Our goal for this project is to restore it back to something of beauty and resonates with the past. My design concept is a reverberation soundwave. I chose this for its ability to harken back to its past. I want to bring back the mezzanine level that was once a beautiful design gesture that suggested an open airy environment.
A few design elements were needed to complete the project. These elements consist of the basement and first three floors to contain a restaurant, retail space, and office spaces; floors four through nine are considered residential. For this design, I wanted to select a clientele of young professionals due to the rising demand for jobs and residential space. Here are a few precedent images that illustrate the beginning process of the Southeastern Building.
Here are a couple site diagramming images showing the context and proximity.
