My Approach - Out of my research came a strong liking for the design and functionality of a luminaire called "Mesh" by Platek leading to its inclusion throughout the following design for its namesake, The Mesh Restaurant and Bar.

Finishes for Newly Built-out Office Suite
Gary Roof

Assignment Prompt - Your Design team has been hired to Add finishes to a newly built out office suite. For this assignment, you will specify Wall and Textile (Window treatments) Finish Materials, Flooring and Work Surfaces and create a Finish schedule and provide specifications for each finish, material or surface treatment that you have specified. Manufacturers specification sheets which will be organized in a binder to be included with your final presentation.

The final design solution will be creative, highly decorative and utilize your abilities in taste level, style, materiality and material appropriateness for use. Your design will be custom and highly detailed with a clear design direction/ concept. Choices must reflect a style direction and any historical or contemporary references.

My Approach – After reviewing various media and arriving at the images found on the following inspiration palette, One image…top row, second from the right…became a key element in my design. The Da Cheng Design Co., Fuzhau, China, utilized the Chinese concept of the courtyard house in the design of pitched roof volumes for meeting rooms and creative director offices. The pitched roof became a key design element in this project and is a play, on both my surname, Roof, and my firm name under1roof design. This choice provided the opportunity to expand my Revit skillset in creating the roof and ceiling elements as, in this project, the offices of the Principal Architect, the Principal Designer, and the Theatre are all housed in pitched roof volumes.
