Knight Abbey - The Knight Abbey Project involved the designing of a 14,000 square foot printing company in Biloxi, Ms. The project was divided up into teams for the programming and interviewing of the clients, while the actual space planning was done individually. The project was finally presented to the architectural firm at the conclusion of the semester. The project included a furniture plan, reflected ceiling plan, detailed raised flooring plan indicating power,communications, and underfloor air.
Knight Abbey - TeCrete Access Flooring is the perfect choice of flooring for commercial institutions because it offers unlimited flexibility, great acoustical qualities, and is extremely sustainable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. It is a raised floor panel system that combines the strength of steel and concrete to provide convenient access to underground electrical, and HVAC systems allowing one to freely rearrange their environment within minutes by simply removing one panel.
Mayfield Kitchen - Mayfield Kitchen is an entirely hand drafted project that used NKBA Standards and was designed to reflect the style of the location and owners of the home.
