Year 1 – Term 2 [Officers mess]
Leading on from my first project we were given the brief to design a different dinging experience for 16-20 people this time. The clients were cavalry officers looking for a venue designed for an annual officer’s mess. After researching the topic, I found out that these events although initially formal. Slowly become less formal as the night goes on. Likewise, my project and its design should also follow this theme of determination in formality. The site for this project was to be the courtyard at the centre of the travellers club and my design was to slot into this space.
The final concept was a vertical journey as the cavalrymen ascend each floor as the evening progressed they would find that each floor became a less formal experience.
