  • Drawing inspiration from a common toaster, these cabins contrast greatly against the natural setting of Californias redwood forest. Large windows flood the space with natural light while an elevated patio alludes to the sensation of camping in the redwood canopies. The cabins have a small footprint, providing a sense of privacy for campers and low environmental impact.

  • Cantilever is situated in an olive orchard in Napa Valley, celebrating the harvest and versatile use of California olives. A series of patios allow for scenic views of the surrounding landscape as well as space for outdoor entertaining. The long, central hallway was inspired by the letter Y.

    Various materials such as glass, stone and steel create a contemporay palette for the space. Floor to ceiling windows provide guests with amazing views of Napa Valley. Cantilever is perched on a hill and series of legs, maximizing views of the olive orchard and vineyards.

  • The stone chimney serves as a focal point for the building, while the multiple patios draw guests outside. Cantilevers unique shape emphasizes the horizontal line, creating long vistas that look out onto the environment and blur the disintction between interior and exterior space.

A hybrid solution was also sketched; a conceived hypothesis for not only managing the citys stormwater but also capturing the rising seawater resulting from global warming.

    By synthesizing man-made infrastructure with the ecological benefits of wetland areas, a hybridized solution of both inward and outward flows of water might be addressed even with limited available land adaptaion.

    90% of Californias natural vernal pools have been destroyed, due to agriculture, city growth and infrastructure.

    Vernal pools are temporary pools of water situated on a dense layer of clay, providing a unique habitat for distinctive wildlife and highly prized for their seasonal floral rings.

    Anderson Marsh and the location of clay soils

    Anderson Marsh is a California State Park and one of the few remaining environments in the valley still suitable for vernal pools. Because the park desires a larger pool, a bulldozing method has been selected for this particular site.

    - Top soil is removed and saved- Dia. of 40 ft and depth of 18 in- Compaction of central pool

    - Construct subgrade dam- Burm outer ring to prevent overflow- Compact soil

    - Hydro seed burms and ponds- Spread excavated top soil- Compact soil

  • The Spine is a series of stepping stones that jet out into the constructed ecosystem, creating unconventional perspectives of the floral rings commonly associated with vernal pools. These stepping stones vary at different heights, limiting the times of the year when visitors can access the pool due to inundation. During the wet season, vernal pools require little disturbance allowing various species of amphibians and flowers to develop. A segmented series of spine stepping stones are also placed along the path leading up to the pool, serving as a wayfinding techinque and seating.

    The Spine was not only meant to entice visitors into the constructed vernal pool but also serve as a new identity for Anderson Marsh.This intervention serves as an artistic sculpture, contrasting with the surrounding ecostyem while having a minimal impact on the vitalhabitat as well.
