Park hill development is my last college project. The purpose of the project was to design an interior of an apartment. The apartment is located in City centre of Sheffield. It is two bedrooms flat with a Kitchen, a Living room and a Bathroom. However we had a possibility to do significant changes. We could add or remove inner walls to create place, which is satisfactory to our client needs. We were able to choose a client. It could be a single person or a couple. We could use actual person or fictional client with specific needs. Our choice gave us an idea for style, furniture and colours for our design. It let us to make a decision which domestic zones should be included, such as Sleeping, Bathing, Studying, Food preparation and Entertainment.
Park Hill is a council estate in Sheffield. It was constructed between 1957 and 1961. It is one of the largest building in Europe. It is located on the hill and has an amazing view on the city. Following a period of decline and social problems it was closed for years. The estate is currently being renovated by the developers Urban Splash. There are a wide range of apartments, flats, offices and leisure space which people will be able to buy from 2012 year.
My client was 24-year-old female. She is lively, energetic and open-minded. She loves adventure and likes to travel over the world. She works as a personal assistant and masseur so she is a very busy person. She spends all days in a small office or a massage studio. This is why I designed for her a specious apartment, which gives her freedom of movement and residence. I want to design modern interior as I think it is welcoming, warm and restful. Below I present my final design idea.
