The Decorated Shed:
Commercial Architecture Details

Software used: AutoCAD 2D

​This exercise was proposed at the Architectural Detailing 2 course, which was entirely focused on Commercial Detailing. Students were provided with a "strip warehouse" and were to work with different tenants to customize their "chosen rental space to their needs (functional and expressive) and finalize the decisions before working drawings began". The chosen use was a Krav Maga dojo with two separate spaces: a retail sales (martial arts equipment), service counter, waiting area on the front of house; and changerooms (M & F with washrooms), a Universal Washroom according to AODA requirements, dojo (Fight Studio), exercise room and office (mezzanine) on the back of house.
