St. Clair Interior Design students have contributed their creative skill set to reimagining Vision Corridor Park in Windsor.
The Bottega Windsor: St. Clair - a 22,500-square-foot conceptual building consisting of eight artist studios and retail, admin, and social space with a central courtyard - was the community-based capstone project for Interior Design students in 2022. It is located at Vision Corridor Park, an outdoor space next to Art Windsor-Essex on the corner of Bruce Ave. and Riverside Drive West in Downtown Windsor until November 28.
In conjunction with their capstone project, the students were asked to interview eight local artists to learn about their individual needs, which were later implemented into the interior design of the artist studios.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the Interior Design students to celebrate their hard work, educate the community on the profession of Interior Design and promote both the College and the Interior Design program,” said Tricia King, the coordinator for Interior Design. “It is important that students participate in projects like this where they are integrated into the community. It enhances the student experience and strengthens the relationships between community partners and St. Clair College.”
The Bottega Windsor: St. Clair is designed to be a place for artists to feel inspired to work and for local art enthusiasts to visit and appreciate the works of local artists. AWE will display these capstone projects throughout November to support the St. Clair College Interior Design program. Plans are in the works for current Interior Design students to view the projects of their peers and tour AWE.
