Installationen är utformad som en inre rumslig upplevelse som formas utifrån relationen mellan ditt seende och en vävd träkonstruktion. Strukturen är gjord av långa tunna reglar som är sammansatta för att skapa ett rum. Dessa reglar är sammanflätade och skapar en rumslighet som har en mängd olika djup tack vare sin uppbyggnad. Konstruktionen är skapad för att fånga ljus. Konstruktionen är täckt i en ljusgenomsläpplig duk. Detta resulterar i ett inneslutet rum som fungerar såväl under festivalens ljusa som mörka timmar.
Under dagen kan man öppna en öppning i fasaden som släpper in ljuset från den unikt lågt stående solen och ungefär klockan 12.30 står solen i rak linje med Rådhusesplanaden. Under kvällen introduceras tre sorters ljus som var och en på sitt sätt förändrar upplevelsen av rummet. Ljuset används för att utforska och förändra rumsligheten. Marken är täckt av mörk bark som absorberar ljuset och dämpar stegen när du rör dig i det föränderliga rummet.

This project situated at the Church of Our Lady Help of Christians has been designed as an extension to the original 1950's church. In opposition to developing a separate stand alone building the design developed from the idea that a Pastoral Centre is an extension of the Church. The project proposes that a new cloister be attached to the existing church building from which three main functions are connected. A Community Hall, Chapel and choir practice room and a series of community meeting rooms connect the church to the proposed community garden.
In addition it is proposed that the entrance to the church would be altered be removing the existing steps and replacing them with a new parish square. In keeping with the existing mass concrete church the proposed new structure is to be made from in situ white concrete with titanium dioxide additive. The interior will be lined in material panels, natural oak boards or in the case of the chapel French polished oak sections.

Atlantic City Holocaust Memorial
Holocaust
The proposed memorial site sits on the axis between the suburban fabric of the city, predominately existing to the west of Albany Avenue and the tourist and commercial centre of the city to the east. Building on the formal composition of the city the proposition situates itself on a north south axis with the existing World War I Memorial located in O'Donnell Park. Albany Avenue opens into Route 40 formed from the Oregon Trail navigating from Atlantic City, west to San Francisco.
Visitors are presented with both the World War I Memorial and the Holocaust Memorial. The Holocaust Memorial
appears as a black Chamber in the Atlantic Ocean extending the city's fabric into the sea, connecting all continents through the moving waters of the ocean. Amongst the sand and removed from the sea a room, described as the Orientation Chamber, sits marking access from the boardwalk to the beach. As a result the memorial site expands beyond a bounded territory encompassing the city's formal layout, its boardwalk and its inherent natural and man made landscape

The project focuses on the idea of making rooms for sound and light. How can a room be an instrument for sound, a chamber for light the backdrop for artistic production and consumption? The vertical scale of the Auditorium bookends the park and sits beneath the Alder trees which border the canal. Moving towards the park the program places a Cafe and large Art Room so that they open into Kilbride Park. The planis derrived from an enfilade strategy
connecting all rooms on a single floor. This allows the project to enjoy flexibility without over prescribing circulation. The roof scape is dressed in reflective sheet aluminum. Arched roof forms are a free expression of the individual rooms, rising from the hidden plan within. The base plenum consists of a rhythm of composed, open glazed sections, colonnades and surfaces of polished white precast concrete.

The church was constructed in1878 and served unaltered until 1956 when a rising population required an extension that more than tripled its original size. This proposal looks at re-establishing the original church plan by moving the alter and creating a church in the round. The heart of the church is the crossing, the threshold, between these two phases of work.
Moving the altar to the crossing, the original location of the 1887 church, facilitates the tripartite division of the
existing body of the church; the upper church, the lower church and the crossing. At this junction we have proposed an altar-piece made from polished black terrazzo and a hanging tryptic. This forms a wall of light indicating the spatial separation between the upper and lower church. In addition new choir stalls installed at this crossing brings the voices of the parish closer to the music organ.

This House sits within a small farming community on the outskirts of Warsaw. The design developed from a neo classical plan which cuts a square into four sections. The program of the house sits within these quadrants, living room, kitchen, dining room and sauna make up the ground floor while the upper level consists of guest rooms, library and family quarters. This plan allows for each
room to enjoy selected views. The landscape surrounding the house consists of a European forest from which the materials will be sourced. The proposed timber structure will be made from a solid European Oak using a modern stave system. The timber will be sealed by utilising a traditional timber preservation technique found in Poland and Northern Europe.

The structural solution for the bridge came from existing bridge typologies in Dublin. After an initial investigation we determined that the structure would consist of a truss created from recycled steel sections. During the design process we were inspired by the wrought iron lattice bridges that form many of Dublins rail engineered infrastructures with examples such as the loopline Bridge
at Tara Street station. The nearest example of a wrought iron lattice bridge is at Lansdowne Road Station which is within walking distance from the site. The cladding is made from recycled copper and the cast concrete access ramps have been infused with copper shavings which will help the concrete mature in keeping with the copper lining of the bridge.

The proposal is to create a walled garden around the archeologically recorded layout of the Contrabands and Freedmen's Cemetery, Alexandria, Virginia. Above each grave we proposes the laying of a Portland stone piece marking the place of rest if each Freeman. The surrounding walls are made from red pigmented concrete.
The unique site section allowed us to strike a datum at the level of the memorial located at the centre of the park and connect a bridge which passes around the existing large elm tree on the site joining the North and South Walls. Here, beneath, the lower woodland blends into the cemetery allowing the public to enjoy an open park.

This project was commissioned by a private developer in collaboration with Iarnród Éireann and Dublin City Council. The proposal is to create a new street by constructing a tunnel over an existing rail track; a process which is common within European cities. The housing plan consists of twenty-one houses, five home based economic units and a community crèche. In keeping with the traditional terrace typologies of North Dublin the
street is made up of a large red brick terrace on the East side of the site and a series of individual large houses on the West. There are four house types all with private off-street parking. The project has a collective approach to energy requirements and water recycling strategies. The rear gardens will be stitched together allowing for local wildlife to run though thus enforcing its existing role as a green corridor connecting the North inner city suburbs to Phoenix Park.

The proposal is for an extension and refurbishment of an existing house close to Fairview Park Dublin. The site is uniquely placed at the end of a terrace with a small sliver of land between it and its neighboring developments.
The idea was to open the ground floor of the plan while maximizing the amount of light available from above. The result is two tall spaces, one holding a stairs the other a large vertical library and gallery.

Both projects received awards from The Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland.

He founded Ozmin Architecture in 2007 and has since developed a series of commissions ranging from private Houses to Public Buildings and Urban Propositions. He is actively engaged in Universities throughout Europe teaching Architecture in both degree and master programs. Regularly collaborating with other architects and designers he has been an invited exhibitor at the Royal Hibernian Academy and has work stored within the Irish Architectural Archives permanent collection.

In 2012 he moved to Sweden where he is currently working as a researcher and teacher at the School of Architecture in Umea.
