TABLE OF CONTENTS
COMADA DA BENJAMIN FLORESTA MOORE
AJAX OVERLOOK Aspen, Colorado Individual Project Forms of Ajax Overlook come from the abstracted shapes of the Rocky Mountains in this location. Expansive views of Colorado are demonstrated in the large windows that flank the south walls of the entire house. Through the use of natural materials and warm tones, it creates a comfortable ambiance for the snowy Aspen nights.
The form of this fireplace was taken from the trees found in Aspen and how they intertwine and abstract. The branch like features wrap around the ceiling mounted fireplace to created a focal point for this open plan. The material used for the branches is a fire resistant, thermoset plastic with a finish to create the illusion of wood.

KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM
FETTE Chandler, Arizona In collaboration with Emily Vester
Using the idea of a wine bottle, itâ€™s verticality, elegance and presence and merging it with the warmth of an inviting atmosphere, we created a sophisticated wine bar. We emphasized the wine bottle itself, and how it can be abstracted, analyzed and displayed. Hues of wine are incorporated in this space with dark hues, low saturation and ranges of grays are mixed with a transparency aspect of glass, in order to create a balance of materials and textures.
P EXTERIOR LOUNGE
CUSTOM WINE STORAGE
PRIVATE DINING ROOM
INTERIOR LOUNGE This system was created to be the feature wall, separating the private dining room from the public. Each wine bottle is tilted just enough so the liquid is touching the cork, preventing it from drying out.
COMADA DA FLORESTA Rio de Janeiro, Brazil In collaboration with Amanda Schactner Design Excellence Winner
Hues of the lush rainforest foliage and the ocean are combined with the reflective properties of water and the textures of beach wood and stone, to create an intrinsic experience of the lush Rio coast. Verticality of the space is achieved with the repetition of beams and columns that vanish into the coastline, bringing an open and contemporary ambiance to the space. The overall tone of the space brings the outside in, dissolving the boundaries of the interior and the exterior.

GUEST SUITE FLOOR PLAN
Guest suites are on the upper layers of the resort known as, the Emergent layer of the rainforest. The majority of the suites have vast ocean views, with tall windows to emphasize the landscape, as if they were emerging into the view of the rainforest. They consist of two private bedrooms, and restrooms with a separate water closet. The bedrooms share a open living space with a kitchenette, living room and a covered balcony. Materials used in the suites are of warm tones and natural woods, to create a serene environment. Stone clad walls and floors in the restrooms have a relaxing energy, with a luxurious feel.
Benjamin Moore Tempe, Arizona Individual Project
While taking into consideration the classic Benjamin Moore ideals, morals and history, a reinterpretation of the brand was created within this space. The Tempe Hardware Building is a historical site which needed to be saved and celebrated for preservation purposes. Without touching the facade, exterior bearing walls and windows, a new identity for Benjamin Moore was created. Through the use of modern and masculine materials, a re-branding of this company was established while still being flexible, inviting space, and careful consideration of the existing building. The upper two levels of this building are not on contract and are tenant spaces.
The white and cut out spaces in the Parti Diagrams display the void area of the plan which would act as a skylight. This acted as a three story space which would bring natural light to the building, illuminating the staircase.
By blocking out the building it shows, the public versus private spaces. To achieve adjacencies and the scale of the building, we designed the store around these parameters.
Flanking the north, is the feature wall with the Color Card Display System. This wall is angled in order for the customers to be funneled toward the Point of Service. The low product displays are placed at an angle, perpendicular to the main wall, to create an invisible line of sight.
KIT OF PARTS |
SELF HELP COMPONENTS
In collaboration with Amanda Schactner, Nina Knoph, Axie Hoover, & Karlin Marg The Kit of Parts for the Benjamin Moore store consist of the Self Help, Product Display, the Color Card Display System and the Service components. All components were designed by a team and were designed to be used in stores across the country. This in mind, we chose a neutral color pallet with and industrial aesthetic in order to keep all components mainstream. Since stores enjoy changing their systems and keeping them updated, we designed every piece of this collection so that it is flexible, modular and easily transportable, as seen in the explosions of the low display components.

DISPLAY COMPONENTS HIGH PRODUCT DISPLAYS
LOW PRODUCT DISPLAYS
The display components of the Kit of Parts, exhibit the product within the Benjamin Moore store. Products such as paint cans of various sizes, brushes, stains, tape, and many more can be assembled on these pieces. Arrangement of the pieces is flexible and easily transportable from store to store.
This custom staircase spans all three levels of the building, and is built into the lower right sector of the space, which acts as a skylight illuminating the public space. This feature is distinct, because it is parallel to the main wall of the first level. While also hanging into the store acting a as a transitional barrier between the Color Card Display System and the rest of the store.
