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!

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!

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.

Parti Party?

In class on Monday we had a charette for a few hours to quickly ideate 3 floorplan partis.  Because my project has three floors, I was only able to fully produce 2 partis that communicated my projects concept.

To reiterate the concept of the project:

Unity is key in the dance academy’s facility and this will be done through implementing smaller concepts of movement and transparency.

The two sets of partis show not only the relationship within each floor, but  the relationship between all three floors.

Parti Sketches

The mostly public spaces are on the arriving floor (third).  The dance merchandise store, main waiting area, performance studio, and administrative offices are on this floor.  The purpose being that as dancers, dancers guardians, and other guests arrive, they would not have to go further than the first floor of the dance academy.

A mixture of public and private spaces are on the fourth floor.  This was done to communicate the concept of unity by bringing everyone together on the middle floor.  Waiting areas, dance studios, the cafe/lounge, and locker rooms are located on this level.

The fifth floor is mostly private housing other dance studios, the make up room, waiting areas, etc.  These spaces are located on the top floor making them the most private.

The first set of sketches show a hierarchy of paths which is not shown in the second set.  The space is not completely filled in the first set, however.  Also, the spaces in the first set differ from the second set in that they are mirrored.  What is on the third floor in the first is now on the fifth floor in the second.

Parti Sketches 2

The third floor in the second set of ideation sketches holds the most private spaces.  The third floor houses a medium size studio, a small studio, the locker room, makeup room, and viewing spaces.  A concern was brought up by a professor about privacy and how to manage that when dealing with the arrival space to each floor.  The arrival space will be an enclosed area that guests will travel through on each floor.  By doing this, it creates it’s own space separate from the dance academy which regulates pedestrian traffic.

The second floor of the academy (the fourth floor) holds the instructor offices, administration offices, conference room, medical training room, cafe/lounge area, a small studio, a medium studio, and viewing spaces.  This floor brings together public spaces from the fifth floor and private spaces from the third floor and becomes a communal area where the users can unite and enhance relationships.

The fifth floor holds the large performance studio where not only large practices take place, but also small performances can be done and watched.  It also holds a lobby/reception space, waiting area, apparel store and gift shop, and viewing areas.  A concern was brought up that it was awkward to have the apparel store on the third floor of the academy and whether that would be optimal for the users or not.  The stores main purpose is to provide a place for the dancers to purchase the required apparel and shoes for dance practices.  Having the store on site makes it easy for the parents or guardians to make a quick purchase right before or after class.  Having it on the third floor of the academy next to the large performance studio also allows small gift-like products to be sold for people to purchase who have come to watch a performance.

Now onto block plans which will be shown and discussed in my next post!

Thanks for reading!
