  7. 7.

  10. 10. STERLING HOUSE OF DAVISON ASSISTED LIVING DAVISON, MI FURNITURE LAYOUT When planning furniture in senior living communities, it is important to maintain a 36” clearance to meet ADA accessibility guidelines.

Dayroom Option #2 BREAKING UP CORRIDORS It is important to provide small seating niches in long corridors because as people age, they typically lose the ability to walk long distances without rest. FRONT OF THE HOUSE REMODEL The existing building received a full remodel along with the construction of the addition. The most notable improvement was the main living and activity spaces that received all new finishes and lighting. 8

BEFORE AND AFTER A rich wood grain vinyl floor, layers of lighting, architectural details, and new furniture, brings the new dining room to life, a drastic improvement from the existing dining room, pictured right. BORDERS WITH PURPOSE Flooring borders are utilized to further define the spaces, typically coordinating with the features of the ceiling. Here, borders help bring visual interest to the dining space, and carpet insets and borders mark the entrances to the dining room, serving as a wayfinding tool to residents as they walk down the corridors by providing a cue that they are approaching a hub of activity. 9
  12. 12. ENKE ARCHITECTS ARCHITECTURE FIRM MADISON, WI Flad Architects in Madison, WI assisted the 3rd year interior design students in a semester long commercial project. They served as our hypothetical client, relocating their office along with a renaming and rebranding of their company. • The third story of an actual office space in Madison, which was vacant but recently finished, was selected as our site for the client’s relocation. We were able to tour the space, take measurements, photos, and notes to use for design development. • Employees at Flad allowed us to interview them and take photos of their workspaces, in order to collect thorough programming information. Several months were spent solely on developing an extensive programming and schematic design report. BREAK ROOM ENTRANCE The extensive programming phase concluded three major goals for the build-out of their new office: • Providing a combination of work collaborative, social collaborative, and independent work spaces. • Maximizing natural daylight for employee’s well-being and productivity, as well as energy efficiency. • Establishing a new brand identity to reposition the company as a market leader in architecture and design. RECEPTION/ CONFERENCE ROOMS RCP Recessed ceilings, soffits, and light coves provide architectural interest. RECEPTION Initial view and first impression as guests step off the elevator, this space embodies the new brand of the company. Sleek, modern, punchy- Enke Architects are a leader in the industry, displaying their work on the gallery wall, along with a window view to their state-of-the-art seminar space and roof-top garden. BREAK ROOM/ CONFERENCE RCP Ceiling height gradually increases, with its highest ceiling height at the point. BREAK ROOM A triangular space with a curved water feature wall and two glazed curtain walls, employees can take a break from their busy work day to socialize, or enjoy the sun and third story view of the bustling streets below. WATER FEATURE Transparent glass with water running down each side allows sunlight to pass through, but provides partial privacy. 10
  13. 13. MAXIMIZING DAYLIGHT To maximize daylight throughout the third floor, all enclosed spaces such as private offices and conference rooms are clustered at the core of the building, leaving the expanse of windows around the perimeter open for employee workstations. PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT SOLID VS. VOID ADJACENCY CIRCULATION PUBLIC VS. PRIVATE PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT WORK VS. SOCIAL CORPORATE CULTURE & ADAPTABILITY The corporate culture of Enke Architecture is one of collaboration; therefore the design of their work place required a variety of independent and collaborative work spaces to maximize employee productivity. The ability to adapt the spaces to changes in the company over time, such as schuffling teams for a new project, was essential . 11
  14. 14. ICONIC BAR & GRILL HOTEL LOBBY, BAR, & RESTAURANT MADISON, WI Inn at the Park- Best Western Hotel in downtown Madison, WI assisted the 4th year interior design students in a semester long hospitality project. They served as our hypothetical client, however the owner was actually interested in remodeling the hotel lobby, bar, and restaurant spaces in the near future. Therefore as a class, we were able to provide over 30 distinct design concepts to help her start shaping her vision. • The outdated hotel restaurant had a prime location on the capital square, but struggled to compete with the surrounding night life geared towards young professionals. The hotel owner requested a full rebranding of the hotel, driven by an initial remodeling project of the hotel lobby and its bar and restaurant. Major goals of the remodel project included: • Establishing a new brand identity to compete with the surrounding night life on the capital square, through the development of a strong design concept that would carry through from front door to back, down to the smallest details. • To create a complete and original design concept that would provide guests with an unforgetable sensory experience. Besides the interior design, the concept development included the planning all sensory stimuli of sight, sound, touch, taste, and scent. THE HOTEL RECEPTION AMERICAN POP ART The concept for ICONIC was derived from the American Pop Arts movement of the 1960s and the cultural ideologies it represented. Art from this period was used as inspiration throughout and in some spaces, such as the reception desk and bar area, a direct reference to specific pieces. ‘SUNRISE -ROY LICHTENSTEIN ‘DROWNING GIRL’ -ROY LICHTENSTEIN THE BAR With a service window to the outdoor patio.

Inspiration Image: Mister Important Design, Vanity Night Club- Las Vegas ACOUSTICS The heavy drapery on the walls and ceiling provide acoustic control to prevent the loud music from spilling to adjacent, quieter spaces such as the Lounge. 13
