Addenbrookes Pediatric Day Unit Transforming a day room and storage space into into a relaxing hub for teens and young adults at Addenbrookes Paediatric Day Unit, a six bed ward for children and young people aged 3-16 who need a bed for a day. The challenge was to create a space that was multifunctional and enabled teenage patients to relax away from the ward environment, which is geared more towards the younger patients. Occasional consultations, minor treatments and clinical procedures could also happen within the room, where it might be preferable for the young person, so the materials used had to be compliant with infection control, without being too unwelcoming.
NICU Sibling PlayPod Parents visiting their babies at the NICU often have older siblings with them, pre-school and school age children. A safe space was needed to have fun and play without obstructing the working of the facility. In this case, the space allotted to the play area was quite small, so maximising its use was a priority. Infection control and safety are paramount in such a sensitive ward so appropriate materials need to be used, and the design needed to complement the building’s carefully researched design to promote the well-being of babies and their families.
Nike 6.0 Pop-Up Store The store, a disused retail unit in the centre of Newquay, was transformed within three weeks to be unveiled as the Nike 6.0 Boardshort Bar to coincide with a series of Nike sponsored surf competitions and concerts in July 2011.
Eden Project Store Situated in the Link building, between the two famous Eden Project Biomes and above the main restaurant area, the retail shop contains sustainable and fair trade food, gifts and clothing. Our design focused on using reclaimed materials in keeping with the ethos of The Eden Project. We worked closely with the in house creative team, who helped source many of the materials; this meant that the design grew organically, depending on the materials that were found. The cashier counter is made from reclaimed timber doors and an old dance floor – it even comes complete with heel marks!
She Sells The picturesque harbour of Mevagissey offers the perfect backdrop for the new light, paired back design at She Sells. The design has sought to subdivide the shop into cafe and retail space whilst maintain an open and clean aesthetic.
Beer and Bird Taking on this unconventional first-floor venue in the heart of the bustling seaside town of St Ives, our client wanted to create an honest and authentic bar and restaurant providing high quality fried chicken and the best craft beers on the market. We set about creating an interior to reflect this ethos and strengthen the brand through an exciting physical space. Two birds, one stone.
Lyme Regis Museum Shop As part of a new architectural extension at Devon’s Lyme Regis Museum, our client wanted to create a gift shop that would reflect the values of the museum and draw people in at street level. Key to the project was a design that complimented the striking seafront zinc and glass facade, so we poured over every detail developing a palette of materials and textures that take cues from local topography.
