Hi, I am Nikoleta. I have recently completed a BA (Hons) Interior Design degree at University Centre South Essex and...

For my final major project, I have converted the Kursaal building that is Grande II listed building, in Southend - on -sea. Which opened in (1901) as one of the world's first amusement park. The venue opened in (1894) by father and son, this area was a marine park. Kursaal built in the south-west corner of the marine park, to a grand entrance and it was designed by (George sherry) in 1896 and completed by 1901. My aim of this project and Concept was to create an environment that stays with its self-federal historical style, with an added modern flair. I have designed the spaces in such a way that you get the feeling of being in a natural space outdoors, such as swimming in the sea and because the design Is heavily based around all natural, people will be coming to have perfectly natural spa treatments while feeling free from the stress of the outside world and all the harmful substances that occur. I have converted the Kursaal from its original use to The kursaal natural swim & spa, which will create a tranquil, healing atmosphere with natural treatments, and will use a colour scheme of calming colours which will induce and encourage the feeling of happiness feel inviting and welcoming while giving a modern touch creating a warm place to stay and where the visitors can visit more often and want to return to a place of comfort.

The concept design idea comes from the kursaal title(it’s original name) as it means, in German, a "Cure Hall" or spa, and it seems to have been adapted to mean a place of healthy amusement, place where the atmosphere has to be welcoming, but also with inspiration from the southend area, such as the sea and other natural elements. The ground floor’s size alone has inspired me and its original building architecture details , such as arches and plaster work embellishments throughout the building and in the reception and bowling zone, I wanted to create a feeling of a natural forest and reflections of a healthy life style where people can socialise, swim, have pampering treatments and communicate in a natural relaxing environment. The First Floor is a natural treatment spa, where people can have only natural treatment products, with no chemicals, as perfume oils, creams, and bath would only be natural from milk or mud herbs and water.

The target audience for this project is based on 18 to 60, all controlled by different timetables with different ages for different days.I have included natural finishes, such as stone and wood to show a natural feeling including plenty of greenery, such a green living wall and various plants. My spaces are large and open with high ceilings and plenty lights to create an inviting open space and I have gone for quite a contemporary style with minimal wall finishes and uncluttered simplistic accessories. I took advantage of the high ceilings to create interesting ceiling details, such as a repetitive honeycomb pattern with downlights to give the ceilings texture and pattern, reminiscent of nature.
