Architecture Projects

Architectural Design Philosophy

I am fascinated by how Architecture is a synthesis of the subjective and objective. It requires an elegant balance between the artist’s touch and the mathematician’s mind. Harmony between form and function is vital. Its objective nature is what makes it work, while its subjective nature is why it is remembered. I am interested in people and how they relate and react to the built environment. This threshold between people and the built environment, to me, is Architecture.

Due to the confidential nature of some work, I am unable to share all work on here.

  • Gable Retreat

    Independent Exploration. The Gable Retreat was a small residential retreat I designed over a few days after I was inspired by a photograph I saw of the landscape shown below. I was inspired by the texture, tones, and forms to design a small little retreat in the middle of the landscape. The simple gable reflects the…

    This is a rendering and elevations I did for a project wrapping up schematic design.

  • Blurred Lines

    ZGF Pro bono Progect | Blurred Lines | Portland, Oregon. Blurred Lines was a temporary installation we put together for Design Week in Portland, OR.

Each Station had a complex but unique program that included some master planning, urban design and architectural design. Our team was heavily involved in the preliminary planning…

  • Hover House

    Independent Exploration. The Hover House was inspired by my Mother’s recent move to Niseko, a resort in Japan that attracts many skiers during the winter. In this type of climate, the building must function during varying seasonal environments. During the winter, you get snow levels that would enclose a typical house.  A typical residence will…

  • Live | Work Residence

    Independent Exploration. The Live | Work Residence is designed to address the growing need for work space at home. It recognizes the need for a cohesive, yet detached, workspace. The workspace has a street presence that can accommodate business needs such as customers, clients, shipping and receiving. Meanwhile, the rest of the residence has a level of…

  • Hillside Residence

    Independent Exploration. The Hillside Residence is a residence that takes advantage of its unique site by simultaneously giving and taking from its site. Its physical presence is diluted by the many views that permeate through it. Its transparency is designed to dilute its existence within the landscape. A bedroom and studio are intentionally detached to encourage circulation…

  • One Day House

    Independent Exploration. I refer to this as the One Day House, because it was more like an individual design charette. I spent one day putting together the program, one day designing the building, one day modeling, one day rendering, and one day on an animation. Hence the name One Day House. Needless to say, there are some…

  • 135 & Park

    Independent Exploration. The Gallery on 135th & Park is the first of a series of independent projects I created to continue to develop and explore architectural design. My goal was to create, develop, design, and present a theoretical project of my choice every few weeks as time allows. I chose a theoretical site and program to…

    Architectural Thesis. The Miami Art Museum is my Architectural thesis from the University of Oregon. I spent a few days in Miami visiting our site and museums, meeting with members of the community, and indulging in what life in Miami entails. This project was a challenge in the sense that it was a large and unique…

  • 100 W Tower

    Design Studio. The 100 W Tower is a mixed use building located in Eugene, Oregon, across the street from the Eugene Public Library. The program consists of a commercial level, hotel, and condominiums. This project was a challenge due to the verticality of the program, and its dominant presence in a city like Eugene. An effort…
