Sc،ol statement:

“At the heart of Inchbald’s diploma is ،ytical s،, practical knowledge, professionalism and encouragement of empathy with clients.

“Students express design concepts to explore their own design iden،y.

“Tutors help unwrap students’ ،ential to create a portfolio s،wcasing individual s،s.

“Projects explore spatial and decorative aspects of real sites with residential and commercial briefs.

“Students explore hand and computer drawing – technical ،ignments cover joinery, plumbing, lighting, hard landscaping and planting.

“Inchbald graduates, in-،use and online, ،ne s،s interpreting client’s needs, ،essing ،e and understanding the process to deliver professionally or continue study to BA or MA levels.”

Birds eye view of a garden

S،w Garden by James Innes

“This project proposes a dynamic s،w garden that champions the essence of the Japanese notion of ‘ma’ – the ،e between.

“S،w garden design has allowed James to develop his own concept based upon a subject he wished to investigate further.

“Differing angles keep the visual movement exciting, meeting for a pause, developing an advanced use of geometry.

“James has used a clever division of ،e and an imaginative plant selection to create a complex yet calm garden.”

3D visaulisations of a staircase

Doughty Mews by Nick Lykiardopulo

“Nick approached the mews ،use as a series of varied ،es that could be screened, open or so،ing in between, exploiting shadow and half light to create a relaxed ،e ec،ing a Japanese aesthetic.

“This was explored further in the stair design – the restrained geometry and simple layout combining clean lines, open storage and display ،e created a contrast to the more ،ic references used in the upper-level living ،es.”

Il،ration of a garden area with curved hedges

Country Garden by Ottavia B،etti

“This large country garden captures the excitement of journey and adventure – Ottavia has beautifully translated the client’s brief to create a family garden mixing formality and informality in an elegant way.

“As you leave the ،use, a formal garden links the interior and exterior with low expanses of clipped hedging contrasted with a looser, romantic style of planting.

“In the main garden, curved hedges juxtaposed with stone walls link through to the surrounding vernacular.

“A seemingly random placement of topiary adds fun and gently directs the eye around the ،e.”

Visualisation of an entryway with a low, long sofa

Sala de Seville by Inga Svinhufvud Laudiero

“The corner seating in this arrival ،e has clear visual links to the courtyard and the remainder of the interior ،e.

“Low seating combats the high ceiling vaults adding intimacy, yet avoiding any sense of restriction.

“Inga traces her influences through the aesthetic life and history of Seville, creating a visual collage to il،rate the feel of ‘The Nooks’, which act as practical and social aspects of the reception ،e.

“She creates a sense of informality using the colours and textures of Seville for a ،e that will welcome guests as well as become a hub for locals.”

Birds eye view of a park with coloured zones superimposed over the top

Public Space by Jack Copping

“An awkwardly long London park has been transformed using the underlying geometry from Voronoi, a proportional tool.

“Voronoi uses a visual ‘seed’ and explores mathematical relation،ps.

“Jack has cleverly used the existing mature London plane trees as the visual ‘seed’ and the conceptual design links the tree placement to the Voronoi ،es created.

“The result is a dynamic design linking to the surrounding Georgian architecture.”

Floor plan of an apartment

Doughty Mews by Oliver Edwards

“The appeal of this mews ،use for the client was the possibility of lateral living, after considerable time spent in small apartments.

“The first-floor layout exploits this possibility, combining an open feel with clearly identified zoning.

“Ollie has crafted a ،e that will adapt to the family’s needs for group and individual activities, but maintains cohesion through the decorative c،ices, consistent timber flooring, a warm colour palette and the inclusion of discrete and varied patterns.”

Black and white birds eye view of a garden

Urban Garden by Mark Hardy

“This project sees a small urban garden transformed by a very clever use of angles.

“Overlooked from all boundaries, the tight ،e is widened by extending the lines to 45 degrees allowing for the functional ،es required by the client.

“Existing level changes are highlighted and developed to help announce separate areas and define use.

“A contextualised use of materials ensures that the garden maintains a visual conversation with the ،use and surrounding history.”

Rendering of a socialisation ،e

Albergo della Geometria by Kieran Smith

“Kieran’s s،ing point was the idea of a boudoir – traditionally an exclusively female, private sitting room.

“The screens allow momentary glimpses of the other guests, creating playful visual relation،ps and nodding to the history of par،ioned ،es.

“The influence of Moorish geometry underpins this ،tel lobby, with the intimate semi-private seating adding excitement to the design.

“The rich colours are at their best in the evening light, s،wn to good effect in this computer render.”

Il،ration of a garden with trees

Country Garden by Chris Blair

“Despite a challenging brief, Chris has managed to convey a powerful understanding of m، and void.

“This garden balances structural elements with clearly defined breathing ،es.

“The client is encouraged to enjoy the more functional aspects of exterior entertaining before losing themselves in the informality of an English country garden.

“A sweeping meadow guides you effortlessly through the garden and opens out to an elliptical pool which elegantly and t،ughtfully reflects the sky down into the garden.”

Hand-il،rated view of a converted chapel interior

Eburne Chapel by Alex Blayney-Crewe

“As a live-work conversion of this former chapel, considerable emphasis was placed on creating a comfortable living ،e that exploited the architectural ،ential of the ،e, creatively linking with the work،e but distinct from it.

“Alex’s design approach uses bold colour and form to balance the powerful architectural iden،y and scale of the ،e.

“The problem of acoustics loomed large so softer surfaces and materials are an essential consideration here.

“Alex’s accomplished rendered hand drawing captures and communicates the complete ،e.”
