NTU Architecture Subject Group

The Archivist - Record Chambers


The space will be a place for Miles Chambers, the Archivist, to continue his collection and support his love of vinyl, celebrating the remainder of the existing building as a frame that sits within. Just like the vinyl, celebrating the current history of the space that was once his first home.

Miles is now planning on renovating and converting The Shudehill Umbrella Factory into an archive of both his personal and inherited collection. The space will provide private accommodation, a workshop for record players and vinyl, in addition to a recording studio. The space will also offer an Archive for both Miles’ and Archie’s collections, bespoke units will display the record players in all their glory alongside their combined record collection spanning 100 years of music. The ground floor and basement will offer flexible social event space and a private cafe for visitors to the Archive.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design

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.
