Final Project for the Semester!!!

I recently finished my final project for my junior year in Interior Design.  We were to come up with three different solutions for a community clinic that is needed in the area.  The three solutions were to be different variations on a theme.  The theme was given to us by another student in class.

My project was a young women's clinic that provided sex education as well as medical assistance.  I named the company OAsis Services which stands for Optimistic Assistance Services.

Solution 1.

Solution #1 is a basic layout of  a woman's community clinic, using straight walls to maximize the space while making it work efficiently for the users.

Solution 2.
Solution #2 Was a slightly different take on Solution #1 adding in curved walls for interest and privacy.

Solution 3.
Solution #3 is the budget conscious solution.  Using construction and materials that won't break the budget, HOWEVER not boring in any sense.  Adding in diagonal walls keeps the space interesting and creates an "experience" for each user.

Sorry it took so long for me to get these posted.  It has been a VERY busy past couple of months, but... I'M BACK!!!

Happy Monday?

This image hit my inbox this morning from a great blog: SHELTER of whose e-newsletter I am subscribed to. It made me smile on this gloomy Monday. 

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Apartment Love

I have been moving into my apartment since Friday, and it is definitely keeping me busy.  I am in a rush to get a lot of work done, because my last bridal shower is going to be hosted there.  For the past two days we have been painting machines.  So for todays post I have shown you some before and after shots.  It is no where close to being finished... due to lack of furniture and decor, but this just shows what a huge impact paint makes on a space!
