  10. 10. LEHIGH VALLEY HOSPITAL: A PLACE FOR REFLECTION A three week project designing a space for quiet reflection that could appeal to any culture or religion. The space occupies the second floor of Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The challenge of this project was to design an interfaith reflective space through form making and light. The basis for the concept was formed through thinking about spiritual spaces in the natural world, specifically mountains and Finishes sunrises. These inspired the forms of enclosure and light creating a peaceful respite where users could reflect. Early concept models20

  17. 17. LUXURY BATH VILLA: BERGAMO, ITALY A three week project designing the inner courtyard of a 450 year old villa in the Lombard region of Italy. The villa enclosed several courtyards, for this project one was chosen to surround a luxurious bath and garden adjacent to the clients bedroom. The owners of this villa, an affluent couple with idiosyncratic interests; required a dressing room as well as garden areas for meditation, sunning and lounging. 3 2 4 1 1 Dressing 2 Bathroom 3 Outdoor Terrace 4 Sunning/ Fencing Space history I was particularly inspired by the eccentric interests of the couple while designing the spaces. I wanted to develop ways in which the spaces, detailing and materials reflected the couple’s personalities, lifestyle and realtionship. The male was a Swedish industrialist that enjoyed theatrical productions, swordsmanship and medieval magic. His wife was a tempermental Chilean stage actress who enjoyed body light art and Arabic calligraphy. -A small bridge connecting the indoor bath and the the outdoor space inspired by the clients love for medieval castles. pattern -An elevated shaded area with filtered sunlight allows for the clients lounging and creates natural body art via the sun and arabic geometric pattern overhead. transparency shadow34

  21. 21. 2010 RETAIL DESTINATION42
  22. 22. PERUTOPIA RETAIL SHOP: BROOKLYN, NY A two semester project that began with the selection of the site, program and ultimately the concept for the design of the space. The site is near a waterfront in Brooklyn, NY chosen for its proximity to a park and scenic views. The goal of this project was to create a retail destination that encouraged gathering, learning and shopping. As a destination, the program contained a cafe, a gallery/exhibition space and a workshop where weaving methods would be taught. The building presented a unique design opportunity as it was previously a coal burning industrial warehouse. A 72 ft. trough remained spanning most of the space. I imagined the trough as an oversived weaving loom running throughout, relating the space to the products and concept. Ground Floor Mezzanine The products sold are made by Peruvian women using ancient and modern weaving techniques. These techniques along with the ancient terracing Peruvian ruins of Machu Picchu inspired the design of the interior.44
  23. 23. T he building is divided into three key spaces for gathering, shopping and learning. Each space is visually connected, but separated via vertical circulation. The entrance contained the gallery, cafe and terraced display under a ceiling of woven ropes. The sales floor is on the main level along with the cashwrap and support spaces. Lastly, the workshop is on the mezzanine overlooking the salesfloor. East-facing Section South-facing Section North-facing Section46

  26. 26. DIGITAL TEXTILE DESIGN FOR CONTRACT USE A six week project designing three textile patterns at three scales, creating color lines and explaining underlying inspirations for each. My inspiration came from the architecture and concept of my retail destination project. When looking at the section of the building, I was inspired by the trough structure and I used it to make a large and medium scale pattern. The small scale pattern was inspired by threads that become unwoven, resulting in wavy lines. As a collection, this design would best be used for hospitality. The patterns were created using half drop, overlays and all-over pattern design techniques. Cut pile Fabric Woven Fabric Woven Fabric52
