A Hostel for Touring Bicyclists and Bike Shop
Master’s Thesis, Rhode Island School of Design
This is a wood frame house abutting a brick and concrete complex. The anomaly of this construction, an odd juxtaposition of the domestic and the industrial, was a driving tension behind this design. In order to holistically reuse this space and positively influence the local area, I implemented a proactive program with sustainable building techniques.
This design celebrates those individuals whom have chosen to partake in a cleaner, more environmentally conscience alternative means of transportation. The space consists of a communal hostel, maintenance area for the touring cyclists and bike shop.
