Talking in Nettleham Hall

The site is situated in Nettleham, a charming village in Lincoln, conveniently close to the University of Lincoln. It was once the residence of the Hood family in Lincoln but became abandoned after a fire since the family rarely visited.

Today, the site holds a mysterious allure, attracting adventurers from around the world. Join us on this exciting journey as we explore its potential.

As I explored the site, I noticed the fragile state of the building's walls, particularly one requiring support. By analyzing the wall's condition and introducing a new structure, I ensured its stability and longevity.

Considering the site's potential, I envisioned transforming it into a live museum, showcasing the future of agriculture and serving as a satellite studio for students. The University of Lincoln's strong presence in the city and its aim to share research outcomes with the public inspired this idea.

To achieve a harmonious integration of the new structure and existing building, I analyzed the walls, introduced a supportive axis, and completed the structure. This created a safe and regulated architectural logic, forming a strong foundation for future functions.

Chapter 2 focused on the relationship between nature and human interaction within the building. By analyzing the entrance, separate routes were established for students and visitors based on their needs and privacy. Reducing the interior space on the ground floor preserved the sense of exploration and established a connection between the building and its natural surroundings.

Chapter 3 addressed the allocation of space for students and visitors. Laboratory spaces were placed below the existing building to ensure safety and cleanliness. A ramp provided easy access for students to the lower ground laboratory, while visitors followed a clear route. Live exhibitions allowed visitors to observe ongoing experiments, enhancing their experience.

In conclusion, this project aims to transform the abandoned site into a live museum, showcasing the future of agriculture and serving as a satellite studio for students. Design strategies focused on reinforcing the existing structure, establishing harmonious integration, and creating connections between nature and human interaction. By providing clear layouts, ensuring privacy for students, and engaging experiences for visitors, the site is set to become a vibrant hub of exploration and learning.

I am Jes, an aspiring interior designer pursuing my studies at the prestigious Royal College of Art. With six years of dedicated focus on spatial design, I am thrilled to share my passion for interior design and architecture with you.

Throughout my academic journey, I have had the privilege of contributing to complex architectural projects that span single and multi-family residential, healthcare, and commercial buildings. These experiences have shaped my understanding of the profound impact design can have on individuals and communities. I have witnessed firsthand how thoughtfully designed interiors can transform spaces, evoke emotions, and enhance everyday experiences.

In addition to my academic pursuits, I have actively sought internships at renowned architecture firms to gain practical experience. These opportunities have provided me with invaluable insights into the professional world of design. Collaborating with industry experts has enhanced my technical skills and refined my ability to effectively communicate and negotiate with clients. I have learned how to navigate the complexities of project realization, from initial concepts to the final execution.

At the Royal College of Art, I have been fortunate to be part of a stimulating environment that encourages ambitious thinking. This freedom has allowed me to explore innovative design concepts and challenge traditional norms. I believe in pushing boundaries, embracing creativity, and constantly seeking fresh perspectives. My experiences at the college have shaped my design preferences, refined my artistic sensibilities, and nurtured my passion for pushing the limits of what is possible.

I invite you to join me on this journey as I continue to grow as a design professional. Together, we can transform spaces, tell stories, and create environments that leave a lasting impact.

Thank you for visiting my website, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.
