ASSIGNMENT

The subject was a 1920’s Mediterranean revival style home that has since been renovated, added on to and converted into tenant space for local businesses. The task at hand was to redesign both the exterior façade and interior space for a family of five, and revert the space back to its original purpose of a single-family dwelling.

INSPIRATIONAL GOAL

To inspire a young family to build strong bonds, cultivate personalities, and grow and flourish in the many years to come.

CONCEPT STATEMENT

The design concept incorporates (1) enhancing the historical character of the Mediterranean revival style architecture, (2) opening up the common spaces with an elegant and informal floor plan, and (3) personalizing private spaces such as bedrooms and bathrooms for individual inhabitants. The Mediterranean revival style and the open floor plan work together to create an environment that welcomes guests and residents to gather and socialize in the common areas. The private residential areas allow family members to express their own identity through a personalized living space.

DESIGN SOLUTION
  • Mediterranean style to convey a feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life through a connection with the old world
  • Asymmetrical floor plan and high ceilings to inspire creativity
  • Gathering areas tangent to circulation patterns to increase socialization among the residents
  • Private retreats are designed to encourage emotional and intellectual development
  • Live plants and natural light flow through the space to introduce positive moods, reduce stress and replenish mental energy
  • Natural materials and a cool color pallet to provide a calming and relaxing setting
Methods
  • In-depth client analysis
