Finished in October 2008, this assignment was the first to show my newly learned perspective drawing and rendering techniques. The objective was to redesign an office for a Texas Tech faculty member. A site visit to the office was required, where we took pictures and asked questions about any problems with the current design and any new features our client would like to see implemented.
Problems and Solutions:
A strict budget was given and the client wanted to keep her current office furniture as it was still in good condition. Instead of reupholstering the furniture to help lighten the room, I simply chose lighter flooring, wall colors, and ceiling. A rearrangement of the furniture helped to open up the space and make it feel less dark and crowded. A textured window film allows light to penetrate the space while keeping privacy in tact. The back room was previously closed off to the rest of the office, this proved to be a perfect space to turn into a casual meeting area and sun room, which again helps natural lighting reach into the office.
