Lily Day Spa in Chester, New Jersey approached John J. Haeberle AIA, LLC to design their new spa within a 1,000 square foot space. The narrow space provided a challenge to create individual rooms to accommodate the spa’s various skin care, health and beauty services, as well as providing an inviting reception area and comfortable customer waiting areas.
The ‘saw-tooth’ layout provided appropriately sized rooms while also creating a main corridor with cozy seating niches an...d strategically placed display areas. Barn type sliding doors were also utilized to maximize usable space. Warm and calming colors, textured wall panels and lighting were incorporated to add to the required ambiance of the space. Please visit our website http://haeberle-aia.com/commercial/lily-day-spa/ to view more photos of this project.
We enjoyed working on this project with Lili, and appreciate her trust in our firm to successfully create a space that we believe met or exceeded her expectations. For more information on Lily Day Spa, visit http://www.lilydayspanj.com/index.html.
2015 Trends for Residential and Commercial Interiors:
New and reused materials and furniture are being fused together. Wood accents mixed with industrial metal look stylish and unique, capturing the personality of the users. Reclaimed and exotic woods accented by gold or bronze generate that sought after luxury feel.
Darker, natural wall colors and a blend of patterns and textures are slightly downplayed by the trend of larger windows and entire walls that open up to the outs...ide. The outside is brought in with fully equipped entertaining spaces that double in size with flexible living plans. Dining rooms are now more often used as multi-functional and conference rooms are utilizing glass and flexible walls. When planning a renovation, the architecture and design choices are formulated for your goals, your needs and wants. John J. Haeberle meets you in person, asks you those pertinent questions and works with you every step of the way providing a clear path (and design) of your new space.

Architecture for Schools: There are many design principles to follow for educational buildings. The design and development process is lengthy, from the earliest strategic and educational planning stages right through to design, construction, and occupancy. A well-designed learning environment optimizes the school and its surrounding community as an effective setting for learning. Design suggestions we make for your school eases its future maintenance, encourages physical activity and participation and give the environment a home-like welcome. Smaller classrooms, circulation, security, supervision and multi-function spaces are taken into account every time we approach an educational structure. John J.

3D Architectural Renderings:
3D architectural rendering provide an excellent way to envision your project. These renderings can also be used to expose any potential issues with the design itself. Before final floor plans are developed, 3D interior and exterior renderings can focus ones attention from overall concept and the structure’s position on the land to kitchen cabinet selection and finishes. 3D Rendering typically take two to three days to develop and might take longer... depending on the size and intricacy of the design. John. J. Haeberle can provide 3D rendering services for all building types, including photo-realistic 3D renderings, floor plans, animations and walk-throughs. Our 3D renderings have been used not only for design presentations, but for marketing materials, real estate sales, and existing conditions documentation.

Designing Commercial Building Trends
Commercial architects have been busy incorporating ‘green’ features into each of their designs. If the architecture includes ‘smart’ solutions, even better. This architecture trend arrived center stage in 2013 and will continue to spearhead future design decisions. Attention to environmentally-sustainable features and green building materials is now considered a core competency when owners and developers are interviewing architects.
Comme...rcial architects have creatively invested in interior concepts that when designed well, impact the employees in such a way that there is a higher retention because employees have become more productive and engaged which ultimately improves the company’s bottom line. These latest interior design trends include using hot and bold color schemes, large geometric patterned floor and wall coverings, more comfortable furniture choices and more home-like gathering spaces. Commercial architecture is being recognized as a more creative environment that doesn’t need to look so stodgy to make a lasting impression. These commercial architecture trends are here to stay.

5 Spoken Reasons to Hire an Architect
Why should you hire an architect when there are other options available? Why not use non-licensed drafting professionals, download floor plans off the internet or use of a contractor that offers design/build services? There are many answers to this question, but these are the real reasons an architect is the best choice.
1) Designing for your lifestyle or workflow: The architect will want to know how each space will be used. The d...esign is customized to your home or business to emphasize harmony, properly utilize the space and accommodate every function. You simply cannot top custom architecture.
2) They are licensed professionals: Architects also have the know-how to balance a beautifully proportioned building while also satisfying required building codes, meeting specific structural demands and conforming with requirements to provide an energy efficient building.
3) HR Services: Architects can assist you in selecting the proper contractor for the job. You have an informed partner that will walk you through the bidding process, review the qualifications and examine the estimates.
4) Progress oversight: Your architect can review the building process every step of the way, ensuring that it is being constructed in accordance with the approved design, that the specified materials are being used and that the construction project is on schedule.
5) Streamline: Architects will streamline the entire process from the initial meetings to the final product. They can and will provide you with your vision, manage your expectations and always watch your bottom line.
