Eternus (section showing the platforms) By Maya Fabri
Interior Design is an exciting and multidisciplinary practice involving a broad range of projects such as retail, workspace, hotel, exhibition, community and leisure.
The interior design course has had an exciting year, joining in study trips to Amsterdam, Venice and here on our shores in Norfolk. Future thinkers Super Collider worked with the students finding solutions for the long distant future. Lighting experts from Speirs and Major and BDP developed ideas of light impactful architecture, with lectures delivered by Industry leaders, developing ideas of ethics, entrepreneurialism and being market aware. The course is eventful and demanding but most of all a life changing experience.
Interior Design presents the design work of seven studios, each has its own character and focus within the interior Industry. Retail Spaces: posed the question that commercial giants overwhelming smaller communities taking the character, the students reengaged with the community designing poignant and sensitive interiors.
Standardized Quality focused on buildings that are commissioned without discussion. They are the characterless concrete boxes; space which has no individuality, such a blocks of flats, many schools and reimagined the space making it distinctive for both trade and living alternatives. The Modern Emporium were briefed by Marks and Spencer to envisage a new concept for the their International Homeware store and following this worked with another brand giant, Estee Lauder designing pop-ups.
Enjoy the whimsical and the fun but seriously commercial. Interior Interventions investigated the reuse of a large complex of an ex-army arsenal, working diligently with ideas of scale to reclaim the space sympathetically back into the community. Place of Pleasure used their sensory talents to devise the most sensual and emotive experiences for Krug Champagne realizing many of these feelings within a Spa in Shoreditch. The Rise of the Creative District took on the London Canal museum and the canal by its façade, surveyed and revitalized its purpose, it’s function and place within the location. Work Rest and Play developed wonderful ideas of flexible working spaces within Canary Wharf working with BDG architects and BNY Mellon, corporate and big business but the human factor is still central to all the ideas.
This elevation shows the Canal Museum which contains underground ice vaults. Marie Cristina has reimagined the space as galleries.
The design has taken inspiration of being in space and in the skies. It simulates a light and anti-gravitational feel as if the visitors were still in the air.
The Tree is a part of a forest analogy, where the trees provide the space for small start- up businesses, to work, meet and share.
