SAVANNAH, GA— The Savannah College of Art and Design’s (SCAD) Kevin Elika, a B.F.A. interior design student at the college’s Atlanta location, was one of five award winners in Marriott International’s Great Room Design competition.
Marriott challenged students to create their own version of the great room, an invigorating, open space and comfortable environment in which guests can gather, work, eat and socialize.
Students were asked a series of questions and to describe their overall experience in a short sentence. Winners were selected based on the creativity, relevance and feasibility of their idea and received a $200 prize.
Elika’s submission focused on creating an interior design concept that would transform based on changing seasons, using light, texture and shape to shift the environment.
