I am particularly interested in commercial and branded design, exploring ways branded spaces can connect with people. I enjoy challenging myself and aim to create designs which inspire and help brands grow by representing their core values.
I take inspiration from respected designers, in this project: Piero Lissoni and Stéphane Malka influenced key design moves.
The House of Teens Unite connects people across the UK (aged 13-24); helping to rebuild lives following a cancer diagnosis. Cancer treatment puts young lives on hold, missing out on education can cause isolation and loss of confidence.
The retreat offers a homely and sociable atmosphere; challenging activities help young people rebuild confidence and understand that cancer does not have to hold them back.
The House of Teens Unite is a place of empowerment for young people, to embrace life and live it to the full. Helping to turn darkness into light.
The House of Teens Unite fosters a sense of ‘togetherness’ where every young person is welcomed into the Teens Unite Family. Young people can meet others who truly understand what it is like to go through cancer.
The House of Teens Unite Concept Narrative. Key design rules such as Togetherness, Home from Home, Independence and Challenge.
The Challenge Floor
The challenge floor is a hub of activity, filled with young people who share similar circumstances and experiences. The open space provides a friendly, inclusive atmosphere for young people to be themselves and connect with others who understand.
The Microhomes are home from home spaces; which range from one to four bedrooms. They help young people to gain independence away from staff and family. Young people can choose when natural light comes into the home via use of shutters. Each microhome has an en-suite and a unique design so young people can choose a ‘home’ that matches their personality and interests.
