APPLE STORE in Capitol Hill, Seattle After choosing the Apple store as the business selection, my consideration on future of the Apple products reached a fact that only 6.9% in the computer user is Mac user; consequently, having the Apple product(s) make(s) them unique. But if the Apple maintains its popularity, one day 50% of computer user will be using the Apple and the products will no longer make them unique. In future, we will see the Apple products more often in our lives. To respond the demands, the future Apple store will be selling “lifestyle in which the products are embedded.” The assumption led me to design a series of the showrooms that represents people’s primary lives; private and work.
Addition to the lifestyle showroom, the personalizable products will also be a key for next generation of the Apple products. As iPhone has been popular, thousands of accessories are available to individualize the products. The Capitol Hill store will be introducing a personalizing product design service,

Simplicity in the 1st oor Diversity in the 2nd oor When the customer walks in the ground oor, they can immediately know that itâ€™s an Apple store by the logo, simple and consistent space design. The Appleâ€™s current branding has not yet introduced diverse design which they will be in near future. The new design always needs an extra caution when presenting to the public; because new design may not be recognizable by the public. Therefore, the 1st oor rather looks similar to the typical Apple store design to communicate that this is an apple store. Once people come in, the new store design can be easily revealed to the people who already know that they are at an Apple store.
an Apple store with the extra touches. The Capitol Hill Apple store maintains the current store design aesthetic while incorporating some new features such as the seating space, the newarrival show space, and the creative space. The seating area table is designed to replace a typical coﬀee table with stack of magazines on with the simple reading device embedded. seating area table design
The creative space’s desk has a wide and deep countertop that it is meant to hold a pair of keyboards and mice for both customer and staﬀ sides for easy access to the design content.

assembly type occupancy. The most of the installed furniture are either recycled or aquired from the local habitat shop to decrease the newly acquired furniture. In order to achieve the sustainable goal, using recycled furniture and re--nished them.

DANCE CLUB GIVES APPLAUSE TO A NEW-AGE CULTUREâ€?
When we worked on the interior design, it was important to realize how the current trend in Malaysia has been. Because the clientâ€™s target customers are rather young generations than older people. Today. Malaysia has gone through cultural transformation. Muslim culture had been dominant in the country for decades. However, after penetrating the western culture in recent years, the rooted culture of Muslim has been altered, and sexual expression in public space has been somewhat allowed. The restroom design is particularly reeecting the altered culture.
The restroom design in the club Rootz was diďŹƒcult to get approval from the client as well as the local juristic ti on. This is due to the Muslim policy that sexual expression is strictly prohibited. The design is intended to create a counter-Muslim cultural design that layouts both 300 half-naked male and female photos in the restroom of the club. We wanted to experiment to see how the younger generation perceives this design. Having the sexy photos throughout the male and female restroom, people in the club will enhance customersâ€™ pleasure. The layout of the photos are strategically placed so that the images near vanity have lighter background to avoid showing water stain.

IS CHALLENGING, BUT YOUNG GENERATION WILL SUPPORT IT. 31

The male restroom is lled with 300 sexy female photos. One signiicant criteria in choosing the appropriate images is that they need to be international. This means diďŹ€erent ethnicity can be more appealing to various customers. Finidng right images of male was much harder than we expected.
DESIGN COMMUNICATION OFFICE
CONSTRUCTION The Building was constructed in 1909 by Albert Held and used as the second largest warehouse in Spokane’s Central Business District. The building structure primarily consists of a series of the wood column, beams and brick wall, and they are well preserved to be reused.

The arms of desigrer donot know any borders and continuously seek further creative potential.

The large conference room can accommodate maximum 10 people. these days, but considering the fact that the company deals with the creative works as well as professional business status, I needed to design a space which takes a well balance of the both factors. Therefore, there are a formal meeting room and inspirational drafting area where clients and designers can take books from the shelves and do some
