Three Tiers

The aim of community integration and a collaboration of spaces will drive my project ethos, aiming to connect communities from around Nottingham together in one place. To achieve this, comfort and functional spaces will be combined creating a place to learn, relax and communicate with others. The focus of the scheme is to provide the area with a culinary school, amongst a youth club scheme where sporting activities can also take place. A central courtyard will create a middle ground for all these spaces, creating an outdoor space where all the different users can connect. Looking into the local area a green space like this is needed as the high residential area does not offer a green space open to the public. An onsite green house will be used not only to educate the students at the culinary school on sustainable produce but also provide the restaurant with fresh, organic food to be used within their kitchen. This keeps the idea of local community and collaboration a running theme within the project. To keep this new scheme in keeping with the surrounding contexts, consideration will be taken when thinking about the shapes and materials used within the design

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
