Holley Bakich Interior Design Presentation Boards
I did both sets of boards shown on this page for classes at Mount Mary College. The individual renderings used on these boards can be found on my renderings page. Click on the small images to see larger versions.


The boards below were produced for my Residential Studio Class. The assignment was to design a family home going for LEED certification. The focus of the project was to research and specify environmentally friendly finishes and furniture. The theme I used was one of the use of global design in sophisticated and surprising ways to point out the fact that environmentalism is not just a local issue, but one that effects the entire world. All specified wood is from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forests or local lumbermen who cull managed forests (which Wisconsin has plenty of). Most of the furniture is from Cisco Brothers who have a Green Inside program that uses FSC wood and natural materials. All glass tiles are recycled, and all textiles have various "green" qualities.

The renderings below were also produced for my Residential Studio Class. This assignment was to create a condo floor plan focusing on design for ADA compliance. Each class member had to decide on what disability to cater to, and I chose to design for young, recently wheel-chair bound people. The design theme was one of natural forces like volcanic eruptions, astronomical phenomena, the power of water (as found in waterfalls), and the strength and resiliency of trees. For someone unexpected bound to a wheelchair by an accident or by illness, it must seem a bit like a natural disaster. But, these forces are not only destructive, but also constructive, allowing for growth, change, and strength. Because the building in question also had up-front office space, a center for support of the building's residents was designed to provide seminars, learning, support, and socializing spaces. For the floor plan, I tried to provide plenty of space between furniture for wheelchair movement. Cork was used throughout for its resiliency, sound absorption properties, and ease of rolling a wheelchair over. In the kitchen and bathroom, tile was used for its water resistance and durability. The bathroom shower is roll in with linear drains and also provided a fold-down seat if desired. The kitchen was especially engineered with plenty of space under cabinets to wheel under, countertop cabinets for ease of reach, and a large pantry area to make up for the loss of under-counter storage.
