Iâ€™m Sarah Click, and this is my portfolio displaying 4 years of coursework in Interior Design. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia where I first developed a love for art, design and architecture in the world around me. In 2014, I went off to the University of Georgia to pursue a degree in Interior Design because I wanted to create art that was a functional part of every day life. My personal mission as a designer is to create spaces that make the lives of others more functional, enjoyable and inspiring. I believe that humans, as visual creatures, crave beauty. I think good design is essential to human happiness, productivity and connection. It is, to me, the most essential art form, because it is what we live our lives in every single day.

pryor street market design intent
Pryor Street Market is a design for the renovation of an abandoned building in downtown atlanta- 210 pryor street. Atlantaâ€™s downtown buildings have slowly become abandoned in recent years, with real estate developments focused in midtown and buckhead. the purpose of my project is to bring life back into atlantaâ€™s downtown by adding retail, dining andapartment loft spaces that benefit the surrounding community by creating new interest, jobs and living options. my question focuses on how urban renewal can benefit a community, and the role that design plays within that. by utilizing an abandoned building, iâ€™m bringing in new jobs and people while respecting those who already live and work here. pryor street market features two floors of dining and retail space, two floors of apartments and a rooftop lounge. my design cuts and outdoor alleyway through the existing building, creating several hundred feet of added retail space and natural light. the alleyway features multiple small retail spaces, which encourages small business owners to open shop in a low-rent, low square footage unit. the larger retail spaces focus on businesses that would benefit the community as a whole, such as a market with healthy groceries, a fitness studio and a restaurant.

i ta l i a n w i n e r y cortona, italy design intent: Bottiglia is the design for a wine education center, based in a building on Via Nazionale
in Cortona, Italy. For our concept we wanted to preserve as much of the original Italian architecture as possible while still making it a fun and contemporary space. The high vaulted ceilings and traditional Italian columns inspired the shape of my chunky wooden furniture piece. The wine racks, which line the walls of the space, are inspired by Italian moulding. The space moves from a casual wine tasting area into an open courtyard with a bar, balcony and lounge space. The open kitchen on the left is designed for a casual hors dâ€™oeuvres tasting area.

next office design intent: The Next Office is an Architecture Firm located in Southern California. For my
design, I wanted to create a space that was light and clean. The space we were given had an abundance of windows and high cielings, so I wanted my design to take advantage of all of the natural light. Research shows that natural light in the workplace improves sleep patterns, productivity, creativity, mood and overall health, so I created a floorplan that gave nearly every space access to natural light. I chose materials that embodied this light and open feeling. My floor plan is filled with curves, angles and straight edges. This is meant to mimic the curves and edges of the design process. An architectâ€™s plans change multiple times throughout the evolution of a design, which is something that I wanted to mimic in this plan. Overall, my goal was to create a space that allowed for maximum productivity and creativity in the architects and employees that work here.
