Hello,  I'm Mitch.

 

With experience in, interior, exterior and structural design. I maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact in all of my work. I believe every piece of design can be a work of art.

 

I love my work and enjoy each new project as I get it. Please check out my portfolio and feel free contact me if there is anything else you want to know about me.

 

Thanks for visiting.

UNIVERSITY PROJECTS

 

During my studies at De Montfort University, I carried out a variety of different projects with ranging briefs, clients and locations, a selection of which are described below.    

 

Hang Gliding Centre - Orvieto, Italy  

The brief for this project was to create a new building that was connected to an existing Italian arcade. The building was to be used as a Hang Gliding Centre. I designed a new building to sit over the old, connected by a glazed 2nd floor to give the impression of the new building gilding over the old. The main facade was taught fabric (from glider wings) that could be pulled back to expose the new buildings interior to the Italian summer.  

 

Residential Property - Leicester, UK  

One of my first projects. Based in Leicester on a long, narrow site the brief was to create a house and studio for a young couple that had just moved to the City. I deployed many interesting techniques within the scheme to create a design that suited the client. This project escalated my interest in to the way design can be influenced by sustainable technologies.    

 

Book Shop - Lincoln, UK  

A small 2 week project set in Lincoln, to design a new book shop within the city centre. I created a scheme that was an open inviting book shop that could be extended out into the main square on market days. The building was a contrast to the existing exchange gate to which it joined.
