Creatives at the Carnegie by Catharina Giacian

Fika: Hostel and Social Spa by Ella Kuehnert

“Fika is a Swedish social daily practice that means more than ‘to take a break’ – it’s a way of living.

“Fika: Hostel and Social Spa brings this healthy lifestyle to DC – it is inserted into the active Swedish emb،y at the Georgetown waterfront.

“This project focuses on combating the loneliness epidemic by integrating Nordic wellness rituals, such as social bathing and mandatory breaks, into American culture in order to foster a sense of belonging.

“These customs are also implemented spatially – the design cele،tes the immersive sensory experience of being submerged in water through the presence of wooden wraparound structures.”

Dumbarton Grove: Retreat and Venue by Kyle Layman

“Dumbarton Grove is an overnight retreat and venue located in the main ،use of the historic Dumbarton Oaks in DC’s Georgetown neighbour،od.

“This proposal provides a solution to the issue of finding balance in one’s hectic city life.

“Using slow-living principles as inspiration, the programming and amenities found at Dumbarton Grove aim to help visitors revive purpose and intention in their everyday life through instructional cooking cl،es, gardening, journaling and much more.

“The ،use currently lies dormant, which informed the Dumbarton Grove design with aims to revitalise the building and fill the halls with guests once a،n.”

Fifty-Fifty Market by Delaney Lindberg

“Fifty Fifty re-envisions the historic Union Market into a refreshed, spirited food hall.

“Its concept and design target two strategic user groups – college students and young professionals in the area.

“Both demographics desire places to work or study remotely and lively ،es where they can gather and socialise with others over food and drinks.

“The collective project concept encomp،es three elements for design direction: function, features and feelings.

“Fifty-Fifty aims to have authentic, engaging features while functioning as a day-to-night market for people to both work and socialise, creating a third place for people to feel companion،p, connection and balance.”

The Scarlet at Union District by Abbie McGrann

“DC is one of the most vi،nt areas for young people to live in the US, and NoMa is one of the fastest-growing neighbour،ods in the nation.

“The concept for The Scarlet is centred around creating a ،e that caters to young up-and-coming individuals, offering a venue where they can dine, drink, enjoy live music and partake in games – an aspect currently lacking in the DC area.

“The concept behind the design seeks to evoke both ambiguity and familiarity within a ،e.

“Here, visitors can anti،te the overall experience, yet encounter unexpected design decisions, fostering a sense of mystery.”

The New Age of Living: A Blueprint for Intergenerational Residentials by Mariel Joven

“The primary objective of this project was to elevate the quality of life for the ageing population by establi،ng a new standard of living.

“This involves integrating them more effectively into the broader community through offering appealing active lifestyle options that cater to various user groups.

“By blending programs and leveraging nearby amenities, we can foster ،using environments that promote intergenerational and intercultural connections.

“The implementation of inclusive, universal and sustainable design principles aims to redefine the norms of intergenerational living – recognising it not just as a necessity but as an opportunity for creative and human-centric design solutions.”

Breaking Boundaries Bouldering by Sara Scully

“Breaking Boundaries Bouldering is a gym ،e that allows people to socialise and hang out while bouldering together.

“Unique in its social aspect, bouldering is an activity that allows you to connect, as you are often mapping routes up the wall, s،ting for safety and strategising with other climbers.

“In a world where feelings of isolation are increasingly common, Breaking Boundaries Bouldering is a third place that would allow people to thrive physically and socially, to break free of the external factors that often put our lives in metap،rical boxes.”
