Writing Outline and Narrative


University of Central Oklahoma

Question Description

This project provides an opportunity to continue to apply accessible and universal strategies to the conceptual design of a reception desk. The design will work in tandem with the commercial office project: “Not Your Mama’s Office Design.” Utilizing the floor and furniture plan created for the DF4 project, students will visualize a universally accessible reception desk that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and meets code requirements.

Research: Expand on the knowledge you learned in the design of a universal home. How would these concepts apply to the creation of office furniture? Are there currently existing guidelines in place for furniture? What are the components of a typical reception desk? Consider how accessibility, function, materials, finishes, and anthropometrics combine to create a concept. Organize your research into a written outline. Use it to compose a 300 word narrative to describe your concept and how it fits within the overall design for Teresa’s office.

- I have uploaded what I have written but there are some points I need to work on, so when you open the desk narrative file, you will find feedback from my professor so follow her feedback to fix the outline and the narrative but if you can start writing your own or if you think you need to fix and add some points that's fine too.

- I uploaded two images to get the wright dimensions for the reception desk. Also, there is a picture of the desk that I am going to have, so just to help you to know what I am doing.

- there is a concept statement that would help you too. But first read the feedback of my professor to understand what she wants when take a look on the concept statement file.

The standard measure of a reception table is 90-92cm in height and 100 cm in width. The height enables the seat to rotate freely without interfering with the accessories on the desk such as computers.
