With a BA in Theatre Design, Poppy is interested in the atmospheric potential of different materials, specifically the influence this has on the relationship between the occupant and the space.
My project focuses on non-invasive methods to create additions to the site, leaving interventions to the existing building to a minimum. Aiming to create a clear juxtaposition between the new and existing. Celebrating the contrast these materials offer.
My appreciation for fine art often feeds into my designs, I view the crucial principles within painting to mirror that of interior design, with interior design working as a form of functional art.
This temporary structure serves as a display for preserved wildlife samples, through a taxidermy and herbarium display. The adaptable structure sits within the existing walls of the ruin. The steel structure contrasts the rough existing ruin, with perforated metal allowing for the visibility of the ruin throughout. Maintaining the lack of distinction between indoor and outdoor, the design offers areas of shelter, yet strays away from allowing complete insulation within the display spaces.
This project focuses on maintaining important elements of the original object through a different method.
