the honey home How can the discipline of interior design improve the practice of urban beekeeping?
The Honey Home is a multi-faceted concept home centered around the art and practice of urban beekeeping. The Honey Home, located in downtown Lincoln Nebraska, houses two resident beekeepers. Their jobs include, maintaining 110 beehives located on the rooftop above, as well as extracting and packaging honey. The Honey Home is an innovative approach to beekeeping, not only because its location within the city, but also because it brings forward the technique of indoor wintering. An interesting challenge of the project was blending the work/life experience with two individuals. The Honey Home aims to create a more efficient beekeeping process, while also accommodating the personal lives of the two resident beekeepers. The Capstone allowed students complete freedom to choose a concept, as well as the building and scale to execute that concept.

what is indoor wintering Through research I came across the relatively new technique of Indoor wintering. Indoor wintering is the process of placing bees and their hives in a controlled interior environment during the winter months, allowing them to hibernate undisturbed. This capstone has the potential to set the standard of how the uncommon practice of indoor wintering should be correctly done.
essential elements of indoor wintering (1) shelves to store beehives vents to maintain C02 levels between 1000 and 2000 ppm vents to regulate temperature between 45 and 55 degrees fahrenheit fans to mix air

the problem indoor wintering addresses (2) The problem: 31 percent of bees are dying throughout the winter months nationwide. From the 2017-2018 winter.
For bees to be able to fully replenish their colonies in the spring less than 21% can die.
The solution: Interior design can help save this 10% through the technique of indoor wintering.

a new retail experience within a rural barn
the antony barn combining retail and maker spaces to create a new retail experience
The Antony Barn is a retail space that sells one item, the Antony Chair. The Antony Barn contains two separate volumes, a volume where the making of the Antony Chair takes place, and a volume where the shopping and of the Antony Chair takes place. The Antony Chairs are displayed in a non-traditional way to expose interesting details of the chair. The Antony Barn aims to get customers into space in hopes that they will leave with not only a new Antony Chair, but also with a new found appreciation of the aesthetic and construction details of the Antony Chair.
The project allowed students to choose a concept that related to the creative class. Students were given a selected options of building typologies by the instructor.

â€œBemis Sound Stoolâ€? modular furniture built from 2 inch thick insulation foam, coated in truck bed liner
FACt.16 â€œThe question is not, Is it true? But, does it work?â€?
FACT is a design/build based studio at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. The purpose of project 16 was to design and build a concert venue into the basement of the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha Nebraska. The concert venue, located solely within the interior of the facility, aims to give experimental musicians a platform to share their music. FACT.16 worked in collaboration with Actual Architecture, as well as with independent contractor Sean Ward. Students split up individually or into groups to work on specific areas of the project. The areas in which I focused on were the designing and building of furniture on a large scale and a build drawing of FLOCK installation. Fall 2018 University of Nebraska Lincoln Instructor: Jeff Day

The Bemis Sound Stool began with the idea to build furniture from insulation foam at the beginning of the fall semester. The design was developed along side the process of building the furniture piece. The Bemis Sound Stool design and building process was finalized at the end of the fall semester, manifesting itself in one Sound Stool. After the semesterâ€™s completion I continued the project as a paid contractor and began to built 50 Bemis Sound Stools for the space. Currently the 50 Sound Stools are built and will be coated in Truck Bed Liner, once a color is selected by the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. The cost of the Sound Stool is approximately $110 a piece depending on color.

My Role in Design firstname.lastname@example.org 402-853-4409 Vail Colorado
I enjoy being a designer because there are so many areas in which to explore in the field, whether it be material studies, furniture design, or design/build projects, I know that there will always be a new and interesting area of design I have yet to discover. I believe in hard work and rigorous pursuit, however I do not believe in the myth of the tortured artist. I feel I play the game the best when I am at my happiest. I am most creative and productive when I am well rested and feeling healthy. When it is all said and done I hope to be able to look back say I was able to accomplish these three things in my career, 1. Push forward environmental design 2. Create designs that inspire the average person to become a designer 3. Add to a healthier design culture
