05.03.2018 Using the Specsavers project, I created a series of spreadsheets for specifications. Looking furniture, sanitryware and flooring on the internet, I made choices and tried to work out how much I would need, and at what cost, if this project was to be continued. I only worked on certain areas of the projects, and... Continue Reading →
26.03.2018 For the first project of this semester, I worked on the creation of offices for an accountants firm in part of the Melbourne building, in CIT. I chose this time to create a functional space, using oblique partitions in some areas to create dynamism. In addition, one challenge was lighting, as windows were only... Continue Reading →
12.12.2017 In order to work on my detailling skills, I redesigned the female toilets in the Architecture Factory of the CIT, and produced a set of drawings similar to those used for tender. I also chose materials and specifications adapted to my projects.
07.12.2017 For the last project of the semester, I worked on redesigning the Specsavers optician shop in the Wilton shopping centre, in Cork. In order to increase the complexity of the project, I had an extra floor to work with, and had to fit more spaces than the shop has in reality. I got the... Continue Reading →
27.11.2017 Knowing how many lights are needed and how many lux a space requires is essential for a space to be user-friendly and comfortable to use. A software I just discovered, DiaLux, allows me to calculate if my lighting is adequate by drawing up the building, changing the materials in order to take their characteristics... Continue Reading →
24.11.2017 In order to continue my work on lighting, I also discovered and practice two rendering software which I enjoy very much. The first one, Shaderlight, works as an add-on to SketchUp : I can put different kinds of lights and modify the materials in order to make them more or less reflective... so that...

22.11.2017 In the continuation of the work on lighting previously done, I worked on a reflected ceiling plan to display the lights I was using and the electricity scheme. I also precisely specified the Disano lights I am using in order to make the project as realistic as possible.
20.09.2017 As I explained for the concept of this project, I worked on the creation of different student spaces in the narrow boulevard in the Architecture Factory. I included studying spaces, workshops and library as well as casual relax areas and a kitchenette. I stuck to my concept idea and refined the different areas I... Continue Reading →
24.10.2017 This project was not about design, but about detailing. In order to teach us to observe and understand how things are made, we surveyed the pods in the canteen and drew them on CAD as if the drawings were for tendering. They therefore had to include numerous details, annotations and dimensions. It was interesting... Continue Reading →
