Vance Chavis: Preliminary Design Sketches

These floor plan sketches were produced at the earliest stage of the design process. I found inspiration from my childhood school library, which had a partially enclosed "reading well" made up of wide, carpeted, curved steps that the students would sit on while the librarian would read a story. I loved this environment as a child and wanted to incorporate a similar space in our design.

At first we had placed the computer station in the center of the space, so for this design I considered computers on either side of the table separated by a low partition made up of colored 3form.

This is a birds eye perspective of the children's area early on in the design process. We were happy to see that much of this design made it through into the final design of the space.
