MHAworks Collaborates with ECU Interior Design Students
February 12th, 2018
MHAworks has recently collaborated with students of East Carolina University’s interior design program by participating in a semester-long project that will teach students about field verification and the realities of working with project owners.
In January, ECU students traveled to the Durham office where they were first introduced to the assignment. The assignment, which uses 320 Roney Street in Durham as a prototype, is to verify a site, document preexisting conditions and to prepare visioning documentation and a space plan incorporating program elements. The exercise, which serves as a simulation of a real transaction between project owner and interior designer, will equip students with knowledge of how to consolidate the owners’ wants and needs with the possibilities of an existing structure, as well as how to design and outfit a multi-functional space.
This month, Jennifer Turner traveled to Greenville to serve as a guest lecturer for the next phase of the semester project. She says, “the students are going an incredible job incorporating programming information and creative solutions in their plans.” MHAworks will continue to collaborate with students through the end of the semester in April.
