Gallaudet University (School for the deaf, Washington DC) Masterplan & Preliminary building design | freelance project with DKa Emily has created preliminary design / planning studies of major campus districts where future development is planned concurrent with work on a Campus Master Plan. One example is the 6th Street Mixed-Use development at a prominent campus entry point which will contain both student and multi-family housing, retail, a Deaf History Museum and campus services.

Design with Fire was a competition entry for 2012 Neocon Canada Exhibition creating a fireplace utilizing a specified gas fireplace insert. I was interested in designing something small-scale and made it a personal challenge to design and document in one <rather long> day. The K fireplace plays the role of everything you would expect from a traditional hearth – a place to gather with friends and family or just to curl up with a book, with plenty of nooks and […]
Project with SRG Partnership | PCC was planning a 100,000 gsf transit-oriented academic building located along the Max line at TriMet’s Willow Creek/SW 185th Transit Center. The existing park & ride site was an under-utilized sea of asphalt, consisting mostly of surface parking with an inefficient bus turnaround / drop off area. As project architect/designer, I worked with Tri-Met and PCC to envision an efficient and pedestrian-friendly transit hub with an academic building for PCC’s Workforce Training program. Ground level […]
Project with Allied Works Architecture | Bluehour is an elegant yet comfortable restaurant and bar in the Weiden + Kennedy building. It’s enduring popularity over the last decade has withstood the test of time. As a recent graduate, I had worked in the service industry during my undergrad years as a server & bartender and was able to readily apply the hands-on user experience into the design. I saw the project from design through the construction phase and developed the […]
Visualizations I prepared for a local contractor to demonstrate a side-by-side comparison of three different construction strategies and show the contractor’s expertise in managing a high-density mixed-use multi-family project and to help the client evaluate and quickly make an informed decision about the approach. In addition to a time-lapse animation, I created graphic diagrams to demonstrate construction techniques that otherwise may have not been understood.

Kiriazis House I am not getting many calls from people ready to build a dream house these days, economy such that it is. I am, however talking to people about interventions – simple ways to improve functionality and aesthetics without breaking the bank. The original mid-century modern home designed by architect Bill Fletcher had some interesting features, but the owners longed for more southern light and a more welcoming entry “room’. They wanted to give the home a facelift and […]
