New Campus Centre welcomes Spatial Design



The University of Bedfordshire’s New Campus Centre in Luton, is home to the BA(Hons) Interior Design and BA(Hons) Interior Architecture Degree Show 2011 until 16th June 2011.

The Final Major Projects on display are developments of the Interior/Architectural design project ‘Spatial Dichotomies‘.

Students were asked to design for two contrasting user groups, accommodated within one building. Some of the dichotomies explored were  ‘crematorium and fertility clinic’, ‘transvestite club and business conference centre’, ‘elderly care centre and art house cinema’.

The students had a choice of two buildings to use as a site for their design proposals, The Hat Factory, Luton, and  No.7 Soho Square, London. These building were very different in terms of architectural style, space, location and demographic – offering lots of scope for creative, spatial intervention given the selected dichotomy.

As part of the design development for their schemes, the students produced some really impressive models, many of which can be seen in the images here.

The show opened with a very buzzy and exciting ‘private viewing’ on 8th June, where the images shown here are taken…”enjoy!”
