Pulaski Park is a public park that is located in
Northhampton Ma. Currently it is an under utilized
site where there is bad circulation and activities
happening that are illegal. The new design incorporates
a proposed hotel located on the southern end, a large
green space for sun bathing and throwing a frisbee.
Café and art galleries are proposed in the
abandoned building on the eastern side of the site. The
new park is a place for pubic gatherings, a place for
eating your lunch or a hangout spot for kids after school.

New England Village is a multi-family residential
development located in Amherst Ma. The design focuses on
providing significant public open green space to the residents
within the village. Each section of housing was designed
with a private garden which is defined by landform as well as
screens. Parking within the development is grouped which
also helps to preserve open space. Within the residential
development an interconnecting path system is created and
this links the open green space with the homes of residents.
Stormwater management was a major concern
within this project because a wetland is located on the
southern edge of the site. Swales and collecting basins were
designed along the edge of roads and path systems to help
reduce pollutants and sediment going into the waterway.

The Arc of Recreation is currently an under utilized railroad bed corridor located
in the city of Springfield. After researching and visiting the site we found that the corridor
was a great opportunity for the city. The city lacked open green space within its most
urbanized areas. There was also a disconnect because of the railroad corridor and the
grade change between the four neighborhoods of Bay, Mcknight, Old Hill and Upper Hill. A
design for the two mile section of corridor was created as well as access point to the arc.
Site Analysis Master Plan
Bay street is a major gateway to access the linear
park system and is located in between the neighborhoods
of Bay and McKnight. The majority of demographics
in the city of Springfield are under the age of 18. With
such a high percentage of young residence in the
city a design was created and tailored to their needs.
The design includes a childrens playground, concrete
screens that can be used by children to draw on with chalk
as well as many seating areas. Stormwater management
is also of great interest and specific areas on the site are
designated to not only collect the stormwater within the
site but also a collect a portion of water from the streets.

The farm house is located in Fitchburg, Ma and sits on
40 acres of land. Over the years of living at my parents house I
have completed numerous projects such as ponds, driving range,
freestanding walls, retaining walls and planting design. Here we
see an area that was once extremely wet and not usable. A vernal
stream is present and small pond was created. The pond edge is
supported by a retaining wall and I have used iris flowers and pickerel
plants to give color and the plants also create a habitat for fish.

Java Chocolates is a concept of
a website. We were asked to design a
website that would have a taste gallery,
price list and contact information.
The taste gallery is a way for
customers to be more interactive on the
website and give the sensation of eating
a piece of their world famous chocolate.
The website is a way for the
customer to get a feeling of what the
company is like and ultimately leave
with urge to eat some Java Chocolates.
