UCBX design studio: BONEFLOWER FINAL

BONEFLOWER was designed as a Third Place in Downtown Oakland.  Its simple, hand-drawn vibe and Greek-stair styled inspiration and Parti design came on the heels of FLOWERCRAFT.

BONEFLOWER gave me a place to exercise restraint in both the interior architecture and in the presentation format.  I really grew to love this project. Its simplicity influenced the way I address clients’ lifestyle choices in my decluttering company, TurboTidy.com.

UCBX design studio: FLOWERCRAFT PROPOSAL

This project was designed to be a Third Place in downtown area of Oakland, an area that is undergoing transformation from abandoned to renewed. We were given the choice of developing a kitchen store, a bookstore, or a florist. I chose handcrafted paperflowers, calling my project FLOWERCRAFT. I loved the dark, bar-like vibe of the space and the story of the entrepreneurs behind it. My instructor did not. He thought it was too whimsical and too complicated. Taking that criticism into account, I resubmitted the proposal for Downtown Oakland’s Third Place as BONEFLOWER, which you can see here.

UCBX digital presentations: THE THINK HOUSE

This project was created for UCBX Digital Presentations in 2015.  The concept… create a space whose purpose is central to the design.  Set it on a real landscape… for me, this project was an opportunity to play the line between real and imagined.  It was fun to discover how to present the concept of “thinking” in a 2D architectural format.

THE THINK HOUSE is a Napa Valley Corporate Day Retreat for management teams to brainstorm on business problems in a non-business environment.  Modular, simple, in a sheltered space in a nature-driven setting.  The shelter was inspired by the Zollverein School of Management in Essen, Germany.
