The Viewpoint

The viewpoint is an art and photography centre in Sneinton which has been designed to take full advantage of the existing sites beauty and the views found there. This project’s goal is to preserve and celebrate the site and its history, recognising the significance of the windmill to the area and using art as a medium to capture it.

The building is divided into its two functions, separated by a grand atrium designed to draw visitors into the space. The two functions being the public gallery and café, and the public/private art and photography studios. The spaces are designed to create a journey towards key viewpoints picked out and framed from within the building for visitors to come and enjoy.

The building is also designed to be a key part of the community, celebrating local artists and photographers through providing a place for them to make and exhibit their work, with events to be held to bring the community together

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.
