  • To Work + To Live Urban Housing

    technologies usedAutoCAD,SketchUp, Indigo Render, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign,

    part 1 was a group work to prepare a master-plan for Bellgrove site in East Glasgow.

    part 2 each student needs to develope a par-ticular part of masterplan by developing multi-use urban housing. It should house 40-60 in-dividuals and should combine work and living spaces.

    My choosen block faces public spaces on its south and east facades.The groundfloor is kept as work- studio spaces for residents while upper floors for living.Flats are designed so that living spaces would face south side and public square while bedrooms are fac-ing north and private courtyard.According to orientation , south side has a lot of glazing to benefit from solar gains and reduce heating demands , while north side consits of smaller windows pattern.Shutters system is used to protect building from overheating as well as to create greater privacy if needed.

    The requirement of brief was to cre-ate a weather monitoring station which is open for wider public.

    The building is situated in old mills site in St. Andrew.Circulation core becomes as a transmission element between public and private, old and new. Moreover, copper cladding re-acts to weather during the time cre-ating unique appearance of facade. Roof lights provide a good quality of light to different activities spaces. Thermal shutters and solar panels make the building energy efficient during the whole year.

    The requirement of brief was to cretae a worship place in Invera-ray.

    The place I have created is non-denominational chapel which is open for all people. It has two main spaces : one is for contemplation and thinking another is for commu-nity gatherings. Flexible gather-ing space can support different programatic events enriching its community.

    technologies usedAutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop,hand drawing

    The requirement of brief was to create a shelter in Mount Stuart.Corten steel structure is situated on the shore of Firth of Clyde. The shape has developed from the beetle seen on the site. It is a diverse experience to be in-side as the light penetrates from the upper shell as well as the front surface would frame the view where the horizon meets the water.

    SELECT Sculpture Competition
