Tommy Larson Salon & Spa. designed by, amanda veliotis
completed May 2009
second semester freshman year for our final project, our media class was assigned to design a hair salon using sketchup. half way through the semester was the first time i had ever used sketchup, our teacher was assigned to teach the program to us but lets just say i pretty much had to teach it to myself. looking at the project now, as a sophomore, i would say the animation is very amateur; you walk through doors and walls, and too much time is spent on details. for being a freshman struggling with learning such a complex program such as sketchup for the first time, i would say i did a pretty good job; hence why i earned an A! take a look around, enjoy, tell me what you think. - av
inspiration. i wanted the salon to feel glamourous and elegant. i used many french couture elements. i also used fun materials such as the diamond sparkling floors and the rouged pink satin ceiling panels.
perspective of the main entrance. front desk, display shelves, and opening to salon stations is visible. ceiling above front desk is dropped approximately 2' to make the room feel as though it is separated from the waiting lounge directly across.
perspective of the salon stations. these custom designed salon stations consist of block dividers which support the damask style mirror and table; they also hide the support beams that lead to the ceiling. the support beams hold up custom fabricated armstrong ceiling panels; elegant black chandeliers then hang from the panels. when seated at a station, one will feel as though they are enclosed in their own world of glamour and elegance.
perspective of the the washing and drying stations. this area, directly across from the salon stations, is separated by curved half-walls made of pink stone tiles. the ceiling is also lowered here approximately 2' for an added sense of separation from the rest of the large room.
perspective of the washing and drying stations looking towards the salon stations.
perspective of the manicure and make-up stations. opening to the employees lounge is also visible.
perspective of the employee lounge. against the far back wall, painted in vertical stripes, is a small kitchen witch a high counter and bar stools. in the center of the room is seating for employee breaks and or meetings.
animation for tommy larson salon & spa. like i stated earlier, looking at the project now, as a sophomore, i would say the animation is very amateur; you walk through doors and walls, and too much time is spent on details. but, for being a freshman struggling with learning such a complex program such as sketchup for the first time, i would say i did a pretty good job; hence why i earned an A!
