T3N Concepts Proposal Process for CCED Design

The name of our group is T3N Concepts and we were asked to design a space for the design center CCED. The space that we chose was the west studio in the IARC Building at UNCG in Greensboro, NC. It is about a 900 sq ft space with the west wall being comprised of mostly windows. We thought this would be a good space for several reasons, but the main one being that because it is such a large space there would be more ideas we could explore and try implementing.

We looked at several precedents to inspire our design choices:

We really loved the Eames chair and rocker. We also like the natural and bright open area. Our original concept was to design a space that supports both a high energy environment and dedication to service within a modern aesthetic, but later that was simplified to a leaf. Primarily the color, the lines, and curves of a leaf.

At first we thought we would try to use the entire space:

After a few critiques and group brainstorming we decided to use only half of the space and really simplify our design, saving the other 300 sq ft for a phase II expansion option in the future. We also decided to utilize some of the areas that were already available within the building such as a conference room and bathrooms.

Our final presentation and rendered views are as follows:
