Revit Class

For this project, I chose to design a three-story single-family residence. The constraint for this project was a simple footprint of 55′ x 75′, within which we could design either a residential or commercial structure. The purpose was to explore architectural spaces and learn the Revit software.

Inspiration: layered leaves and cantilevered buildings

The randomness of leaves that fall atop each other creates something more organic and delightful than the typical rectilinear forms, so I sought to explore this possibility in architecture.

I’m fascinated by these cantilevered single-family residential structures, the moments created in their intersections and unique spaces they provide.. This is where my concept began. 

With inspiration from layered leaves and cantilevered buildings, I developed following architectural Concept:

Cantilevered, Rotating Layers

 


Spatial Organization: Radial

The organic shapes of leaves, layered and rotated atop each other, cantilevering over the edges, producing covered and uncovered spaces. I began with sketching my ideas down, then creating a shape that would be replicated with each floor and, using trace paper, I sketched this shape out on three sheets then stacked them and rotated them on a center axis.
