Re-Imagined Art Gallery

The Re-Imagined - City Centre project focuses mainly on the adaptive reuse of vacant historical buildings in the heart of Nottingham. This project provides support to minimize the effect of redundant empty spaces, that affect the large-scale buildings, due to the economic downturn caused by the recent Covid-19 lockdown. The selected site is the Grade II listed building, known as No. 6 Victoria Street.

Since the surrounding area of the site is often crowded with young population, the function selected must cover their need for design and art consumption. Besides, local artists are constantly looking for a space and platform where they can display their work, hence the selection of a Gallery as the new function for this building.

The art gallery proposal looks to protect the historical aspects of its host building, while integrating a contemporary space for artists and their artworks. This project is all about transitory changes and the creation of diverse functions, the space has been designed as a building within a building, resulting as an internal ‘box concept’ that keeps safe distance of the existing walls of the structure.

The course is an intensive 53 week in length, and it is divided into three successive terms: Certificate, Diploma and Masters. The DIPLOMA SHOW is the conclusion of Term 2, launched in July 2021. At the end of Term 3 October 2021, the same students present their MASTERS SHOW before entering into industry or further studies.

The course has a very strong studio-based culture which is reflective of professional practice, with a combination of design and skills-based teaching and exploration with a strong focus on the spatial investigation, humancentric and holistic use of space.
