“Remarkably this project was completed in only 8 weeks of starting the course.”
I’ve just finished marking, this years students first design project, and thought some of you might be interested in seeing what we do.
Your first project is based around a real client and site as are all the student projects, as I believe its important to give you as much real life experience as we can.
Your first assignment is a courtyard garden, approximate 100 square metres in size
This particular site is in Oxford and is part of a terrace of modern town houses with their garages on the ground floor and the living accommodation on the first and second floors.
The house has an existing balcony for entertaining, but the students have installed a flight of stairs giving access into the garden from the first floor.
The client brief was for no lawn, a substantial water feature and a secondary private sitting space for entertaining and eating out.
Remarkably this project was completed in only 8 weeks of starting the course.
The students have already covered 3 dimensional special design, they have been introduced to computer modelling, have been taught basic rendering techniques as well as studying garden history , art and planting design.
It’s no accident that our students are considered to be some of the best in the world.
I believe as a college we produce better designers in 8 week than many schools produce in one year.
This is down to 3 things
Our schools unique teaching style
The students hard work and dedication
And the fact that all are students are hand picked via a 4 day selection process so we only take the very best.
