BA (Hons) Interior Design
My time at university has fostered a personal interest in two, potentially converging, career paths: interior design and design writing. As a designer, my main interest is in design and architectural history, both in a direct (working with old buildings and furniture) and indirect (referencing historic details in contemporary work) capacity. As a design writer, I am keen to explore both my specialism in interior design, as well as my appreciation for the wider creative industries, instilled throughout my time studying at NUA.
I have evidenced both of these interests in my Signature Project, ‘Fabric of Time’; based in St James’ Mill, an Industrial Revolution Textile Mill of 1839, situated on the banks of the River Wensum in Norwich, Norfolk. The design solution involved the subdividing of the five expansive spinning floors into artists loft style apartments, with an emphasis on modularity, adaptability, and historic preservation.
