From Existing to Concept to Creation


The original assignment was to create a to-scale floor plan of three rooms in your house. My floor only has four rooms, so it wasn’t that much of a stretch. That drawing is in the upper left, and it sparse since he told us not to include furniture.

We then had to create a floor plan of a home, the only rules being that I had to stay within the limits of the walls in the previous drawing. In the upper-right drawing, I freehanded what would go where. Since I could put anything I wanted, anywhere I wanted, I had a fun (yet difficult) time deciding what the house would look like.

However, theory is not always what happens in practice, as I learned from the final drawing at the bottom. Giving lengths to everything came after I made the concept design, so some things ended up not fitting. Indeed, the house ended up being fully furnished but very cramped.

But I like how it looks, and apparently my teacher did too. I handed it in two weeks late, which could have amounted to a maximum of seventy points taken off, yet that penalty was totally disregarded and I got a grade of 105. Score.
