Maya Williams BA (Hons) Interior Design

I attempt to design concepts that are innovative, with the intention of creating spaces that users will always remember. As technology is becoming more advanced, I also try to use materials that are sustainable and cause minimal harm towards the environment. 

Having grown up in London then studied in Manchester, I was able to see, and be inspired by, how stores, bars and restaurants, office spaces and pavilions are designed for cities. 

I have a strong interest in fabric and how it can be incorporated into interior design and architecture. 

“The Mustard Tree X The Linen Project” concept is to create a space for art students and graduates to showcase their work, and create networks with, potential employers. 

The Ground Floor provides a restaurant and bar, where users can dine in separate pods, secluded by curtains. This idea came in response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, in order to follow the social distancing rules. 

The First Floor houses the main three art galleries for exhibitions by artists and students. The intention is for the Mustard Tree site to become an “art village,” where artists and art students (from a range of disciplines) can do work in the art studios provided; cut fabric at the fabric store, and to also exhibit any film projects at the cinema. Visitors are also able to use the Linen Project’s store, where artists can sell their merchandise.
