TORA COURSEY 4TH YEAR INTERIOR DESIGN STUDENT

EMAIL: TORACOURSEY@GMAIL.COM PHONE: 978-505-5882

Welcome to my portfolio! I am currently a fourth year student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in interior design and a Bachelor of Business Administration in entrepreneurial management at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. During my undergraduate years, I have worked in a number of design fields. I have enjoyed being the first student to attempt both the Neeley School of Business and the TCU interior design program. Through my finance classes I have learned how to manage projects and the accounting that goes into budgets. Through my management classes I have learned how to be an effective team member and team leader. Through taking seven and eight classes per semester while working part time, I have learned that I strive in high-pace environments where I need to push myself. I hope to use my business education to further have an understanding of the finance process that goes into creating a cost effective project that aligns with client expectations.

Acadia Athlesiure is targeting women that want to wear comfortable flexible clothes that allow them to go on a walk or hike in a park, but also be able to stop at the grab errands in the same outfit. The store will reflect the lifestyle of the trendy hiker/outdoors woman. The store is designed to feel more like a comfortable cabin and remind consumers of the natural resources we have around us. The clothes will suit those looking to keep warm in the winter while also having summer lines for women looking to work out in the hot sun.

NATIONAL CANCER CENTER OF SINGAPORE 10

NATIONAL CANCER CENTER OF SINGAPORE Summer 2016 Tsoi Kobus and Associates Challenge: My role in this project was to review construction documents while also working through renderings for the clients. I presented to the clients fifteen renderings, which I completed within twelve days. This will be the largest cancer center in the world when completed. Concept: Calm and soothing images surround you during your care. This scheme highlights images of xrayed botanicals and abstract floral inspiration as screens. The wood in this scheme is warm but not as dark as the upper floors to create a lighter atmosphere than the upper levels.

COMMERCIAL DESIGN - HOTEL GYM

Napa Valley, California

The gym is designed to cater to those looking to sweat or relax in an environment that still allows them to still feel close to the serene outdoors of Napa Valley. The large windows located in front of the cardio machines give the visitors view of the main vineyard. The gym includes a water and towel station, treadmills, elliptical, free weights as well as stretching equipment. Attached to the gym is a yoga studio for those looking to relax even further on their trip. Similar to the aesthetic of the hotel, the yoga studio has been designed to calm the visitors with the use of natural lighting and organic materials.
