DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Wendie has been passionate about art and design for as long as she can remember. In her earlier years, Wendie worked with all mediums of art in an independent studio. This allowed her to grow with creative freedom, while her time at FSU allowed her appreciation and attention to details to grow and develop. With a love and understanding of art, she discovered her passion for Interior Design. But before art, she understood culture. Being born in Germany, living across the states, and choosing to travel abroad instilled within Wendie an awareness of her environment, adaptation skills, and a constant curiosity and appreciation for various cultures. She is keen to dive into a client’s own story and translate it into their space.

RESIDENTIAL DESIGN AGING IN PLACE

AGING IN PLACE - RESIDENTIAL CONCEPT STATEMENT

The homes designed with senior living in mind for Karen and Bob Zielaskowski, and their visiting grandsons (aged 7-14), are inspired and informed by characteristics of the sun dial, an elegant timekeeping device that guides one through direction of shadow given as a new sun arises, while simultaneously being an object of pure function combined with simplistic features. The concept will be demonstrated through both spaces in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Portland, Oregon with the use of modern minimalism and linear aspects throughout the interior architecture that reflect the straight accuracy of time, as well as symbolizing the continuous return of daylight. The modern aesthetic will provide a sense of stability and function, while incorporating materials of color and warmth representative of both city’s celebrated cultures that introduces a more calming atmosphere. Sunlight will play an important role, tied into natural elements, such as stone, a reference to both the concept and natural vernacular of the locations. The design will create a sense of natural warmth as the sun rises and is absorbed and filtered through each home’s interior surfaces, evoking a sense of spiritual rebirth and optimism relative to both the Santa Fe and Portland culture, while continuing to be a source of relaxation and refuge within each city. Function will be as direct as the sun dial and made to be easily accessible for senior living – the ultimate purpose of the space. CONCEPT: Sundial

DURATION: 6 Weeks

SKILLS LEARNED: ADA design

LOCATION: Portland, Oregon Santa Fe, New Mexico

PROGRAMS & TECHNIQUES: Hand Rendering, Revit 2018, Auto CAD, Adobe Photoshop

PROJECT DESCIRPTION : Design both a summer and winter home for senior living.

SANTA FE , NEW MEXICO DESIGN GOALS: The clients, Karen and Bob Zielaskowski, are interested in owning a summer and winter home in Portland, OR and Santa Fe, NM upon entering retirement. They desire for both homes to be ADA accessible as well as accommodate their love for the outdoors and time visiting with their grandchildren. Their main desires and goals are as listed: - Open space plan, limiting circulation - Kitchen and living area open to one another, with the outdoor patio entrance near kitchen, as well as a pass through window and gas stove and kitchen island. - Plenty of storage space to hide files, as well as outdoor tools and toys for the grandchildren. - Gas fireplace, ADA restroom, and a mixture of open and closed cabinetry in the kitchen. - Exterior faรงades of both homes representing the local vernacular.

R E S E A R C H: C L I M A T E : On average, there are 283 sunny days per year in Santa Fe. The US average is 205 sunny days. The summer high is around 86 degrees, while the winter low is 19 degrees. The only extremes would be incredible hot and dry climates at certain points in the year.

C U L T U R E : The main attractions would be the

Dusky earth tones appear in both the desert landscape, as well as the local culture of New Mexico. The city of Santa Fe is located amongst the Rocky Mountains; thus, the incorporation of stone features. Patterns with vibrant colors woven throughout pieces such as the wool rug, refer to the vibrant life within the city and its ties to Native American

local trade markets, music, museums, Spanish and

mountains. This combined with Adobe architecture makes for charming desert sceneries. Santa Fe is a host to a harmonious blend of Native American and cultures from settlers around the world.

N A T I V E M A T E R I A L S : The most vernacular home design in Santa Fe, NM would be the old original pueblo style New Mexico homes. They are always flat, just tilted slightly for water runoff.

A

common feature includes projecting wooden roof beams (vigas), sometimes used purely for aesthetics.

ARISE - LIGHTING DESIGN AWARD The concept for the space was initially the bloom of a flower that brought the dining experience to life. Its shape transitioned for mechanical purposes, but maintained its overall goal. Its simple lines now belie its mechanical complexities. A new approach has been taken to transform the pendant’s form and brightness level simultaneously. This enables end users to customize their look, foster playful interaction within the community, and give arise to an ambient atmosphere.

FRONT ENTRANCE PERSPECTIVE Architectural features that arch overhead, abstracting European features that heighten a space both visually and materialistically. The interior of the entry arch being digitally ran for marketing purposes that intrigue consumers to explore further within the space.

L’Amour de soi, French for self love, is a concept that speaks to the modern mindset that a healthier, happier lifestyle grows from the time we take to nourish ourselves. It intertwines the luxury of cosmetics with the overall necessity to tend to ourselves on a level that sustains one psychologically. While a grocery store provides healthy food options, L’Amour de soi will guide users aesthetically and empower them through their own power of choice. Providing sustainable options and a variety of brands including those found both locally and organically, will in turn naturally develop a sense of community and trust. Products will be displayed to spark inspiration, intrigue, and encourage self-care that is sustainable; thus, nourishing the earth as well. L’Amour de soi implies a connection to natural beauty while consistently improving and lifting the lives of users.
