Functional design solutions that allow for safety considerations during construction, operation and maintenance

Cosmetic Detailing

Fibre glass is not only noticed by those within the manufacturing industry, it is now also has its uses being developed by designers and architects who want to add more qualities to the properties that they are involved in.

Interior design can become very repetitive and overlooked by the general public, carbon fibre accents can create a more vibrant and aesthetically pleasing look to a property. A hotel that was once used dated and slow can become modern and welcoming to the public.

Designers that work with carbon fibre will also often work with lighting and pair the two together to create warming yet modern environments. When carbon fibre details have a back light they become translucent which can add depth to an omit hallway or bathroom.

Cosmetic details such as handrails and platforms can be replaced from wood and metal to carbon fibre which will allow more intricate designs to be evolved. As well as the overall appearance that the alternative gives, carbon fibre is also more hygienic as it can be cleaned easier than materials used previously such as wood. This is ideal for items such as handrails in public environments.

Architectural design strategy

The people participating in our project develop the vision into a more detailed ‘story of change’ that includes strategic themes and priority projects. The identification of issues and areas of investigation and design into strategic themes is an important characteristic of the process. It identifies the critical issues and projects that need to be addressed at cross-boundary level.

They create in parallel a number of spatial options or scenarios for implementing the themes and projects and test these by simulating what the impact would be. The options, together with the results of the testing, are often put out to wider community consultation. Once feedback has been analysed, an option is taken forward and refined, including more detailed design briefs or proposals for specific sites.

The key output of this phase is a spatial architectural strategy, which summarises the story of change for the area, preferred themes, projects and the spatial option for their implementation. It is published widely in the area in formats that are easy to understand, to assist public buy in.

Those participating then prepare and publish a design guide to underpin the implementation of more detailed proposals: the success of the urban design process will be judged by the quality of the buildings, spaces and places that are developed.
