Long time no see… And I’ve learnt to render!!

So. Hello. Its been a while hasn’t it? Final hand-in is in a week and to be honest, the blog has been the least of my priorities over the last month or so. But I’ve got a spare hour and thought I’d post some of my most recent work. Since I last wrote I’ve been … Continue reading

Desk Study: How do we use the space we have?

I have recycled a bit of work from the third year of my undergrad degree for this study; we designed an office then as well and part of the project was a study into how we worked in different spaces. We had to work in one space for a day and log how we worked, … Continue reading

Cross Crit: Tuesday 19th March

We had our last major crit (!) on tuesday; a cross crit in the studio’s where we each got about 20 minutes to present our work to a panel of tutors; some we knew and some we didn’t.

I’ve termed the intervention to the second class baths and the east side of the building the entrance. … Continue reading

In-depth Design: The Entrance

This post summarises the new design I’ve come up with for the entrance to the offices and Baths. I’ll put up a proper summary with notes tomorrow but wanted to get my sketches up as soon as possible. The images below illustrate my ideas and my train of thought (click to get larger images)…

My aim since developing the design of the office is to re-design the entrance and the Second Class Baths half of the existing building. I came up with a few ideas that the tutors didn’t like, and were (quite honestly) boring architecturally. Having got a bit stuck in a computer-based rut a few weeks ago … Continue reading

Pinterest, Precedents and Picture-Finding

I have started a board of precedents on Pinterest for offices and office spaces, as well as more general architectural design. I have tried to work out what I like about each image and written this in the caption underneath. The link to the board is here. I will try and keep it regularly updated, … Continue reading

Creativity never stops…

Obviously in the midst of all the work, there is also a bit of fun and I thought I’d share with you some of the fun things I’ve been doing. Actually, only one. But there will be more to come – I tend to find it quite hard to switch off on evenings where I’ve … Continue reading
