STUDENT LOUNGE Redesigned a graduate student lounge to provide a collaboration area, printing station and comfortable seating. This project was for an applied geometry class where we were given the task to create a tessellation and incoporate it into our field of study. I used my tesselation to create a wallpaper for this student lounge.
This retail design competition was a group project to create a space for older adults. Our overall design goals were to provide an inviting and educational environment for our guests. Our group incorporated sustainable design by using sustainable materials throughout the whole store.
Placed 3rd overall in the design competition
HOSPITAL DESIGN Memorial Hermann Hospital, ranked among the nations top 15 healthcare systems, is dedicated to advancing health. It is the largest not-for-profit health system in Southeast Texas. With this top tier healthcare, this design for the patient room is designed to make the patient feel at home while receiving the best care they can get. Through the design elements of line, shape, form, space and color this space makes the patient feel comfortable by making the space feel more like a home rather than a hospital. This space is meant for the patient to get away from stress and relax. The balance allows the room to feel peaceful while the contrast of the colors makes the room feel more open.
