This project was completed over ten weeks. It included an on site analysis of a current apartment at the Drayton Towers. From this on site tour I picked the location that I wanted the apartment to be, I decided to have the apartment on the South side, which gets all day sun, but lower to the street level to have tree top views as the hotel across the street from the apartment blocks any city view.
I drew site plans and sun diagrams to understand the space.
Here comes the sun.
But it's alright... Because I installed black out curtains.
Next, Bubble Diagrams.
I drew bubble and block diagrams to determine the final floor plan of the apartment.
setting the mood
A mood board of materials, fabric, and inspirational images that are favorited by the client allows me to create a cohesive design through out the entire apartment.
conveying the mood
With the colors and mood set, I began to pick out furniture for each of the rooms. Furniture was sourced from a variety of stores, antique shops, and online bidding sites and was often built in.
With the furniture picked and the floor plan set I was able to draw and final floor and lighting plan.
I incorporated my furniture design background by choosing to design furniture built into the space. For example, the master bedroom includes a built in bed. The studio has a built in desk and shelving. The living room has a built in seating nook. These built in features show customization and attention to detail with in a space.
These renders are done with water color.
