AB OU T M E Hello, I’m Kristen. I’m graduating this April with a dual bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and Professional Sales. During my time at Weber State, I’ve enjoyed studying subjects like architectural history, historical furniture, and textile design. Weber has taught me the importance of a well-designed interior and how much it impacts us in our everyday lives. My work experience has molded me into the designer I am today. Early in my career, I did an internship for The LDS Church where I had the opportunity to manage properties, help with remodels and furnish homes. After that, I worked for Alice Lane Home Collection where I learned about high-end residential furniture, how to interact with clients, meet sales goals, and how to “properly” style a space. I currently work for AJC Architects where I have received invaluable experience in commercial design and have grown through working with talented mentors. I have a knack for branding companies through their workplace and problem-solving through space planning. I recently have a new-found love for travel thanks to a study abroad trip to Europe. I enjoy a good taco, going on walks with my husband, yoga, cooking, spending time with family and friends and playing with my cute dog, Pippa.

NEXT Student Design Competition

08


Project Description junior year

fall 2016

The opportunity to work on this project came from participation in the annual “Steelcase Student Next Competition.” To compete, I was required to design and brand an 11,000 square-foot office space for a fictional interior design company. This project stretched my abilities as a designer and required the use of several software. For example, it was completed using Revit to create the space, Lumion to render, and the Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop and InDesign) for the presentation layout. Of all the work I completed at Weber State, I am most proud of “NEXT.” The hard work I put into this project led to national recognition, as I was awarded a top 10 finish in a design competition which consisted of more than 800 students across the country. (Steelcase also sent me a Think Chair!) Most importantly, this project taught me that I can do hard things.

BATH PROJECT NKBA Student Design Competition

12


Project Description senior year

fall 2017

This bathroom was designed for a National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) student competition. The requirements to compete consisted of designing a bathroom for a home that would be built for Habitat for Humanity while staying within a $4,000 material budget. Although this was tough, with enough research I was able to find materials that were both aesthetically pleasing and utilitarian. I designed two compartments for this bathroom, one being the shower and tub/shower and the other being the vanity and linen closet. I used three software to complete this project: Revit for the floor plans and elevations, Lumion to render and PowerPoint for my materials board. It is important to point out this was designed with instructions that this would be the only bathroom to service the entire home. Functionally, this meant that more than one person may need to use the bathroom at a time. Taught me to be creative and practical with my designs. I also loved having the opportunity to apply my skills in order to contribute to an organization that helps so many others.

THE JOHNSON RESIDENCE Residential Home

16


Project Description junior year

spring 2017

The Johnson Residence was designed for a fictional family consisting of a mom, dad and two kids (a boy and a girl). This was by far one of the most fun projects I have done in school. Since this was a fictional family, I was ultimately able to create their wants and needs. I had a blank slate. As a result, the design style I chose for the home was very eclectic and whimsy. I threw in a little bit of everything! This project was completed using several software. I started with Revit, then imported it in to Sketchup, and then rendered in Lumion.

countries visited

ireland, scotland, england, spain and france

Study Abroad is by far my favorite experience from my 4 years at Weber State University! First and foremost, I learned on study abroad. But I did not just learn about interior design and architecture. I learned about myself. Traveling outside of the country for the first time is something that I will never forget. We started our trip in Ireland where I fell in love with everything and everyone in that country. The Irish are delightful, and the country is more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Scotland was beautiful as well. There we had the opportunity to see much of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work. After studying him, and his work in a textbook, it was surreal to be walking through the spaces where my mind had spent so much time without my body. After Scotland, we took a train to England. We stopped in York and then spent a few days in London. The amount of history there is absolutely mind-blowing. Experiencing the Westminster Abbey was awe-inspiring. It left a strong impression on all of us that visited. From England we flew to Spain. While in Spain, we studied Antoni Gaudi’s works. This was another moment on the trip where I could not believe I was in the buildings that I had studied in textbooks for so long. It was beautiful, whimsical, and enlightening. After Spain, a small group of us went to France. France is charming and, like the other areas we visited, is filled with so much history. I experienced as much as possible while visiting: the Eiffel Tower, the many chateaus, Versallies, the LDS temple, the Notre Dame and of course macaroons on my 23rd birthday. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to experience these things and I consider myself lucky to have had such a life-changing opportunity.

TINY STUDIO Design Build Project

Project Description junior year

fall 2016

contributors

IDT 3025 class

Meet Julie, Deon and the net-zero “Tiny Studio� built on their property. This house is just under 500 square feet and features a kitchen, bathroom, living area, and a loft with a bedroom. The Tiny Studio is solar powered and has features like a composting toilet. Many students from various discipline, including design engineering technology, manufacturing engineering technology, and electrical engineering came together to construct this building. The interior design department was brought on to design the interior of the space. Although this took many hours outside of class (and included a lot of hands-on work) it was so fun! Julie and Deon are world travelers and had so many unique pieces to incorporate into their home. To name a few, we designed a kitchen and bathroom, framed art, ordered furniture pieces, and installed shelving and flooring. During this experience, I learned how to use various types of saws, a staple gun, and how to lay a tile backsplash. One of my favorite parts of this studio is its history. Where the building now stands there once was a barn. We took the old barn wood and used it for base boards, stair risers and a feature wall. This was one of my favorite aspects of the design because it gave a beautiful homage to what was once there.

E-LEAVEN 48 Hour Design Charette

Every fall, combined with DET, Construction management, and BIS, Weber State University interior design majors participate in a 48-hour design Charette. This includes a design challenge that is presented to all participating students at a combined meeting, followed by a frantic, 48-hour competition in which students compete against each other to develop a solution. This particular project was for Eduardo Mondlane secondary school in Mozambique, Africa. We needed to develop plans for a building that would include two class rooms and a library. For this project, the exterior is made entirely out of CMU block, which is easily available in Africa, helps with security needs, keeps the sun out, and is ultimately easy for students to build. The interior consisted of two classrooms on each end with a library in the middle. Instead of having walls in between, we proposed coil-style garage doors to give flexibility to each space for fluctuating classroom sizes. The roof was designed as a water shed so that when it rained the water would run down the back of the school into a garden for students and the community to grow produce. Out of 11 student groups, this project won first place and was chosen to be built in Mozambique by student volunteers during the summer of 2017. The software used to complete this project was Revit and PowerPoint.

Concept Statement: Project E-leaven has been created to provide the students at the Eduardo Mondlane Secondary School with three essentials: an elevated educatonal experience, safety and protecEon for the children, and support for their community and culture. We specifically designed the space with the children in mind, ensuring that they have a comfortable place to learn and study. All of the building materials, as well design choices were made to help foster their education in a space that they can take pride in.

NEOCON MATERIALS TENT Student Design Competition

32


Project Description junior year

spring 2017

This project was an IIDA student competition to create a Neocon Booth. The booth was being made the company “I like Design” as a way to display their products for Neocon 2017. I came up with the idea of having the entry be a fabric tent that could be constructed from the company’s actual product using collapsible poles. The inside of the tent was designed so that those entering would be able to doodle on the fabric. Once inside, occupants see that the walls are covered in peg boards that display product samples. This made the samples interactive and easy to assemble or disassemble. I enjoyed this project because it helped me become more detail-oriented. I had to think about creating an aesthetically exciting booth while also focusing on how everything would be delivered, put together and taken down. To complete this project, I used Sketchup, Sketchup Layout and PowerPoint.

CHARITABLE CHAIR Student Service Work

Project Description year

spring 2015 & 2016

brooke harper and christine niemi

Charitable Chair is an event that Weber State University holds annually in the spring. As part of this event, interior design students find chairs of “significant design� and help restore them in a way that is true to their time period. Once the chairs are restored an auction is held and the proceeds are given to a non-profit organization like the Boys and Girls Club. This project is a lot of work. That said, I love participating. The year I completed this project, I learned so many valuable lessons. I studied the time period of the ladder-back chair and the stories behind the Lincoln rocker. During this process I learned skills like stripping and staining wood. I learned about different techniques of upholstery. I learned how to stabilize joints. Most importantly, I learned how to work with community members in pursuit of a worthwhile goal.

I completed this project as part of a student competition for an existing building in Texas. The purpose of this space: multi-functionality. Individuals from the community could do things here like: rent space for events or lease office space. With that in mind, and taking inspiration from a train station, Social Station was created. The design included shipping containers from old trains to create private spaces like conference meeting rooms and a retail space. This project taught me design skills like how to make a space functional and flexible for different scenarios. To complete this project the following software was used: Revit, InDesign, Photoshop, and Lumion.

SOCIAL STATION: A CROSSROADS

FRONT ENTRANCE

Social Station is a building located at 603 Munger Avenue in Dallas Texas. Dallas was developed by the construction of major railroad lines and also has four major highways converging in the city. It represents a crossroads, a central meeting place, an intersection of two or more roads, and a crucial point where decisions are made. Retailers and customers can come to Social Station for their crossroads; to work, shop, and enjoy entertainment. This is the place for social retailing, where there is integration of both social, retail and high functioning co-working space that encourages adaptability, health, and well-being. The spaces are active and engaging with many sustainable design principles. There are plenty of windows to bring in daylight and have views of nature as well as ergonomics of the workers being met. It has plenty of storage for each worker to have a lockable drawer at their space for security. The color palette is a mustard yellow with a peacock blue mixed with the red brick walls to create a a fun, exciting, and comfortable atmosphere. The furniture is all movable to accomadate adaptability and to give the workers choices of where they want to work. The event space has tables and chairs that can be arranged in different layouts depending on the event that evening. There is also audio and visual equipment for presentations and is located close to the kitchen for catering purposes. All lighting is LED which is the most effective and efficient in reducing electrical costs. The floor and ceiling has natural exposed wood, which is original to the building. The shipping containers have been custom designed to fit the meeting spaces and retail areas and be assembled on site. The retailing spaces in the shipping container are designed to give the workers the ability to enter the back and set up their displays, then they can open the garage doors on the front when they are ready to sell their merchandise. The walls and shelving in the retailing spaces are sourced from Visual Magnetics, which allows each retailer to have their logo and signage be customized for their product. The co-office work spaces are flexible during the day, and at night they can transform into retail booths by allowing the workers to display their products on the counters. There are plenty of lounge, phone and conference rooms, to ensure all the needs of the tenants are met.

CEDARWOOD Senior Capstone Project

44


Project Description senior year

fall 2017 & spring 2018

This is one of my favorite projects. As I did research for this space, Cedarwood became very important to me. Over two semesters I studied about seniors and how social interaction improves their mental and physical health. Pushed by thought of my own grandparents, I learned how important it was that seniors have a community and friends to interact with. The design of Cedarwood, would help many of the issues the more experienced members of our community face by providing a place to gather and socialize. Cedarwood, in conjuction, with Volunteers of America provides a clinic, gym, restaurant, lounge space, and classes for all of the senior citizens within in the community to participate. Additionally, there are two levels of residential living for seniors wanting to live in a retirement community. This project, being over 40,000 square feet, felt a little ambitious on my part. Nonetheless, I am happy with the outcome. To complete his project I used Revit, Sketchup, Lumion, PowerPoint and InDesign.
