Project Process

30 Mar

The deadline is coming up so soon!!

The past week has consisted of very little sleep and many hours with Revit. In fact, my eye sight has been blurry the past few days because of deliriousness and staring at my computer screen for hours and hours on end!  I have accomplished some renderings for my final project, what you see below is the Retail area that will sell yoga accessories and skin care products, the Juice Bar that sells healthy smoothies and other yummy drinks, and the treatment room, which I love the look of because it is very simple and clean!

I still have to do the finishing touches of photoshop on the images which will add more to the image.  For example, the back wall of the juice bar will have modular art tile, it will add texture and will be visually stimulating, I hope anyways! ha!

I still have more spaces to render and tons of other things to do to complete this project!

I feel guilty for sleeping.

Hope you enjoy my renderings so far! More to come soon!

If you have any suggestions please let me know!! Thanks

Circulation

26 Feb

Circulation is important to any space to allow the users to move around with ease.  I always design with good circulation in mind as I pretend to walk through the space.  The way that I have visioned circulation in the medical and wellness spa, other than in the floor plans, is by adding a design element through different points down the hallway to move the user through the space.

I chose to show circulation on the 4th floor which is full of yoga studios, the juice bar, and the retail area.

Relating back to my concept, the “3 states of water” I chose to relate the concept to my floor plan by each floor representing a “state” of water, gas, liquid, and a solid.  So in this case, the solid represents the 4th floor which I have shown here.

These are the chairs I will use for the sitting area in the hallway, right now I’m thinking a blue fabric or a striped blue, green, and white fabric.

To expand on this idea I am thinking of a flooring pattern or keeping the geometric element moving up onto the ceiling to keep the flow of the space going.

Armstrong BioBased Tile “Striations” – ‘Java’ will be used for the flooring and different tones of greens and blues will be used for the wall colors.  Vibrant, but still a relaxing feel.

Moving along…

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!
