‘Sustainable Social Housing’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

The aim of this project was to design the interior and exterior of a museum. For this project, I opted to create a series of sustainably built social houses, based on the idea of PassivHaus design. This is a style of design which ensures houses are as environmentally and economically friendly as possible. I used some PassivHaus design methods in my design. However, I had to remain within the budget of the average council house. The PassivHaus methods I employed were draft excluders, double glazing and accommodation for renewable energy sources and outlets. I investigated natural light verses artificial light, and how they impact mental health. I therefore chose to include as many and outdoor naturally lit spaces as possible.

‘The Art of Preservation’

Progressed from

Stewards School — GCSE

Statement

The aim of this project was to design the interior and exterior of a museum. To do this I researched into existing museums to ease myself into designs. I also researched architectural styles, including contemporary, deconstructivism and renaissance. From my initial ideas I came up with some developments and then picked my favourite idea. The picture above presents my final idea using the CAD software SketchUp. The building will cover 440m2 (excluding stairs). There are 3 floors including; a café, staff and security room, reception, toilets, inside picnic area and exhibit rooms. It will be made from concrete and painted white.

‘Costal Beauty’

Progressed from

The John Warner School — GCSE

Statement

This project is about the beauty of the coast showing the great things that makes the coast beautiful. The design was a heart inspired by the tide coming onto the beach. This is to show the love we should have for the coast and how we should be keeping it safe rather than destroying it. When I was designing the piece, I thought about people having something that they can wear to remember the days they have had at the coast. The piece would be a reminder that the coast should be something that we should treasure.

‘Prevailing Summer Villa’

Progressed from

The John Warner School — GCSE

Statement

I started this brief with the idea to design a vehicle from a fiction sequel for a game/ movie.

This project was to design a modern prevailing summer-villa inspired by the traditional Santorini architecture. I used an app called Minecraft to help me develop my ideas and use the materials that I will be considering throughout the design process. I would use the app again as it allowed me to be creative and achieve development of my ideas. Using this method was really easy and I actually had a lot of fun designing the development ideas. From those images I wanted to design my Summer-villa made from corrugated cardboard. This was due to being limited to materials during the pandemic, whilst also being easy to work with. I decided to paint the cardboard white to represent the traditional white concrete buildings that Santorini is known for.

‘Mental Health Centre’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

This project outlines 2 years of knowledge whilst creating something unique. I decided to create a Mental Health Centre. This is a way for my dad’s legacy to live on as well as creating more awareness for mental health encouraging a safe place for people reach out help. This building is for those with low risk mental health. I wanted to try a create a building that doesn’t feel too foreign for people or feel too homely. I was hoping to create a safe place where you would feel welcome and have fun.

‘Scene2 Reception’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

This project is based around a prop making company I work for and focuses on redesigning and developing the reception into something more understandable and logical. The images above show some of the processes I used achieve my final designs. For example, the first drawing shows some different designs I created using a colour coded system to show what would be placed where to give me a nice overlook and understanding of the design.

‘Holistic Healing Centre’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

The idea behind my FMP was to design a healing/wellness centre focused on a holistic approach which helped lead much of my design process. I research into therapies and the environment which suits them best which helped aid my design. The first and second images show two of my initial ideas which I visualised by creating maquettes out of various materials. I later added some smaller details on Photoshop to bring the visuals to life. In the last picture you can see my final scale model, for which I had to improvise and use clay and a ping-pong ball I cut in half due to material shortages on lockdown and the outcome was a success.

‘Systematic Display Furniture’

Progressed from

Bishops Stortford High School  — GCSE 

Statement

This project is my personal favourite even though there were struggles because of COVID-19 it really showed my skills to adapt and overcome certain issues. My favourite part of this brief was the making of my final model, I spray painted it red to give it a special look and I personally think it turned out very well. Because of my preparation with my other model which is the polystyrene snake that went smoothly when making it, I was able to create the best possible final model.

‘Downfall Deterrent’

Progressed from

Chauncy School — GCSE

Statement

This project is about a situation that happened in the beginning of 2020, which saw the downpour and the torrential rain which began flooding homes and businesses up and down the country, seeing towns, and businesses at breaking point.

The idea behind this project is to help my local area prevent flooding and protect the local town. The idea of this started by gathering ideas and developing my ideas through inspirational designers such as Ron Arad and Daniel Libeskind whose ideas helped influence my own design ideas. These designs focused on making a concept that uses all aspects of what I have learnt to date.

After this I researched into Jacques Fresco, a well-known futurist as his designs are very heavily inspired upon. I also researched into Issac Assimov as he was inspiration for No Man’s Sky. From here I began my design work, influenced by No Man’s Sky’s ship generation works, I designed each piece of the ship; nose, wings/side adornments and thruster, separate from each of the other pieces. This enabled me to ensure that the would fit well together. The final model I made has been made entirely out of cardboard due to recent events I didn’t have access to the equipment I usually use to make my final models.
