FIREHOUSE CONVERSION: Former Firehouse becomes an Accounting Office
This project challenged us to convert a former city firehouse to an accountant’s office featuring lobby/waiting areas, storage/copy room areas, a kitchen, a library/conference room, two offices, and an ADA compliant restroom. I enjoyed this project and created a 1/2″ scale model using foam board, chip board, fabric, acrylic, and printer paper.

This project challenged us to take our current classroom, gut anything non-load bearing, and create a mixed-use Retail/Service and Residential space. I choose to create an Acting Workshop and Voiceover Recording Studio, along with a one-bedroom/one-bath studio for the owner. Photos include slides made for a visual presentation.

This project challenged us to work with a client of our choosing and design an apartment that would bring them joy. My client was college age and wanted something that reminded her of her favorite beverage, pink lemonade. Note: Interior illustration outlines were provided by Interior Designer, Brian Kaneko. My work is the pastel, pencil, and marker rendering that illustrated the fabrics and other materials shown on the design boards articulating my design vision.

This lighting project challenged us to create a new coffee house concept in Downtown Los Angeles.

We were also challenged to create a working sconce for our space. I built a custom Art Nouveau sconce from chipboard, freezer paper, and craft paper.
