CHICKS @ Belowda
- Negotiated Project
For this negotiated project I was tasked on creating my own brief through finding a two storey building and concept. I used an abandoned china clay works near Bodmin Moor in Cornwall and working with the charity CHICKS (Country holidays for inner city kids) developed a site that would incorporate key elements that teenagers fed back would meet CHICKS key objectives of: Adventure; Relaxation; Creativity and Imagination.
'Pavilion' by Benugo
- Shipping Container Project
Hyde Park, London
The brief was to create a unique space using a shipping container. I chose to develop a sister site for Benugo's Serpentine restaurant in Hyde Park, London. I did this through building an island on piles and creating a sunken walkway to gain access. The shipping container was clad in matt gold perforated steel sheets, inspired by the Golden Pavilion in Japan.
The Lizard, Cornwall
Poltesco is the site of a National Trust owned Serpentine mine that is now in a significant state of disrepair, our brief was to use the site to engage the local community. To do this I created "The Night Sky project", this embraced everything about the darkness, a key attribute to the sites location on the Lizard; from bats to astronomy and the adventures that you can have navigating around in the dark.
Helford Chapel -
Using a small Chapel on the River Helford in Cornwall we needed to create a small cafe. To do this, I created the 'Yellow Door Cafe' featuring a small indoor restaurant as well as outdoor pop-up kitchen for feast nights and one-off events.
The brief was to create a product and poster that we felt could be sold through the Dutch brand Droog.
Droog is a:
"conceptual design company. We focus on matters that affect society
and its people. The process is key. Our work is anti-disciplinary. And the outcome
can be anything that contributes to society".
Personally, I am concerned about the level of disposable coffee cup waste, so wanted to develop a range of products that would help to combat this.
