About me

I am an inclusive designer with a BA (Hons) Interior Design degree and soon to have a Master’s in interior design. My passion lies within inclusive design – I believe that we hold such a power to positively impact peoples lives through design, so why wouldn’t we?

During this project, I was able to expand my knowledge, focus on a topic which I believe isn’t given enough thought and really explore my interests, in a way I could produce something which I believe meets standards in a beautiful way.

This year has allowed me to connect with some amazing professionals, who I have learnt from and grown to admire. I am hopeful to connect with many more at the degree show and through online platforms.

Enjoy the show.

To explore the essence of our five senses. How, in modern day society, we can accommodate all levels of hearing, smell, touch, taste, and sight abilities through design. A hotel where inclusivity is at the core of the design, to build in access as standard, not an afterthought. Five rooms which are centred around each sense, to immerse individuals into an experience which provokes questions, realisations, and imagination. For physical, cognitive, and sensory disabilities, including neurodiversity, to have an environment that will allow them to relax and feel embraced by an atmosphere that is constructed with this at the forefront.
