01 AGING IN PLACE Interdisciplinary 3 Week Project (Interior Design, Architecture and Landscape Architecture): Spring 2019
Project Location: 916 11th, Nevada, IA SOCIALIZATION | MOBILITY A purpose of the design is to enhance the opportunity for social interaction within the senior communities; taking into account their different levels of comfort, mobility, and ideal social space. The spaces we are creating allow a single occupant to feel connected to the community regardless of limitations. These spaces, along with their diverse levels of intimacy, create a network of wayfind areas that people can find with ease. The design targets senior communities with ranging levels of mobility and comfortability, ages starteing at 60 - 70. Our seniors would be just entering the aging stage and having an active and outgoing lifestyle.
Considering the daylight and space for the social interaction between two residentials, we created unique shape of indoor courtyard called Serenity Garden and placed each duplex in zic-zac pattern to maximize the use of daylight.

Community outdoor social spaces will be setup to accommodate for all levels of mobility and comfortability. We have created different types of spaces with different levels of exposure to create a diverse networks of social spaces and wayfindings.

04 ASSISTED LIVING “Pila de Piedra” Two-person Team Project: Spring 2018
Doldam Interiors, which is the firm name that partner and I come up with, has a philosophy that represents stability, uniqueness and adaptability. With this philosophy, we will satisfy the client’s needs and wants and provide the highest level of creativity and innovation. Doldam Interiors inspired concept ideas from historic site and remains that Panama Pacifico has. As time goes, the historic site adjust to the surrounding environment and never be the same as it used to be, but the beauty of it remains. Elders, they cannot be same as they were young, and they need the support as they get older, but still they enjoy their high quality of life. Doldam Interiors is here to support their advanced life. We use asymmetry and contrast to emphasize the design concept.
The site plan on the left shows both community and household areas. However, in this porfolio, household will not be shown since my partner designed it.
