LANDSCAPE

OAKLAND PARK, FLORIDA

In March 2014, I was awarded the House Beautification Award by the Mayor and the City of Oakland Park Florida for my design for a landscape in which I employed natural plants to complement natural stone paths, driveway, rocks, ceramic water feature.

WHEATON, ILLINOIS

The landscape of my home in Wheaton Illinois, thirty miles West of Chicago, featured native perennials. I submitted a drawing of a visual/sound barrier to the City of Wheaton to buffer the noise from the highway.

MICRO HOUSE

 

MICRO HOUSE: a compact sustainable house which can be conventionally built. One version on columns for flood prone tropical regions.

  • Cementitious exterior panels reflect solar heat, keeping the interior cool.
  • ¬†Rooftop photoelectric panels generate power. In the raised house, the PE panel rotates to follow the sun’s path.
  • A deck atop the first level provides a shaded outdoor area to gather
  • A central stack which encloses the spiral stair wicks air up to the roof.

SOLAR HOUSE

SOLAR BEACH HOUSE: Roof top photoelectric panels together with light modulating glass reflect heat and generate energy.

  • Local aggregate is added to strengthen concrete supporting columns
  • Grooves in the roof capture rain which is stored in a cistern and used for irrigation.
  • Wall panels can be easily rearranged.
  • Roof is upheld with trusses made of recycled engineered wood.
