About me

Welcome to the UCLan Architectural Technology Final Year Degree Show and Review 2021.

My name is Nashra Khan and I am an Architectural Technologist graduate from the University of Central Lancashire. I invite you to explore my final year design work so you are able to have a look at the work I have produced over the year.

I hope you are able to get an understanding of who I am through my work and my 3 years at the University. I also have a personalised website that contains all the work that I have produced over the year.

Enjoy browsing and please do not hesitate to get in touch.

England has a housing shortage, and there are fewer homes being built. It is clear that we need to build more homes. But in the rush, we need to think about what we are building. Therefore, in this project, I decided to build 6 semi-detached properties using 3 materials, which include Traditional Build, Hempcrete Build, and SIP Build. The reason for using 3 different materials for this construction project was to explore and understand which construction materials are the most effective to use in the 21st century that will provide passive housing, fundability, effectiveness and a robust life long home.

All important details (foundation, ridge, eaves, cill, head, jamb and party wall details) are placed into a table for a better and clear comparison for each of the material chosen for the project.

The site chosen is a land in Preston at Weeton Road alongside the motorway. With the brief presented, the site carries many opportunities for the new residential build project.

The existing site plan was extremely important for me to understand the placement of the buildings and the new road and pavement layouts.

The proposed site plan had to be delivered correctly, as this will allow to implicate the placement, access around the site and layout of houses and space.

The final ground floor layout of this design brief achieves a simple RIBA home spatial layout for 5 members including living room, kitchen/dining area, bathroom and a small storage area.
