This year has included three main design projects, focusing on different scales and areas within the same site of Old College. The first project was a detailed adaptation of one of the historic Playfair Library's reading carrels. I created a multi-functional, flexible study space inspired by Japanese spatial design concepts that focused on exposing the existing details and reusing historic elements. The second project was about redesigning the Talbot Rice Gallery with a renewed vision. I created a gallery that would promote discussion around art and extend the gallery into the city. It involved master planning the surrounding streets and developing a sustainable plan for the gallery.
The final project was a development of the master plan with a focus on the urban realm and public interior space. The project was centred around the boundary between the new pedestrianised street and the public interior courtyard linking to new social, cultural spaces. Urban interiors and confined exteriors have been explored to create welcoming human-scaled spaces within a vibrant streetscape. It is a centre for arts, events, and gatherings with spaces and places for everyone.
