Moving along…

18 Feb

This past week was a busy one, but I’m sure I can say that about all of the weeks ahead of me. Not only with it being a busy week, it snowed on monday and we did NOT get out of class! This pushed my progress, motivation, etc. a step backward, or maybe 2 to 3 steps backward.  I was banking on a snow day, I mean who doesn’t love snow days?? and since I did not get ANY last year (because I was on the other side of the world, I can’t complain) when the rest of my classmates missed like 2 weeks of school or something crazy like that.  Anyways, my point is that I’d like to have at least one snow day before I graduate. :) Catch my drift?

So with this said, I was struggling and feeling behind.  We had an “Arrival Charette” on monday to develop the arrival space of our design.  We had about 45 minutes for each arrival space design.  This is not enough time for me, especially when there is snow on the ground and I’m locked in class.  Here are sketches of what I came up with. (These are views of coming off of the elevator on the second floor).

My first sketch with some ideas.  Having trouble with the reception desk -design and location because of traffic in all areas of the space.

I have trouble drawing to scale in perspectives so if you can just picture the furniture a little bigger… ha!

[The captions on the side of the pic from top to bottom say..dropped ceiling, frosted glass, arrival from stairs]

Here is a final idea with some color.  I want to create a very modern high-end luxury feel but still comfortable.

Practicing in Revit with the look Im trying to achieve.  The furniture is a place holder not the furniture I want in the space. It is sort of the shape I want to use though!

Another.  Added glass bead curtains and a fireplace in the middle until I can figure out how to put a fireplace in the wall! Again the furniture is a place holder for scale, not the furniture I want to use.

Here are some furniture pieces I would like to use in this space.

On Wednesday, we had a “Circulation Charette.”  I am still working on perfecting it so be on the look out for upcoming posts on the circulation charette, final plans, plus more exciting inspiring images!
