quetzalcoatl table

The furniture designed in this catalogue were inspired by two different countries and their cultures. Yemen and Mexico were fused together in the design of these four pieces. The Yemen bench was designed following the custom of low furniture, the curves of the backrest were designed by a motif used in the architecture seen in Yemen. The quetzalcoatl table was designed after the Mexican culture of the Aztecs. The top of the table was inspired by the Aztec calendar and the post of the table was inspired by the snake monolith that is very well known in the Aztec culture. The mirror was inspired by a motif often seen in Yemen architecture. The half circles were rotated and converted into the frame of the mirror. The Sun Light chandelier was inspired by the stone of the sun; or as it is better known as the Aztec calendar, the very geometrical shapes are inspired by the patterns that were commonly used in the culture.

the crowley resort 20

This adaptive re-use study of the Motorola Building in Harvard Illinois, is intended to revitalize the community as well as surrounding communities. Revitalizing the housing market in the area would also be ideal. The city will also seek the revitalization of commercial areas outside the downtown area. The closing of the Motorola left 5,000 people without jobs, being able to replenish those jobs would bring opportunities to many. Motorola was a telecommunications company that held its regional headquarters in the Harvard Motorola building. With the decline of technology in the early 2000’s, Motorola was forced to downsize and closed the doors to this facility in 2003.


The 1.5 million square foot Motorola building consists of 4 campuses, 2 daycare facilities, 1,100 person capacity dining room, an auditorium, fitness center, running trails, volleyball and basketball courts. The building also includes spaces for offices, manufacturing, distribution, and central services spaces, 7,000 parking spaces available and 28 underground executive parking spots. Other redevelopment efforts have been made to revitalize the city of Harvard. In 2008, a $1.8 million revitalization project was completed in the downtown area. In that same year a new Wal-Mart Supercenter was also completed. Based on the local analysis a resort would be perfect in the Motorola Building.

Redeveloping efforts will affect the city in numerous ways. There are plenty of real estate opportunities available as well as commercial and retail. The utilization of this building will bring people, as well as more business opportunities. This facility will offer upscale dining, movie theatre, banquet hall, retail center, and a hotel and spa. The area around this facilitiy is in fact blighted due to the tremendous amount of damage the failure of the company caused, not only to the workers but to homeowners in the city of Harvard. This will be remedied by marketing the facility in a completely different manner, being able to use the building will be beneficial to everyone in the city. Produced in AutoDesk Revit Architecture.

A classical modern concept will be incorporated throught the fitness center. The space will also provide an edgier design in more active areas. The staff areas will be kept clean and relaxed. The reception area will feature a very important part of the design because it is the first area customers walk through. The lounge and refreshment area will be adjacent to the reception providing easy access to relaxation destinations. The overall design will be separated by four different buildings. Each pod will serve a different function. Pods will be separated by pool, dance and yoga, and fitness center, and the main building will be centrally located. Areas with high energy levels will use bright colors to increase heart rate and breathing. Areas with lower stress levels will use

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

ORCHID pediatrics


The intent for the design implemented into Orchid Pediatrics is to keep the staff alert in a fun and exciting environment, and to keep patients calm and relaxed. The concept of a botanical garden can create a calming environment on its own, which is very important in keeping children relaxed in a usually chaotic environment. The space will also provide a space in which children can become distracted. The reception area will be of great importance in the overall design of the office space, it is the area in which patients will be able to relax and enjoy the design of the office. It will be adjacent to the reception area and also easily accessible to the restrooms, allowing clients to be well taken care of. The break room will be designed using an open gathering space to encourage staff interaction. The copy/fax/supply area will be centrally located allowing it to be accessible to all staff members, and will be enclosed in order to keep the appropriate indoor air quality. The exam rooms will be of high importance in the design of the office they will be the core of the building, it is where the patients will tend to be at a more stressful state, therefore being able to keep them relaxed is very important. This pediatric space will be accentuated with earthly tones. Brilliant pops of color and artwork will promote way finding, and calmed down with rich dark flooring. Curvilinear lines will be exposed in all areas of the design. Recycled materials and flooring will be widely integrated into the office space. Sustainable office systems will be used. Zero VOC paints will be used. Sensored lighting will cut electrical bills down. Botanical gardens are a beautiful part of nature and inspire lines and curves, therefore it makes sense to keep in mind the importance of sustainability. In conclusion, Orchid Pediatrics will be portrayed in a modern/earthly way to encourage relaxation in a stressful environment. The colors and textures used in the office will liven up the commonly boring spaces that most doctor offices are known for.
