Development of Elevations & Fenestration

I sketched out ways to create circulation based on the last study model (made of blue foam) then brought it into section and elevation...
This is the 3D model I've been working on that's mainly based on the last study model and my sketches (made of blue foam)...

Refinement of Plans and Sections

Based on my site layout and circulation I modified my previous plans and added 2 sections to reflect site conditions and possibly what I would like to do with the site massing, orientation and circulation.



Because Red Hook is located in Coastal Flood Zone V (the most severe flood zone), my building must be elevated by at least 3 feet or more from street level. This building regulation has therefore created a new criteria for my program which will be a beach, where students and faculty can take samples of water and bacteria life within the water or on the coast for further analytical studies. I also added a dock for access to boats that can also be used for analytical experimentation.

Massing Model on Site Model

Processing Floor Plans

This process was derived from my most recent massing model showing how I plan to work with the space on the site in floor plans...(to be continued).

Hybrid Models Pt. III

Combining the 3D model of the shell hybrid and the square footage model resulted in...
The New Hybrid

This model is a hybrid of the 3D model and the square footage model. I decided to add extrusions on the back elevation (the side facing the water) to symbolize an infinite connection and the walls on the front elevation symbolize resistance.

Square Footage Diagram and Model

I created a square footage diagram and model to portray the space and height I will be working with in order to incorporate my concept on the site. The scale is 1/32" = 1'-0".

Square Footage Model



In conclusion, the model helped me to notice the restrictions with space that's going to cause me to have to make some adjustments to my design concept.
