IDE Restoration Center

Building Perspective modeled and rendered in Sketchup


T

he IDE Restoration Center is located in Tijuana BC, MX. The city is home to many immigrants from Latin America who come with the intention to reach the American dream and never make it pass the borderline. These lives are left without shelter,food, and clothing. Ide provides these needs with the intention of restoring and settling them in Tijuana through free counseling services and job networking. With these services, IDE is able to reduce the large influx of illegal immigrants that cross the Mexico/U.S.A border each year. It is the intention of the designer to design around the needs of IDE Ministries. In order to accomplish this goal the designer has created a healing environment where everyone will feel welcomed not only by IDE Volunteers, but by the building itself. The spaces have been planned to encourage interaction among end users, through this people will built strong relationships and will open up and will be lead to a true healing experience. Studies have shown that nature reduces stress and depression. Therefore, the entire design concept of this center will be to combine interior aesthetic with exterior aesthetic which nature has already provided for us. Natural primary design elements and materials have been chosen to take part in regards to interior and exterior aesthetics.

Thesis Design

In this senior level studio course, students develop a viable and visual solution for the project initially researched in Thesis Programming. All phases of the design process are covered in depth and implemented into a total design development and contract document package from which a client may place orders or a contractor may build. Skills from the entire program such as lighting, codes and specifications, color theory, furniture and finish selection, and client presentation techniques, culminate into a portfolio project. Students’ solutions incorporate environmentally sound, cost effective and responsible design methods.


This first Collage was developed to represent the floor plan of IDE at a conceptual stage. The concept begins with a spiral leading to well being. Three trees representing nature and floating planks to represent the intent of architectural and design elements.

The second Collage was created to represent the strong connection of the exterior with nature. This is done by creating a pavilion exterior and levels leading to a grassy area where people can sit and interact.

The third Collage explores the essence of IDE Ministries. People interacting, helping each other and a section where children are welcomed, for a place where kids have fun and feel loved, parents will follow.

This model was created to explore the concept of the interior and exterior connecting without architectural barriers. It was the intent of the designer to break the box mindset and add curves and levels that were originally taken from IDE logo and incorporate them into the buildings’ aesthetics.

This set of four conceptual drawings show the analogies done to reach the design intent. First, the site was analyzed in regards to wind currents and solar paths. Second, bubble relationship diagrams were produced to analyze the relationship of the spaces without thinking of proper space planning yet. Third, the bubble diagram is inserted in the building shell. Fourth, the Spaces are properly spaced planned into the shell and the landscape is used as a connector between the interior and exterior. Although the space meets the requirements of the program at this stage, it leaves the idea of connecting the interior and exterior through nature with more to desire. The drawing underneath is the breakthrough if the concept.

Doodle Sketch that emerges after countless sketches, and satisfies the design intent. * All drawings represent original scale

Sketch that is taken from the doodle sketch to clearly understand the concept. Here we are able to see a series of platforms that does not stop at the ground level, but instead submerges the structure into the ground, merging structure and the site into one instead of structure on site.


This set of perspective sketches further analyzes the design intent viewed from the interior and exterior of the building. The perspective on the far right shows the designers intent to unify not only building and site, but the city view on the background. Tijuana is a mountainous city that has no proper organization when building homes. Many of these homes are built on mountain sides and homes are staggered irregularly creating an interesting site from a distance. The viewers eyes are guided through the square-like sanctuary and then leads to the staggered, multi-leveled ceiling of the Center and finally to a design that has been created unintentionally through Tijuana’s’ development, the staggered homes on the mountain.

In this drawing, an elevated front view of the reception desk in the conference center is shown. A detailed cut section of the seating bench along the half standing wall is also shown.


This perspective shows the view from the grass area into the Center. To achieve the open feel intent, the concrete block walls have been removed and large glass panels have been placed. This gives the structure a dramatic feel and achieves continuity between the interior and exterior.

This perspective shows the children area and the custom water feature and planter which also serves as a back for the custom bench that runs along the perimeter of planter. The colored stainless steel twisted stools by Frank Gehry will serve as seating for the children and large round pendants placed in a grid pattern will hang from the open Plenum where the red exposed beams are also used as design elements.

This is a detailed section showing the conference room wall which will be covered by translucent architectural resin. a section of the water feature is also shown. Finally, a section of the multiple descending platforms that defy the limits set by the ground line.

hildren will experience a journey to well being when visiting this LEED Certified pediatricians’ office. There will be a well and a sick waiting area to reduce the chances of getting well children sick. An educational exhibition area had to be incorporated into a section of the building, but the designer incorporated the building itself into an exhibition. The theme of the clinic will be that of a tree, educating on the perfect ecosystem where a tree regenerates itself into well being through the process of the four seasons. From beginning to end the fours season and the role of the tree within the season will be explained to end users.

ity Island is opening a new location in Chicago’s’ Greektown section. The owner has acquired the services of various designers to conceptually design this new location. The proposals were compiled into a portfolio from which the owner will choose design elements and ideas that best fulfills City Islands’ need.

Custom Hand made Chandelier By : Estudios Hokmah

The new location of City Island is located in a spectacular location surrounded my industrial buildings. As this design is analyzed it is the intention of the designer that the true Design intent unfold before the readers eyes; restaurants located in an industrial buildings can be beautiful and stylish when the natural beauty of the building is exposed rather than hidden. Wood beam columns, brick walls, large window panels and an exposed plenum are key elements for an urban retreat. Cost effectiveness is the advantage that clients and designers like when designing an urban space. One of the key concepts in urban design, is that much of the design is based on creativity and elements that are used for purposes other than their original intention. It is proposed that this new location of City Island takes this daring and exiting avenue in regards to its interior aesthetics. In this proposal, only the three main features of the restaurant will be shown. First the custom wine cellar, the Custom Bar, and the wonderful birch wall which is the essence of City Island Restaurants.

City Island Greektown Chicago, Illinois, USA

Specialty Design

This Senior level studio covers the physical and psychological factors that impact customers and employess of retail and restaurant environments. Students are expected to graphically show originality, creativity and viability within their solutions. Research on human factors, codes and lighting are combined with product mix and multi-sensory aspects of design to influence perceived value to the customer.


Bar

Visually connecting the bar and the host, while considering privacy for clientele sitting in the bar was a challenge. Continuity was achieved by running the granite countertop as the working surface for both pieces of furniture. The hostess station features the granite, an exposed brick wall to the side, two task pendants which chords disappear into the plenum, and a wonderful sign that hangs from the ceiling featuring City Islands’ lit logo. The hung sign also serves as a divider which not only separates both spaces, but gives enough privacy for bar employees and clientele sitting at the bar. A soffit hangs from the ceiling and adjustable recessed luminaries with dimmers are used to light the beautiful countertop that runs straight down and eventually lowers down to 14� making this special bar ADA accessible. The drop down is also used as a service station.

Bar perspective. modeled and rendered with AutoCAD

The bar also features a lit base. The section below helps one understand the design intent. Separated planks may be wood studs that are either painted by a chosen color or wrapped with a metal texture sheet. The planks are lit (lamps on dimmers) from behind and light escapes through the space between the planks, creating extraordinary shadow effects on nearby surfaces. Existing back bar shelves may be refinished and custom doors are added. The doors will resemble the design of the bar base, connecting both, the base and the wall hung shelves as one design.

Birch Wall and Water Feature

simple modification by dressing and exposing some of the architectural features can make this an extraordinary feature wall in City Island. The modification involves the following: -Removing the drywall by exposing the brick and embracing the industrial beauty of this building and restoring it to its original state. -A simple application of drywall and glass tile will dress up the existing limestone water feature. The City Island logo will be featured in this wall by using the water access and running a water curtain over the logo and adding focal luminaries from underneath to make the logo a clear focal point. -Another branding feature, along with the logo, is the birch wall. It is suggested that this feature be located at the sides of the water feature. Eyeball focal luminaries petrude from a simple rectilinear soffit to be build along the water feature and birch wall. -Stone cladding has been specified to be applied at the base of the birch wall, but for cost effective purposes the existing limestone base can be left and it would not hinder the design intent.

his extraordinary home is situated in Rancho Santa Fe north of San Diego, CA. The home was designed in the style of Robert Adam for the Grant family, a retired couple. The Grants like to entertain their friends and family, as a result they frequently have guests in their home. Two special guest also visit them quite often, their twin granddaughters. Taking all of the above into consideration the designer was able to transform the Grant Residence into not only a period appropriate home, but also a home which embraces the multiple functions of the residence.

FIRST FLOOR PLAN

The services that the Grants required where a full space plan of the first and second floor and full designs of the Kitchen, Great Room, Master Bedroom, and Master Bathroom. The home is in the style of Robert Adam. Through carefully researching this branch of English Neoclassical period the designer was able to add architectural features, specify furniture and textiles that embrace the style. The home also features custom period furniture designs that also embrace state of the art technology.

here are five members to the Cantu family. The family built their home in 2002 and has done no remodeling whatsoever to the home since they bought it. After ten year the family has decided to remodel their kitchen. The Cantus wants to replace the cabinetry and appliances. They also want the layout of the kitchen to be functional to their needs, specially their tendency to entertain often.

Field Measure Elevations

After a quick sketch of the proposed display cabinets with glass doors the clients, who at first were skeptical, loved and agreed upon the idea.

Concpet Sketches

After several meetings with the clients, the designer went to their home to review their wants, needs, and to field measure the space. The home currently has a typical layout of a track home kitchen; it has no proper dinning space which causes limitation when entertaining. In addition to their kitchen remodel they want to build an addition to their dinning space to accommodate a table that sits eight people. Three preliminary floor plan sketches were presented to the clients, from which one of the plans was chosen and construction documents were created.

he Frohnmeyers are a retired couple living in a high-rise condominium near downtown Los Angeles, California. The couple has hired a design team of two Isaac Rojas and Kaylyn Tunis, to re-design the master bathroom. Since the space is located in a high rise, the team has suggested wrapping the design around existing architectural feature, dropped ceilings and windows that finish into a wall without a pane. The Interior tile material is continues to the exterior creating a connection between the interior and exterior. Three concept models where provided for the frohnmeyers to decide the design route. The couple settled on the third concept model which has a modern/urban feel. The model also echoes the exterior of the high-rise itself. A modern, Elegant, design with clean lines has been proposed for this bathroom and is prone to be a sanctuary for this retired couple for years to come.

History of Bathhaus:

Bathhaus

Barrington, Illinois, USA

Internship

Bathhaus Internship

Jay and Leslie have had personal relationships with the Kohler family, the Rohl family and the Dornbracht family to name a few, for two decades. They are so pleased to continue supplying their customers with these incredible product lines. Bathhaus is a firm that takes on kitchen bath projects, but the projects consist mostly of residential bathroom design.

35

Over twenty years ago, Jay and Leslie Eiring started their own business. Jay has a degree in Journalism and Leslie has a degree in the school of Architecture. With their combined vision they spent much of their first years of business traveling to the ISH fair in Frankfurt Germany to learn about new products. In those early years there was very little available to us here in the United States. Jay and Leslie knew that the bath would one day become an oasis for individuals to relax and unwind and the kitchen would become a functional, comfortable, gathering place for the entire family. Bathhaus began in Lake Zurich in 1988. After 10 years of renting in Lake View Plaza, Jay and Leslie decide to move their business home to Barrington. Their relationships with their vendors are long and true.

Internship is a monitored program for upper-level students to work part-time with cooperating employers in design and architecture. Students complete a portfolio of their work experience and employers evaluate their responsibilities, professionalism, and business skills. This class is available to qualified students who obtain approval from the Academic Director.
