INDIVIDUAL NARRATIVE

All of our charrettes and designs have been centered around the 1950's. We assembled a book of designers, artists and architects that produced work in the 50's and we have drawn a lot of inspiration from that. I research Tina Lefer who was a fashion designer. She saw that there was a need for casual clothing for women because the home was becoming a more laid-back environment.
When designing the interior, exterior, and moment models, as a group, we considered a lot of different options. We wanted for our space to be open and inviting. We wanted to use curved lines inspired from the 1950's design. But most of all we wanted for the space to actually feel like a home.
