maria kelly giles | interior design Design Philosophy

Design should complement the fluidity of our daily lives. We need spaces to stimulate well-being, provoke liveliness and provide comfort for varying lifestyles. As designers, we can accomplish these goals by understanding client needs and striving to deliver above and beyond their expectations.

The handrail was not part of the initial design. As the space was being used, we noticed the walls becoming damaged and then solved the problem by exchanging the original chair and added the protective strip

maria kelly giles | interior design Office Design Pantorium Ames, Iowa, Main Street MHA, Office Space


office design|mental health america Objective In partners of two, the team was assigned to a client and a building space. Our location was the Pantorium located in the heart of the historic downtown area of Ames, IA. The main focus of this project was to design an adequate office interior and also earning LEED points for certification. The building design was to be as sustainable as possible. The scope of sustainablity was from green roofs to post-consumer recycled materials.

Client

Mental Health America is a non-profit company that offers a scope of services. They are advocates for the mentally disabled, have prevention, detection and treatment for substance dependentusers, educational outreach to the community, and promote social justice for those with mental or substance disabilities.

Pantorium|existing conditions

Color, material, and pattern will create harmonious chi that enhances personal light with creative and supportive energy. We used the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui as a guide throughout the project. We designed the space by taking aspects from feng shui and abstracting concepts, shapes and color theory to help stimulate the interior enviornemnt. We used the shape of the bagua for space configuration and then we used the bagua color association to color code the space accordingly.

maria kelly giles | interior design Healthcare Design Atria Encinitas Encinitas, California CCRC Retirement Community


retirement center|atria encinitas Objective

This project focused on three-dimensional spatial development. We focused on a large scale, multi-unit institutional project. This was a four person team effort working towards a completion of a CCRC community using universal design, ADA codes, and incorporating the future needs of the baby boomer population.

site

The client, Atria Encinitas, is located near the San Diego, California area. Their site includes a north and south facility. The north building is comprised of three floors and the south building is two stories high. Each building will require its own dining area, activity support areas, and living accomodations.

site aerial view In Atria , the floor plan offers multiple living options. In each room the team incorporated space for a queen sized bed, a small kitchenette with storage, ADA compliant bathrooms,and living quarters large enough to accommodate most tenants’ furniture.

In the skilled nursing building, the rooms do not include the kitchenettes and tend to be a little smaller in order for tenants to get around easier.

Some trends we found most traditional of the Chanel brand is its use of quilting and tweed. We used these fabrics as inspiration for the space. We included a life size quilted wall and used the tweed pattern as our display case shelving system.

maria kelly giles | interior design Institutional design Rem Koolhass Museum


museum design|rem koolhass & moorish culture Objective

The ideation project consisted of a two-step process. The first part was to research an assigned architect or designer. As a group of four, we researched the methods and ideology of Rem Koolhaas. The second step was to split up into partners and research an assigned culture. My group was given the Moorish culture. The final step was to combine the two aspects and create a gallery space to display the works and accomplishments of Koolhass. This project primarily focused on research, group think, and model making.

“Architecture can't do anything that the culture doesn't.” - Koolhass
