I am passionate about the design of beautiful spaces, particularly in the hospitality and residential sectors. This is evident in...

USP College (Palmers Campus) was the chosen site for my final major project. The building was a great choice as it was did not only have a personal connection (it is where I attended college) but it was also of key historical significance. It’s rich history of being an educational building began in the year of its construction in 1706 when a Merchant named William Palmer founded a charity school for the parish of Grays. This school then changed many years later to become ‘Palmers College’. Then again in 2017, the college merged with the Benfleet site of what was ‘Seevic college’ and became the new USP campus for Grays.

The buildings location of Grays is situated near to tilbury docks. Lots of design inspiration and ideas were drawn from this location such as a oceanic colour scheme and use of materials such as woods and rope which are typical of boat design styles. The concept for the hotel and restaurant design I created was to have a unique place for locals to come together and mix with those who have travelled from afar. This shared communal space concept offers relaxation, education and a subtle oceanic theme throughout to give a calming Unique Selling Point (USP).

More specifically, I have designed the restaurant spaces and the hotel rooms on the top floor of the building to give a greater perception to the room sizes and depths. I have chosen to design the hotel in one segment of the building which is separate to the rest of the restaurant and communal areas to give a unique experience to guests staying at the hotel. Showing the design of the top floor would show the privacy and luxury offered in the hotel. These particular rooms would be more expensive as a result of these factors and the views they offer. Showing the hotel room as one area does demonstrate the scale of the room more clearly (as mentioned above), but it also shows that the USP of the subtle oceanic theme the most out of all of the designed areas within the hotel/restaurant. Designing these hotel rooms allowed me to develop a deeper love for the prospect of going into the residential sector when I graduate.

The restaurant, on the other hand, made the most sense to show as my second and third room divided as these two areas will be the most used areas of the building- accommodating for school children on trips to use their growing patch (this area has been designed outside too), locals coming in for an in-house dining experience and those coming to stay in the hotel for a change of scenery and a relaxing night away.

Give this some love
