The intimate seating area, snuggled behind the central bar and enveloped in oak wood, this space provides an escape for the user, I imagine this area to be used by parents waiting for their children who are having kayak lessons or by the local who enjoys the Neon Raptor beer but doesn’t particularly want to take part in the full experience of Knotts.
The central bar, this is the core to this proposal. The brewery journey user can see and get excited for the final part of their journey, the anticipation leads up to this moment. The central bar has views out onto the moore and the teaching space creating a point where both journeys collide
The brewery, the spectacular wow moment of this proposal. Here the users of the brewery journey can experience the smells and sounds of the making of the beer they are about to drink. The user gets a glimpse into the workings of this product which creates a connection between the consumer and the product.
Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.
Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.
We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
