Farm-Inn

The main idea behind my design was to think of ways to help every individual member become an active part of the community.
The concept of connection and dialogue between the spaces serves exactly that. I wanted to create public, semi-public and transitional spaces that work together in unity. As a result, instead of designing one public house, I designed a community of people that live work and have fun in spaces that are close to each other. This is why I am incorporating these spaces in a mixed-use scheme. An urban farm engages the people in a conversation about the way we live and consume. A public house (pub) where people gather to have fun and socialise. A market/ learning space that has to do with the plants and vegetables that are being produced on the farm as well as a kitchen where people learn how to cook. All these places are managed by people who live on-site, as there are 5 apartments for them. “The barrel drop” pub, becomes a club/social space that is dedicated to gatherings and social events that have to do with issues that concern the local community.

MArch Architecture

The Master of Architecture (MArch) embraces the challenge of 21st Century architectural practice and focuses on educating architects with a global outlook through projects set in local, national, and international contexts.

Through “vertical studios” in each year of study, steered by leading practitioners and academics, we put current architectural thinking at the heart of the course. We locate architectural design centrally as an academic discipline through rigorous cross-disciplinary design research and complex methodological application. The course recognises the essential cross-cutting and cross-disciplinary nature of architecture, bringing together diverse disciplines aiming to create collaborative/group work as a means of developing design creativity within the realistic teamwork environment of practice. All projects will be developed considering sustainability, environmental, socio-economic and cultural aspects, rather than being studied and applied as discrete areas of teaching and learning.
