  2. 2. This project tested my ability to brand my concept as well as design it. I created a space that acted as a gallery and as an oxygen bar. While you were hooked up to oxygen, you could fully “absorb” the digitally-projected art. This innovative space was designed for the Church Street Community Centre named , “405 Church” . For furniture choices, I wanted to be sure to include orb-like furniture, so I featured designs from Eero Aarnio’s work and feature Keith Haring, an important artist to the Gay community. portfolio.indd 2 1/29/08 1:16:06 AM
  3. 3. 405church st. This was a group project I worked on to come up with a community center for the Gay and Lesbian Community, here in Toronto. In a team, we created a centre that housed a variety of This retail design project is devised based on the 405 retail outlets. The centre Church Street Multi-Cultural Centre. It has a lively and boasted a recycling flexible interior street with kiosk vendors and temporary depot, pet-specific performance space. The centre has a high-end clothing considerations and tons boutique, a café and restaurant, spa, home decor store of outdoor lounging and children’s apparel retailer.

  4. 4. This is a concept for an office plan I was designing while on exchange in Hong Kong. I chose to incorporate shipping containers into my design and literally “crash” them into the existing glass facade. I chose shipping containers, to honour the importance of the shipping industry in Hong Kong and how many containers occupy their ports. I designed a live-work scenario to have people not work from home, but live at work. Each employee would occupy a container as their apartment and then use the public shared areas for the rest of their activities. portfolio.indd 4 1/29/08 1:17:16 AM
  5. 5. These are the cad plans and sections for a corporate office in Hong Kong. Hong Kong, having the densest living in the world, I wanted to focus on opening up space and really allowing employees to enjoy their work atmosphere and be able to incorporate exercise and socializing into their workday. This concept is futuristic, in the sense that society is not quite ready to “live” at their places of work but, soon, this may be the reality. This concept also saves energy in that the space is being lit and heated for people to occupy 24 hours a day. portfolio.indd 5 1/29/08 1:17:23 AM

  7. 7. This is a reflected ceiling plan for an office building level. I researched extensively to solve lighting capacities and convenient switch locations for users. Ceiling solutions were also customized to suit each section of the office. I specified luminaires and bulbs for aesthetic and for functionality. portfolio.indd 7 1/29/08 1:17:51 AM

  12. 12. FINANCIAL SECTION DEAR STOCKHOLDERS, In this Annual Report, a comprehensive strategic review has been written by our Chief Executive Officer,William Lauder. I am personally very pleased with the growth strategy that he has outlined for our Company. There is little that I can add to his plan,which is well under way as you read this. My goal is to call attention to a few global trends and market forces that offer context and per- spective to this excellent plan. In the past 12 months, I have visited over 15 markets throughout the world, all of which are in various stages of development.The most compelling trend I see is the power of our brands in all countries, from the most mature and well-developed to those that are just emerging. For exam- ple: M.A.C has just launched with great success in both China and India; Crème de la Mer has gotten off to a wonderful start in China; Estée Lauder is about to launch in Vietnam, following a successful Clinique launch in that same market; Jo Malone is a great success in Australia, and Aveda has celebrated its first anniversary in Japan. Travel has become the number one consumer luxury in the world. Hundreds of millions of travel- ers now swarm through the world’s newly constructed airline terminals, as well as cruise ships, and resorts. The Estée Lauder Companies is brilliantly positioned to sell our products to those travelers, no matter where they are.Our Travel Retail Division creates products strictly for this channel, which provides a source of growth for us as well as a potent way for consumers to sample our products. I am also seeing the growing importance of “showcase markets”,where both local consumers 2005 and visitors are flooding the stores. Hong Kong expects 12 million visitors from Mainland China, and Macau will be close behind with 10 million visitors.Dubai,where there are counters in all of the major stores as well as in the international airport, anticipates 21 million visitors in 2006 from Europe, the Middle East and India. Even Las Vegas, which continues to grow dramatically, will receive an estimated 41 million visitors from throughout the world. Our Company is using these showcase markets not only for sales and profit generation, but as windows to a new and eager consumer base.The strategies that William Lauder has outlined, coupled with the few trends that I have just mentioned, should provide growth well into the next decade.

  16. 16. These are drawings and sketches for the lobby of a Northern Ontario hotel complex. Our concept was to breathe life back into to tired city dwellers and give them a fresh look at Canada’s beautiful wilderness. In my design, I have designed the experience so that the user would park underneath the actual building and climb into the center of the space to fully take in their first view of the landscape. portfolio.indd 16 1/29/08 1:20:31 AM
  17. 17. This was “an innovative retail application” for the underground sidewalk system in Toronto. In doing my research, I realized how much I had to go to the toilet... but there were not many public washrooms in good condition.

  22. 22. This was a furniture design project to create a transformable and transportable table. I designed a table that could be ideal for laptop and storage use.
