WATERMARKE TOWER RESIDENTIAL SENIOR THESIS PROJECT

Towards the end of earning my Associate of Arts Degree in Interior Design (2015), I completed two large thesis projects (one residential and one commercial). This post will be dedicated to sharing a peek into the residential project that is partially responsible for my still recovering baggy eyes.

Let me know in the comment section below if you would be interested in seeing the second commercial space project.

Scope: Design a fully equipt apartment in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. 

Challenge: Propose a creative design solution for a young couple. The twist? One of the clients has a color vision deficiency, otherwise known as deuteranopia. This type of color blindness decreases one's ability to tell certain colors apart from one another, specifically causing a mix up of greens, reds, and yellows. 

Time frame: 10 weeks

Media: Adobe Photoshop, AutoCAD, Google Sketchup, and Shaderlight (Great SketchUp plug-in for rendering).

These "stools" are actually tables but I'm sure that with a custom request, these can be structurally modified to be a stool.

At the top right image of each board, you will see how the space would look like though the eyes of the client with the color vision deficiency. One of the biggest challenges was formulating a design that would not only appeal to the color deficient client but also to their partner who can see in full color.
