Imagine, an advertising company with ideas of intersections, connectivity, multiple entrances and exits, circulation, change, flexibility, public/private spaces, product/systems as one, linkage, and conceal and reveal. Changes in floor and ceiling heights, materials, colors, walls, natural lighting, hierarchy, and ventilation contribute to the success of the space.
My project consists of expanding on these ideas for an advertising company. I want to explore and challenge those lines between public and private spaces with the collaboration of including product and systems and one. Changes in floor and ceiling heights will allow for a complex, yet simple space that can be used to keep the space looking lively and young.
My space is an existing building located in Colfax, North Carolina at Alfred Williams & Co. I will be using the shell of the building for the project. The original space is a two-story complex that will be altered to contain such ideas listed above.
I am very interested and excited about this project. I will be completing this project by July 31, 2008. As of now, I am working on collecting my thoughts and interests with the project through sketch models, user narratives, and word representations. Included below are a few sketch models and conceptual models.
My conceptual models represent intersections, layering, outbursts of energy and design, and intertwining. These models are the start of my investigation for a final concept for my project. The sketch models are showing ceiling height explorations, pathways leading to different areas, and hidden stairways allowing the users to have explore the space each and every day.
These are sketch models that show characteristics of intersections, layering, exploring, and fading away.
Different pathways lead to a complex, yet neat way of exploring the ideas of interests in the space.
This is representing the different ceiling heights of the spaces in comparison with the floor and walls.
Adding curvature to the walls in the space will allow for more detail and exploration throughout the space.
Stairways and different kinds of pathways behind walls and other structures will open up the space and allow for an ideal additive of exploration throughout the space.
Thank you for checking out my new blog page. Every Sunday by 5pm, I will have a new post on the life of my project. Until next Sunday the 1st of June, Enjoy!
