[THESIS II]

CONCEPT STATEMENT Leap of Faith wants to have a place where women and children can call home. We want them to come into this building and experience the love of Christ. Our chapel in Leap of Faith is open to anyone that would like to come and worship and experience a life changing message. Daycare will be provided so children will have a place to learn and grow. Every child will get counseling, so we can better understand the child and it is our duty as a shelter to provide healing and love into these children’s lives. After the women are ready to get out to live life independently, we want them to know we are always here for them and that they are ready for what is ahead for them. No one can stop them from reaching their goals and their ambitions. The moment you enter the Leap of Faith facility, you will be able to experience the atmosphere to very peaceful and calm. A waterfall display will be featured near the reception desk leading the mothers and children to the right direction for more information. The front end of the facility will have the lounge area with the fireplace to add warmth to the place along with the children activities to keep the children occupied during the wait. Upon entering the second and the third part of the Leap of Faith facility, it will become a little bit more restricted for the public to enter. Everything is available to the Leap of Faith mothers from: the chapel, daycare, counseling, classes to get better educated on being independent, and mentoring for those that have graduated from Leap of Faith. In the third section of the facility it is very much restricted and very private for the safe of the mothers and the children. This is where all the bedrooms, cafeteria, showers, and the lobby/media area will be located. Outside of the facility consists of a garden, vegetable garden and the playground for the kids. Leap of Faith is very proud to offer a home away from home to these wonderful women and children. The color palette for Leap of Faith is very cool, calm and peaceful. The space is going to have a lounge/beach house atmosphere. The accented split complimentary colors within the space consist of blue violet, blue, blue green with a complimentary accent color of pale orange. Neutral colors will be beige, white and hints of metallic silver neutralizing the space bringing warmth and a polished look. Inspirational/empowering art pieces will be incorporated within the space providing additional character and interest to the space. Everything will work cohesively making Leap of Faith a place you can call home. Leap of Faith is going to be energy efficient with its water, lighting, insulation and much more. Leap of Faith wants to make a positive footprint on being sustainable within its design by following the LEED credits. ADA accessibility considerations will be made for anyone that enters Leap of Faith.

Shaadi Set

CONCEPT STATEMENT

The first three pieces of the collection is the Shaadi Set. The sofa and the chairs are not only luxurious but are very comfortable. This set features English furniture influences, showcasing Queen Anne’s padded feet and a tufted back. This specific set was influenced by Pakistan’s own wedding furniture sets. Usually the bride and the groom sit in the middle while family and guests sit on the side chairs to congratulate the couple.

Every design collection is unique and perfect in its own way.

This collection is a fusion of Pakistan and Laos cultures blended together. Each item in this Merge collection has been inspired by these two Asian countries through their clothing, weddings, and monumental buildings. The clothing colors are very bright and enhanced with beautiful gold embroideries. The wedding decor is very different but yet these two cultures bring elegance into a room with beautiful lighting and spectacular furniture decor. The buildings maybe very different in shape and form, but the famous architecture pieces make big statements. With mindful considerations the Merge collection is luxurious and comfortable. Splashes of colors are incorporated in this Merge collection perfectly; bringing harmony and balance within the space.

Crescent Moon Side Table Crescent Moon side tables expose the wonderful rich wood tones and colors. Laos is known for its carved wood craftsmanship. It was very important to incorporate this Crescent Moon side table with the Shaadi set.

Pha That Luang Lantern

Pha That Luang is a popular stupa in Laos. This lantern has many of the same features as the stupa: axis mundi, harmika and the anda. The material is paper and has gold banding around each section creating a border. This is a simple but yet luxurious item to accessorize at home.


Badshahi Sheesa Badshahi Sheesha is influenced by the Badshahi Mosque from Lahore, Pakistan. The cusped arches and the gold in this piece imitate the entrance of Badshahi

Merge Collection This is the overall design of the Merge collection. This room is very harmonious and full of balance.

THE COHEN RESIDENCE

CONCEPT STATEMENT

Brian and Sarah Cohen are newlyweds and they have moved to Chicago from the suburbs and have bought a loft close to both of their jobs. The Cohen’s have a beautiful view to the city of Chicago. The loft allows plenty of sunlight within the interior of the space. The bricks give an industrial look that Sarah had been looking for with an exposed ceiling. The style of this loft is eclectic with a mixer of modern French Country and modern Art Deco. The colors of within the space cohesively work well together. Majority of the colors are neutrals with a splash of fuchsia pink. It’s a little bit of both masculine and feminine. The Cohen’ s wanted to be very environmentally conscious, with that in mind; all appliances are energy efficient, low VOC paints, and energy efficient lighting has been applied.

In this class we were introduced to 3DS Max. This Chicago loft was imported from AutoCAD 2012 as a 3D object. The learning process was challenging, but we were able to apply skills which allowed us to add materials, make groups, import, add lighting and render images. 3DS Max consists of many files which are called pathways. These certain pathways hold images of the materials, renderings of animations, and renderings of pictures.


This view to the kitchen from the living room portrays a spacious and a comfortable home for Brian and Sarah. There is plenty of space for Sarah to prep and cook in this modern French Country kitchen. The appliances are energy efficient and stainless steel fitting the young couples needs and wants. Energy efficient under cabinet lighting is showcased for a luminous and a clean look. The dining table is right next to the kitchen which allows the guests to interact with the Cohen’ s as they prepare meals for get togethers.

The bedroom is very modern and trendy for the young couple. The frame above the headboard emphasizes the bed as a focal point making it very dramatic. On the left, is a walk in closet that is spacious enough for both Brian and Sarah.

[INTERNSHIP- THE KOHLER STORE]

AutoCAD drawing from Kohler project


NETWORKING

In Kohler I have allowed myself to be open minded and optimistic about meeting new people. Many of the designers are very welcoming, understanding, and caring. I have gained great relationships through each and every one of them. They are willing to teach me things that I might have questions about. I know I can have a long lasting networking connection with the employees of Kohler.

BUSINESS

Within the Kohler business I was able to learn customer service is the most important thing. Our customers are important and we need to fulfill their wants and needs. As an intern, I was able to experience what it is like to meet deadlines with AutoCAD drawings and hand renderings. Time is very important and very valuable. I had the opportunity to shadow one of the designers and see how she interacted with the customers. It was very informative with all the details she had to offer.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Not only did I have the privilege to shadow one of the designers, but I was able to answer phone calls and help the customers if they had a question that I could help them with; or I was able to simply just take a message for them and give the message to the appropriate designer.

MERCHANDISE

During the time Kohler was having inventory taken throughout the store, I was able to organize and take inventory on wood samples, tiles, mosaics and valves.

WINGS PEDIATRICS CONCEPT STATEMENT The inspiration for Wings Pediatrics is based on the nature element of butterflies.

Butterflies are the perfect example of what each child is like. Each child is colorful, beautiful and unique in their own ways. Each child that enters Wings Pediatrics office is going to be cared for by the best nurses and doctors. The character of the space is not to make it feel like a healthcare space, but instead, Wings Pediatrics wants to provide a fun and colorful atmosphere for the children and their families. As you enter Wings Pediatrics, you would pass by the waiting and the receptionist area on the left side. On your right is the copy, storage room and a bathroom. As you pass through the door way the receptionist work area, nurses station and recycling area would be surrounding you. As you make a right, on the left side are the doctor’ s offices and the right are the exam rooms. As you walk through the hallway, the lab room is visible straight ahead and as you make a turn to your right, maintenance room is on the right side and few more exam rooms are near the lab room. Then there is one more right turn, on the left side is the break room and the conference room; to your right is another bathroom and a shot room, then passed the doorway your back at the entrance. Wings Pediatrics is very modern with modern/contemporary furniture located throughout the building. The walls are white, but that is to showcase the color palate of the split complementary colors that are chosen for the space. The color palate is: orange (tangerine), green, and little splashes of blue. The split complementary colors are in the resins used throughout the space, designed by 3 Form. This pediatrics office was not only the showcase the beauty, but also to provide the best sustainable design. The resins that are used throughout the building is recycled material, that is a great way of reusing items that will not be going into the landfills. The appliances are energy starred, which is a much better way of living green. The paint used in Wings Pediatrics is by Benjiman Moore’s eco-friendly paint called Nautra (breath easy) paint. This paint contains low-VOCs. Benjiman Moore is exceeding beyond the strictest industry standards and offering the best green promise. Wings Pediatrics is surely the best place for any child to feel comfortable. Not only is Wings Pediatrics providing the best care, but it is also providing a great role model in sustainable design.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design We were introduced to LEED or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, which allowed us to think differently on how we can make a sustainable design functional and aesthetically pleasing. Buildings can qualify for 4 levels of certification: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. For our pediatricians office we had the opportunity to work towards a Silver certification. This healthcare office is a working model for doctors as well as to educate kids on healthy and sustainable living and green design.

With LEED certification towards Silver, our strategies were aimed towards achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
