Presentation of work at Harvard University

I received amazing news this week.  While at the Green Mountain Ranch Fellowship, I gave a presentation on a universally designed project that my firm Inside Inc. completed.  I was assisted in the creation of this lecture by Amy Roehl, Associate Professor at TCU and a valued colleague.  Amy was the videographer.  Cynthia Leibrock, the fellowship leader and respected researcher, practitioner, and author in the field, has asked to utilize the presentation in a course that she teaches at Harvard next week!

I can't think of many things that would excite me more ..... except  that she has invited me to be a guest lecturer in the Harvard course next year.

Work In Progress

Exciting work is underway for our Omni Residences project.  At our last consultation with our client we reviewed initial schematic options for the color and fabric palette.  Depending on the calibration of your computer monitor, the colors include greys, soft green-greys, acid yellow-green, charcoal, and char-browns.  We are beginning the next phase now of refining the selections and choosing furnishings and interior materials for a cohesive design.  It is going to be stunning!  My design team has helped so much in pulling products and creating digital drawings.  My appreciation goes to the following designers/architect:  Jo Bryan, RID, Mary Cole, Andrea Becerra and Mike Shannon, RA - kudos to you all!

View from the balcony at Omni Residence

Isn't this view amazing?!  We are continuing to develop the design for our client's interiors.  This incredible view will be present everyday alongside our interior design.  We are working to make the interiors just as stunning as the exterior view - we have quite a challenge ahead!!

TCU Interior Design Semester Completed

Check out 3rd year student Rachel Frazier's project completed as a learning exercise in Photoshop & InDesign.  The interior renderings and the floor plan and furniture arrangement were completed in another class last semester.  This semester the students rendered the plan and elevations with materials using Photoshop, and composed the board using InDesign.  Great job.  Rachel!
