Project carried out whilst at Studio KAH

International Open competition finalist: This was a competition organised by Liverpool Biennial to design a boat station and activity centre in Sefton: A canal-side location on the Leeds to Liverpool Canal linking through to the South Docks. The design concept : ‘The Vessel’, was based on an upturned ice-boat, of rough textured oak and glass planks, with a colourful ‘cargo’ of containers inside to house serviced accommodation. The structure was designed to open and close for seasonal and adapted use. Collaboration with light artist Jo Fairfax.

Approximate value £500k
