Mason Manor Murder

Mystery

Dinner

Theater


ADAPTIVE REUSE After conducting local and regional analyses, the Old Masonic Temple of Waukegan, Illinois was selected as the site for Mason Manor. A site visit and reuse study confirmed that this landmarked historical building was an ideal location to implement the concept for a murder mystery dinner theater and hotel. A 3D investigation and space shaping helped determine the building’s capacity for the following areas:

MASON MANOR

Entrance / Lobby Dinner Theater, Kitchen & Bar Auditorium / Rental Dance Studio & Costume Area Retail Space Guest Rooms


CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT Mason Manor’s Art Deco inspired design will enhance the architectural integrity of the Old Masonic Temple, which was constructed in 1920. The four-story temple boasts a pair of two-story rear auditoriums, each with an unobstructed view of their stage thanks to the structure’s steel construction. The lower level auditorium will be designated for the murder mystery dinner theater, while the upper level will be available rental space. Uses may include theater performances, concerts, comedy acts, lectures, and community functions. On each of the four floors there are multiple smaller spaces, each with unique characteristics that are ideal for guest suites. In an effort to preserve the original structure, an existing dance studio will be utilized to teach guests time period choreography complete with costume - further contributing to the themed experience of Mason Manor Murder Mystery Hotel.

LAURA GWYN INTERIORS INTERIOR DESIGN INTERNSHIP Internship is a monitored program for senior-level students to work part-time within the interior design industry. Field experience is an opportunity for students to apply and advance their knowledge, skills and professionalism under the supervision of a qualified mentor.

SELDEN RESIDENCE RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENTS This studio course explores various types of residential dwellings as they relate to different inhabitants. Project work applies the programming and design development phases of the residential design process to include information gathering, needs analysis, concept and spatial development, and FF&E selections based on research and suitability.

LOCKWOOD KITCHEN KITCHEN + BATH DESIGN This course challenges students to use planning requirements to create universal and accessible designs. Construction, electrical, and basic plumbing are taught with emphasis on these applications within residential kitchens and baths. Industry relevant nomenclature and product information are used to create technical documents and custom aesthetic solutions.

SHAPE WELLNESS CENTER INTERIOR DESIGN THESIS I In this senior-level course, students use critical thinking skills through research, writing, discussion, and problem-solving. Emphasis is on the identification of a design problem that could be better met through more responsible design. Students choose a research topic with instructor approval.

INTERIOR DESIGN THESIS II In this senior-level studio course, students develop a viable and visual solution for the project typically researched in Interior Design Thesis I. Solutions incorporate environmentally sound, cost effective, and responsible design methods to influence an audience using creative delivery methods.


REVERSE ENGINEERING

A custom made object was selected from an existing interior space, and then deconstructed to discover its materiality and construction. This was a group assignment. The team members researched and discovered the construction and materiality of the selected feature and described different ways to materialize the object using alternative materials and methods. Team members broke down the objects using 2D and 3D modeling techniques to fully understand the parts and the whole.

FURNITURE & ACCESSORIES


FUSION FURNITURE HISTORY OF DESIGN III This studio presents an in-depth study of the architecture and furniture developments of several major non-western cultures. Religious, philosophical, and social beliefs and customs are emphasized while construction methods, building materials, motifs, fabrics, and decorative arts are explored. Students work within teams to present their research on Middle Eastern, Asian, African, Mesoamerican, and North American cultures. Projects include the development of furniture and accessory designs created through the fusion of world styles.

GRAZE PENDANT SPECIALTY DESIGN This senior level studio course covers the physical and psychological factors that impact hospitality environments. Students are expected to graphically demonstrate original and viable solutions. Research on human factors, codes, and lighting are combined with product mix and multi-sensory aspects of design to influence perceived value to the customer.

SUN BURST LANTERN FORM + SPACE Form and Space examines the formal understanding and manipulation of the basic organizing principles of the three dimensional worlds. Students translate 2-d design principles to solve 3-D design problems using basic hand tools and readily available materials. Form and Space also addresses the manipulation of 3-D space to manipulate visual experience.
