Thesis Project:  Office Space Meets Universal Design – The Newmark Building, Salem, MA

Newmark Building Perspective Drawing - Second Floor

The culmination of my Master’s program was my design for a 13,000 square foot office space, for a software design company, reflecting Universal Design principles, as well as green design, an open plan and other considerations.

I used an existing building and office space in Salem, MA – The Newmark Building in downtown Salem; the second and third floors.
