Vivid Aquarium Showroom + Education Project

Using the Beacon Building at Helm's Bakery, this conceptual aquarium project was to utilize the space for multiple functions: Aquarium Showroom, Retail, Education and Customized Aquarium Design.

The architectural elements of the exterior building were to be mirrored on the interior walls, giving a "lost city of Atlantis" feel to the showroom and educational area. The rest of the space was to be defined by sculptural design elements used intended to give the space a dramatic feel.

One of these elements, an organic column with a jelly fish tank perched within its "branches" is echoed again in the terrazzo floor detail and the wall separating the public area of the space from the private offices beyond.
