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.

 

Thank you for reading!  Leave feedback and let me know what you think 🙂

Retail Design

These plans and sections are the product of one of our last 3 hour charettes.  I chose to design the store, because it is an interesting space in my facility.  I apologize for the quality of the images.

Ceiling & Floor Plan

I manipulated the ceiling plan to communicate my concept of movement and to create interest in the space.  I really enjoy working with the ceiling plane in any plan because I feel like it is a HUGE part of how a user experiences the space.  Everywhere I go I’m always looking UP to see how the architect/designer has communicated the spaces, wayfinding, etc.

In my final ceiling plan I decided to go with a more sinuous curve in the soffit over the cash wrap and mimic that same curve in the cash wrap design itself, which you will see in a perspective later in this post.  The sinuous curve matches that of the soffits over the window displays that is drawn in this current ceiling plan.

A mixture of recessed can lighting and track lighting will be specified to illuminate not only the space, but to highlight the product in the store as well.

 

The floor plan’s basic layout has the shoe section being on the far left with product display being on shelves against the wall.  The “boxes” up against the windows will display the individual styles of shoes.  (this can be seen clearer in section and perspective).

The lower right section of the plan will contain all of the dance apparel such as leotards, skirts, shorts, and tops on face-out display fixtures as well as two floor standing fixtures.

The top right section will contain “gifts” such as posters or prints related to dance, books about dance, picture frames, etc.

The small sections of visible wall will be built out to mimic the build out around the columns and mirrors will be placed on those sections.

Sections

The top section faces the cash wrap.  The custom shelving on the sides of the cabinets will hold any product that would need to be displayed (in this image I have placed dance bags there) on the top three shelves.

The bottom two shelves and drawers are storage and display for dance tights.  There are so many varieties of dance tights, and I came up with the idea for this display with the inspiration from Victoria’s Secret and how they display their bras.  One style of tights will be faced out on display and possibly opened to be able to feel it and see it, while the size runs will be neatly contained in the drawers underneath the display.

The cabinets will be used for staff storage for materials and supplies.

The bottom sections shows the apparel face outs and the window displays better.  The soffits above the window displays will have lettering signage to show people where the style is that they may be looking for.

Revit Model Perspectives

After the charette I was really excited to get this space into Revit to see it in 3D.  I wanted to make sure that the “experience” that I was creating especially in the ceiling plane was not too much.  I would LOVE some feedback on what you all think!

View of Entrance into the Shop

View from Shoe Section

I know it is hard to imagine with out it being rendered with material selections and finishes.

 

So here is some of the FF&E that I have chosen for the space.

Flooring: Shaw Contract Group: City Maple in Alabaster

Window Display Concept:

Benches in Shoes: Hive Modern: Suzanne double lounge chair:

Upholstered in: Knoll Boucle in Chartreuse

Reception Desk Surface: Abet Laminati solid surfacing in White

& Countertop: Dupoint Corian in Arctic Lime (it has a much more green tint to it in person)

Display Fixtures: Store Supply Warehouse

 

I would absolutely appreciate any feedback that you all could give.  Let me know what you think of the space planning, material selections, color choices etc.

Thanks for  reading!
