Dr. Dane's Renovated Queen Anne House

Student: Kayla Carlson
Course: “Interior Design I”; DS 222
Program: Interior Design

This project consisted of a remodel of the first floor of a Queen Anne Victorian house; rooms that were updated included two offices, a physical therapy room, an exercise room, and a master suite. The client, a physical therapist named Claire Dane, needed a multi-functional space to cater to her clients’ needs as well as her own. The main issues related to design included preserving the historic charm of the client’s home while updating finishes and furniture; trying to utilize as many sustainable and low-to-no VOC materials as possible; and creating a functional spatial arrangement of furniture and equipment in all of the rooms. All of these needs were taken into consideration to create a healthy, eco-friendly environment that blends history with modernity.
