Awaken Outpatient Center 5

Awaken Outpatient Center The Awaken Outpatient Center This project was done in collaboration with Kendra Stukey and Beatriz Roman. PROBLEM: A wellness center was needed in the Plano subdivision of Dallas, Texas to accomodate therapeutic help for people struggling with substance addiction and nutritional disorders. SOLUTION: This support facility was made up of three buildings: one which supported those struggling with addiction, one which supported those with nutritional problems, and a central clinic which tended to the medical needs of both sectors. Each building incorporated a recreational or hospitality aspect in order for the users to have another use for the facility besides just therapy and focusing on the negative parts of their lives. In each of the therapy focused buildings, there are small gyms, a demonstrational kitchen for the nutrion building, a game room for the addiction building, and other spaces for group activity. In the central clinical building, there is a restaurant on the first floor to welcome the users into the space with clean, healthy food. The second floor is made up of exam rooms, and the third floor houses the administration of the facility and an auditorium to accomodate guest speakers. CONCEPT STATEMENT: Our concept statement stemmed from the word “awaken”. A-wak-en (verb) / A-wak-en-ing (noun) Making someone aware of (something) for the first time The act or moment of becoming suddenly aware of something Like the rising sun, we hope for our facility to energize our patients and employees, to promote a healthy and renewing environment. Through the use of organic lines and simple geometries, we will create spaces that are invigorating and exciting, and that encourage individual learning and growth. LOGO:

Junction Campus


Texas Tech: Junction PROBLEM: The Texas Tech University Center in Junction, Texas was in desperate need of a remodel. Our class went to Junction for a weekend to research and interview the program director of the campus. We toured each building, learning that the structures were constructed in 1953 and were in need of an update. SOLUTION: As a class, we developed a new site plan for the center which created better wayďŹ nding. The site plan was made up of nine buildings, including a Welcome Center/Museum, a Dining Hall, a Hotel, Graduate Housing, an Outdoor Patio, a Lab and Classroom Center (not all plans showed). CONCEPT STATEMENT: The concept for this project is a Modern Farmhouse. With its versatility of operations and growth through nature, the Texas Tech University Center at Junction should have an industrial but cultivating environment provided by a modern farmhouse.

In collaboration with the rest of the class, the site plan for the Junction Campus was reconfigured to accomodate for more cohesive movement throughout the center. The Welcome Center and Museum is at the entry of the campus, followed by the Hotel, the Graduate Housing, the Dining Hall, the Hotel, the Lab and Classroom, and finally the Outdoor Patio. MATERIALS: The materials used for this project remained as natural and as sustainable as possible. Since the project involved a univeristy, I wanted to be sure that the materials would be affordable and coincide with any budget given. In addition, the Junction Center at Texas Tech revolves around connecting with nature through Natural Resource Management. I wanted to lean toward a southwestern farmhouse design which incorporates the wood and concrete, along with the bright, natural hues found in the textiles.

Next: Turnstone Project


Next: A Coworking Space The Next: Turnstone Steelcase Competition PROBLEM: The Steelcase furniture manufacturing compnay held a competition for interior design college students to create a co-working space in Atlanta Georgia using an existing building. SOLUTION: CONCEPT STATEMENT: The concept of weaving components to create a exible but strong material encourages and promotes workers to connect in one space with many ideas to solve one sole problem. Just like a piece of fabric that is woven, each thread is important and plays a role in the design. The Turnstone company relies on young entrepreneurs to come together and weave something greater. The depiction of the weaving of ideas, people, and design will be shown through the ceilings, walls, logo, and furniture. Natural hues with some bright pops of color will be utilized in order to perceive the feeling of naturally woven objects as well as bright textiles which depict new and young ideas. There are several patterns and materials in which one could create something with textiles, and so this goes to show how there can be several solutions to one problem coming from a group of people.

The bright hues in the textiles and natural wood materials were used to create an energetic working environment for all who used this co-working space. The change in flooring provides wayfinding throughout the space and divides the different type of spaces offered in the building. The ideation space is provided with a sticky note wall for coworkers to brainstorm together about anything pertaining to their business. Each layer of sticky notes adds new color to create an interesting feature on the wall once people start tearing the notes off, as seen in the rendering of the Ideation space. The In Between spaces and the Open Office keep the coworking space casual so that the users feel interconnected and have the ability to work in a lounge environment or to sit in a chair at a desk if their type of work requires more concentration.
