COLLECTION OF CREATIVE WORK

COLETTE CARTY


I am passionate about all things relating to Interior Design and Architecture. This portfolio is a vehicle to chronicle this passion. At this time I am dedicated to applying my enthusiasm for design and specialized capabilities to fulfilling my professional ambitions. As a graduate from California State University Sacramento, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interior Design/Interior Architecture, I am currently seeking an opportunity to work in the world of design. I enjoy all aspects of Interior Design and Architecture and applying my individual style and creative sense of planning to all assigned tasks.

Colette Carty

I am determined to create functional spaces with effortless flow that incorporate luxury, finely crafted detail and a contemporary vision of timeless interiors. Interiors not only dynamic and current but constructed for ease of use. It is with great admiration for design that I hope to continue to achieve innovative design solutions with a positive attitude and progressive outlook on design.

FATS ASIA BISTRO The successes of Fats Asia Bistro in Roseville and Folsom, California, influenced the Fat’s family business to venture to the beautiful islands of Hawaii to open another restaurant. The finished design solution for the new restaurant integrates the striking tropical environment of Wailea, Maui and the contemporary European bistro aesthetic of the current Fats Bistros. Drawing inspiration from the new restaurants location, an innovative designed concept of fire and water was achieved. The element of fire can be seen through the light fixture selections and modern fire pits, providing an intimate atmosphere throughout the restaurant. The element of water is achieved through water features behind the indoor bar and outdoor patio bar, a reflecting pool, glass top surfaces, curved casework, and furnishings. Soft shades of teal and coral were incorporated into the restaurants overall color palette to compliment the fire and water concept. Providing accessibility and an effortless traffic flow throughout the restaurant was an essential element in the space plan of the design. Bestowing comfortable seating and sleek furnishings in the design solution allowed the overall aesthetic of the restaurant to appear inviting and relaxing. By fusing these elements into the design, the eastern influences of Asian design and the tropical influences inspired by Wailea, Maui, are joined in harmony with one another; resulting in a dining atmosphere and experience that is sophisticated and luxurious. The interior bar and dining perspective to the right reveals the finished design solution. Upon entering, customers are greeted with the dramatic floor to ceiling indoor bar and waterfall. Customers have the option of dining beside the intimate reflecting pool, the intrepid fireplaces, or comfortable booth seating. Several lighting selections create drama in the space, such as suspended Roost Glass pendants (designed to resemble floating candlesticks), custom bamboo inspired lights (which elongate the double height space), and illuminated bar shelves (portraying bottles as artwork).

ADAPTIVE REUSE: THE ABLE CONTAINER In response to natural disasters, the intent of this collaborative design was to provide the victims of catastrophes, living in Port Antonio, Jamaica, with a mass produced home that would provide everything a community of sixteen would need for daily life. Our design incorporated interior architectural solutions used for a temporary emergency, disaster relief shelter, which utilized re-purposed Intermodal Transit Containers (ISO Containers). We call this temporary shelter the ‘Able Container’. The Able Container brings together technology, smart design, and principles of environmentally aware living while providing a rapidly deployable solution to the immediate needs of people in the aftermath of a natural disaster or crisis. The ABLE container is: SustainABLE-promoting a sustainable lifestyle that functions in harmony with the natural environment around it and draws energy from the sun and rain. ReusABLE-Recycles its waste into usable nutrients and is a modular container that can be packed up and moved to the next disaster site. AdaptABLE-Form and Function helps maximize the living space and takes into account the culture and community of Port Antonio Jamaica.

And DurABLE-Weather resistant, emergency ready, insulated, and energy efficient-off the grid container shelter. The exterior of the Able Container is versatile yet uniform. Energy and water solar panels, along with green grids, adorn the roof of every container in different configurations; providing storable energy and a low internal thermal mass. Impact resistant PVC windows and doors provide hurricane protection while a moveable trellis system attached by cable suspensions, closes on top of the ISO container during severe weather conditions. The shell of the ISO container remains exposed while the corrugated sides are shielded with Trex plastic sheeting, designed to resemble wood paneling for a more aesthetically pleasing exterior. The ISO itself remains underneath the paneling for its inherent weather proofing qualities. The rendering to the right depicts the exterior of Jamaican culture.

AVENUE 74 PUBLIC RELATIONS, INC. As the leader in lifestyle public relations, Avenue 74 PR Inc, specializes in developing publicity campaigns for beauty, fashion, home furnishing, and health conscious clients. They utilize a fusion of public relations, viral marketing, cross promotions, private events, product placement, and web site publicity to do so. Avenue 74 PR publicizes the labels of several emerging fashion/beauty brands, as well as established fashion designers. The management of Avenue 74 and its team of Brand Advocates have connections with consumer and trade market editors at top magazines, blogging communities and web sites worldwide. After much success, Avenue 74 decided to renovate. Providing a comfortable and elegant atmosphere which stands apart from competing PR firms was a main priority in the design. Due to the prestigious and highly successful clients Avenue 74 works with, the finished design needed to be functional, practical, and above all unique. The newly renovated firm, residing in downtown Los Angeles, California, achieved that by combining fanciful and natural elements in harmony by integrating modern selections with natural wood applications. A lobby, conference room, library, and two small meeting rooms were the extent of the renovation. The render to the right offers a dramatic welcome to Avenue 74 PR Inc. as it combines whimsical elements with luxurious comforts, offering a restful place to sit, relax, and wait to speak with a Brand Advocate. Bold textures as well as pops brass finishes and chartreuse against warm grey walls, are all reflected through a brass octagonal mirror to entice the occupier to pause and reflect for a moment. Grey walls allow the suspended brass fixture to stand out and allocated a larger range of color choices that are unforeseen and out of the ordinary. In addition, the combination of wood panels and wood beam ceiling play off the more modern brass surfaces and create an unexpected collaboration between the opposing materials.

WELLS FARGO GOLD RIVER REGIONAL BANK Wells Fargo Bank provides their customers with a range of services including; banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance. Wells Fargo decided to open a new Gold River location that required interior design assistance. Once completed, all tenant spaces meet applicable building and fire codes as well as all ADA requirements. There are four Centers within the bank which include: The Banking Center and Retirement Investment Group on level one and the Gold River Regional Bank Administrative Offices and Wells Fargo Call Center on level two. The contemporary facilities of the new building complex and the well recognized branding of Wells Fargo were prominent factors in the selection of all furnishing, material, and color choices. Seating, tables and credenzas were provided solely by Steelcase. The new Wells Fargo Gold River Regional Bank is located in Sacramento, CA, and has views overlooking the American River and Nimbus Dam. The goal for this project was to communicate, through design and research, space efficiency, program adherence, and security without sacrificing the customer’s experience or the Wells Fargo image. The existing building shell inspired the design concept of steps/stacking, achieved through strategic space planning. The interior Lobby perspective to the right conveys the finished design solution. An open and inviting entrance was achieved through clear circulation, a peaceful lounge area, and visible Wells Fargo representatives and signage. Elegant espresso wood finishes and honeycomb onyx bring sophistication to the banking center while the suspended Armstrong acoustical ceiling panels absorb excess noise within the space.

BANNON CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL The primary function of Bannon Creek Elementary school is to provide students with a space that ignites their imagination and fosters an enduring love of learning. The site and the user’s educational needs have inspired the concept, ‘Education Through Design’. Bannon Creek Elementary uses the newly renovated school as a teaching tool where education is not only within the classroom but also fully integrated into the building and the surrounding environment. The design solution provides students areas to explore as a group as well as a whole, emphasizing that knowledge holds no bounds. With the use of sustainable design and innovative environmental approaches, the school minimizes its ecological footprint while becoming energy efficient. Placards with information regarding energy efficiencies such as automatic light fixtures are used in dual purpose to teach children about saving energy while maintaining fiscal stability. This concept encourages a learning environment where education is a new adventure that is engaging and fun. The design concept, ‘Education Through Design’, has directly inspired the schools theme: Plant Earth. Each of the building levels informs students about the Earth. The first level is dedicated to Land and Sea, which is represented through materials as well as informational placards regarding flora and fauna. The second level is dedicated to the sky, which represented through fixtures, finishes, and informational placards regarding cloud formations and weather. A central organization emphasizes the core of each level where low walls open up to the corridors to visually maximize the space and increase natural day lighting. The design concept, ‘Education Through Design’, provides educators areas to teach lessons beyond the classroom and students the opportunity to discover the surrounding environment within their own school. The structure is designed to stimulate questions, discover answers, provoke curiosity, motivate problem solving, and facilitate learning. Seamless transitions from the exterior and interior provide a fluidity between the transitions of spaces; unifying the school, community and nature. In addtition, creating opportuinites to integrate the existing building with its adjacent local flora and fauna, through its layout, arrangement, and educational program was paramount in the design. Expanding the classroom spectrum in combination with project based learning and environmental awareness will result in expert learners who continue learning for a lifetime.

TORY BURCH BOUTIQUE Tory Burch is an American fashion designer who offers attainable, elegant women’s clothing, shoes, and handbags. The interior of her stores embrace vibrant colors and resemble residential interiors to evoke a relaxed experience for the customer. All of Tory Burch’s stores share the same philosophy, however, each is unique and site specific. Therefore, the design solution was inspired by postmodernism as a direct response to the aesthetic of its location. A monumental entrance is achieved through grand arches, adorned with Daltile from the Maracas series and Slim Lite Panels from the Classic Collection. The use of Daltile is a prominent feature in the display windows, helping to evoke curiosity to the store as the customer examines the intricate tile pattern on the back wall. The use of orange, gold, and silver from several unique Daltile product lines, creates interest and drama for a retail store that embraces whimsy. The interior creates the warmth of a residential home while predominantly using the hard surfaces of tile. Grand arches are repeated through the space and act as room dividers while showcasing Daltile’s City Lights Collection on the back wall of each closet. Finally, the feature wall, located behind the point of sales counter, displays another Daltile patterned wall which, like the display windows on the exterior, creates visual interest for customers. Through the use of Daltile products, Tory Burch’s retail store achieves a vibrant and unique interpretation of postmodernism and creates an experience unlike any other for their customers. The interior render perspective to the right conveys the finished design solution. There is a lot going on within the space, but the use of matching pairs of sofas, benches, chandeliers, and tables makes the room balanced and symmetrical. White sofas, mirrors, brass-and-glass tables and purple and orange accents abound. Simple Parsons Tables and X-benches give the interior sophistication. The clean lines of furniture are the perfect pairing for dramatic color and pattern of the rugs and fabric.

The point of sales counter is representational of Tory Burch’s image. It was designed to resemble a bedroom dresser to reiterate the character of a residential interior. Although the boutique is chic and modern, postmodernism can be seen with the repetition of arches. These grand arches are adorned with Burch’s emblem and serve as space dividers. Moreover, the orange draperies divide the public space from dressing rooms, manager’s office, restroom, and storage.

THE SENATOR HOTEL The Senator Hotel (1924–1979) was a nine-story, 400-room Italian Renaissance-style hotel in Sacramento, California located at 12th and L streets across from the California State Capitol building that served as a nexus of California political and social activity for more than 50 years. Currently, the Senator Hotel building serves as commercial office space and is divided into two main reinforced-concrete masses, each nine stories in height and connected by a lobby building. The occupying tenants have decided to contract design assistance to update their main lobby in hopes of renting out the space for large events. Seamlessly combining the original historical design with a modern flare was the design goal for the Interiors team. Working alongside the Interiors Principal and a senior designer, our team created several luxurious options. Two traditional red and gold options were presented and a third color scheme featuring the color blue was the most modern variation. Custom carpet designs, furniture and fabric selections were all carefully chosen to reflect the historical essence of the Senator Hotel. The interior render perspective to the right presents the Senator Hotel with a bold and modern blue color palette. As visitors make their way through the space, they are surrounded by a repetition of soft blue arches and columns with espresso wood veneer reaching the second level. The original skylight is adorned with three gold Sputnik Chandeliers to create the presence of luxury from its highest point. Moreover, gold accents are applied throughout the space in harmony with the existing gold and blue tile flooring. An overlay carpet with custom pattern stretches the length of the lobby and is centrally located, depicting its hierarchy within the open space. Two seating arrangements, in various hues of blue and aqua, allow visitors a place to congregate or sit quietly by the fireplace. Above the fireplace is the Senator Hotel emblem, restored with a subtle red background and refined gold embellishments. On either side, panels of Xorel wall coverings display historical photography of the Hotel throughout its lifetime. The newly designed Senator Hotel provides the client with a luxurious, sophisticated, and modern representation on a classic building, sure to be used for events of all kinds.

The original render for client review utilizes six small lounge areas using a combination of chairs and sofas. Designed to resemble a hospitality experience, it uses gold accents and three carpets to highlight the central lobby that leads to the grand fireplace.

The final render has two lounge areas under one continuous carpet. This allows for ease of travel towards the elevators. The paint selections were muted for a subtle and simplistic modern experience.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER Fountain Valley Regional Medical Center created an Interior Master Plan that provides a unique opportunity to create an environment of FEELING that matches the level of service they provide while communicating to patients, guests and the community the refreshed brand and message. The design goals for this project included: the balance of conservative and modern design elements, creating the “Big Picture” with destination details, simple yet direct wayfinding, and refreshing color palette evoking energy, while also transforming the meaning of ‘Welcome’ through the use of signage, comfort, compassion and quality of design elements. The Design was developed to spread the Fountain Valley Regional Medical Center FEELING and Inspirational Healing philosophy. The following healing message was developed by the design team: “Inspirational Healing evokes emotional experiences by all. The Compassion felt within the environment at Fountain Valley Regional Medical Center promotes Vitality and directs focus and energy to Rejuvenate patients, guests, and staff by providing a healing environment which centers on the mind, body, and soul.” The desire was to create a modern, clean design with enhanced way finding that provides a welcoming environment to patients, guests, staff and the community while promoting health and healing through Fountain Valley Regional Medical Center. The palette that was developed is based around a subtle neutral field with bold pops of color to enhance wayfinding as a visual relief for patients, staff and guests as they make their way through the campus. This combination of element accents, with the new campus standards palette, has created a Campus Master Palette. The campus standard finishes are used throughout each wing and floor with added departmental accents to enhance each individual department concept, thus creating a cohesive master palette for Fountain Valley Regional Medical Center. The interior render to the right depicts the Spine Corridor Feature Walls, located just beyond the doors of the lobby, which define the start of the Public Spine corridor. The Feature Walls convey the message of Compassion, Vitality, and Rejuvenation through graphics printed on non-PVC wallcovering that gradually fades the length of the corridor in both directions. Printed acrylic panels on standoffs vary in multiple sizes to allow panels to be installed at multiple depths for over layering; portal colors compliment the message. Acrylic sleeves for insertion of staff and board member images will allow flexibility for the facility to easily change images.

A Welcome Mural, behind the Information Desk, is printed on non-PVC wallcovering with the word “Welcome” in multiple fonts, sizes, and languages.

The Admitting station glass illustrates each station number and has text of the word “Welcome” in multiple font’s types, sizes, different levels of opacity, and printed in portal colors.

The feature walls, located just beyond the doors of the lobby, define the start of the Public Spine corridor. This displays the message of Compassion, Vitality, and Rejuvenation with images and color while enhancing wayfinding.

Each Portal has a corresponding floor finish design to enhance wayfinding throughout the facility. Three bands of the portals associated color can be seen at all adjacent corridors.

The message of Vitality is reinforced as you make your way throughout the Campus. Portals are designated in key destination areas to assist in wayfinding and create a sense of arrival. Each portal has an associated color, graphic, signage, and quote. Auto CAD Floor Plan: NTS

The Patient rooms were designed to feel comfortable and provide an atmosphere for patients to Rejuvenate and heal. Each patient room has a standardized wainscot wall protection with a textured wall covering above to aide in creating soothing, yet durable, accommodations. Footwall panels define the space for the TV, white board, shelf, and clock while a cubical curtain provides privacy with the ability to enclose each bed.
