I finally finished my two studio projects for this semester! Our TXMI 5330 Advanced Computer Aided Residential Design class conjoined with our TXMI 4380 Interior Textiles class to make one HUGE project. We were given the shell of a three story beach house in Kiawah Island, South Carolina that our clients, The Rochesters, bought as their second home. “They” wanted something more contemporary than their primary residence in Atlanta, but still comfortable and livable to accommodate frequent guests and entertain often. For studio, we built all the construction documents, while for the fabrics class we chose all the interior materials, furniture and accessories, calculated wallpaper and window treatments, designed custom flooring and cabinetry, all while staying within budget. Who knew money could be spent that quickly.


If you remember my past post Best of the Bunch, I ended up choosing the third board, Create a Life of Simplicity, for the overall concept of the beach house:



Here are my final presentation boards:

For these boards, I used Revit, Photoshop, and InDesign

Now the drawings:

These construction documents were all created on Revit. This was my first project to do entirely on Revit, and I have to say I like it a bit more than AutoCAD.

Hope you liked it!
