INTRODUCTION Hello, my name is Kristen Romano and I am a third-year Bachelor of Interior Design student at the Ryerson School of Interior Design. I am most interested in hospitality, commercial, and institutional design with a focus on human psychology and mental health. Through design and spatial planning, I strive to make a large impact on three main pillars of community: education, medicine, and leisurely activity. I was recently in the position of Teaching Assistant for a graphic communications course primarily due to my skills in hyperrealistic architectural rendering technique. And I supplement these skills with hands-on experience in digital fabrication and the workshop.


SYNC is a mixed residential and commercial development with student housing and hip-hop studios for charitable organization Unity Charity. With sound as the conceptual backbone of this project, sound bar motifs derived from the recordings of the words “Unity”, “Together”, and “Harmony” are used to inform lighting strategies and feature ceiling details. SYNC strives to embody the energy of youth and creative pursuit. The mission of this project is to provide a social hub and safe space for the youth community to gather, both students and underserved youth alike.
