House of Film

BIO

I have studied at the Leicester School of Architecture, initially for my BA, and after a year of working in Cyprus I continued to the M.Arch which I completed this year.

 

My final project is named “House of Film”, it is a cinema centre located in Leicester, it contains bars, cafes and restaurants, exhibition spaces, public and green spaces, one large cinema intended for popular mainstream movies and three smaller cinemas for specialised film and independent filmmakers.

 

My initial research led me to choose the Cardinal Telephone Exchange Tower, a modernist building constructed in the 70s, to deconstruct and reinterpret in a way that would serve the community but would also give it a character and identity, thus integrating it in the fabric of the city. 

 

The second but equally important influence on the project was the lack of quality public space within the city of Leicester, public space designed specifically to be attractive to the public. Therefore I decided to create a building that would act as a meeting place for the community, a space to rest, play and converse.

I am currently looking to join a practice so that I can continue to gain experience and develop my creative skills.
