Final Presentation

Presentation Layout

I apologize for the crooked floor plans.  After I presented and had pulled the ceiling plans out from behind, the board came unpinned.

During Presentation

So happy to be done with not only my presentation, but the project as a whole!  I am very pleased with the way that it all turned out and I am so glad that I chose something that I am very passionate about to design.  I LOVE this project and I LOVE the final outcome!

It’s all in the Details

                

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!

Practice Renderings

Dance Studio (11×17 Final)

This space represents what my facility is all about, therefore it will be one of two of my large perspectives in my presentation.  This is a practice rendering and draperies still have to be added.  The space will be much brighter after being rendered in the cloud and photoshopped.

Arrival/Reception (11×17 Final)

This space shows what you see when you enter the academy on the most public floor.  The final view will be slightly different, with sun shades added to the windows, base molding added to the walls and a soffit above the elevators with architectural lighting.  I am currently working on the view beyond this space and making sure it is illuminated enough to be visible and understood. This space is integral to the concept of the dance academy in that it communicates movement which enhances the main concept of unity.

Cafe/Lounge (8×10 Final)

This is the only space that has been sent to the cloud and photoshopped to be lightened up and to reflect the true materials and colors.  The only thing left to do to this space is to add people as scaled figures. Retail Store (8×10 Final)

Retail Store (8×10 Final)

This image is rendered only on draft to determine what time of day allowed the space to show up the best.  This gives you an idea of what is going on and objects will be inserted in using photoshop after it is rendered in the cloud.

Circulation Viewing Space (5×7 Final)

The circulation space will have tufted chartreuse seat cushions photoshopped in and will be lightened as well.

MakeUP Room (5×7 Final)

This image is not from the cloud, but has been sent but not photoshopped just yet.  The image will be lightened and accessories will be added using photoshop.

T.V. Room (5×7 Final)

This is a draft rendering of the space where the dancer’s guardians and family members can come and watch their practices through closed circuit cameras in the studios.  The image will be lightened in photoshop dramatically.  Check out that carpet pattern… it is from Shaw Contract Group.  I am happy with how it turned out.

Idea Collaboration

Color Scheme/ Basic Materials

This board displays my color scheme.  Obviously my POP of color, Chartreuse a warm, yet subtle, cream, almost whites, and cool greys.

The carpet tile to the left is by SHAW and is used throughout the facility, especially in corridors, admin offices and the entrances.

The second image is a carpet tile from JJ-Invision that is gorgeous in person.  This will be used in viewing areas, instructor offices as well as the conference room.

The next two tiles are VCT from Johnsonite and the majority of the room will have the charcoal color and the chartreuse color will be placed sporadically.

The other 4 carpet tiles will be used together to create an interesting pattern in the viewing rooms.  Merging from dark to light and incorporating a bit of chartreuse, the carpet will have a similar pattern to this image:

Floor & Ceiling Plans

Do not mind the light fixture spacing in the ceiling plans, these are sketches/ideas.  A more accurate plan will be done in Revit for the final presentation.

Level #3

Level #4

Level #5

Floor and ceiling plans show transitions in space as well as circulation/way finding patterns.  Curvilinear elements as well as pops of color are introduced to create an experience for each and every user.

Activity Space: Dance Studio

The dance studio has a ceiling that creates interest in the space.  The squares on the ceiling are wood veneer that mimic the same finish as the flooring, and are surrounded by mill work, creating a coffered look. The fabrics from Knoll are going to be used for the drapery over the windows in the space.  The wall will be painted with the same two-tone colors to create a space that isn’t broken up and enhances the concept of movement.  The drapes are mounted on the mullions in between the windows and the doors to allow for daylight to penetrate the space even when the drapes are closed, providing the look of clear story windows.

The 4 finishes of wood are displayed, because I have yet to decide on which finish I want in the space.  All of the styles are either Oak or Maple, which is optimal for a dance studio, reducing the wear due to the inherent strength of the natural material.

The carpet tile is from JJ-Invision which will be used to create a transition within the studio for guests or people with street shoes, since street shoes are not allowed on the hardwood floors.

Movable bars will be used to accommodate for more people using both sides.  Plus, the fact that the perimeter of the room is surrounded by glazing, affixed ballet barres would have been nearly impossible.

Public Space: Cafe/ Lounge

This space has not yet been developed for the final design.  However, the finishes have been chosen.  The pendants can be seen suspended through the holes in the “cloud” ceiling, or displayed above banquet seating underneath the overhang (not seen in sketches).  The hardware chosen for the cabinets is very sleek and minimal.  The lounge and dining chairs will both be upholstered in the green fabric from Pallas Textiles.  The tables are from Coalesse.  The cabinet veneer is from Wilsonart and it is in Designer White, while the counter top is one of the 3 finishes from Icestone.  The flooring is, as described before, the Striations from Armstrong in Steel.

Circulation/Arrival

The arrival space’s design has been hammered out and finalized.  The finishes are displayed above, including the metal coil screen dividing the waiting area from the reception desk, the custom-made lighting beams that will bring the corridors down to human scale and provide movement within the space.  The carpet tile from Shaw Contract Group will be used in the elevator entrance while the Striations tiles from Armstrong will be used in the corridors.  The veneer for the reception desk is from Wilsonart and is in Designer White.  The countertops will either be Wilsonart’s solid surface in Designer White, or either of the 3 finishes from Icestone.  The benches shown above will be placed in the corridor and covered in the fabric from Pallas Textiles.

Public Space: Gift/Supply Shop

These are the finishes and fixtures chosen for the store so far.  We have not yet had a charette over this space, so I have not drawn sketches for it.  The Flooring in the space will be a mixture of Steel and Atmosphere Tiles from the Armstrong Striations collection.  The cashwrap veneer will be Designer White from Wilsonart.  The countertop is one of the three Icestone solutions seen above.

Locker Room

The only furniture chosen for the locker room so far are the lockers.  They are not metal, and therefore do not rust or mold.  The light fixtures are 2×4 fluorescent fixtures that provide even diffuse light.

Functional Block Plans

Our final plan was due on Wednesday, and it took 5 block plans (15 floor plan drawings) to finalize a floor plan that I am not only passionate about and LOVE, but one that will function the absolute best for the users.

The final plan takes multiple factors into consideration in its design.

  • Safety
  • Codes
  • Space planning
  • User’s experience

Level 3: First Floor of the Dance Academy [Mostly Private]

Level 4: Second Floor of the Dance Academy [Equally Public & Private]

Level 5: Third Floor of the Dance Academy [Mostly Public]

After the parti charette, the concept was implemented into multiple block floor plans to configure the best layout and space planning of the spaces.  Once the basic layout of spaces was determined, I was able to embellish the wall placement/shape/form, ultimately enhancing the user’s experience.

Challenges encountered during this process:

  • Windows EVERYWHERE!
  • If not windows, then doors to balcony’s
  • Multiple stairways to accommodate and create paths to and from
  • Existing electrical and equipment storage
  • Unique Architecture
Challenges were overcome with careful thought and multiple iterations until a unique, exciting,  & functional floor plan was developed!

I apologize for the quality of the pictures, they are photos of the drafted floor plans.  I will be scanning the originals soon and posting better images.

Give me feedback!!!
