PROJECTS

Plattsburgh International Airport

 

Pen named 'Quebec's US Airport', the new 32,000 sf airport terminal is located at the former Plattsburgh Air Force base.  As the senior project architect for C&S Companies, I was responsible for the design and project team coordination.  The building exterior stone and brick capture the essence of the original Air Base structures.

second level loft area and skylight overlooking the first floor. The cottage is to have a master bedroom and bath on the main level, as well as a half bath, kitchen, living room, and dining area.  The loft area can be configured for future bedrooms and a bathroom.  

 

A  basement for HVAC and electrical space as well as space for a recreation area and a walkout at grade level.  A two car garage is attached to the cottage structure.

Commercial/Living Space

Conceptual design for renovation of an existing 8,200 sf, one-story structure and over-build a second level addition. The front of the first floor is to retain an existing restaurant.  The remainder of the first floor and second floor are to be a mix of  office/commercial spaces and/or apartments/dormitory living spaces.  

Animation

My latest construction animation of a small house created in SketchUp.  In the interest of learning, I tried some different things. You

may notice that the materials fly in in a more random manner instead of as it would be built in reality.

A two story residence with a formal entrance leading to a solarium and first floor.  An open stairway leads to the second level with the corridor overlooking the solarium.  The second level has two bedrooms, bathroom, master bedroom, and on-suite.   A spacious floor area above the garage contains a additional living/mancave space.

 

Interior

The interior provides an open floor plan with the entrance opening onto the south facing solarium for natural daylight.
