The goal of this project was to create my ideal escape place with only 500-700 sqft. While I loved growing up in New York City, I often felt like I did not have a lot of opportunities to explore nature. Therefore, I ensured that my escape place was in a setting far away from ambulance sirens, crowded streets, and traffic. Not only did I want to build a place of relaxation, but also somewhere that could boost my creative thinking.

With this in mind, I used Revit to design Roundabout–a modernized studio space that fosters creativity and productivity. This minimal and rustic environment is intended to help me accomplish my work most efficiently and stay open-minded. The space contains a desk, a circular sofa, a kitchenette, a loft with a bed and bathroom, and storage space.

A key component of this space is the wooden sliding wall that opens up the entire space, allowing me to feel practically outdoors while working and relaxing. Natural light is a key feature as it proves to have many work and health benefits. While looking at the beautiful view, I would sit at my 360o counter that includes a workspace, storage, a sink, a stovetop, a mini-fridge, and bar seating. I wanted this counter to be multifunctional so I could maximize my time spent here, i.e. cooking a meal while working. The counter is concentric with the circular sofa, which is designated for relaxation time in between periods of work.

I wanted to incorporate a blend of natural materials and modern, bright materials. This is because I wanted the space to feel uplifting, inspiring, and homey, but not too homey. The acrylic drop ceiling panels are red, green, and blue, to signify the primary colors in additive color synthesis. As I designer, I am very familiar with working in RGB. Surrounding myself with these three colors represents the idea that I have all the tools–red, green, and blue–to create whatever I want to create.
