail line path and includes an old railway tunnel. The bridge spans from the park, over the road, and leads the traveler into the entrance to the tunnel. The purpose of the bridge is to not only span the road but serve as an icon for Co- lumbia. The design for the bridge was inspired by a train trestle bridge in elevation and an organic plant formt Depot The Seaboardis Air Finlay park was the Seaboard Air Line freight Depot Late 19th Century, what now Line freight depot Seaboard Air Line Railway trestle, removed in 1991 inSeaboard Air Line Railway trestle, removed in 1991 plan.

  22. 22. SectionsThe bridge features three separate paths. Each path is different. One path connects to SECTION the sidewalk just south of 1/16”= 1’the park, one path connects to the sidewalk inside the park and one path ends in a platform observation deck withstairs that connect to the green space inside the park.The bridge is constructed of modified trusses. Some trusses are open while others are either screened or com-pletely closed. The screens are concentrated where the bridge passes over the road. They can be printed to fea-ture local art or even advertisements and announcements for community events. The closed trusses are distributedthroughout the top of the bridge to provide shade. 21

  24. 24. Campus PlanningThe first step in this project was redesign-ing a portion of Clemson University’s cam-pus. The site is at the center of campusand currently houses the union, a dininghall, some retail dining and a small fresh-man dormitory. The redevelopment of theincludes a dining hall, academic spaceand 750 beds of dormitory space. My siteplan was designed based on the idea of adowntown Main Street. The main street inour site plan connects the fraternity quadto the north of the site to the shoeboxdorms to the south of the site. The newdormitories, academic space, retail spaceand dining hall were then arranged alongmain street. 23
  25. 25. Main Street Experience24
  26. 26. One of the goals of the redesigned campus core is to keep students on campus after their freshman year. TheMain Street Apartments aim to bring the downtown living experience to Clemson’s campus. The three sophomoredormitories are situated along the main pedestrian street. The six retail spaces are conveniently located on the firstfloor directly across from the new academic space and dining hall. The idea is that students living in these apart-ments could get up, grab a cup of coffee and get to class all in their little area of campus. 25
  27. 27. North Elevation East Elevation Section B Section A The Main Street Apartments each house 132 students A and 4 faculty. Each building consists of a mix of four types of units. The top four floors of each building are - dedicated to spacious 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom apart- ments that were designed to compete with off campus housing options. The living rooms of every apartment DN DN B have a wall floor to ceiling windows. Every bathroom has a full size bath/shower combination and each apart- ment has a kitchen with a full size refrigerator. Some of the apartments on the top four floors also feature a balcony.1 Plan Interior Scale: 1/16”=1’ Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6 Scale: 1/16”=1’ 26 Unit Types Two Bedroom Apartment Four Bedroom Apartment Four Person Suite
