Second year undergraduate Hospitality Space project consisting of over 8,000 square feet. As a student I was to choose a concept to build and expand off of for the creation of the lobby, restaurant, and spa of the hosipitality space. I choose Botanical Rejuvenation as my concept after getting inspriation from the vivid colors and shapes of fruits. The three required spaces were then broken down into three individual concepts; the lobby was the Papaya fruit, the restaurant was the Dragon fruit, and the spa was the Kiwi fruit.

Claiming space for living is more economical than adding space.  This is a great example of how we recently claimed a long concrete storage level and transformed it into an inviting, useful multi-purpose living area.  The challenges of the duct work in the ceiling worked to our advantage, creating opportunities for lighting and millwork, visually separating spaces.  It’s hard to believe that this space went from cement block and plastic containers to comfortable seating, kitchen, powder room, game table nook, storage, library and relaxation by the fire!
