Haven Behavioral Health Center Senior Capstone 2019

Adolescent suicide is the second leading cause of death in the United States. A lack of knowledge and understanding from hospital staff, family and friends has been proven to increase the number of adolescents who attempt or re-attempt suicide. A preconceived stigma about suicide and lack of knowledge prevents providers, family and the community from supporting and helping the adolescents through this mental health crisis. Families and Healthcare staff often assume that after the individuals hospitalization that the issue has been resolved, but they don’t know how to talk about it or help the individual after they return home to their “normal� life and routine. An educational community center that will provide therapy for families and adolescents struggling with suicide as well as host classes that educate the community and near by hospital staff on the reality of adolescent suicide and how to prevent and help those who are thinking about it.

This section shows the relationship between the first and second floors of the lobby. The glass bubble inspired lights that swirl up to the second floor and the colorful mural that runs up the back wall intrigue users to explore the space upstairs.

Thories Used In The Design:

The PERMA theory is made up of five key components that support well-being when all five are met. The five categories are Positive Emotions, Engagement, Positive Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment. When all five of these areas are considered in the design process, the end result will be a meaningful place that encourages social connection, emotional well-being, and personal fulfillment. The Human Ecosystem Theory shows the relationship between three organizing concepts: humans, their environment, and the interactions between them. The environment around them is made up of two parts; the natural environment and the built environment. Change in any part of the system affects the system as a whole and its other subparts, creating the need for adaptation of the entire system, rather than minor attention to only one aspect of it. Place Attachment is described as an affective link between individuals and their environments. It is stated that Place Attachment consists of interactions between affect and emotions, knowledge and beliefs, and behaviors and actions regarding a setting. It has also been defined as effective bonds that people establish with specific places where they prefer to remain and feel comfortable and safe

Creative Concept:

The coral reef is dying off at an alarming rate, if people don’t begin to understand how their actions are impacting the coral reef and change what they are doingt the reef won’t last much longer. The coral reef is also home to millions of plants and animals who are all necessary to the growth and life of the reef. If one plant or species of fish were to die the entire coral reef would feel the impact of their death and suffer from it for years to come. It’s absence would cause a gap in the ecosystem that couldn’t easily be repaired. This analogy is similar to adolescents experiencing a mental crisis. The people surrounding the adolescent need to be aware of how their actions are affecting the individuals. By changing their harmful actions they can help benefit the adolescent to continue growing and thriving throughout the rest of their lives.

In Japanese folklore, cranes are mystical beings that live for over a thousand years. Tradition believes that if one folds a thousand origami cranes they will be granted one wish. Because of this, the crane is a symbol of hope and longevity. Mothers even pray over their children, “O flock of heavenly cranes, cover my child with your wings.� From the paper crane, we draw a unique form, one composed of triangles of overlapping layers of folded paper. We hope to use these as a positive distraction integrated with biophilic design. Cranes are active, but they are never hurried. We draw from the traditional ideas of peace, grace, and good luck that we bid to all patients at our ambulatory care center.

They have the budget to build their dream house and want the house to promote an active and healthy lifestyle using evidence based design. The house is located in Mount Tabor, Portland, Oregon. Several design choices were made to promote a healither lifestlye for the family such as keeping technology out of the living areas and providing plenty of natural light to enter into the areas invites the family to spend more time focusing on each other without screens.

With the boutique fitness trend on the rise, we were tasked to work with a marketing and graphic design team to create a branded boutique fitness studio. In response, we designed Native, a rock-climbing and circuit training workout center. We collected inspiration from nature and created a sense of community in the design. We provided an outlet for our clients to escape from the civilized world and unleash their primal instincts in their workout. Various sitting areas are scattered throughout the gym allowing the members to feel like they can mingle eith other members and friends before and after their workouts. Flexible gym spaces provides multiple areas where new workout tools and styles can be added easily allowing for new experiences regularly for members.

A clear glass wall allows for people in the cafe to see down into the gym below and get excited about all that Native has to offer.

boston loft Boston Lofts

Johan Erikson is a systems consultant remodeling a luxury two-story loft building in downtown historic Boston. The building has a lobby and rental apartments on one half of the building and a personal apartment for Mr. Erikson on the other half. The client wants his space to be influenced by his Icelandic heritage as well as his modern, eclectic style. When thinking about Icelandic culture, the most obvious characteristic is its connection with nature. With such beautiful landscapes, it’s extremely evident to see how a group of people could love the space around them, but their appreciation does not stop with the scenery. Everything in Iceland is open and accepting, from the environment, to interacting with neighbors, even down to political viewpoints.This is evident in their environmentally friendly design through the use of negative space, simplistic decor, and large windows that create a considerable amount of light in a space and allow the users to appreciate the scenery. These principles of light, space, and line come together in harmony in the design of the loft apartment. A natural variety is found among the eclectic style of the apartment with the juxtaposition of texture, color, and size. In example, a modern staircase rises along the old-fashioned facade of the building and the very open lobby leads to small, enclosed entryways to each apartment.

K. Lewis Design Internship 2018-2019

From May 2018-May 2019, I worked for K. Lewis Interior Design in Little Rock, Arkansas. My internship gave me the opportunity to learn first hand important design skills you can only learn on the job. I was also afforded the opportunity to actually utilize the skills I’ve learned within the major as well as the chance to create design solutions that were built and used in various projects. Over the summer in 2018, we expanded and opened a showroom, this provided me the experience managing items coming in and out of the showroom, setting up and photographing items for social media and connecting with clients and vendors. 832-948-4474 @KatiePeoplesDesign
