The scheme proposes the removal of the Dun Laoghaire baths and an occupation of the new topography, the newly exposed edges, corners and surfaces of which are used to reconnect severed seafront paths and establish a new type of promenade. Bluffs are inhabited, stairs traverse granite faces and paths carve and ramp over the surface of the land. Structures find a protective expression here, clamping to the rock against the power of the wind and the sea, cradling and enfolding their occupants as they enter and exit.

DE BRETTEVILLE STUDIO / SPRING 2010 REPLICATION: HOUSING FOR AT-RISK YOUTH NEW HAVEN, CT
Using the precedent of the anomylous municipal brick vernacular found in traditional New Haven “stick frame” neighborhoods, this proposal confronts issues of privacy, membership and access in a residential concept for at-risk youth. A required fire wall folds and encloses a double-height common space at the street front of the building and private rooms that flare open to a rear garden. The envelope is cut and opened to take in light while maintaining the privacy integral to the program.

DESIGN-FABRICATION / 2004 BLUE MURDER PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIOS, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
When the owner of Blue Murder Studios, a photographic studio, relocated to an exindustrial space, he obtained a tenuous lease. I was commissioned to design and fabricate a modular wall that could be primarily assembled as required to partition the space. In the event of eviction, the system was also required to easily disassemble for transportation in his small car to a new space.

HOANG STUDIO / FALL 2011 YALE CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM NEW HAVEN, CT
The design for the Yale Contemporary divides the programmatic agenda into two distinct branches. The museum contains an archival sequence that houses temporary exhibitions in addition to a contemporary sequence that houses the permanent collection. These sequences of the two programmatic spaces alternate across a central atrium via a set of crossing staircases.
