Currently in IARC 301{studio} the class visited a bungalow style house, that is owned by Cecilia Thompson. She allowed us to observe her house, and to use the layout for our next project, which was to design the dining room of the bungalow style house keeping in mind the Arts and Crafts period while keeping it a modern and current as well. Soon after arriving to the site, we got to meet Cecilia; and then we proceeded to take pictures and measure the exterior and interior of the home so that we could devise a floor plan and elevations for her. While looking around her house, Cecilia clearly had a modern, minimalist perspective with the design of her bungalow. Although I love that style, I knew that I wanted to design a dining room that would keep a few of her modern pieces at watch while adding style and trends from the arts and craft period. It was a great visit. It was really neat to view a bungalow house and observe the trends such as; built-ins, boxed rooms, and heavy trim all throughout the house itself.
