During my internship, I worked on concrete projects in interior architecture. I especially worked on the refurbishment of the attic of a big house, which was meant to become the bedrooms and private space of two teenage boys, and then become an independent flat after they left.
I therefore created a small kitchen, a living room for relaxation and two bedrooms of similar size. The difficulties mainly came from the numerous beams, the few windows which had to be equally dispatched and the very steep roof slope, which drastically reduced the useable space.
I enjoyed this project because Agathe Erb trusted me, and I had an important responsibility in the work: I was able to propose different ideas to the clients and get their feedback.
During my work placement, I worked on the creation of some bedrooms for an important hotel**** in Strasbourg : its high quality services created specific constraints, and it enabled me to discover a new sort of demand.
I worked on the refurbishment of a part of the third floor : I created two comfortable bedrooms in a corner of the floor. The rest of the floor did not need to be worked on.
I created a presentation for this project, with detailed plans, elevations and perspectives.
For my course, I am doing a 2 months work placement at ae-design agency. It is a small agency in Strasbourg, France, directed by Agathe Erb.
It is an interior architecture agency. She works on private dwellings, shops and offices or restaurants, in Strasbourg and in the towns around.
As she works alone, I have the opportunity to work closily with her and follow her on her site visits. She also gives me projects to do, which is very exciting, and I have the opportunity to work on Photoshop, Autocad and SketchUp.
My first job was to create a postcard. As it is summer, the idea is to create a little post card to make publicity for the agency : on one side, a collection of her most representative work, and on the other, a little message and her coordinates.
The post card was sent to her previous clients, as a reminder and a thanks, and also to potential clients : shops, offices, restaurants. Under Agathe Erb’s directions and advice, I used pictures she had taken of her finished works and I used Photoshop and Indesign to create the postcard.
