  1. 1. Chelsea Schwindt Design Portfolio
  2. 2. There is always a new design problem waiting for a fresh new outlook or solution. It’s always exciting to use my creativity and produce something different.

The goal was to create a spacious environment that is open and easy to use. The circulation allows her to have ease of movement. Using clean lines as a repetitive element gives fluidity throughout the space. This provides Edita with a sophisticated Mid-Century Modern suite that is functional and comfortable for her needs and is aesthetically pleasing.

  23. 23. Concept Statement Radiance was a concept derived from the sun, and its curvilinear form and flowing rays. The merchandise sold in the kiosk was what started the inspiration. Sunglasses and hats are merchandise intended for use under sunny conditions. So therefore the main form of the kiosk is that of a sculptural sun with rays floating away from it.
  24. 24. The main form of the building is a globe from which all curvilinear aspects of the interior were constructed. The exterior shell is covered with copper sheeting; creating a very reflective and aesthetically pleasing piece of art. The reflective surface will definitely grab attention in its surrounding of an airport. The Interior is finished with a fresh yellow paint that contrasts nicely with white high gloss cabinetry and desk. Radiance is an energetic place for you to stop by; on the way to or from a sunny vacation and find yourself a new sun hat or sunglasses to enjoy.

  27. 27. Concept Statement: Color Spectrum is derived from the rainbow and it’s multiples of colors. Color Spectrum is a retail spaced intended to bring a burst of color into your everyday life. The products sold in the store are very versatile, and intended for use in interior and exterior applications. Each product comes in a wide variety of colors and graphic prints that can provide you with the perfect accent piece or pop of color you need in your home. The neutral backdrop provides the perfect subtle space that focuses on the brightly colored products. Color Spectrum consists mainly of white finishes, and a textural wall panels to add interest. A dark brown floor was incorporated to ground the space and break up all the white finishes. All products arranged in a rainbow sequence that fades throughout the room. This creates a composition of the color spectrum across the entire space.
