Project Spotlight: Chartway, Within Interior Design

Project Spotlight: Chartway, Within Interior Design

Often in our industry, we do not always get to see the outcome of our efforts before our client has reoccupied the space with their business and personal belongings. So, recently, when we came across Within Interior Design’s impressive installation shots of the Chartway Federal Credit Union project, we thought it would be fun to share with our IIDA members! Within Interior Design was commissioned by the client to provide a solution for the new corporate office building opposite of the old location’s traditional private offices, which featured high workstation panels, long corridors and minimal daylight. The goal was to re-brand their image through re-defining their space. They began with this custom reception desk in the executive suite on the 4th floor which took home Honorable Mention at this year’s Interior Design Excellence Awards! The custom piece was fabricated by M.R. Dishman & Sons. Chartway was so pleased with the previous renovations and design, they continued on in partnership with Within Interior Design to start on the third floor design concepts. Through the removal of existing...

Unique temporary design build at local Fredericksburg, VA restaurant!

If you’ve visited Fredericksburg, Virginia, during your travels, you may have stopped for a bite to eat at the popular venue FOODE, a happening lunch and dinner spot amongst many in Old Town Fredericksburg. As any business, there is always the challenge followed by strategy to separate your company from others in categories such as product, design, atmosphere, and, of course, the overall satisfaction of your patrons. Approximately four years ago, when presented with the threat of the summer months becoming too hot and uncomfortable for their beloved locals and tourists to enjoy the charming yet narrow, uncovered patio, Foode thought outside the box…What to do, what to do?! They reached out to a neighborhood design firm, Spaces Design Studio, LLC, to provide a design/build solution that not only helps provide a shaded, enjoyable dining area, but one that also brings a unique experience to their customers. Luckily, the creative team at Spaces Design went straight to work, from brainstorming ideas, drawings, trial and error, right down to the very installation itself. This started in...

Industry Designer Jackie Tugman taking design to the streets, literally!

What is industry member Jackie Tugman doing in her spare time, you ask?! Designing her second Norfolk parklet. Now, you wonder… What in the world is a parklet!?! A parklet is a small, additional space constructed in the street to be used by people. It is an extension of the sidewalk, another place to gather, rest, take a phone call, read a book, eat lunch, and appreciate your city surroundings. In some cases, a parklet is not meant to accommodate people; it may provide house for greenery, art, or some other visual amenity instead. Whether occupied or not, the parklet also serves as a representation of art and design. This design build project is meant to add value to the city providing additional public space on our busy retail streets or in commercial areas. Jackie, interior designer at Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas, and Carl Romulus, an industrial designer, accepted the city’s challenge last year to design, raise funds, and build a mini park within two months. After hours of planning and design, long nights in the shop, a few days...
