Crafthouse Program

Craft Studio Plan Project – Program

Building cost will be a maximum of $200,000 (plus land) with sizes ranging between 1400 and 1800 square feet featuring an open-plan design. Primary target market home buyers are adults 35-55 with 2-3 kids. Secondary target buyers are empty-nesters. Homes shall include; 2.5 baths, 3 bedrooms—one being a master suite  (if possible on 1st floor) that includes a tub and a shower, two-car garage (attached preferred), rear deck, front porch, air conditioning, and built on a basement. Other home features should include; walk-in closets, linen closets, laundry room (same floor as master suite), large kitchen with island, and a home office/study. All designs must emphasize energy efficiency in the overall design, especilaity: insulation, windows, and appliances. Simple, but effective low-cost sustainable design and green features must be incorporated to attract today’s home buyers. Details and features are more important than square footage. 

Deductions inclue: detached garage (built at a later date) and slab-on-grade with frost-protected shallow footing.

Options include: fireplace and 9ft first floor ceilings.

Row House

Saturday, 06 April 2013 16:02 Published in Background Studio Written by

The course is described as: understanding the nature of background buildings with design focusing on residential and/or commercial buildings in a traditional small town or urban neighborhood. Following a precedent study and project, I applied the precedent information to class projects located in the city of Niles, MI. These included a flex and corner flex mixed-use buildings and row houses done with a variety of media—pencil, colored pencil, water colors, and SketchUp. Although not required, I engineered the structural system (with knowledge gained in structures class) for all of my designs. Commercial buildings include features that allows natural daylight to flow deep into building while reducing the suns intensity during the summer months. 

Row House drawings are on display at Andrews University.

Presentation Board-Niles

Placemaking Studio builds upon lessons of previous studios but also emphasizes the making of compelling spatial and architectural relationships that speak to our human nature and connect us to surroundings and to each other. The course project proposed converting a shopping center and office complex, located along the St. Joseph River in Niles, MI, into a usable urban space that draws people to the city center and the rivers edge. Site requirements included a chapel, meeting hall, farmer’s market, mixed-use buildings,  library, and exterior gardens. My design was the only scheme that placed the semi-private space in the center of the site flanked by private buildings—mixed-use faces the street matching the context of Niles—townhouses face the river—all increase the cities tax base while providing the site owner a greater return on their investment.

Model is on display at Andrews University.
