Domestic Industry 


This project was a speculative proposal during my time at the Royal College of Art showing an alternative future for the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ in Sheffield. This project was about developing a mode of practice through making and learning from others. Ways that ‘the industrial’ and ‘the domestic’ overlap were explored in the creation and use of a series of domestic objects – a knife, a worktop and a set of cutlery. A strategy for re-industrialising the city fabric, mixing industrial and domestic spaces, evolved from these explorations. Shortlisted for Sustain RCA Show 2016 Displayed on RCA website here.





About Me  


Architecture should be uplifting and memorable. It should feel permanent and durable. It should be relevant to its place, framing key views and oriented to the climatic conditions, bringing natural light deep within. I am committed to producing unique and memorable spaces and are a delight to inhabit.
