MARC R DAVIES Personal Summary

Applications

My particular interests lie in the design of urban environments, and how complex relationships can be created between people and buildings, both in the public and private realms of urban design.

I consider myself an innovative designer, who is well experienced in the development of design concepts, technical drawings, graphics and written reports. I pride myself on my reliability, organisational and time keeping skills, as I have always met deadlines and have acquired the specialised techniques necessary for Landscape Architecture. I’m looking for an engaging, challenging and supportive work environment, where I can contribute and obtain knowledge and ideas required for a professional level.

The Layered Membrane, Castle Market Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

Design Module: Integrated Design Project, jan ‘13-June ‘13. Site: Castle Market, Sheffield City Centre, UK. Rendering Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, AutoCAD, Watercolour, Pastels, Coloured Pencil.

Meandering main route through the site. The River Don walkway.

Wet woodland planting with intermittent coppicing. Structural, aesthetic planting encouraging movement. Temporary wet woodland edge anticipating development. Sustainable urban drainage with riparian species.

Project Description: With the impending relocation of Caslte Market to the other side of the city centre, this site represented the opportunity to create a new layer of development: which connects into the fabric of the surrounding urban infrastructure and embraces the waterside location. The proposed solution to Caslte Market was to reduce the harsh boundaries which separate the local community from the Rivers Don & Sheaf in the form a new ecological urban park - reconnecting Sheffield with these once treasured elements.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

A design which integrates future development, accommodating and welcoming change: Temporary layers. Encourage the local community into the site, through a series of routes and experiences: Inclusive design.

Improve the linkages and legibility between the City Centre and Victoria Quays.

Enhance the role of the rivers: No longer hidden away by harsh boundaries: Increased sense of fluidity at the waters edge.

Design Aims

The above section illustrates the key movements which would encourage the people of sheffield to venture down to the water edges.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

5 Years Initial design has been installed. Temporary viewing layer anticipates future development. Vegetation starting to establish. New builtform has been constructed where marked. Existing builtform adapted where highlighted .

The River Sheaf has long been hidden underneath the urban development of the City - Forgotten.

15 Years Temporary viewing layer removed to accommodate new development. Established vegetation has interlocked topographical layers together. Flexible layer could change function to suit the needs of the Castlegate area.

Strong barrier between the City and the River Don - Separation.

Strategic Diagrams

The diagrams illustrate the stages of implementation of the master plan at years 5 & 15.

Site Investigation

Photos taken during the preliminary research into the current issues of Caslte Market and establishing a framework of how to repsond.

Removal of CastleMarket will create a void in the local community Displacement.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

Early Concept Designs

Experimenting with the layering of organic, cell membrane images to create spaces and paths.

Concept Development

Applying a sense of scale to the concept. The initial concept focused on using these fluid membrane shapes to create community hubs for interaction. During the later stages the emphasis shifted to making the rivers the community focus.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

The Layered Membrane, Castle Market Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

Design Module: Detailed Design Project, April ‘13-June ‘13. Site: Castle Market, Sheffield City Centre, UK. Rendering Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, AutoCAD, Sketch up, Watercolour Project Description: At this level of clarity, it is the small details of the design which have large impacts on the experiences of the spaces. Strategically one of the most important entrances to the area, the first impression of this space has on the user will have a lasting imprint on their perception of the landscape and provides the choice as to the journey they will take through this new public realm.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

Sustainable Urban Drainage

Surface run-off is guided into a sustainable rain garden, which when full adds further visual qualities to this space in the form of a waterfall feature. Vegetation choice tolerates both wet and dry conditions.

The Glass Facade

The opaque glass brick facade of the semi-private residential courtyard fuses the internal space with the external components of the landscape.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

Main Route into Park

The topographical change between the entrance of the site and the park. An array of spaces filter off the main path infrastructure, tempting users to spend time in the site.


Reconnecting The People to The Rivers

The Meeting Point

Geometric glass brick walled spaces provides niches for people to inhabit whilst they stop and pause before entering into the urban park. The fluid, flowing topography contrasts with the structured and rigid walls.

The Main Theshold

The strong architectural form of the Quercus robur ‘Fastigiata’ frames the view towards the Rivers Don & Sheaf and defines the main threshold into the urban park.

Vegetation such as Molinia caerula ‘Variegata’ and Dryopteris filix-mas will soften the hardscape, as the rich herbaceous ground-layer of Astrantia spp. and Digitalis spp. provides visual interest throughout the seasons, whilst tall tree canopies on multi-stemmed trunks, such as Amelanchier lamarckii play with the gradients of light as you follow the meandering routes of the park.

Material Research - Glass Blocks

195

A look into the qualities glass blocks could provide the space. The Waved pattern of the block creates fluid patterns of light and shadows on the surfaces they touch, which would change strength and direction throughout the day. Coupling glass with (in this case) loose aggregate further emphasises the effect. Manipulated silhouettes of people and vegetation provides a sense of separation, but not enough to render the area feeling isolated and uncomfortable.

Cultural Landscape Regeneration

Re-vitalising The Rivelin Valley Cultural Landscape Regeneration

Strategic Plan Key

Design Module: Cultural Landscapes, Oct ‘12-Dec ‘12. Site: The Rivelin Valley, South Yorkshire, UK.

Rendering Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign Project Description: The Rivelin valley offers a glimpse into the industrialisation Sheffield experienced during the 18th Century, but those historic elements which were once regarded so valuably, are being allowed to erode away into the undergrowth and be forgotten. The brief involved creating a vision statement and master plan detailing the main proposals for revitalisation of the site. The vision for the site is focused on safeguarding the historical fabric of the landscape. Measures were implemented to ensure the viability of the cultural heritage for the enjoyment of not only the current, but the future visitors as well.

Extending your Habitat

Psalter Lane Housing Development Site Planning for Sustainable Housing

Housing Typologies

Design Module: Site Planning for Sustainble Housing, Sept ‘12-Nov ‘12. Site: Bluecoats School, Psalter Lane, Sheffield, UK. Rendering Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, Coloured Pencil. Project Description: Since the demolition of the University of Hallam Campus in 2008 the site has since been left empty and detached from the surrounding urban morphology, with the listed ex-Bluecoats School building sitting abandoned in the centre of the site. ‘Extending your Habitat’ is a response to the design brief in which providing safe and accessible outdoor spaces would encourage inhabitants to accept their surroundings as an extension of their homes.

Masterplan Key


Extending your Habitat

Pedestrianised Streets

Terraced houses overlook the public park, separated by the pedestrianised street.

Community Apartment Blocks

Shared communal grounds inbetween apartment blocks encourage outdoor activity.


Extending your Habitat

Residential Street Rendering

The restored central building is to become the focal point of not only the site but the surrounding local community.

Axonometric Pencil Rendering

Varying street materials and blurred boundaries between people & vehicles will promote a slower speed to be undertaken.

Kerwin Road Residence A New Home for The Future

Design Module: Social Aspects of Design, Jan ‘12-June ‘12. Site: Kerwin Road, Sheffield, UK. Rendering Media: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, Sketch Up, Coloured Pencil. Project Description: The design of the surrounding land of a newly acquired single residence for a wheelchair user. The design solution responds to the inclusive requirement of accessibilty around the property, whilst promoting food production and socialisation. By minimizing exterior boundaries of accessibility, the result is a series of spaces which are available for use throughout the year for a variety of functions. The client expressed their desire for a garden reflecting that found in japan, which translated into a series of layers with varying heights, scales & materials


A New Home for The Future

Hardscape construction

A simple palette of high-quality materials would stop the space becoming too busy. The large living-room bay window would look directly onto the raised floral-beds and pool of water.

Rear Garden Sections

The transition between the interior and exterior is effortless and smooth, with the socialising spaces fixed against the property.


A New Home for The Future

Hand Rendered Illustration

Drawings aiding in translating the clients vision into a reality. Raised walkways over a japanese-inspired rock garden, requiring minimal maintenance was discussed during consultations. Strong geometric lines surrounded by rich, moist herbaceous ground-covers.


A New Home for The Future

Perspective View from Bedroom Door

Enabling the client to be able to see how their landscape would look was an important aspect of the module.
