This year the interior design students at the University of the West of England (UWE) have based their final year projects on our development, Brandon Yard in Bristol. The students were each asked to explore ‘Urban Spaces’ and as part of this, they were tasked to identify a key demographic, scale and function that responded well to the given site within Bristol city centre.
We followed the students through the first stages of the project in February, attending a CRIT assessment to see their initial site analysis and design proposals. This was then followed by a site visit at Brandon Yard for the students, to help them further inform their designs and research and in April, the students presented their ideas for their final concept.
This month we were delighted to attend the UWE degree show to see all of the fantastic work showcased. The final designs included an art deco inspired gin distillery, a sound therapy space, Sandscapes which drew on the Bristol’s glassmaking history, an indoor skate park and a student workspace. We’d like to thank UWE for letting us be a part of this project and we wish the students the very best of luck for the future!
