Our final project of the semester was to design a mixed-used space at 106 Parrish st. in downtown Durham, NC. The first floor had to be a wine retail space and the upper two floors had to be apartments. Brittany and I decided to have 4 apartments to make better use of the space and to make them less expensive for the local buyers. Half of the first floor and half of the second floor are used for the wine bar retail space where there is a bar, a small kitchen, an event area for wine tastings and couches for comfortable seating arrangements. Our concept was a Bazaar and all of our design decisions were based on that.
Here is my final board for The Central Regional Hospital for the three pcu's. We presented them at the hospital to executives who work there and we got really good feedback. They loved our ideas. For mine, they really loved the furniture and the feel of nature coming indoors.
