The Espresso Taste

This project aims to create an enjoyable yet multifunctional practical space that inhibits Espresso Machines and serves as a headquarters for the Archivist. My main goal here is to design a space that draws the Archivist into an immersive experience in the world of espresso machines and coffee. The space will act as a centre of creativity for the Archivist to study and work on the object, as well as educate the public about it. The space will feature an interactive and immersive showcase archive for the espresso machines, an espresso machine repair and maintenance laboratory, and an educational and social for the public, all connected by a unique piping concept. Combining these spaces and features together while exploring the object further and studying it in detail will allow me to create a unique and flexible spatial experience. The two predominant clients for this space are the Archivist and the espresso machine. The espresso machine itself will inhibit most of the space and consequently will become a huge part of its design.

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.
