Site Plan Concept : : Series of terraces with drainage redirected to lowpoint on site where bioswale emptied out into pond which supports various local indeginous plant types which grow good things for the house.
Development of AEC Hawaiian Homes project incorporating Topographic 3D modeling notions of bioswale.
Topographical points added as part of surveying course. Site Topography contoured to sculpt the rainwater into managed on site bioswale ponds supporting local indeginous vegetation.
Freed from the constraints of hip roofs this modification was done for the surveying class incorporating butterfly roofs to gather the rainwater into central bioswale running the site length to lowpoint

Strict guidelines were provided including : : Hip Roof, 1500 S.F. , Follow the construction methods employed by the program which is setup to teach carpentry students how to build the "Hawaiian Homes" package design. My take on these restrictions included : : Expanding the footprint by utilizing the notion of "Breezeway" & the idea of a bioswale indent to bring nature into the envelope and provide views of outside into the interior. Configuration of windows in non traditional manner so as to frame views of the groundspace as well as providing some vitality and animation to the facade.
