Walnut Tree Ceramic Therapy Centre

The Walnut Tree Ceramic Therapy Centre is a response to the ever-increasing need for help and support to establish and maintain a positive connection with society. Mental and physical needs have been ignored for too long. COVID isolated many people further from services and help they desperately need to be able to function in an ever-deteriorating climate of international turmoil.

My architectural design creates a hub of interconnectivity; a safe, secure space providing practical services at a pace suitable for 'the individual'. Through the medium of clay, communication at various levels can be initiated, practically and verbally, encouraging new friendships, fun and laughter, surrounded by the new green, holistic spaces.

Through support, the Therapy Centre can provide visitors with a calm nurturing environment facilitating the process of gentle interconnectivity with society

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.
