  15. 15. Scale=NTS First Floor Plan Scale=NTS Ground Floor Plan Design Concept For 215 – 217 East 8th Avenue in Homestead, I wanted to create a design that would represent both the past and future of Homestead. This is why I have created two very different spaces. The first floor is a diner that resembles a diner car of the 1950’s. This was achieved by using period furniture and lighting. The ceiling is a recycled tin that brings in the feel of a metal diner car, and the mirrors placed behind the row of booths create the feel of diner car Nicole Ruber windows while making the narrow space feel more spacious. Advanced Commercial The ground level has a completely different feel. It is a contemporary karaoke bar with a motif that represents Pittsburgh’s three rivers. The rivers are represented by wavy textured walls, a water feature, and the many shades ID450 of blue used throughout. Many renewable materials were used in both the first floor and second floor, because this Fall 2009 project truly represents the renewal of Homestead to the thriving multicultural town it once was.
