Hospice House

At Oasis Care, those nearing the end of life’s journey are made comfortable. By providing a space that feels like home, families are confident in choosing this path for their loved ones. Though often seen as a difficult time, Oasis Care aims to make this a positive and peaceful time of reflection. The design of the home offers dynamic living spaces, personal outdoor areas, hydrotherapy options, family supportive spaces and interactive activities.

Oasis Care

Located in the Outerbanks, North Carolina. It’s important the final moments of one’s life be a quiet, personal and peaceful time of reflection.

The Oak Tree represents strength and growth. The smaller circles inside the wood are called growth rings and represent the lifelong journey we’re all on. Through every tree looks similar; at the core they’re different. This idea embodies the foundations of healthcare in that each patient is unique.

Corporate Office

The Urban Coworking Loft strives to provide quality over quantity within their coworking spaces. They hope to evoke creative thinking and collaboration with other like-minded people; which is absent in the traditional workplace model. The most important thing to keep in mind when designing for this company is maximizing the number of available workspaces, while making them comfortable. Utilizing organic circulation promotes collaboration and interaction of new innovative ideas between everyone. Additional factors to include while designing are ergonomics, universal design, ADA clearances and sustainability.

The Urban Coworking Loft is a flexible workspace that allows individuals to collaborate and work together. The brand begins to launch in Helsinki, Finland. The slogan of the brand is, “A Home for Creative Beasts,” therefore the interior space should support this goal.

Collaborative Jungle Gym Coworking Sandbox

A playground represents the Urban Coworking Loft perfectly. The children who utilize these spaces are full of energy and creativity. As children, we view the world with an open mind and are constantly learning. Employees should do the same. By always learning and experiencing new things we remain innovative. The playground is very collaborative but, also challenging. With constant stimulation, children develop problem solving skills. Similar to a playground, the corporate office should represent different zones. Since the workforce includes four different generations, people are drawn to specific spaces. Having variety within the work environment is crucial to ensuring a company’s success and employee happiness.

The condo is located at the Ink Block Apartments in South Boston, which is within walking distance of many engaging amenities.

Concept : Dandelion

An elderly couple such as the Halpert’s want a home that will grow with them as they age. A dandelion represents serenity, peace and the evolution of life’s journey. While the powerful color symbolizes boldness and warmth.
