The Lobby in Amalgamation Boutique Hotel

The concept for ODP’s future office space is the celebration of artful building technology. The firm’s goal is to create designs that embody the idea of art into their client's building by defining and integrating their ideas, goals, and culture into the space. The goal of the design was to create a work environment that celebrated its employees, customers and the vibrant culture of Miami.

Hello! I'm Stephanie, a graduate student at the Florida State University in the Interior Architecture and Design Program. Throughout my time in the IA&D program, my semester abroad in Italy, the graduate classes taken my senior year, along with my professional experiences, I've developed an undeniable passion for creating beautiful interiors. These experiences and many more have led me to develop a philosophy statement that influences my design decisions. The built environment is full of endless opportunities to enrich and enhance the lives of those within it. Design has the power to promote a healthy lifestyle, structure efficient workplace environments, and celebrate who we are as people. Environments should promote wellness through sustainable measures and human-centered design, all the while creating beautiful spaces that spark creativity and innovation. Interior design is when art meets the creation of life-changing experiences. Make the experience worth it. Design for transformations. Design for experiences. Design to celebrate people. As a designer, each of my projects begins in the hand sketching phase but are presented as digital computer-generated renderings. This style is effective for my work because it accurately represents the type of environment that I am working to create.
