BA (Hons) Interior Design

Stephanie Jenkinson

 ‘Ilk*’ is a space that aims to give a new life and meaning to a possession based on the owners circumstances. By up-cycling objects that appear to be old and unwanted, we can rekindle a sense of self-expression and understand that a possession is simply an extension of oneself.

 The Mackie Mayor, a former Victorian meat market, has been transformed into a shell that simply encases a new futuristic type internal hub.

 The focus is to concentrate on another form of ‘happiness’ for city dwellers in Manchester who may feel that an environment or lifestyle may not directly relate to who they are, leading to a loss of identity.

As a designer, I am inspired by the impact of strong concept. Hugely driven by the ability to discover underlying connections between design problems and then to successfully pull this through into the design process. I’m intrigued by the full use of senses in space to choreograph a dynamic user experience. I view my work so far, as transient spaces with the use of temporary or predominantly raw materials to capture that particular atmosphere.
