My interest in the design of residential interiors from an early age led me to the Interior Design Program. The program has nurtured my skills in areas of digital drafting and rendering techniques, that focus on industry standard software such as AutoCAD, Revit, and Sketchup. Long-term goals include starting my own design firm that will specialize in high-end luxury residential design.

Project Overview

Located in the Town of Riverside Toronto. Enso Suites is a Boutique Hotel designed to promote human interaction and connection. Enso Suites uses technology to provide automated self-serve capabilities to deliver an enhanced end user experience through experiential design elements. Guests are prompted through a QR code to install a custom app that allows full control of the suite along with other amenities.

Concept/Design Process

Enso Suites is a boutique hotel created with the intent of implementing Experiential Design elements, through technology, circular shapes, and materials to promote Human interaction and connection. “In Zen, ensō (円相, "circular form") is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create”

Floor Plans

The main floor is designed to encourage interaction between guests. The lobby, self check-in lounge, breakfast café, and restaurant are all located on the main floor. The second floor is used for private hotel suites and a small lounge for guests to frequent. The majority of the basement is used for hotel maintenance and storage; the event space can be reserved to host small gatherings, meetings etc.
