A University of Suffolk student from Interior Architecture and Design has been recognised by the industry and nominated for a national award.
Charlotte Bywaters who will graduate this year was put forward for best project in the National Interior Educators Award at the Free Range Interior Educators Show in London.
Lecturer Stamatis Zografos said “The Interior Architecture and Design team was delighted to find Charlotte was longlisted, one of only 9 students nationally. Her project, Transition, has a strong social agenda, is highly sophisticated, considerate towards its immediate context and Charlotte’s approach to design is inspirational.”
Transition uses Ipswich’s Broomhill Lido for inspiration. This project is an extension which connects up to the existing disused site and utilises the negative space below and positive space above ground.
The project is described as ‘A structure built to house a range of multidisciplinary holistic activities for care leavers, a key stakeholder in the Suffolk population, whose needs are massively overlooked. This proposal requires excavation in the woodland park which resides to the North of the pool. The extension shall be respectful to the surrounding environment and consider the best approach to construct around the trees and the topographical nature of the woodland.’
Fellow graduates from the University’s Interior Architecture and Design course also exhibited their work at the Free Range Interior Educators Show which was held in London from 13-15 July.
