Lotus Petal House   Custom spec home

The effort of this academic project was to design a live/ work environment on a specific site located in Vista, Ca.  Architecture is about creating an experience, an expressive blending of elements to inspire feelings. When I began this project I imagined a space that had an overarching theme that would be as prevalent on the interior as on the exterior.  This theme would contain the confidence of contemporary architecture and the creativity of abstract art.  My first thoughts were about the organic nature of design; simple, non-linear forms echoing the contours of the countryside, but none more powerful than the Zen-like experience of a lotus flower.

The stepped patio cover above and stepped concrete walkways below gently articulate the separation of spaces, while maintaining good circulation.

Flynn Residence   Custom Home

 

This custom home embodies the vertical emphasis of the dense trees surrounding the home.  The central massing mimics this feature, reaching upward towards the treetops.

The placement of the home was critical to minimizing alterations or impact to the land.

Deep overhangs and delicate orientation encourage the owner to use mechanical heating and cooling less often, ultimately minimizing the carbon footprint over the life of the home.

Foster Residence   Large scale remodel

 

This large scale remodel included a complete gut of the existing interior and an exterior facelift.



On the inside the kitchen and all the bathrooms were redesigned and modernized.  The design of each space was approached differently and given a unique style and mood.



On the outside the landscape was refined and walkways and driveways were replaced.  The house was painted and patio covers and trim were replaced to accent and compliment the new aesthetic.
