BA Interior and Spatial Design
I hope my designs will be critical to solving issues regarding sustainability, I want to create spaces which creates a sense of amazement through diverse processes and features, spaces which are simple yet exciting. I am looking to combine aesthetic with practicality whilst during the process be able to help aid social/environmental issues. After studying Interior and Spatial design at Plymouth I would love to have the opportunity to experience various roles where I can develop expertise throughout the whole design journey, from customer and contractor liaison all the way through to project completion.
Live projects: Three little rooms - This project was a construction of three tea rooms that was exhibited alongside Shinichiro Hashiguchi’s Tea room. The construction was based on the sections, elevation and plan of the sixteenth century Japanese teahouse Tai-an in Myoukian temple. In this live project I was able to work as part of a group, taking leadership on material management (Hay and timber), working on a short deadline and construction precision. Tate exchange at Tate modern - This project focused on 1:1 size cardboard constructions of semi-private spaces, working with a group of 5 on a short deadline and pitching the designs to the public. This helped me to improve on my communication skill, to colleagues and potential clients. UPP Student accommodation – The brief was to design a new concept for student living communal space on a vacant property on the university campus, this project has taught me how to conduct precise site surveys and pitch the final design proposal to the clients.
