Serene Studios

Relax your MIND.
Feel free to make a MOVEMENT.
Get inspired and MAKE.

Serene studios introduces a secular retreat experience situated within the heart of Nottingham’s Greens Windmill site, as students connect with nature and art therapy to improve holistic well-being.

I wish to explore the different approaches of arts as a way of therapy and healing from the overwhelming stress within academic studies. Within this project, I have created spaces which provide art therapy, architecture learning spaces and retreat pods which transform from flexible accommodation to private studio pods.

The geometric form of the architecture, arts and retreat school reflects the simplicity yet effectiveness of its functions as each wing of the building responds differently to its surrounding context.

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.
