Meadow Lane School of Architecture

Meadow Lane Lock, 100 years ago the site was full of greenery until the mid-20th century during which the site fell victim to industrialisation losing its natural beaty and character.

My intervention aims to reverse these damages and make the site full of nature and greenery once again. The design reuses the existing building to create an architecture school with minimal impact on the environment. Entering into the building a double height foyer shows the character of the existing building with its interior brickwork still on show. The site is split in two with a canal running through the middle. A tall garden bridge connects the two areas together. The bridge is filled with nature and greenery creating a landmark which draws people in from a distance.

The concept of biophilia and balance, with pocket gardens throughout, creates a positive influence on the well-being of students and the local community using this building, allowing them to relax and create balance in their life.

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
