Defining Public Space

12 Mar

The week we were to define the public space in our project, I chose to define the Juice Bar area.  The pictures below describe the ideation process I went through.

The floor plan for the 3rd sketch.

The floor plan for the sketch above.

After my desk crit, I was told I need to develop the area more and I took it into consideration to redo that side of the building on the 4th floor. Here is my new idea which Im starting to like a lot better!

Here are some rough drafts of what the space will look like, this is the retail area that leads into the juice bar.

Here is a rough image of the new juice bar area.

Some materials that will be used:

  • Corian Mint Ice or Lime Ice…still deciding
  • Knoll Space CHIP Chair
  • Knoll Studio Arena Cafe Tables
  • Back-Painted Glass for ceiling element and backdrop for retail cash wrap
  • Cube Pendants by Tech Lighting
  • 3D Wall Decor behind the juice bar
  • Sherwin Williams Paint Colors
