  3. 3. AAA Express, CaliforniaAAA Express is a new concept in Insurance and Travel sales,locating small branches within Supermarkets. AAA developed abrand concept to locate small express branches offering insurance,travel and DMV services within Lucky Supermarkets in the greaterSan Francisco Bay Area. Looking to expand their market to ayounger customer, I was charged with creating an exciting, modernspace utilizing conventional materials. Focusing on color, shape andtexture I invoked the feeling of movement and energy. The sense ofmovement was enhanced by the use of active media in the form ofelectronic displays, as well as the use of bold graphic statementsusing applied vinyl graphics that can be easily changed to reflectchanging services.

  22. 22. AAA Northern California, Nevada and UtahDesigning for their conventional branches, to be located as store-fronts in regional malls and urban shopping zones, I utilized a conceptthat organizes the branch so that customers pass through a platformarea of insurance and travel sales leading to the customer servicecounter. The use of different materials, color, varied ceiling heights andsoffits helped define the zones within the branch.

  37. 37. Clorox Consumer Learning Center, PleasantonThe Clorox Technical Center consists of nine buildings serving theresearch and development of Clorox’s products.Clorox conducts their own market research through focus groupsand consumer testing. This new 17,000 sf facility consolidates thesefunctions in a state of the art facility. The consumer testing areas weredesigned to emulate different residential kitchen and bathroomenvironments as well as provide sensory booths for the testing of foodproducts and fragrance. In addition the focus room, observed througha one way mirror from the adjacent viewing room equipped with audiovisual equipment, allows Clorox to conduct focus groups in the samefacility. Clorox also required the ability to prepare the food productsand products for fragrance testing on site, thus the provision of “lab”spaces for these functions. Office space for the staff was also provided.
