LETTER OF INTENT

STATEMENT OF PURPOUSE

Februrary 4th, 2012 Februrary 4th, 2012 For the Attention of the Admissions Board To whom it may concern, My name is Érica Giacomelli Soares and I am a graduate of FAAP - Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado, major in architecture. As I recently graduated from my undergaduate course, I am sincerely hoping to enter in Istituto Marangoni’s “Interior Design For Luxury Living” postgraduate program. I learned about the program as I was searching a master’s course that would suit my needs and aspirations, in hopes to fulfill my wish of being a complete professional in the field of interior design. Originally, I already knew the fame and prestige that Istituto Marangoni’s held, but I was able to learn more about the college’s vision in the Institute’s internet page. When I saw the concept of your Interior Design program and the focus that it has in building strong interior designers with a unique sense of the transposition of boundaries of fashion and design, I was completely drawn and interested. My major of graduation is architecture, but since the beginning of it, I felt attracted to the interior design field. So, to abide by this interest, I started to study it out of my college curriculum. I completed two Summer Programs in Interior Design: one in Parsons - The New School for Design, New York; and the other one in Central Saint Martins, in London. I also completed an extension course in furniture design, accessibility design for guests with disabilities, nautical yacht design and other in jewelry design, expanding my formation to a more diverse one, creating an interconnected vision of design. I understand that much like the vision that the program has, I also believe in the continue pursue of the dialogue between fashion and interior design. I also believe that the interior design, as much as others forms of design, can aim to express emotions, and make the public of the space aware of such emotions that the space is trying to manifest and convey.

{ 10 }


My hopes in entering this program is to acquire a high level of professional training as much as I can get. The program being held in Milan also is a great reason why I am applying, as the city is one of the most design-oriented cities in the World, so I think that I could benefit from this challenging and strong cultural environment. I also expect to make the most of the program by conversing with the professionals that teach in the school, being so that I know that the teachers of Istituto Marangoni are always in tune with the market and with the current trends. Ultimately, I would like to add that it would be a great pleasure to be a part of Istituto Marangoni’s student body, where I know that I will be able to improve my professional and creative skills to complement my academics in the matters of interior design, as well as improve my aesthetic sense as a whole. Thank you very much for your time. Sincerely,

Érica Giacomelli Soares

JECTS


TÉC AD ACQUA

STORE DEVELOPMENT

The briefing of the Tec Ad Acqua project was complex, yet, intuitive. The first step was to identify a family history or tradition that would allow a creation of a fictional brand, that would allow the creation of a store that would convey all the aspects and characteristics of the brand. The family tradition that was picked for this project, was that my grandfather used to dive from the rocks in Polignano a Mare, so the natural choice was to create a diving and swimming clothe’s brand. The brand tries to pass a feeling of lightness and technology, and the interior of the store also follows this path. For the interiors, the choices made were: light materials, like perforated steel and corian for the shelves; frequent use of water, as in the glass floor with water underneath and in the water tanks distributed along the space. The entrance has a jag, that’s made to show to the costumer the entrance, as well as to manifest the technology attribute.

Facade with waves cut in metal, with space for LED lighting. The front of the store is also made with floor to ceiling windows, taking advantage of the transparency that the brand tries to convey.

JEWELRY DESIGN

ACADEMIC WORK

As to further the studies of design, without constraining my point of view to only one field, the course of jewelry design was taken. The main objective of the course was how to learn the technical drawings of rings, earrings and necklaces. The drawing of a tridimensional piece made me more aware of how to draw a perspective, and a building, which is also a tridimensional “object”. The final project was a mini collection, and a real project of a jewelry based in one of our technical drawings.

Burlesque Space

Parsons Summer Program

In the Interior Design Parsons Summer Program, we were thought a lot about how to make the interiors more humanized, in various ways, like: how to understand the client, how to use the mood boards at the project’s favor, how to render the plans and sections so as the client may understand better. The main goal of the course was to modify the Coney Island’s Museum, as to reflect some aspect of the varied activities that are showcased in the museum. As my choice of artistic showcase, I chose the burlesque shows, that were very different from anything that I’ve ever seen. The mood boards, the interior, materials and the vibe that were expressed were always focused on the sexiness of that particular kind of show, as well as the playfulness of it. The result was a space that’s versatile, with a stage and bar, with spaces in it to lounge and to shop the top selling products of the Coney Island’s Museum.

Light in the Human BodyPhotography Project

This photography project was held in a architecture’s photography course. The objective of it was to study the light in a picture, and how it falls in an unusual scenery, object or pose. My approach to this briefing was to study the light in the human female body in peculiar and unusual poses, so as to identify how the light plays a particular role in any circumstance. The result is a study is a study in how the lights and shadows reveal and hide the human body, concluding that the lights and shadows are fundamental in any project, specially if it is an architecture or interior one.

Lingerie Store

Concept Store

In this project for college, the briefing was to create a space in a existing place, to accommodate a new high-end designer lingerie brand, that we would create. The attributes and the interiors should follow this briefing. I chose to work with tones raging from the light pink, until the dark wine. The materials are velvet, brocade, Swarovski crystals and chandeliers, as well as white lacquer and colored glass. The feeling is that the brand is modern, feminine, sexy and up to date with the necessities of the modern woman. In the project of the store, there is also an exterior lounge so the mens can relax when women do the shopping.

Vogue’s Laundry

Central Saint Martins Summer Program

The interior design course in Central Saint Martins was more hands-on than any other course of interior design I had ever taken. The course was all about the drawing and the comprehension of the tridimensional space from alternative activities, such as the drawing of full scale bathroom using only colored tapes. The main objective was to develop a new service for a well known brand of the marked, and to create the attributes of the brand, as well of the interiors of the new service. All the services had to fit in a regular size container, to be transported easily. My brand was Vogue and the service I chose to incorporate to it, was a laundry, with the name Vogue - No Dirt. The interior in the container was designed to be at the same time a laundry with washers and driers, and in the other side a make-up station. So the woman can go inside, and while they are waiting, they can socialize with other women, and touch their make-up. This idea can be taken to festivals as well to fashion weeks, and so on. The attributes of the brand that oriented the project, as well as the materials, are shown bellow.

Miami Apartment

Residential Project

This residential project in Downtown Miami was commanded by a family that plans to only use the apartment in the summer, but that could become a permanent apartment in the future. They receive a lot of guests, and the main line that they wanted to follow in the interior design was that they wanted to “bring the water and the sea into the apartment”. The project was made based in the concept that the interior should match the exterior, the port of Miami. Thus the project is very clean, but with colors that match the tones of the Miami water and sky. As another project choice, was the diverse use of mother of pearls and glass in the gallery, as a way to incorporate the beach feeling as soon as the guest arrives at the residence. The choice of color for the living room was the various tones of turquoise, as well as white. Each room has it’s own color palette: the master bedroom is chocolate, light blue and water blue, with silver and grey as undertones. The boy’s room is dark wood with blue. And the girl’s room is beige, grey and panna cotta. All the project was approved in the City of Miami in first instance.

Boutique Hotel

in Rio de Janeiro Final Architecture Project

To conclude the Architecture and Urbanism major, it was indispensable a graduation project, to showcase all the knowledge that it’s learnt trough the course. My choice of project was a boutique hotel, inspired by the W Starwood’s hotels, in Rio de Janeiro, in an area that it’s being completely remodeled and revitalized: the Porto Maravilha’s Pier. The project tries to be a new landmark in the city, but not in the traditional way of the landmark. The objective was it to be more permeable with the surroundings. One of the project tactics that were made to make it more permeable, is the cutting of the building, creating a frame-like pool space, that can either see the side of the sea and the port, as well as see the hills in the other side. The form of the boutique hotel is also different, as to resemble characteristics of the carioca people, it has two set of curves, one for each way, just like the boardwalk of the Copacabana beach, giving more of a sense of the easiness of the carioca people. The branding and interiors of the hotel were also designed, and they also tried to convey the beach and glamourous feeling of this new area that is the Porto Maravilha. This project was made in one year time, and it was oriented by Dr. Haroldo Gallo.
