This project was developed out of a year-long Enneagram course.
Initial designs were created for each type to capture the essence of the type in their fixation. We then did interviews with each type to get their feedback about what would work well for them in each design.
It was interesting to hear how some people had the items that were in the design for their type or some of the suggestions that could make their environment better.
These final designs are to show what a potential healthy space for each number could look like by pulling from their areas of growth.
A nonprofit organization working to provide relief, development, and peace by partnering with local churches and organizations around the world.
We reviewed the layout and found ways to maximize space while creating a more welcoming environment.
We added a seating area and hospitality area. Rearranged the cubicles, creating more space for individuals. One wall was painted the signature blue color.
Storage was moved out of the conference room to a back corner for increased function of both spaces.
A local nonprofit working on leadership development around the world.
The team needed more places for visiting staff to sit down and work and some added function to things around the office suite.
Most of the existing furniture in the space was repurposed for continued use. In an effort to increase sustainability some of the furniture was purchased from previous owners and refinished.
We created 3 additional workstations that also function as meeting spots which increase the flexibility and function of the space.
Having a welcoming space was important so we put together a seating area that allows visitors to relax while visually enjoying a display of items from around the globe.
Painted the space with brand colors, added a light filter for calmer lighting, some local wall decor, and organized supplies for a clear countertop.
To increase function knobs were added onto cabinets, and a lock for the single-occupancy bathroom that shows vacancy.
A nonprofit organization focused on serving children around the world needed an updated space.
We reduced wasted space, cleared out the clutter, and sold unused items. The project was structured to minimize disruptions to the workflow. The selections reflect the brand mission and culture while reusing many items that were already in the space to stay within budget and increase sustainability. The budget came from a tenant fit-out allowance and donations.
First Impressions are critical! This lobby area benefited from a custom desk, new lighting, new flooring and paint, a combination of thrifted and new wall decor, a gently used couch, and some plants. The chosen items highlight brand colors and the global and youthful mission.
New paint, new desk, custom wood valences, new lighting, and decor that reflects mission.

Pictures, renderings, and a concept boards from several different commercial projects.
A variety of clients and spaces are shown. A venture capital firm in NYC, a church in Mississippi, a breakroom concept for an international manufacturer (done in collaboration with GCI Design). Some of these projects are ongoing.
