Transforming images of miscelanious objects into spaces

inhabiting people into our designs is an important part in interior design, as without human motion and interaction within the image, it is difficult for potential clients to understand the formality of the space. I.e for family occasions, the route of the space for instance where do people walk, sit, commute etc, and also most importantly the scale of the space, to show weather the structure is ten feet tall of simply a meter high, so it is very important that the scaling is correct.

Here are my variations in sketching figures, You can see i work well with a bubbled effect of the figure, but this is somewhat not appropriate for figures inhabiting a space, as they would be too visually busy and distract from the sketch.

Here we tested sketching the full figure in even less time, 4 seconds. I don’t feel these figure variations are very visually pleasing. It is sometimes difficult to discover your own style…

So in today’s lesson we practiced loosening up in drawing quick sketched figures. It was mostly about finding our own style of people. We sketched people walking sitting, and general motion, we found that experimenting with sketching at different speeds sometimes created a better form to represent motion for the human form.

Moving on, we looked at some close up images of miscellaneous objects such as a sack of coins and some paper archways, and used our creativity to create our own functional space. We had to design 4 different functional spaces, a bar, a hotel reception, a retail store and an Art gallery.

This is my first attempt to recreate a random image into an interior space. From one of the 4 chosen themes, I chose retail store, it is quite unclear as the photocopy was rather dark, but you can see I have created a two story essence, with open plan changing room areas, and a downstairs space to ponder and look over items.

My hotel reception design is a step in the right direction from the previous design. This design is clearer and I believe a viewer could predict what the space was being used for. Also I feel I have captures the glass material at the back of the reception well with a few simple marks.

My personal favourite of the 4 sketches is my bar design. I worked on this image upside down as a challenge for myself and I feel it worked well. The high ceilings in this bar would suggest a place of expense, giving the space great opportunity for dance lighting and special features being the large solid structures formatted in a random maze like order.

My art gallery design I also drew upon upside down. I wanted to use the flat plane of the image as a roof to uniquely hang the pieces of art from, instead of on the walls. I feel this mimics the organic flow of the room which in tern makes for an interesting space. I used some coloured tissue paper to simply define where the art would stand on this black and white production.

In conclusion, my first attempt on the retail store  was too dark and my thick marker pen merged too much with the underlying image, so the over all quality was not so good. Also, for my first design I did not expect the best, however as I worked through the 4 images I felt my design streak improving, as I engaged my design thinking I was able to look at the images from different perspectives and gain an interesting, functional and quite realistic space.

For the homework task we were given a self directed task of photographing an object of our choice and to draw upon it our own space.

I begun with two separate images of kitchen appliances, one being a cup stand and the other some dishes in the sink. Inspiration did not come to me separately for these images but instead  decided to push a little further and create a design that included both of them.

My design is a shopping mall scene that has escalators onto upper and lower levels. The lower levels being the check out and lounge area and the upper levels for browsing watches in a unique environment. I added clock faces into small aspects of the design to tie in with the theme. I also tried to keep it sophisticated by not over working the upper level. Downstairs also has a mix and match section for the watches which enables buyers to personalize their time tellers to suit their needs. This is where designing for purpose comes in.

Another task was to produce a sculpture based on either the clock or perfume shop design. Using corrigated card we were asked to design an interior space, then to sketch on top to add creative visuals.

So here I produced a mostly 2 dimensional form so that I could sketch vertically on top to add walls and separations. I created an archway for an entrance, I added a circular shape with the intentions of adding clock faces to tie together the theme of the interior. I also added raised floor features, but with little intention of what to do with them, as I struggled to figure out the scale of the model and figured I would gain scale inspiration once I drew upon the design. I glued my pieces together using Yuhuu glue, and I cut out the spherical sections using a compass set and Stanley knife.

Here you can see I created some elevated space booths to view individual brand of watches.  I belie e the isolation of the spaces and the circulating shape en-wraps you in the watch designs which creates more of a connection with the items. Also I added a rotating cylinder filled with watches but to catch customers eyes in to the shop I installed a fish tank in the center and have the most desirable and popular watches around it.
