Gunther's was designed for a busy tourist neighbourhood in Vancouver, BC. It embodies a modern yet eclectic vibe focused on providing comfort for its patrons. An overall biophilic atmosphere aims to uplift while groupings of colourful sofas and chairs provide a "living room" feel. There is a sectioned off area for playing board games with friends, a small stage for live performers, and a large patio for sipping lattes and watching the hustle and bustle of people going about their day. The concrete floors, black and white background theme, and natural woods add the modern elements to this eclectic coffee house.

This upscale hotel lobby, created with the use of 3ds Max, has white marble floors with black marble inlay that ties in with to the black marble walls. Behind the white corian and gold concierge desk is a concrete and moss waterfall wall with gold plated stainless steel sculptural elements. There is a concrete fountain in the center of the lobby that provides another soothing element for guests. It is highlighted by the large chandelier hanging directly above which is encircled by gold baffles for stylish sound attenuation. Gold sconces line the outside walls adding to the ambiance of the lobby while globe pendant lights hang above the seating areas and provide task lighting over the reception desk. The comfortable hotel seating is stylish enough to fit in yet understated enough to let rest the lobby steal the show.

This coffee house, located in the popular neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant in Vancouver, BC was designed with a modern eclectic vibe. Large and spacious to allow for the influx of patrons during popular performances, the black and white theme, concrete floors, and black frame windows lend to current modern trends. The mismatched colourful interior furniture, rugs used to define seating areas, and the mismatched lighting add an eclectic feel. The plants overhead bring in a biophilic element giving the illusion of being under a canopy of green in this open space which carries out to the patio to tie the indoor and outdoor spaces together. Every area was designed with intent. Whether you are hanging out indoors to listen to the regular entertainment, sitting at the coffee bar to visit with the baristas, playing games with friends over in the games section, or visiting out on the patio over lattes and good conversation, you will feel right at home here.

Located in the neighbourhood of Jumeriah, Dubai, Luxe Palm is designed with luxury in mind. With the use of marble on the floors and walls, emerald green glass and tiles, gold accents and large, stunning chandeliers, the lobby and restaurant on the main are meant to wow you as soon as you enter. The plants that cascade down the windows on this first floor provide a biophilic element and a natural shade from the sun which only adds to the beauty of the space. The marble, gold accents, and biophilic design continues up all 6 floors as you step out of the elevators. On the second floor you also find an ample sized board room for business on company retreats, a gym for guests to access at their leisure, and a world-class spa. The spa has concrete and natural wood elements as well as a green wall and plants cascading down the walls along the hallways. A waterfall wall located in the waiting area adds to the serene feel of the space. The upper 4 floors are for the guest rooms and suites. Each room has a view with the corner rooms having a balcony for guest enjoyment. The rooms are decked out with neutral colours mixed in with blacks and accents of gold. Modern luxury to help guests feel like they never want to leave.
