    INTRODUCTION:SYNERGY will be a coworking and community oriented space that

    will aid in the regeneration of Lansing, MI. The incorporation of inter-active spaces such as a daycare center, public forum, work cafe and

    art gallery allow this space to be a meeting spot between the resi-dential and commercial facets of Michigan's Capitol. The design pro-motes growth on an individual and community level by encouraging personal development and synergistic relationships between users.

    Designed with the intent to expand, various spaces were included to attract future clients from every market.

    INTRODUCTION:RAW holistic healing center will be inspired by the life cycle. It will be

    a space that allows users to grow and be born again through harmoni-zation of the mind, body and spirit. The facility will attract people who are trying to better themselves and their overall well being. RAW will

    allow people to practice optimism and reflect it in their daily lives. The space will resemble a forest post rain; where everything is exposed,

    refreshed and vibrant.

  • RAWholistic healing center PROJECT RESEARCH

    Healing is not the same as curing. The concept of healing is more about the process of harmonizing the mind,body, and spirit. It is about living in peace with yourself and your surroundings. People can be healed even if they are not cured.

    DESIGN ISSUES:

    Health Care costs are climbing and non-traditional alternatives are being considered as heathful op-tions. The diseases we face today are related to the environments we've designed. The current designs of our communities, buildings and lifestyles have creaed new health issues. Typically when people focus on personal well being they focus on either phyical or mental health; not the two in tadem.

    SPACE PLANNING

    brain spaces: used to energize & exercise the mind.

    body spaces: used to energize & exercise the body.

    spiritual spaces: used to interconnect mind & body.

    social spaces: used to interconnect people & place.

    FITNESS CENTER PERSPECTIVE

    Healing gardens can provide relief from psychological distress and create an improved sense of well being. They should "comfort the soul and re-new the spirit." Anti-depressive properties are associated with physical exercise. Positive effects associated with physical exercise can be further

    influenced & enhanced with a balanced diet.

    Our experiences of interior spaces can be influenced by our own interior environment. Every space we encounter can have an affect on our beliefs, attitudes, memories and well being. RAW will be a space that gives people opportunities to positively impact their mind, body and spirit.

    COMPLETION: Fall 2015

    INTRODUCTION:NEXT will be inspired by an ecosystem. Similar to a

    co-working space, an ecosystem is a community that connects living things to their physical environment. No matter how big or small an organism is, it's existence is vital to the survival of the ecosystem as a whole. NEXT

    understands that each type of worker is essential to innovation and creation. It will supply the appropriate

    resources and spaces that both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs need to cultivate.

    INTRODUCTION:LOVING WINGS birthing center will be a retreat for women in

    labor. A Zen color palette will make this space relaxing for mothers, families and employees to encourage a stress free la-bor. The earths elements are maximized to create a space that

    has exceptional daylighting and views of the outdoors. Thor-ough research of ADA codes and suitable materials will ensure

    a durable and universal design; creating a space that will be comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.

    INTRODUCTION:THE NEST will be a cafe that encourages community

    growth and involvement within the city of St. Johns, MI. The facility will positively impact each leg of the triple

    bottom line; profit, people and planet. A small plinth will invite local poets and musicians to share their talents.

    Certified materials, furnishings, and equipment will positively impact indoor environmental quality to as-

    sure a healthy environment for workers and customers. Sustainable practices will be encouraged through the inclusion of recycling bins and exterior bike racks. By selling local art and coffee, the facility will provide the

    ideal closed loop system in small town St. Johns.

    TEAM DEVELOPMENT: Individual COMPLETION: Spring 2015

    INTRODUCTION:POUR ME ANOTHER will be an energy efficient luminaire collection

    designed for a wine bar and vineyard. The collection contains two surface mount fixtures; a pendant and sconce. This practical and func-

    tional design solution integrates the fixture into the bar itself. These contemporary luminaires will draw particular attention to connections

    between light, space, people and wine. Through simple lines and natu-ral forms, the Pour Me Another luminaire collection will be a signature

    piece in any space.

    DESIGN GOALS:

    durable materials

    multi- functional energyefficient

    sustainability

  • OLED sheets will be used to illuminate the fixture and provide both ambient and task lighting. The pendant will function not only as a light, but as a palce to store wine to enhance function and efficiency of the space. Due to its ability to stay cool, OLED lighting will not disturb the taste or age of the wine. An aluminum frame will make the fix-ture lightweight yet durable and FSC certified wood will encourage sustainable harvesting and conservation of

    natural resources.

    PROJECT: Professional Experience DESIGN PHASE: Construction Bidding

    TECHNOLOGY: AutoCAD, SketchUp, Shaderlight, Photoshop COMPLETION: Summer 2016

    INTRODUCTION:NISBET BUILDING houses the Human Resources department at Michigan State University. Their current office is too small to meet

    the clients needs and employees comfort. Multiple conference rooms, a kitchenette, printer and copier space as well as open

    office layout will be included in this office design renovation.

    INVOLVEMENT:AS AN INTERN, I was involved in this project from conception to construction. I created many of the construction documents, designed the kitchenette, selected equipment and aided in the selection of finishes. By attending client meetings I was able to
