Environmental Understanding As A Base For Design
Kemp, Pari Alyssa
Publication Date:


In the final year of the interior design program, I have had the chance to understand and apply evidence based design principles. How does ones' environment affect their time and wellbeing in an interior space? This final design project incorporates the use and understanding of research and market of the hotel industry to create a space that reflects the actual location of project: Charleston, South Carolina. The concept for this four-story boutique hotel was inspired by the coastal environment and the historic Port of Charleston. Incoporating bright and airy spaces, with the use of materials such as rope, burlap, and wooden decking, that help ground the space and further the concept of nautical elements. Guests can have an imersive experience in this space that leans toward an appreciation for the surrounding environment without recreating an actual port atmosphere. This final project at UF has helped me as an individual to understand environmental and branding design in the hospitality industry. ( en )
