fter conducting seven interviews with a variety of design firms, the Interior Design Project Sub-Committee (of Building and Grounds), that had been charged with the responsibility of selecting an Interior Designer, unanimously voted to present Joshua Shockley as its choice for the renovation project that will assess and then address changes to the main floor public spaces.
Josh’s passion for interior design is driven first and foremost by his desire to problem solve. When asked how he does what he does, Josh replied, “I ask myself how can I make a space feel brighter? How can I make a space feel safer? Exciting? Relaxing? This is paired with a genuine curiosity about people and their experiences - people aren’t just shells or bodies that interact with an interior. I believe they are collections of experiences that add to an interior and vice versa.”
Josh arrived one day last week with the beginnings of the process - samples! Renovated areas will include the entry, lobby, great room, dining room and pub, card room, and grand stairway up to the second floor. Style sheets will be presented to our residents in the next few months and work begins in early spring.
