A project by Aberrant Architecture, a practice co-led by Cass interiors lecturer Kevin Haley, is on the longlist for two categories of the international Interior design awards
Date: 20 November 2018
Aberrant Architecture , the design practice whose principles include Cass Interior Architecture and Design lecturer Kevin Haley, have been longlisted in both the Education and Colour categories of the Frame Awards for their Rosemary Works Reimagined project.
The Frame Awards is the first and only global interior-design awards with a truly holistic approach. The Awards identify and honour the world’s best interior projects, but also the people behind them. The work is judged by all industry stakeholders: interior designers, architects, retail brands, hospitality providers, cultural institutions, and educators. In total 34 awards are divided under Spatial, Executional, and Societal Awards covering the entire spectrum of interiors, while the Honorary Awards celebrate the people behind them.
About Rosemary Works Reimagined
The Directors of Rosemary Works commissioned Aberrant Architecture to re-design and re-invent their school as part of a major investment in the future facilities and infrastructure of their buildings. Through a series of design workshops, the practice worked in collaboration with the school directors, teachers, parents and pupils to develop a contemporary vision that has breathed new life into both the ground floor and first floor spaces of the building.
The commission has been seen as a chance to develop an innovative concept that responds to the school's unique needs, wants and resources. Subsequently a coherent and authentic interior has been developed, based upon a thorough understanding of the demands of its occupants today and a reinterpretation of the heritage of the building and its immediate surroundings.
Highly individual classrooms and other spaces have come about with the help of differing colours that foster orientation among the children. Existing features such as pillars, doors and windows have been left in place, simply livened up with colour-coded coats of paint. In deliberate contrast to the bright colours, seating areas and shelving were added in untreated wood, thus neutralising the overall appearance of the individual rooms. Despite the sheer variety of hues the interiors are harmonious in impression.
The longlist represents the best submission from more than 1000 entries to the Frame Awards 2019. Jury members will next select five nominees per category. If shortlisted, Aberrant’s Rosemary Works project will take one step closer to The Frame Awards ceremony in the Netherlands on the 20th February 2019.
