PROJECT DESCRIPTION

To design a 4-star luxury boutique hotel that relates to the culture of the city of Tokyo. The hotel will be a “luxury” space designed to accomodate business as well as vacation travelers.


HOTEL DESIGN

TOKYO DESIGN CONCEPT

Tokyo is the city where you can easily get lost. It is chaotic, driven by speed and light. Reflecting glass and steel, combined with an intensity of colors, makes you feel surreal and overwhelmed. Everything becomes somehow blurry and serene. The concept for the design is to combine all the dynamic aspects of the city with its melancholic and spiritual tradition, to show “the blurry” side of Tokyo. The designed space will become a “cherry blossom and white lotus scented” shelter, an echo of Tokyo behind the closed door.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

To design a 4- star luxury restaurant located on the ground floor of the 4- star boutique hotel. Taking the overall hotel concept and create a “deviation” that is relating to the culture of the city of Tokyo.


RESTAURANT DESIGN

TOKYO DESIGN CONCEPT

The concept for the design is to combine all the dynamic aspects of the city with its melancholic and spiritual tradition, to show “the blurry” side of Tokyo. The designed space will become a “cherry blossom scented” shelter, an echo of Tokyo behind the closed door. The hotel’s signature restaurant will have all the aspects of the hotel design but with a darker, more sensual feel. It will resemble Tokyo at night with its mysterious shadows and sparkly city lights.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

To design a 400 sq.ft studio apartment in the currently vacant Rosenwald Homes which are located in Bronzeville - one of Chicago’s historical South Side neighborhoods.


RESIDENTIAL DESIGN

CHICAGO DESIGN CONCEPT

The inspiration for the design is Gwendolyn Brooks’s poem Kitchenette Building. Brooks is a native of Bronzeville, thus connecting her work with the location. In her poem she introduces us to the idea of the dream the we all have. She uses the poetic technique known as realism, and expresses our dreams through her words. The design is focused on changes and how our dreams morph into reality. The furniture pieces are transitional and very functional for the small space. The overall design is inspired by Bronzeville’s architectural details like glass block windows and fire escapes.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Design of a new office space for Henricksen, a Premier office Furniture Dealership. Henricksen West Loop office was looking for a new location closer to the Merchandise Mart that will represent their commitment to quality and dedication to sustainable solutions.


COMMERCIAL DESIGN

CHICAGO DESIGN CONCEPT

The concept for the design is Fire and Ice, two powerful forces that in the process help to create a third one: Steel. The concept is to create a harmonious space that includes steel components which are a major part of the lines of furniture that Henricksen is representing, combined with fire and ice elements to enhance the elegant and timeless feel of the space. Ice walls and red hues combine with steel to realize this concept.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Renovating an existing four - level townhouse in the Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood. The clients are a married couple, one of whom is of European descent, the other of Moroccan. They want their home to reflect a fusion of their cultural heritages.


RESIDENTIAL DESIGN

MOROCCO DESIGN CONCEPT

The design is based on the northwestern Moroccan city of Chefchaouen. The entire town is washed in a dreamy blue/lavender, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Rif mountains, filled with white-washed homes with distinctive, powder-blue accents. In the proposed design, harmony is central. Achieved through combining Moroccan bohemian luxury with contemporary simplicity, practicality with the mysterious feel of Islam, humble mixes with elegant, the plain with the ornate, with the simplest materials used in complex, intricate ways.
