Interior design students recently presented their Barefield Workplace Solutions Steelcase Projects.

This year’s competition project was a customer service center for a product or service company.  Students were asked to develop a company and product, taking into account the goals of the organization and the company culture and brand.  The project was a two-floor, 36,000 square foot office building that included offices, workstations, product displays, training rooms, work café and organizational departments for 125 employees. 

The goal of the project, sponsored by Barefield Workplace Solutions in Jackson, is to increase proficiency in planning and designing large-scale commercial interiors. This project focused on the specific issues of general office and customer service space types and on understanding systems furniture selection and specification. Students were guided through the project in Associate Professor Amy Crumpton’s third-year studio course.

Student competition and scholarship winners were selected by Ginger Huffman, RID, IIDA, interior designer for Office Interiors in Huntsville, Ala. She is an alumnus of the Mississippi State Interior Design Program.
