BA (Hons) Interior Design
Over the last decade we have become consumed by social media, it has become an inescapable part of our everyday lives. This affect is seen in interior design as it is altering the way designers approach creating spaces. Commercial clients aim to engage social media users in exchange for complimentary advertisement, this desire for spaces that are “Instagrammable’ can also provide design opportunities beyond the motivation for marketing and financial gain to create engaging and memorable experiences for the user.
Buildings can sometimes lose their historic value and legacy when they become repurposed, therefore they can lose the connection with users who valued the previous space. The main objective of this project is a restoration designed to bring the structure into a contemporary setting whist maintaining its past glory wherever possible. A multi-functional space which provides two separate atmospheres during the day and in the evenings that can enable a space to restore a part of its history.
