Pinnacle Picks – Ben04-03-2016
In the first of our “Pinnacle Picks” series, we asked our CAD Technician, Ben, which of the projects we completed last summer were his favourites and why. Read on to see his choices!
“It was exciting to see the design for Dr. Challoner’s come together, as it had a high volume of seating, both hard and soft, and the challenge we overcame was to fit the required number of students into the space. We worked closely with the client to achieve the desired effect, and the design team came up with a number of concepts to create a space that was vibrant as well as practical for a sixth form area. There was also a great use of colour that I liked because it brought the space to life.”
“The library at Brampton Manor was one of my favourites because we created a purple and grey concentric circle design on the floor which we then tied in with the library shelving, of which there were two different types. Some of the shelves tied in with the colour of the carpet as they had pink and purple metal shelves, and the other bookcases were curved and tied in with the concentric design. The colour scheme also included a bright lime green, and the three colours complemented each other and made the library space vivid and an inspiring place for students to work and study.”
“Bishop Bell was also a favourite of mine as the school wanted us to incorporate the brand into the design by including the school’s colours. The reception area used the four colours in the TV display unit and in the seating, and it had a bright pink feature wall which brightened up the area. The most interesting part however, was the inclusion room. It was a spacious classroom which we had to split up between IT, Art, Food Tech and a normal classroom area. It was very interesting creating the visuals for this project because I used the school colours to distinguish the four different distinct areas of the learning space.”
