CONCEPT STATEMENT

Rinn Foster is a music professional. She wants to renovate his


city loft to ft the futuristic date of 2024. She also has requested
that the space supports her love for music, more specifcally
inspired by the song Happy by Pharrell Williams. This song
mentions a hot air balloon. This will be emphasized in the space
by the lightweight, foating qualities of a balloon. New heights
and no limits will be emphasized in the lines, motions, and direction
throughout the design. The song is bouncy, yet smooth, and these
smooth and fun curves will be shown in the foor plan, walls, and
furniture. Pops of bright, happy colors will be shown throughout
the space.
PROBLEM STATEMENT

Rinn Foster is a music professional who wants to renovate his loft.
He wants the design to be centered on the song Happy by Pharrell
Williams and futuristic aspects. Problems to think about while designing
the space include, square footage, placement of doors and windows,
privacy, security, reduced energy consumption, biodiversity, and
convenience. The design has to ft within a specifc square footage as
well as work around doors and windows, which cannot be changed.
Privacy is a priority to any homeowner. The design should lend privacy
from within the loft as well as thinking about outside the loft. Energy
consumption and biodiversity are important to keep in mind for this
design. Convenience is an important factor in any home when thinking
about space planning.
