Plymouth, Essex and London, United Kingdom
I am currently studying Spatial Design at the University of Plymouth. With an interest and background in structures and fine art, this gives a good balance of form and function. I am also looking into light manipulation and architectural projection mapping for my Final Major Project.

Plymouth Gin Distillery Interior Design

The Plymouth Gin distillery is designed around the tasting experience of the gin.  The entrance acs as the first sensation, smell. It has live botanicals such as Juniper lodged into the walls, this entices the public into the building and also gives the feeling that the building itself is an ingredient.  The lobby acts as the initial taste of gin, lots of movement with sharp notes of citrus. The pathing stones act as glass taste buds which extrude up and down, dependant on how many people are in the room, it also sculpts the stairway to the rest of the building.  The stage/tasting area represents the lasting taste of the gin with its warm spice aromas. The series of extruded glass tiles create a custom made environment for tasting sessions. Tables and stools can be extruded if needed. The design is very dynamic and open for many different scenarios.
