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.

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.

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.
