Sophomore year in the Interior Design program at LSU is when we first start actual design projects. Before that, we’re required to take art classes and a hand drafting class in order to apply for the program.
Our fall semester sophomore project was a retail store in the Perkins Rowe development in Baton Rouge. The store was going to have clothing for young professional women. I wanted to create a space that felt elegant and modern and was appropriate for the type of consumer it would be serving. For this project we hand rendered the floor plan and images that supported our design solution.
