Final Construction Documents

Finish Plans & Schedule

Furniture Plans & Schedule

Accessories Schedule

Our final project for the semester was to create a series of construction documents for finishes furniture and accessories.  Doing the accessories schedule really helped me to feel like the spaces were finally finished.  The documents were to be done for five spaces in our senior project’s facility.  In the dance academy I chose to do the schedules and plans for the:

  • Dance Studio
  • Arrival/Reception/Performance Lobby
  • Cafe/Lounge
  • T.V. Lounge
  • Retail Store

Commencement Speech Update*

I am finally done writing my commencement speech.  It sends the message that I wanted it to in a way that is not dull or dry, and has some humor that all of the students will be able to relate to.  The speech overall gives hope for the future and I am really excited, now that it is written, for graduation day to finally get here so I can get it over with and be a University of Arkansas Alumni.

I hope you all have enjoyed following my journey as a senior interior design student, and hopefully I will have the opportunity to continue this blog with my professional work so that I can continue to keep you all up to date on things going on in my professional career.

Thanks for reading!

I couldn’t be happier with how the overall project turned out.  After uncountable sleepless nights and a lot of work, my senior project is done and ready for presentation.  I hope you all have enjoyed watching the project’s progress.  The images are produced using Autodesk Revit Architecture, Photoshop & InDesign.

I’m going to try and have someone film my presentation and I may be able to get that on here for you all to understand the process a little bit more in depth.

Thanks for following!

Research Findings

What I’ve ‘StumbledUpon’

I have been searching ideas and inspiration for the dance academy, and I came across a few very cool things.

These acoustical tiles in a honeycomb pattern caught my eye.  The colors intermixed with one another create a great pattern and bring texture to any space.  In a dance academy, acoustics are an important part of the design.  This product by Form Us With Love is one of the cool things that I stumbled upon this evening.

Color Scheme

One of the biggest decisions that I need to make when it comes to FF&E is the color scheme.  Once I know what colors I will incorporate into the design I am able to then get inspired about furniture and other finishes.  It also helps me to contemplate the overall feeling that I want to bring to the dance academy.

 I stumbled across this image:

The chartreuse pop of color communicates to the concept of energy, motion and movement that I need to implement into the design.  The warm wood tones and bronze accents bring warmth and charm to this space.  The white walls allow the other aspects of the room take center stage, which is exactly what I want for the dance academy.  The dancers are to BE the main attraction and the surroundings will be neutral in order to allow them to stand out.  Warm greys, creams, and pear greens could also be used with the chartreuse accent as a successful color scheme for the academy.

Here is an example of the last discussed color scheme.

The last three colors in this scheme are exactly what I am thinking for the dance academy along with bright whites, exposed concrete, stainless steel, and exposed electrical wiring:

Senior Studio Final Project

Hello fellow bloggers

Welcome to my design blog focused (this semester at least) on my final project.  I have chosen to design a Dance Academy in the Legacy Building located in the entertainment district of Fayetteville, Arkansas.  The location being on Dickson St. right across from the Walton Arts Center turned out to be perfect.

Last semester, Studio 7, was strictly focused on the programming phase of the design process.  EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, was taken into consideration to make sure that this facility will function effectively and efficiently for the users.

The Legacy Building
Studio 7 compiled into 2 Binders

Studio 8’s sole focus is the design process.  I am excited to get this part of the project started, and I am asking ALL OF YOU to follow along with me to the finish.  Please provide me with comments, feedback, criticisms, and suggestions.  It is part of my grade and I will take every response to thought.

Much appreciation ❤

JMC
