farmers market
M1 // May-August 2014
The Cheticamp Farmer’s Market was a Design/Build project which took place during
the summer of 2014 along with nine other students. The site is located in Cheticamp,
NS, a small Acadian town in Cape Breton made up of about 3,000 residents.
The structure is made using locally sourced green oak and is held together by a
hybrid lashing/clamping system, which all ties into a concrete slab floor. In addition
to designing and building the grid shell, our team also took on landscaping
and furniture design/building. We installed permeable paving at the entrances,
constructed a band stand, built a berm to reduce street noise and laid all new sod.
After several community collaboration meetings, new tables were specially built for
each vendor at the market as well.
The next phase of the project is to introduce a sun shading system of criss-crossing
wooden laths throughout the structure and to install a bench on the back curve. As
for the future of the site, a community garden has been initiated in the field directly
behind the structure to encourage the children of the town to grow food and sell it at
the market.

national park treehouse
b4 // work term // august-december 2013
The Fundy National Park Treehouse is a project that was first conceived in 2012.
Initial site work began at this time but the design of the grid shell structure did
not begin until the following year.
I was on the team of designers tasked with making this unprecedented type of
construction work. What makes the Treehouse project unique is that it is a grid
shell that does not touch the ground. It wraps into itself like a cocoon. This type of
structure has never been built before so the design and building process was a
lot of thinking while doing, a lot of testing ideas out by physically building.
This project required very detailed drawings, models and accurate documentation
for clear communication with our partner engineers and client, Parks Canada.

This splitting and slicing lent itself to the existence of natural lighting and
green spaces within the building. Some of these features include south facing
balconies stacking the facade and a staggered atrium piercing the building
acting as circulation as well as an impromtu performance space.

In the design studio this semester, we are presented with the task
of studying the juxtaposition of urban conditions on the Dartmouth
waterfront and asked to improve the existing site by developing a new
master plan for the area. This is done by thinking about the city as
one entity and the waterfront as another and how to use housing as a
means to mitigate these two zones.
The first part of the term is about studying the site at all scales, from
its context within the province down to changes in topography over
each individual building site. As I began to study the site, a gap
appeared between Dartmouth Cove and Sullivan’s Pond; it is the only
non-continuous part of a chain of lakes and rivers that run all the way
from Halifax Harbour to the Bay of Fundy. The first step in the new
uban design strategy became to expose this buried canal by street
simplification and the implementation of public green space. the step
Building Site
in progress is to design high density housing in this green space.

ross
creek solar showers
b3-4 // May-december 2013
The Ross Creek Solar Showers was a project that began in
2011 at the Ross Creek Center for the Arts in Canning, NS.
Unfortunately, the the first time it was built, the construction
failed and it needed to be rebuilt.
I was a member of the team who worked to rebuild the Solar
Showers in the summer of 2013 and then again was involved
with the project that fall to create a set of as-built drawings to
obtain necessary permits.
The shower pavilion is designed to appear as if it is cantilevering
off a steep hill, looking out to the woods beyond. It is made up
of four private shower stalls each framing a specific view, taking
inspiration from the Perry Lakes Park restrooms in Marion, AL by
Rural Studio.
