Congratulations to "C3" for winning the Dranoff Goes Green design contest. Members of this team include Courtney Robinson, Candace Spence and Christine Murray. Their design will be installed into the Hospitality Suite at 777 South Broad in February, with the first showing to the public at our Ribbon Cutting in March 2010.
This is our team Sophista-Phunk at the final with our boards ready to present to the jury. Although we did not win the competition, we are very pleased to have been able to work on this project and impressed with every teams results.
We have completed a two bedroom unit on the 2nd floor of the building similar to the one you are designing. All finishes have been installed installed. If any team would like to walk through the unit, please contact Melissa Ware at our leasing office at (215) 772-0777 to schedule a time for your visit.
Hello hello! Team Lux (Diana Dougherty, Ashleigh Bradshaw, and Giselle Hipkins) wanted to share what was presented at the midterm. Here are two of our boards that show the Master Bedroom and Living Room. Don't forget our concept is sustainable luxury! We feel the concept is exhibited in our furniture selections and custom pieces like the wine storage under the bar height counter in the kitchen and the hanging crystals behind the master bed. The crystals are lit from above in an upholstered cornice! We think these spaces are fabulous. What do you think?
This fall, undergraduate interior design students at Drexel University are embarking on a term-long challenge to design the ultimate green living space for the hospitality suite at Dranoff Properties’ LEED-registered 777 South Broad.This Blog is designed to help students share their experience designing the ultimate green living space.
Throughout the class, professionals in the field of green building, construction, interior design and project management will serve as a panel of advisors. Advisors will guide site tours, provide site plans and renderings, offer professional design consultation, and provide vendor contacts. At the end of the semester, students will present their plans to the jury. Submissions will be judged for suitability of design to the project challenge, originality of design solution, and successful integration of interior finishes and furnishings. Winners will be announced in December. Students will receive class credit and a grade for their participation.
