01 SOCKWELL OFFICE HEADQUARTERS LOCATION: CHATTANOOGA, TN SIZE: 12,000 SF DURATION: 10 WEEKS STUDIO III WORKPLACE
Sockwell, is a unique company with the drive to help people â€œfeel better in styleâ€? through designing sustainable performance accessories that are made in the USA. The importance of innovation and flexibility were at the forefront of the design of their new headquarters. Creating a workplace environment that focused on wellness and performance created opportunities for dynamic programming. The local culture of Chattanooga cultivates an active and progressive community. Creating a space to support the active needs of employees and clients was an overarching goal. Design features include various touchdown spaces to encourage movement as well as allowing views to the outdoors to be maximized for all users.
Driving the design, the concept of being interwoven was integrated throughout. As seen in the reception perspective to the right, the two story space is woven together through custom millwork. Other features that were driven by the concept include the functionality of all spaces while maintaining a fresh and modern aesthetic. The spaces maintain structure while also remaining flexible and adaptable. This allows users to have control and feel a sense of belonging. As the first fully digitally rendered project, the learning curve during this project challenged my growth, and prepared me for future computer drafting and rendering.
TO BE IN TER WOVEN
between performance and aesthic pleasures in design.
Using the visual and structural qualities of textiles inspired by the company, Sockwell, the design of the space will be unified and dynamic. The interwoven qualities of textiles create a cohesive form while working independently to hold the structure together. This will drive the use of linear and angled walls and forms to separate spaces while keeping the office culture interwoven through consistency of materials, lighting and clear sightlines. The organic nature of threads will be abstracted using linear forms that interconnect physically and visually. The concept of being interwoven will also promote the design of the office to promote the communal and active office culture. Connecting with remote employees through providing workspaces within the office as well as integrating technology for small meetings will cultivate a close knit company culture.

By utilizing angled floor plans, the office space promotes circulation towards the outdoor views on the south facade. The angle also guides users around the internal stair case creating a space that flows throughout. The environment encourages movement by breaking up large open office desking systems with touchdown spaces and phone rooms. Small meeting rooms are spread throughout for accessibility.
Executive offices are welcoming, and workstations along the corner facade allows for greater employee satisfaction as a result of maximizing views and communication.
The Junction provides workstations for remote employees to have a sense of belonging when in the office as well as touchdown spaces to encourage movement and collaboration.
WORK CAFE At the top of the monumental stairs, you enter the Work Cafe. This is a space for rejuvenation and social interaction. Various seating options allow for users to control their privacy and comfort. Acoustic ceiling baffles are a key design feature to mitigate sound in the large open space. Views to the exterior landscape, connect the company with their community as well as support employeeâ€™s wellness in connecting with nature.

Enclaves and demountable wall systems, give employees places for respite and small meetings within the open office layout. Utilizing materials such as 3form panels, allows for natural light to enter the space, while providing privacy.
RECREATION AND ENRICHMENT CENTER LOCATION: TALLAHASSEE, FL SIZE: 49,000 SF DURATION: 4 WEEKS STUDIO IV BEYOND THE BOX CHALLENGE CO-DESIGNER: HAYLEIGH ENGLEHARDT As large box stores such as Toys R Us close, the existing spaces are left vacant. This â€œBig Box Blightâ€? created the opportunity to address a local issue in the Tallahassee community. With a teammate, research was first conducted to identify an aspect of the community that is lacking. Seeing that Florida is ranked fourth highest for childhood obesity rates, the community is in need of a recreation facility that will encourage healthier habits in both youth and their caregivers. Additionally, 44% of Tallahassee residents are families with children under the age of 18. With such a large family demographic, a community center is needed to provide a space for social and educational enrichment.
A unique piece of this project was having the opportunity to create the program requirements. After researching the problem, the program aimed to create the solution. The solution is providing a space for all ages to come together and promote health and wellness. To best support this growth, all ages are encouraged to coexist within the space through incorporation of community enrichment areas such as a teaching kitchen and health food cafe, as well as fitness spaces. All ethnicities, ages, and personalities are invited to elevate their health and wellness in the new Tallahassee recreation and enrichment center.
Inspired by Abstract Regionalism, the design will both integrate and celebrate the local Tallahassee community while introducing modern and minimalist design to inspire wellness in a new way. Providing a solution to the lack of modern recreational and educational wellness facilities in Tallahassee, Abstract Regionalism addresses the needs of the local community while abstracting traditional architectural design, to create a space that welcomes youth and their caregivers to grow, move and be inspired to better their personal and community health. Abstracting traditional linear design into curved and playful forms, provokes imagination and creativity in youth while giving the community a refreshing and modern design to spark change. Interior spaces such as a central community room and teaching kitchen will bring generations together to learn healthy habits, while open gym and play spaces will accommodate both youth and caregivers to socially interact and cultivate an active community. Educational spaces will supplement traditional classroom learning while abstracting formal modes of work to support intellectual growth. Tallahassee is a historic city with a need for a fresh space to connect the community and promote modern health and wellness.

Caregivers are ensured of their childâ€™s safety through maintaining supervision, while allowing kids to creatively play. The minimal design of the play structure encourages imaginative play, and socialization between youth. The climbing wall adds excitement to the space as well as an alternative activity for older children. With access to the track and gym above, caregivers have the opportunity to better their personal health while also remaining in touch with their child. Following the concept of abstract regionalism, forms are minimal and modern, while providing the Tallahassee community a place for engagement, that currently is not available to the local community.

FSU PRIMARY HEALTH CLINIC LOCATION: TALLAHASSEE, FL SIZE: 20,928 SF DURATION: 8 WEEKS STUDIO IV HEALTHCARE STUDIO
In May of 2019, Florida State University College of Medicine opened FSU Primary Health in Tallahassee FL. The College of Medicine’s mission is to be responsive to community needs, especially though service to elder, rural, minority and underserved populations. Located in an underserved population, the influx of patients is rapidly increasing as more people become aware of the reputable staff working here. Dr. Van Durme is a nationally known teacher and leader in family medicine as a highly rated teacher for continuing medical education programs for practicing physicians. As Dr, Van Durme continues to build the medical program, he has ambitions of expanding this clinic to build a larger facility to accomodate more patients and staff along with students.
The new building is proposed as a three story structure, with clinical services located on the first floor. The scope of this project includes only the first floor. Dr. Van Durme’s largest concerns included patient and staff privacy, efficient travel paths for both physicians and patients and creating an atmosphere that felt “less sterile” and intimidating to patients. The goal became to create a welcoming and healing environment through the integration of natural forms and curved walls that enhance sight lines, as well as a natural and contrasting palette inspired by a canyon. Patient and staff areas are separated to enhance privacy as well as efficiency in circulation. Medical Staff “Islands” are central to exam rooms, promoting staff communication as well as respite (shown to the right).
Like healthcare, a canyon is vast with multitudes of side channels with a central force moving forward. The constant movement and change is harnessed in the adapting yet strong geology of the canyon walls. It has withstood lifetimes of change and continues to support the ecosystems surorunding it regardless of the rapid pressures placed by humankind. Healthcare is currently facing rapid changes, and designing a clinic that will support the community through modifyability while maintaining composure will support the change. The power behind wind and water bursting through a canyon is unharnessed, while the overall composure of the land remains grandure and calm. This contrast inspires the design of the clinic to be promote healing and wellness through providing a structured space for effective and efficient care in an environment that is constantly moving and changing.

04 GROCERS INC. PURE BEAUTY
LOCATION: GROCERS INC. LOCATIONS SIZE: 1,200 SF (BEAUTY AISLE) DURATION: 3 WEEKS STUDIO III RETAIL COMPETITION As the beauty industry is growing beyond department stores and typical drug stores, many beauty companies are incorporating their sales into grocery stores. This creates a design challenge for grocery stores to accommodate the growth of beauty products on store shelves. Consumers expect the shopping experience, and beauty products should not suffer from losing the experience of department store kiosks. In response to this, the design of Pure Beauty aims to cultivate the retail experience within a typical grocery store setting. As research is released about the harmful ingredients in many products, the concept of clean beauty is gaining popularity
Using the clean beauty movement as inspiration, the concept of a greenhouse drives the design. The design aims to create a refreshing experience that utilizes technology to personalize users experiences. As a greenhouse provides a space for growth, Pure Beauty will allow for consumers to be refreshed and experience an innovative and rejuvenating environment within the chaos of the grocery store. Video technology is integrated to provide for user control and to better sell the products.
Using the concept of a greenhouse, the Pure Beauty aisle creates a customer experience within the chaos of the grocery store. Lighting design integrated into the planter boxes on the tops of the shelving, produces natural shadows on the hung ceiling features. Screens and technology are also integrated to create a personalized shopping experience. With ample shelving space, products can be displayed in an organized and visually pleasing way, resulting in a more high end retail aesthetic.

05 KEURIG DR PEPPER HEADQUARTERS LOCATION: FRISCO, TX SIZE: 320,000 SF SUMMER INTERNSHIP: CORGAN, INC DALLAS, TX During Summer 2019, I had the opportunity to engage in an internship in Dallas, Texas for Corgan. I worked on the Corporate Interiors Team, specifically assigned to work on the Keurig Dr Pepper Project. Now one company, Keurig Dr Pepper is hoping to create a unified company culture in a new office space in Frisco, Texas. At the start of my internship, I was brought onto the team during schematic design. This allowed me to showcase my creativity through collaboration and ideation. As we moved into design development, I was given the freedom to design spaces such as the “mini beverage bars” which included custom stair design, as well as millwork and furniture layouts. Built in booth seating as well as bench seating surrounding the stair and the stair nook, were all design features that I designed and modeled in Revit.
As the project progressed, I gained deeper understanding of Revit documentation for sheet sets, as well as working to accurately model features for construction documentation. For the final renderings, I took the leadership in guiding coworkers through using Lumion, while also learning other programs such as Enscape to streamline work flow. Overall, having the opportunity to work for such a large company in a fast paced city gave me opportunities to showcase my ability to work with a team, and contribute to the project’s success. The growth I saw by the end of the summer in my efficiency in Revit and Lumion, as well as understanding of business practices in a commercial setting, has given me a strong foundation moving forward in design and my career.
MINI BEVERAGE BARS Pieces of the design that I specifically developed included, the Mini Beverage Bars, which will serve as a break areas located at the connecting staircase on all 5 floors of the office. In the beverage bars, I designed the connecting staircase that would be integrated on all 5 floors. Design features included the built in niche to maximize usage of under-stair space, as well as built in seating around the perimeter of stair base to further encourage employee interaction and informal work space. The beverage bar piece, was custom modeled to include K-cup storage as well as a corrugated metal ceiling feature that was driven by the concept of the materiality of production for Keurig Dr Pepper. I was given the freedom to design and model this space, which was accepted by the team and implemented in the final design moving into construction documentation.
INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE WHAT I DID Within the first week, I was able to collaborative with the team to develop the concept, and work on creating mood and inspiration boards that would drive the design. Using quick-sketching, I was able to communicate my ideas, increasing my involvement with the project. Moving into Design Development, I worked in Revit developing furniture, finish and ceiling plans, along with preliminary renderings to present to the client. I was able to utilize my skills in Revit to assist with all the Revit work, as well as contribute to the efforts on Lumion renderings. Assisting with the selection of sustainable, durable and affordable finishes allowed for me to develop deeper knowledge of products and manufacturers. I also gained knowledge of work sharing in Revit while working on a five person team developing plans and renderings. Communication was key, and always justifying design ideas with conceptual application provided the momentum to complete Design Development within the time frame defined by the client.
All the renderings shown here showcase my work in Lumion and Adobe Photoshop as well as Revit. Also showcased is my ability to work on a collaborative team, and utilize a concept and a clientâ€™s values to drive the design. All aspects of the design are catered to support the needs of employees, and maintain Kuerig Dr Peppers values while cultivating a space for employees to grow connections and promote efficiency in work.

ATOMIC LIGHT FIXTURE CLIENT: GOLDEN LIGHTING DURATION: 3 WEEKS
Golden Lighting, a national lighting fixture design company, with their headquarters in Tallahassee, Florida partnered with students at Florida State University for a design competition. As a part of the Lighting Fundamentals class, all students were tasked with designing a fixture that would house a single LED strip. Using an atomic mass as the concept, I designed the light fixture to be multi-dimensional and fluid. From every angle, the fixture appears different, creating a focal points from around the space. Like an atomic mass, the fixture radiates energy in all directions, allowing for an even distribution of light that fills the room. Using Revit modeling, I was able to bring my vision for the complex yet sleek fixture to life. Utilizing Photoshop, I showcased my fixture in a space, just as Golden Lighting does in their catalogs. Overall, I gained skills in lighting design such as understanding lumens and CRI, as well as the electrical complexities that lighting designers face. My design was showcased in the Golden Lighting showroom in the Dallas Trade Mart summer of 2019.

HAND RENDERING TECHNIQUES Through the Graphics I and II classes, I gained hand rendering skills as well as quick sketching confidence. Working with marker techniques, and understanding shade and shadow in drawing, I am capable of hand rendering both details and full space renderings. Shown to the right are material simulations that are fully completed using markers, and colored pencil. Focusing on the materiality of objects, allows for a wide range of materials within a perspective to be realistically rendered.
ABOVE The triptych above shows the progression from a sketch layer, to a shade and shadow layer, to the final fully marker rendered image. As a photo replication, the original image was broken down to best study each step of hand rendering, resulting in a final drawing that closely replicates the original image. TO THE LEFT As the final project of Graphics II, we were tasked with the design of a work/live penthouse in Tallahassee, Florida. The client requested a space that would accommodate hosting guests for work parties, as well as a refreshing and modern space to personally enjoy. The space plan is open with viewpoints between the dining and living to best accommodate social events. An open kitchen and center island allows for both comfort in the kitchen, as well as a space to layout appetizers for an event. The bedroom is located in the left wing of the penthouse for privacy, and includes a private balcony. The floor plan was hand rendered on top of a CAD floor plan. The perspectives were fully rendered by hand, using a hand drawn grid and sketching skills.

Studio II gave me the opportunity to apply my hand rendering skills to illustrate my design for client, Bob and Karen Zielowski both in their mid 60â€™s who are looking for an aging in place solution. This solution needed to apply to both summer and winter destinations. Utilizing the same 1,500 square foot floor plan, the design is adapted to fit the local vernaculars of Breckenridge, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico. With ADA considerations at the forefront of the design, both spaces will allow for the clients to gracefully age in place.

While remaining ADA accessible, the space features a custom adobe fireplace, and flat native wood beams. Local art is integrated to capture the historic and cultural spirit of Santa Fe. Materials are durable, and create an earthy yet modern aesthetic.
TECHNICAL DETAILING + CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION Skills in detailed drawings and construction documentation came from both coursework in “Construction Systems” and “Construction Documents” as well as during my internship with Corgan. In Construction Systems, we were tasked with completing detailed drawings by hand. I also learned the basics of how systems within a building work. From the framing and structure of the building through plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems. Construction Documents then gave me the opportunity to apply my knowledge through completing a sheet set for the construction documentation of a new build, “Argonaut” office in Tallahassee, Florida. This included finish plans, reflected ceiling plans, power and data plans, sections and elevation and detailed ADA restroom design. This also enhanced my competency in Revit as well as understanding of how things are made and how to draw the details for various systems, millwork details and wall types.
