Year 2 Projects
P1 – Threshold
The purpose of this project was designing a small building in a landscape acting as a hub for landscape photographers looking for a place to relax and develop their photos. Our concept was creating a design that would replicate the experience a landscape photographer would have – climbing rocks and turning around in search for views.
Project in collaboration with Dang Viktoria.
Site analysis – Territory task – Design process
Measure task – Concept diagram – Circulation diagram
Abstract planning – Ground floor plan – First floor plan
Views – Killer drawing by Viktoria – Killer drawing by Roxana
P2 – Library
The second project of the year focused on creating a medium sized public building in Ropewalks, Liverpool. In designing a library, I questioned how it would reflect the society and the trends of this century where information can be accessed anywhere. The media library brings the user on a journey through the history of communication and sharing information – starting with the digital era and going back to the old, dusty book libraries. The building is thus targeting a great amount of users while embracing diversity and freedom of choice – principles that the 21st century relies on.
Site analysis – Context studies

Sections – Elevation
Approach – Facade & landscape design – Shape in context
Digital library – Magazine & newspapers – Book library
P3 – Housing
The last project of the year was designing a housing scheme in the Burngreave neighbourhood in Sheffield. Through this project I aim to bring together single parent families and two parent families in a cohousing scheme designed to suit their needs and to promote interaction. By creating a community kitchen and a shared courtyard, the families can interact through preparation of food and therefore create a strong bond with each other. The design also adds a few on site services to make families’ life easier.
