P O T E N T I A L I T YOld Country Buffet2007-2008KCA Architects - Fairfax, VAPotentialityBuilding sites are not only restricted by the law but sometimes offer the chal-lenge of a lack of space. A designer must maximise on the potential of a space inorder to provide the client with the best use of his/her money. Taking advantageof the potentiality allows the client the possibility to achieve a high profit. Thisspace utilized every inch of space for the kitchen while providing ample seatingfor customers.Software used: AutoCad, Photoshop Chester Lech 04 Chester Lech Chester Lech 03 Chester Lech 05

S I M P L I F I C T A I O N Mama Lucia’s Pizza 2007-2008 KCA Architects - Fairfax, VA Simplification In retail, as in architecture, it is about simplification for the user, client, contrac- tor, etc. The purpose of a space should be evident visually and not confuse the consumer. The details of describing the structure of a project should be clear visually as well. Notes and signage need to be used when necessary when the architecture cannot fully describe a space. This project was made simple by al- lowing customers to understand precisely the way in which they were to traverse the space. Software used: AutoCad Chester Lech 10Chester Lech 08 Chester Lech 11

The floor, ceiling,walls, door handles, parapets, phases of demolition, etc. require a consistentthought process. Below represents only a small portion of what a good designerprovides to the contractor for a complete job.Software used: AutoCad Chester Lech Chester Lech 19 Chester Lech 19 Chester Lech Chester Lech 17

Shopping requires amix of both. Users want to be able to see the products throughout the store fromwherever they stand, while not feeling engulfed within that space. A large retailspace such as this Bloomingdales, perfectly implements both desires seamlessly.Software used: AutoCad Chester Lech L-24 Chester Lech L Chester Lech L-20Chester Lech L-21 Chester Lech L-
