the summer of construction

Currently at my Architecture firm archiTEXTUAL we are in the process of Construction Administration for five house renovations across Washington DC. These are the first projects I began working on when starting at archiTEXTUAL in January. Furthermore, these are my first designs to be built! Lots of firsts. In addition to a new roof deck that is rearing into construction soon, we are also in Construction Document phase on two major houses in DC and Maryland; and Design Development phase on an amazing house renovation in Tenleytown. 

Below are my photos from three of our five projects currently in construction, to see more please visit http://www.architextual.com/blog/5underconstruction

New Container Home Design!

I'm very happy to present a project that I have been working on for some time now!

I designed a home on the ocean bluffs of Australia, near Bondi Beach! The home's entire structure is comprised of recycled shipping containers. The building envelope is glass and pine wood. The home bends with the view and forms a courtyard for nature in the center. 

The program, site and thesis (build a home from shipping containers) were part of an International Design Competition from [AC-CA]. I didn't win but i'm still pretty proud!, check it out and tell me what you think!
