Design Guidelines: A Practical Guide To Preserving The Historic, Cultural, And Architectural Heritage Of Gladewater, Texas, Conor Herterich Aug 2018

Design Guidelines: A Practical Guide To Preserving The Historic, Cultural, And Architectural Heritage Of Gladewater, Texas, Conor Herterich

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

In October of 1930, Columbus Marion Joiner’s oil rig, “Daisy Bradford No. 3,” blew a gusher of oil high into the East Texas sky. The subsequent storm of economic activity that resulted from the discovery of the East Texas oilfield irrevocably changed the built environment of many small towns in the region, including Gladewater, Texas. Oil money that flowed into the city funded a flurry of building projects in the 1930s and 1940s that left an indelible mark on the landscape of Gladewater’s downtown area. Unfortunately, a lack of oversight, planning, and guidance has since led to the ...

Design Philosophy

You were designed to discover. If you never push your boundaries you will never learn to grow. Those that live in comfort are afraid to ever glow. Have faith in yourself and always know, “That faith, as small as a mustard seed can move a mountain.” So where will your journey go?

Interior design gives you the opportunity to express your creative ideas that are both multifunctional and comfortable to the client. I love exploring new methods and techniques that will grow my education in design. Seeing something that I took from a small idea and made it into something big that benefits both the client and me, is the greatest reward money can buy.

My Design Philosophy:

My philosophy in Interior Design is inspired by my experiences in travel and my hard-working nature. Nothing worthwhile in life can be achieved without persistence, hardwork, love, and passion. Opportunities to travel abroad in Japan and Europe have encouraged my wonder and awe in different cultures and their designs, influencing the way I look at space and form.

I also believe that for an interior designer to be successful, a designer must understand and form a bond of trust between themselves and their clients in order to create a functional, beautiful, and unique space that interprets their ...

Design Philosophy:

Interior design is more than just designing spaces that are going to be aesthetically pleasing. Interior design is about creating spaces that will work for everyone yet be unique and beautiful. It is about making an impact on people’s lives, whether it is for a few hours a day or for many years to come. It's gathering ideas and innovations to design a space to fit the purpose it's being designed for. It's critical thinking on how spaces will work for individuals, not only physically but also psychologically. Interior Designers know each interior space ...

Design Philosophy

IN THE WISE WORDS OF ROBIN SIEGERMAN, “DESIGN IS ABOUT MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY, EITHER FUNCTIONALLY, AESTHETICALLY OR EMOTIONALLY.” OUR PERSONAL SPACE CAN REFLECT WHAT WE FEEL ON THE INSIDE BUT ALSO WHO WE ARE AS PEOPLE. MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS TO CREATE AN AURA FROM WHICH NO INDIVIDUAL EVER WANTS TO ESCAPE. I WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS THROUGH SMART AND SIMPLE PLACEMENT OF SPACES, COLORS AND TEXTURES. I WANT EACH SPACE, HOME, AND OFFICE TO HAVE ITS OWN LIFE THAT EMBRACES THE HUMAN WHO OCCUPIES IT. MY DESIGNS WILL BE SIMPLE BUT SIGNIFICANT AND HARMONIZE THE MOOD WITH THE ...

Interior design is more than meets the eye; It has the power to change the world if done properly. That is why sustainability is such an important aspect to incorporate as much as possible.

My design philosophy is grounded in the idea that the final product should support a safe and healthy environment for whoever inhabits the space. Having a balance of functionality, comfort, and luxury is something I also strive for in all my designs.

Three factors inspire my design choices; The natural beauty of our world, the clients style, and the purpose for the space. These three factors ...

MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Midway through my college career, I began working as an assistant to an Independent Living Specialist. He is very active in assisting disabled individuals find and receive the resources they need to live independently. He had me drawing floor plans to show his disabled clients how to follow the concept of "Aging in Place." The concept basically means that a home should function for the length of a life, childhood to old age. By incorporating simple elements such as 3-foot doors, walls enforced for handrails, and at least one entrance without a step you can eliminate some ...

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Design is creating a space that is sustainable, serviceable, and stylish. Design reflects where clients have been and what inspires them. There are countless styles from which people may choose to reflect who they are. The designs must be innovative and efficient throughout the design process to manage client requests with good design practice. The result is a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing and functional but good for their health, and for the environment.

I value design as a tool to create spaces that help my client live more comfortable lives. First, I believe that to create a better tomorrow we need to construct sustainably today to preserve our remaining resources. Secondly, I believe that spaces should be designed universally so that they support the client throughout the lifespan. Lastly, I believe that both sustainable and universally designed spaces should reflect imagination and beauty; everyone is entitled to good design.

Philosophy Statement

In the creative side of the world, it is fairly common for one to be “innovatively altered” and “unusual” if a designer or an artist. As designers, we are imaginative individuals that recognize a level of emotion beyond the structure needed to design for function and safety. The strong connection to emotion is what compel us through our design process. Designers are alike for which we do not design for ourselves; we create for others. Some designers and artists may be “unusual” and “strangely different” but it is not a flaw. This is part of the individual nature ...

Design Philosophy

My, design philosophy is based on the belief that every space should reflect the needs and personality of those in it. A well-designed space should embody a timeless, functional design while having a unique interior that is comfortable, livable, and nurturing. Every space should include natural elements to express the nurturing qualities of the earth and should increase the mental and physical wellness of those occupying it. It is not enough to have a luxurious space; instead a well-designed interior must give the user a sense of comfort and livability along with being aesthetically beautiful. It is of ...

Design Philosophy

I believe that design should provide creative solutions to suit the needs of others. Designers should observe and understand the problems and approach it in a creative perspective. Not only should it be designed for present, but also the future. By thinking long term, I believe that a designer is preparing for what can happen. A well thought out design should be timeless yet be unique, functional and comfortable. I also believe that simplicity is key to design. Adding a lot of elements can overpower the main focus of the design. Designers should not only collaborate with other ...

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

"Interior Design is not always what we see on TV. The beauty of this career is much more than aesthetics like people think. Design is all about the process behind the results. Great design considers the function and human use. The future and sustainability should always be considered in design because the goal is to create spaces that can be used for years and years to come. To become a great designer, one must consider the wants of the client before the wants of oneself. As a designer, the goal is to design spaces that are livable and ...

I am hoping to pursue hospitality design so my personal design philosophy is to create a beautiful yet function environment that has the comfort of home combined with a ...
