Student Services Hub
A future learning and collaborative space in Oxford city centre, where the university students meet, interact, socialise, learn, work and play. The project has been explored through all possible means, such as the physical changes of the site itself as well as the reprogramming of the Internal Skins via interventions. The synthesis of what can be expected from a future learning space is in relation to continuity in space through movements, blended boundaries, human connectivity and interaction, and integrated wholeness. The proposed design focuses on connecting the existing buildings and experimenting various deployable Internal Skins, such as Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please as a design methodology to create new architecture within the existing alleyway architecture. The Internal Skins shape spaces, circulations and movements within the buildings as well as introduce new volumes and levels.
