The main requirement of my Major Project was to design a first new gallery environment for the art organisation Contemporary Art Space by extending an existing building or bringing new life to a disused one. The space was to be dedicated to one medium of contemporary art – in my case, painting.
The painting that inspired my design concept was Yellow-Red-Blue by Wassily Kandinsky. Geometric cube-like shapes helped with developing my idea of the glass roof extension, which makes my design. The busy nature of this painting made me opt for simple and neutral design solutions that wouldn’t interfere with colourful art on display. When it comes to the exterior, keeping with the surrounding architecture was an important element.
Every project throughout the course has challenged me taught me new skills that I will be able to use when embarking on a professional journey in Interior Architecture and Design.
