Off 7th Avenue The Problem Assume commercial buildings are against this main thoroughfare, and create a pedestrian friendly environment on theinterior of the lot. A one way trafﬁc lane with parking is required. Pedestrian Entry - Freehand Perspective Plan of development - Drafted in pencil
Proposed Approach- Separate vehicular and pedestrian ﬂow through elevation - Texture and curve the road to slow trafﬁc - Construct drive isle with jointed, colored concrete, to contrast with and highlight pedestrian crossings - Provide deciduous trees to protect people from the summer sun, and add fall interest- Ungulate drive Isle with crossings at grade to slow trafﬁc Density / Zoning Analysis Pen Drafted on Mylar 2’-0” x 4” Detail model at pedestrian entry 1’ x 1’ Scale Model of development in Basswood
Multifamily Housing Design The Problem On an existing empty lot near the university, develop a site scheme formultifamily housing, based on code research. Create plans and models to represent your ideas. Proposed Site Solution - Under-unit parking to minimize footprint and maximize landscaping - Ascending structure to separate homes from public roadway - Western path to the bus stop also provides ﬁre truck access. - Stairways between individual units for access to parking & greenbelt Deductive - Front pathway of units overlook greenbelt Model in ClayExisting Site Separation of public and Private through section
Proposed Unit Solution - Full-height windows to maximize views and feeling of openness. - 1st and second story units - Public space on the access corridor - Private space separated through elevation or distance in a linear fashion. - Units range from 654 to 1,122 s.f. - Varied in layout and orientation to avoid monotany of repetition. 1/4 scale basswood model of Unit StackBackside of Unit Stack ‘Low Front Unit” Schemes could ‘High Front Unit” Scheme with in-line drive Western shade wall in red reflect not optimize landscaping lane and parking optimize landscaping, color of northern neighbor. and public / private separation.
Knoll Furniture The Problem Design a new building in Cavecreek, Arizona to house a fabrication studio and showroom for Knoll Furniture. The site given was a vacant lot in Cavecreek, The western Arizona, at the north end of the Phoenix metro area. facing backside This exposed, desert site slopes north to Cavecreek Parkway, with access from the lot’s south side only. Setbacks were to be considered and only minimal parking was required. Detail view ofWestern Screening and Mass Wall Along the main entry, anchoring columns are designed to evoke a sense of fabrication.
Proposed Approach- Site the building to take advantage of the slope andview to the northwest.- Create a two story structure with a lofted second ﬂoor,separated from the exterior wall.- Reveal the fabrication of the building structure- Reduce lighting needs via a translucent roof structure,insulated by a pillow of air.- Protect from direct sun with: - Minimized southern exposure Concept model of retractable shade sails - East and west overhangs - Mass wall and exterior screen along the west.

(Construction Admin only) 51,000+ (Design and CA) While I took this photo, the Shell & Core of this building are actually a collaborative design by others in my ﬁrm. Idirected / managed suite design for most of the Tenants, so this photo I took serves only as context. I have been working on tenant suites since Fall 2007.Currently some are in early design, a few under construction,and several are now open for business. Tenant construction will continue through the end of 2009. Currently I am involved in Construction Administration for the Imaging and Surgery Centers, as well as directing thedesign of the Women’s Imaging suite. Many of the suites ran concurrently as a part of larger bid packages.

Conceived by Tim Riddle and Nick Rehnberg, I provided feedback on numerous design elements. My primary involvement on the shell building was to design the details and perform ofﬁce and ﬁeld construction administration. It opened in September, 2005. When construction of the Shell started, I began development of several tenant suites including ones for Retinal Surgeons, Ophthalmology, and two Orthopedic groups. I was responsible for complete documentdevelopment from Schematic Design through ConstructionDocuments, as well as ﬁeld and ofﬁce CA services. Tenant suites were ﬁnished by December, 2005.

Yuma Rehabilitation HospitalType: Extended Stay Orthopedic Rehabilitation HospitalGross Area: 40,000+ square feet in 1 storyLocation: Yuma, ArizonaOccupancy: February 2003Involvement: Whole building, Design Only A collaboration with Tracy Rasmussen of Boulder Associates All photos on these two sheets were taken by Tracy Rasmussen, for site visits during construction, as I have never visited the project site. Under the direction of Curtis Chong, Tracy and I collaborated on the design of this facility and completely developed the project. The layout was based on a corporate prototype, though the facade was reworked to be more site speciﬁc. The interior plan was reworked as well to meet local regulations and changes to program.Sunshades were added based on analysis of sun angles, and they work in perfect harmony with the seasonsthroughout the year. Darker colors were chosen to help the building stand out against the sun.
