As a continuation of Foreground Building Studio, Integrative Design Studio is an in-depth consideration of building systems, their relationship, and further development of the buildings design and design development. My YMCA scheme works within the context of the surrounding buildings—materials and first level stores and shops. The building is 89,000 square feet spread over five stories and includes 264 parking spaces hidden behind shops and below grade that replace the current 60. Some building features: a gym, running track, two pools, saunas, tennis and racquetball courts, weight and cardiovascular training, aerobics, cafe, and childcare. Structural engineering was completed with knowledge gained in Andrews Structures courses. Additionally, I completed a building analysis with Autodesks’ Ecotect and engineered a HVAC system for the entire building. 

Revit sheets and renderings were used for NCARB accreditation and are on display at Andrews University.
