Student Designs

Room 1: Kaitlyn D’Orazio & Sasha Zebroff | Framework

This design draws on the power of frameworks as a catalyst for creativity, utilizing geometric shapes in furniture and millwork to represent stability and order in times of change. Anticipating the evolving physical & mental needs of professionals, the design places an emphasis on mindfulness by allowing employees to cultivate their own personal frameworks by providing adaptable technologies and the space to use them.

Room 2: Joshua Swanson & Hailey Bassiri | The Reorder Project
Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Inspired by the multi-functionality of a Swiss Army knife, The Reorder Project encourages physical movement and mindfulness with an adaptable design that can move and transform to suit a variety of workspaces. A simple, versatile layout uses partitions to allow for single group meetings, split-space dual group meetings, and a third function that can range from a climbing wall to a cozy lounge space depending on users’ needs.

Room 3: Vivien Tam | Hybrid Office Design
LaSalle College Vancouver

This Hybrid Office Design highlights the ever-growing importance of technology by featuring clean, simple elements to reduce distraction and encourage productivity. Drawing on the spirit of exploration characterized by a futuristic aircraft, this design addresses shifting modes of work while equipping workers with the tools to solve the problems of tomorrow and uncover new mysteries. 

Room 4: Jordana Dall’Igna, Julia Soares & Kimiya Khezri | Pixel
LaSalle College Vancouver

Pixel explores the limitless potential of togetherness by creating a collaborative, positive, and functional workplace for the interior design industry that extrapolates the limits between the physical and digital world. Welcoming professionals for both in-person and virtual meetings, Pixel uses bursts of vibrant colour and modular furniture to provide a comfortable, high-tech space that can double as a space to unwind and relax through team-oriented activities.

Student Challenge

What does the future of work look like? We challenged the next generation of interior designers to consider how these spaces might be brought to life, what purposes they might serve, and how they can contribute to a more balanced, productive future.
