  2. 2. A Smart Car Dealership comes to life with imagination and environmental considerations. The site is located in Austin, Texas on South Lamar Boulevard at the Cheapo Records building. The concept of the Smart Car Dealership is a “toy car for the adult”. An exposed ceiling is diffused by nylon coverings. The cars are highlighted in the showroom as well as on the “toy car” ramp. The design is a celebration of fanciful shapes and a play on scale with environmental elements in mind. DESIGN 6

  9. 9. The historic Schneider Building transforms to be a home for the mayor of Austin, Texas. The historical context of the Schneider Building is embellished with a rejuvenated energy of the past intermingled with the present. Organization of space exudes a harmonious balance of private and public space in an urban setting, which is adjacent to Austin’s city hall. Ethereal spaces evoke the anachronistic stories of spirits that once inhabited the Schneider Building. The design is a celebration of the impressions of people, stories, and experiences left behind. The transcendental presence is achieved through treatment of light, shadows, and translucent materials, which guide one from the known to the unknown. The lingering presence of the past is unfolded through multiple layers of light. The interaction required for dual-purpose furniture further emphasizes the continual interplay between the past and the present. A piece of the past is brought forward by the ghost of the Schneider building. DESIGN 5

  17. 17. The building that houses Kruger Jewelery Store displays a necessity for modernization in an analyzation of the streetscape on Congress Avenue. The design incorporates a new retail ground floor with a new tenant, and condominiums on the second and third floor. The initial sketches focus on a door study where cuts of reclaimed wood alternate and pivot at a central axis. The nature inspired door was originally intended for a wellness salon named “Salud”. However, the eye-catching door is now the face of a travel agency that specializes in outdoor adventures. The retail entrance is located on Congress Avenue, while the residential entrance faces the alley on 8th Street with included parking and handicap accessibility. The four condominiums share a roof top garden. The material palette includes local Texas limestone, steel, and reclaimed wood to give juxtaposition to the victorian offices across the alley on 8th Street. The interior materials reflect two contemporary styles: a funky flare and a more sophisticated palette. Lastly, the front two condominiums have a large street view of Congress Avenue with floor to ceiling windows and large balconies. DESIGN 4
