The goal of this project is to create an archive for archivists. The family business of the archivists is typewriters, and after their parents died, three of them (siblings) moved here and started living together. The flowing character that distinguishes the whole design is also featured in the choice of materials, which provide a gentle colour gradation in a natural palette from the light brown of wood to the greys of steel and concrete. The design will be based on the archivist’s personality.

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.
