My passion for color, furniture, building, ﬂoor plans, & all things “design” started at a young age & have led me to pursue a future in interior design and architecture. During my time at Lewis & Clark Community College, I studied only architecture, but once I transfered to Southern Illinois University, I realized that I wanted to broaden my horizons from architecture and study what happened inside of the buildings. Having interest in both ﬁelds has allowed me to obtain my Associates degree in architecture, in May of 2018 I will graduate with a Bachelor’s in Interior Design, and I am now trying to further my knowledge by getting a Master’s in Architecture. While in college and studying two majors I am so passionate about, my creative skills have grown immensely, & each project has given me an opportunity to explore new ideas, broaden my knowledge on sustainability, and build design and computer skills.

OBJECTIVE The objective of this thesis project is to develop an understanding of commercial design through renovating a three-story, with two partial levels, 32,000 sf historic building located in St. Louis, into a commercial design of our choosing. The scope of this design includes a lobby, a theater , band rooms, dance studios, art studios, an art gallery, and a rooftop penthouse for users to enjoy.
CONCEPT SPLASH is designed to be a safe haven in the city of St. Louis, offering after-school programs for students aged 12-16. Art, music, and dance are offered as part of these enrichment programs. The interior supports the core functions and pays homage to the SPLASH branding. The colors provide an identifiable theme to build a community feel by dedicating specific finishes per floor. The overlap of the floor plates creates a three-story high atrium, allowing an open, airy feel through ample natural light.
SOLUTION With a full two floors, two partial floors, and a rooftop penthouse, the newly designed SPLASH building creates a fun, exhilarating atmosphere while creating a learning environment for students. Guests can learn to play an instrument, learn ballet, or just head to the rooftop penthouse to study or to do homework, where a tutor is available during after-school hours. Snacks and refreshments are always available at the small cafĂŠ located on the rooftop penthouse.

OBJECTIVE The goal of Steelcase’s NEXT Student Design Competition is to increase proficiency of planning and designing medium-sized commercial interiors. This project focuses on rethinking office space for the new economy and creating an environment that meets the needs of an interconnected workplace.
CONCEPT The word acculturation is defined as “cultural modification of an individual group, or people by adapting to or borrowing traits from another culture.” Because acculturation defines the process of cultural variations and psychological transitions that result from the juxtaposing between cultures, the positive effects of acculturation on an architectural firm must be captured and dispersed for mutual benefit. In order to accomplish this task, the design process for NEXT Los Angeles, focused on incorporating characteristics of the South Park district, as well as other surrounding districts.
SOLUTION At the group level acculturation often results in changes to culture, customs and social institutions Within a studio, the changes can be both positive and long lasting due to the constant collaboration of conceptual design and group think processes. At the individual level, differences in the way people acculturate have been shown to be associated with changes in daily behavior and numerous measures of psychological and physical well-being. Employee well-being is also enriched by the use of treadmill workstations and height-adjustable, ergonomic workstations which allow employees to make movement a part of their workday. Because this design focuses on employee’s well-being in order to maximize creativity, it will enhance innovation, enrich the work experience, & improve employee health & happiness.
The floor plan for NEXT reflects the project’s goal of designing an interconnected workspace that promotes creativity, collaboration, and connection while incorporating local, Los Angles culture. An open-office creates more opportunity for employee engagement and productivity. Throughout the space is a variety of niches for small, informal connections while the Think Tank is an ideal spot for informal collaborations. The arrangement of wall partitions and ceiling heights draws employees through the space into the large, daylight-filled WorkCafe. RENDERED FLOOR PLAN

An open office area is designed to increase employee engagement and productivity as well as promoting the employee’s physical and cognitive well-being. The open office plan allows for plentiful natural daylighting with 16’ floor to ceiling exterior glazing, as well as small work areas with marker boards and pin-up spaces to help increase creativity. Steelcase Sit-to-Walkstation desks and Steelcase Series 7 Sit & Stand height adjustable desks encourage employees of NEXT to change up their normal routine of sitting throughout the entire work day.
INDIVIDUAL PROJECT | ID 491 | FALL 2016 SOFTWARE: Revit, SketchUp, Photoshop
OBJECTIVE The objective of this project was to gain an understanding of healthcare on a smaller scale by redesigning a 4,033 square foot obstetrics and gynecological clinic located in an existing structure. Research into the specifications and requirements of healthcare clinics and features that make patients comfortable and contribute to their wellbeing is to be conducted. The space plan is to include a waiting room, an ultrasound room, counseling spaces, offices, and a room for donations.
CONCEPT Pregnancy Matters is an obstetrics and gynecological clinic that provides medical services and support for low-income women who are pregnant, helping them make healthy life decisions in regards to their bodies and relationships. The distinctive design creates a warm, inviting, and safe environment for patients, their families, and the healthcare professionals simultaneously, while helping to improve the healthcare delivery process.
SOLUTION The floor plan is designed to create a continuous loop between public and private spaces, using different flooring materials to create subconscious barriers between the two spaces. The calming color scheme is applied throughout the project, with complimentary furnishings and art work, which combine to convey a feeling of comfort, warmth, and good health to women who visit the clinic. Group and individual counseling spaces are utilized to create safe spaces to speak with a counselor or for new and expecting mothers to attend workshops within the clinic. A large donation room with shelves lining the walls allows for a space to store donated goods, such as clothing & diapers for the families in need. The plan for Pregnancy Matters is designed to provide comfort, privacy, & confidentiality for its patients.

St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment
GROUP PROJECT | ARC 451 | FALL 2017 SOFTWARE: AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Photoshop, InDesign, Lumion
OBJECTIVE The objective of the St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment is to gain a better understanding of urban design and planning. The Redevelopment Area’s strategic location in the City’s central corridor offers significant opportunities to foster new development that can build on the healthy core of existing institutional and commercial development. Major portions of the Redevelopment Area that are targeted for redevelopment are currently occupied by vacant land or vacant buildings and are in need of redevelopment in order to enhance economic viability of the City & region.
CONCEPT The St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment was designed to provide opportunities for an economically and culturally diverse climate by means of a resurrected, revitalized and contemporary community of avant-garde dwellings enhanced by large, open green spaces maintained with xeriscaping to minimize impact on natural resources and physical labor. Through the creation of well illuminated walkable paths, nodes and desirable destinations with sustainable potentials, the goal of increased residency and drawing of tourists to the region can be accomplished.
SOLUTION The existing buildings in the Redevelopment Area, as well as St. Louis, consists primarily of brick façades, so this new area combines contemporary materials, colors, & design to break from the familiar look that the City offers. This area desperately lacked green space, & with sustainability being a primary design principle, ample green space and landscaping was added to create an enhanced community that offers plentiful land, residencies--apartment buildings and detached housing--and local shops for patrons.
The St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment Area is located to the south of Saint Louis University’s North Campus and Grand Center in the important and rapidly growing central corridor of the City of St. Louis. The Redevelopment Area encompasses approximately 395 acres and nearly 324 acres excluding public rights-of-way. The redevelopment Area generally extends from 39th Street, Spring Avenue, and Vandeventer Avenue on the west to Compton Avenue on the east, and from Laclede Avenue and I-64 on the north to Park Avenue and I-44 on the south.

OBJECTIVE The objective of the EZ flagship store is to design a retail space for the SIU Fashion Design & Merchandise student team EZ located in an existing building located in the SoHo area of New York City. This 5,796 square foot store must reflect the style of EZ’s style and merchandise through materials, location, & details such as lighting fixtures, garment racks and tables, and a custom cash wrap.
CONCEPT EZ’s vision “is to create an inspiring look for women so they feel comfortable while on the go, yet stylish and fashionable. We believe that quality & sustainability is important to our business & our goal is to create appealing merchandise in a fast and timely manner so our customer feels a connection with the unique style we have to offer.” As visitors move through the store, they will experience an atmosphere similar to those of the city, including a rough, contemporary feel. A few key aspects that were crucial to the making of this design were the stairs, the built-in adjustable hanging garment fixtures and the cash wrap.
SOLUTION EZ is a revolutionary retail store looking to expand their brand nationally and globally featuring a unique, fashionable style focusing on clothing, shoes, & accessories. EZ recognizes the individuality of its clients and sells products that will help them accentuate their unique style needs.

ROOM FINISH SCHEDULE
The physical model required for this capstone thesis project was a section of the building, which is indicated on the ﬂoor plans located in the SPLASH project spreads earlier in this portfolio. The model is made of chipboard, and laster cut to create a more precise and accurately representative physical model. The section cuts through the storage portion of the basement where the hydraulic orchestra pit is located, the theater, the dance studios, art studios, and the rooftop penthouse.
“...providing the community with the means of self expression through art, music, and dance.”
One of the primary focuses of this model was to show the vertical circulation, as well as the large open atrium space, and the existing structure that includes eight 20”x20” total (four shown in model) columns and trusses.
A physical “board” of the project’s custom designed logo was also required for part of this capstone thesis project. The idea behind SPLASH was to create a space for teens and preteens, so I chose to create a logo that was colorful and fun, in hopes to draw in users for this space, and to create interest and curiosity for what SPLASH is all about. For this physical board, the frame is made of a 2”x4” painted black, and the rest of the board is made completely of plexiglass. These pieces were carefully designed and then laser cut, with the SPLASH title cut out of some of the larger pieces. One thing to note is that this board is three-dimensional, so the colorful pieces overlap one another, and the white plexiglass back is inset to allow ample space for the colored pieces to stick out. The mission statement “...providing the community with a means of self expression through art, music, and dance.” is also located at the bottom right-hand corner.
PREGNANCY MATTERS ID 491 | FALL 2016
The Pregnancy Matters project required a physical model of a custom reception desk. For this design, a simple, modern look was implemented, with a focus on horizontal planes to create an elongated feel to the custom piece. The dimensions of the piece are 14’-6” in length, counter height stands at 2’-5”, and the tallest height being 3’-1” with a 2” toe-kick, and 1” vertical indentation for LED strip lighting. The materials include a walnut veneer on the tallest half, and a white laminate for the countertop, sides, and toe-kick (see elevation on project spread).
VINE COLUMN ARC 252 | FALL 2014
The vine column project was a design charrette in the sophomore level studio class, which allowed 48 hours to complete a design and a model to represent the concept of the project. Of the eighteen projects, only three were chosen to be built and displayed around the campus of Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey, IL. The concept behind my design was to create a large structure that changes shape from every angle that it is viewed from. The dimensions of the column are 12’ in height, and 10’-6” in diameter (measured at the top).
THE BERLIN CHAIR ID 351 | FALL 2015
The Berlin Chair was designed by Dutch designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld for an exhibition room of the Berlin Art Exhibition in 1923. The chair consists of four wide boards and three narrow strips, which are perpendicular to each other and both the frame and the support surfaces are combined. For this project, the class was instructed to recreate the Berlin Chair by keeping the original shape and structure, but adding a twist with colors, fabrics, etc. The concept behind my design took a more literal approach with the colors of the German ďŹ‚ag; however, the idea was to be able to see each of the four colors from any elevation.
FALLINGWATER TABLE ID 351 | FALL 2015
This table was conceptualized from the word “organic”, which I related back to Frank Lloyd Wright’s idea of organic architecture which implemented horizontal planes, and natural materials such as wood and stone. The design consists of a horizontal table top cantilevered over a large, stone base. The table itself is completely made of wood, with the base laser cut into a stone texture, and marker rendered with the cool gray colors 1, 3, 5, and 7. “Organic” -of, relating to, or derived from living matter -denoting a relationship between elements of something such that they ﬁt together harmoniously as necessary of a whole
“Organic Architecture” -a philosophy of architecture which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world through design approaches so sympathetic and well integrated with its site that buildings, furnishings, and surroundings become part of a uniﬁed, interrelated composition.
PHOTOGRAPHY “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about ﬁnding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” -Elliott Erwitt

COLOR THEORY Interior Design History is the study of furniture styles, ornament, designers, and accessories associated with period interiors from the early Egyptian period through the year 1850. The focus is on interior elements (layout, ďŹ nishes, color, furnishings, artwork, etc) and how the peoples of each civilization/culture utilized these elements in the design of their interior environments.
This project focused on the Biedermeier art period between 1815 and 1848 during which the middle class grew and arts appealed to common sensibilities. The project consisted of a blank image that had to be rendered with the three pairs of complimentary colors.
