“Form must have a content, and that content must be linked with nature.” Alvar Aalto
The project aims to offer a dynamic space for the archivist and users. The area is inspired by observing the espresso machine and its characteristics. The building gives the impression of beauty of the existing structure with nature. It is a large building for few people, archivist and their colleages. Thus, the remaining space is used for the indoor garden in the middle of the building, which is linked with the natural sunlight coming from the skylight windows.
The unique feature of the four sections face each other through the indoor garden.
Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.
Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.
We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
