GATE CITY STATION

PROJECT DETAILS

The station was conceived as a joining of campus and neighborhood contexts. To emphasize this relationship, the concept of a Human Vertebral Column took precedent in the design.

Fourth Year, Spring 2014 Location: Greensboro, NC Type: Transportation

The spine, composed of three anatomical sections, stretches down the midline of the body, supporting the body's weight, providing flexibility and protecting the spinal cord. Similarly, each programmed space stands unique in their individual purpose as they connect seamlessly to serve their inhabitants. This introduces dynamic relationships that further amplify the unification of space and the roles they play.

GATE CITY STATION

PROJECT DETAILS

Furthermore, the design evolved into a statement of biophilic standards—providing high levels of daylighting, green roofs, living walls, addressing both spaciousness and refuge in the building design, carefully planned sightlines, and most prominent, creating a sense of ordered complexity.

PIEDMONT RAIL CAR

PROJECT DETAILS

The Piedmont train travels through Greensboro on a daily schedule and offers mass transit access that connects Greensboro to other major cities as close as Charlotte, NC and as far away as New York City and New Orleans.

Fourth Year, Spring 2014 Location: Greensboro, NC Type: Transportation

This passenger coach rail car provides its users comfortable and safe travel to their ultimate destination. Continuing with the Vertebral Column concept, the central aisle way was widened, allowing suitability for those with diverse abilities and allowing for greater circulation patterns. Broadening entry and exit points further cater to the ease of boarding for all inhabitants.

F.ORM RESTAURANT + BAR

PROJECT DETAILS

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, transforming an uncut piece of paper into a finished figure through folding and sculpting techniques. Upon unfolding these paper figures, one can explore the shapes and structures created from creases in the paper.

Second Year, Spring 2012 Location: Greensboro, NC Type: Hospitality

In this exploration, three main categories emerge: linear, planar, and three-dimensional forms. Each category is identified by its own unique qualities but still directly compliments the other. These complex forms are deconstructed and unfolded to seemingly simple patterns.

USC CHILDREN'S LAW CENTER, WHALEY HOUSE OTTO ZENKE STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION

DETAILS

The concept of the Whaley House Renovation is drawn from the Horseshoe on USC's campus—a series of 11 historic buildings around which the main campus surrounds today. Surviving fires, earthquakes and the Civil War, this notable area provides an overarching theme in the design, mirroring the long-lasting spirit of the Horseshoe.

Fourth Year, Fall 2013 Location: Columbia, SC Type: Historical Renovation

To expand further, a physical horseshoe is designed to protect a horse's hoof from everyday wear. This sense of protection is translated via lighting design and materials and furnishings. Strong forms, serene tones and a solid foundation encapsulate that which The Children's Law Center aims to accomplish—establishing a stable wellbeing to those who need it most.

USC CHILDREN'S LAW CENTER, WHALEY HOUSE FURNITURE AND FINISHES

DETAILS

Bridging historical and modern furniture pieces best unites the history of Whaley House and the modern methods of the training facility. Dark floor finishes "ground" the space, in essence creating a stable foundation, just as the Law Center provides its community. Great care is taken in sustainable and durable materials, given the traffic on a yearly basis.

2013 SOLAR DECATHLON CANOPY HOUSE

DETAILS

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro partnered with Team Tidewater Virginia, a group comprised of architecture, engineering, and communications students from Hampton University and engineering students from Old Dominion University. UNCG IARc students enrich the concept of Canopy House by offering expertise and effort in given specialties.

Third Year, Fall 2012 Location: Hampton, VA Type: Residential

Just as the canopy of a tree is a protective, sunlight-filled haven, the Canopy House is a safe, universally designed, solar-powered dwelling. The Canopy House's smart home technology allows its owners to live an independent lifestyle and age in place. Drawing from the principles of Universal Design, the Canopy House strives to make sustainable living accessible to all people, regardless of physical impairments and limitations.

BARTLETT YANCEY HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE WING RENOVATION

DETAILS

The Science Wing Renovation of Bartlett Yancey High School is driven by the Ecosystem, a multifaceted environment requiring flexibility and a capacity to adapt to changes, acting as one functional unit.

Fourth Year, Fall 2013 Location: Yanceyville, NC Type: Institutional

On the forefront of key design considerations is flexibility, encompassing the interaction between forecasted changes in teacher's rooms, strong distinctions between teaching styles, and shared spaces with the entirety of the school. The basic underlying principles are a high-quality organization, and a strong relationship with the classroom and technology.

ENDANGERED SPECIES CHOCOLATE BRAND IDENTITY

DETAILS

Endangered Species Chocolate was born out of a desire to make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species disappearing from Earth. They set out to source natural, ethically traded chocolate as a carrier for an environmental message while generating funds for conservation efforts worldwide.

Industrial Design Course Abroad Type: Branding Photoshop Illustrator InDesign

The goal was to energize the brand image to appeal to the appropriate consumer audience. The design contributes to minimal waste, aiding in sustainability efforts. Pre- + postconsumer recyclability of packaging is an important concern as well.

INTRODUCTION Paige Hohlt is an interdisciplinary designer, craftswoman, researcher and investigator. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, having obtained a BFA in Interior Architecture. Much of her work is inspired by the fundamentals of design, driven by the Bauhaus Movement and Scandinavian functionalism. Her aesthetic focuses towards refined materiality, simple beauty and the convergence of shape and grace. In her free time, she focuses on her own personal growth; travel, meeting friends-shehasn't-met-yet, becoming a better version of herself, brainstorming and trying to tackle an unbearably long list she has stashed in her sketchbook, titled "Things to Learn."
