The Pay Off

Hard work pays off. I have a beautiful final project that shows the days and nights of work that were put into this project. It may have seemed too hard at some points, but at the end I look and let out a big sigh of relief. I would like to have pushed my design even further if I had more time. The part of the project that took me the longest was finding my way around Revit during the design process. I wish I would have known Revit in more detail before my senior year, but at least I know it now. I am so thankful for being able to graduate this year. Here I come professional world! I hope you are ready for me!

Happy Graduation to all you Seniors!

We presented our projects on Monday afternoon. We spoke for 4-6 minutes, and then the professionals critiqued us by asking questions about our concept implementation, design features, and finish/furnishing selections.

Note to future foam core users: do not paint foam core boards, they warp

Other than my slightly warped boards, my drawings, renderings, and materials boards looked great! Everyone's stuff looked great this semester, actually. You could really tell how hard we worked. The images make me so proud. Yay for success!

Drawings Complete

This is it. Grueling hours of labor, a slight case of carpel tunnel, and no human contact for the majority of the last month. All to product these drawings. Even though they are not perfect, I am so proud of them and so proud of myself for meeting my deadline. Now on to the physical posters boards and materials boards, but the hard part is over. No words can describe the feeling when your hard work pays off, and you have this creation that is your baby. Yay!

Before PhotoShop

I thought it would be neat to have a set of some before photoshop pictures and then after, so everyone could see my mad photoshop skills. These are just a few of my images. There will be some more and they definitely need some work done.

Rendering, Rendering, Rendering

I dubbed this weekend rendering weekend. I am working with Revit Cloud to turn my 3D views into rendered perspectives. I am going to photo shop each image further this week.

This is my fitness arrival space. An earlier blog post reveal the specific of the materials you see here. I have three different color options and I am looking for some feedback on which would be the best.

I am leaning towards the last one for the energy, I have yet to apply the pattern of wall covering and the colored patterns to the chairs. I will have scale figures added in photoshop, also.

Treatment Room Materials

This is a preliminary materials board lacking the individual titles for each item, but the details of each selection are listed below. The title block will be further developed into design element for the final presentation and the board with be re-enforced to be more sturdy. I would love to hear ideas for improvement on the board layout.

I need some good feedback on my furniture and finishes in my individual treatment rooms. The concept for this area is relaxation. Therefore, I chose less saturated materials that should evoke calming emotions.
