RICHMOND PET CENTER Greater Richmond Area The Interior I have implemented the concept of explosion in the Interior of this pet shelter. I focused on using different materials and forms to form the design of the space and ultimately creating an interaction between people and the pets that live in the shelter. The numerous cubic and rectangular forms are created as parts of the explosion concept, which can be used for different purposes.

OFFICE SPACE DESIGN Trend Watching.com The solid and void The project started with an idea to show the relationship between the solid and void. The reception desk (right) is custom furniture that can represent my idea of how the solid and void can work together to create a more interesting form and still have its function.

OFFICE SPACE DESIGN Trend Watching.com The Interior As the concept “solid and void“ develops into the reception desk, it starts to move into the space as well. As people walk in to the working area, they can see the ceiling acting as a invisible space divider. The desk in the CEO’s office also reflects the reception desk in the front.
