The kitchen is the communal area of the building. It is a place for everyone to meet up have a big space to eat, drink and talk throughout the day. It also is a direct link with the courtyard/garden and the observatory.
The workshop is a big open space easy to open up or close, with the shoji (japanese sliding doors), depending on the amount of privacy every person needs. The lighting in that area is also adjustable depending on the different needs. That building has a direct access to one of the entrances and the shop making it easier to transport materials and sell their work.
The bedrooms are located in the old Paint Mill building. This place is inspired by the Japanese fusuma (vertical sliding panels used to redefine spaces within a room). That way the bedrooms can be open or closed or redefined depending on the needs.
The MA Interior Architecture and Design is a multi-dimensional course which incorporates the understanding of interior, spatial and architectural design alongside an awareness of building structure.
The course is an intensive 53 week in length, and it is divided into three successive terms: Certificate, Diploma and Masters. The DIPLOMA SHOW is the conclusion of Term 2, launched in July 2021. At the end of Term 3 October 2021, the same students present their MASTERS SHOW before entering into industry or further studies.
The course has a very strong studio-based culture which is reflective of professional practice, with a combination of design and skills-based teaching and exploration with a strong focus on the spatial investigation, humancentric and holistic use of space.
