my role

Artist's Alley Design & Programming

Worked with breakout team of 3 to identify the best use of the Artist's Alley space, ideating programming opportunities, local art showcasing, pocket rooms, grab-and-go market, and lounge space. Our goal was to find a balance of meeting Colite City's and future vendor needs while also considering resident and worker intrigue, excitement, and inspiration.

Research into Colite History

A surpise and delight project was the Archive Hallway - a space meant to celebrate the history of the building, Colite Industries, as a reflection on where Colite City has been and where it is going. We acquired historical documents, photos, and design pamphlets, visited the site of Colite City and explored Columbia, South Carolina, to understand the need for a live, work, play community in Columbia. 

Collage Renders
