The Friargate Rec.

Hi my name is Nisha and I have completed my third year undergraduate architecture course and Coventry University. I have enjoyed the progression of understanding design in architecture and the emphasis on sustainable and inclusive design techniques.

The aim of my project was to create a journey at the outskirts of Coventry City Centre, on a site surrounded by movement for the young people of Coventry. The project explores the history of the city through arts and crafts as a reflection of Coventry's industrial heritage. Coventry has developed from a city of craftsmanship to a city of education through its universities, galleries and museums. This transition directs the project to merge the past and present together, creating a diverse and artistic future.

Ground Floor Plan. The ground floor functions consist of a cafe, and the main making spaces which are workshops and art studios. This allows for an interaction between the users inside the functions and people passing by to catch a glimpse into the movement of the building.
