The areas g2 and g3 will host the café and restaurant area, and directly below in the basement will house the kitchen facilities. Food will be transferred from floor to floor using a dumb waiter. From my findings I discovered that the propped area for the restaurant and café was a reading room in the Victorian area Main users group for using the facility in the day (Café) will be students/tutors, museum visitors this includes families and the older generation. So consideration for all generation needed to be considered. The user groups in the evening will be the same, but it will be open to the public that just want to come in for the dining experience. The concept for the café/restaurant is to turn g3 into a Victorian library, showcasing the museums book collection. In the day the area can be used as an exhibition area and in the evening a dining experience Careful consideration will be made to ensure that the current Victorian features in the building are all kept and ensure that in this design process none of features are damaged

Gallery Restuarant/Cafe Proposal The cafe area will be open from morning till the afternoon. It will be an area for quick lunch meals and an area for people to unwind on their breaks. All café meals will be made at behind the counter for quick and efficient service. There are 44 seats available with a combination of booths and tables & chair. The booths are situated next to the window overlooking Peel Park building. As the restaurant area is converted into a Victorian library the theme is brought into the café area, but I have made the area funkier by having an artificial tree put behind the bar with books hanging off it. It will be a feature in the room that will attract visitors to come into the café.

The mood board illustrates shapes, colours and furniture styles from 1950s- 1980s. The particular era that I was fond about was the 1970s and I felt that this decade will be used as a theme for the cooking show. The reason I chose to go down this route was that it will be unique as current cooking shows are modern and sleek so choosing a different persona the show will be distinctive.

Hide Project- Salford Kersal Upon creating my design for the outdoor nature trail, I chose to do some initial research on possible materials and joints that would help to assist me during my design development. For my research I decided that out of the materials categories that I look at, wood would be a more appropriate material to use over metal. Although metal would provide a design that would stand out due to its properties and aesthetics, it’s not as environmentally friendly as wood would be. The finish of metal could look nice over time with the rust occurring and for it to be more environmentally friendly reclaimed metals could have been used. Even though metals were a possibility when creating my design, I felt that wood is more in keeping with the woodland and I believe it would be much more appropriate as it would blend in with its surrounding. Whilst researching into materials I felt that oak was the appropriate materials to use to make the components. Oak has many benefits due to his properties and is well known materials in the furniture industry. The characteristic of oak include, its hard, strong, stiff and has a little natural decay resistance. This is a benefit as the components will be exposed to weathering, so we can rely on a long life span. It can be machine cut fairly well and as all the components have the same measurements apart from the bird lookout, it will be ecologically good for the environment. Oak is also aesthetically pleasing and as the oak ages it turns a silvery colour that would look good with the environment. A local timber merchant will provide the oak that is locally grown. The design of the components consists of two boxes either side of the planks of wood that make the seating base. The boxes contain soil with planting inside, the reason for this choice was because I wanted the design to camouflage into the environment of the woodland, but yet make it aesthetically pleasing. The seating/ bench will also contain planting, but only on the right hand side, and on the left side it will contain a bin that will to avoid litter been thrown on the floor. I have also decided that I would be like the lookout point to have a plant that will grow around the structure, but it will have to be maintained frequently so that it doesn’t over grow and cover the structure.

The construction of the components consists of a mortise and tenon joint. The tenon part of the joint will be attached on the plank of wood that will act as the seating base and mortise part will be on either side of the seating boxes. Tenon part of the joint normally overhang and have a wedge to avoid the joint coming back out to gain strength but I have decided to make it flush against the box base. To gain the strength of the component there will be a screw either side of the joint to stabilise and make the structure stronger. To protect the screw from weathering I have used a gold screw cap that will be fixed at the end of the screw, this is aesthetically pleasing plus it has good purpose. The construction of the components is all the same by using the same joint and the screws, and in the future it will be easy to replace any part of the construction. The following factures are benefits of using wood for building: Wood has the lowest energy consumption and the lowest C02 emissions Seen as a sustainable and dependable supply and will lower the threat of acid rain due to low levels of sulphur Encourages forestry to expand, increasing carbon sink effect and reducing CO2 in the atmosphere I am pleased with the end result, I feel that I have answered the questions in the brief appropriately. The design will adapt with the environment of the nature trail and will enhance the walk making it a pleasurable experienced. As the design has been incorporated with the environment I feel that it will create a different experience as the steps will, assist people walking down the steep hill, seats to help admire the scenery, and the lookout stand to experience the wildlife in trail. The fact that the design of the components is simple, it can be reproduced and constructed easily. To improve the design I could have researched more into the joint and construction of the design. Also I could have developed the design through more extensive research into a bird hut to provide a shelter for the visitors. Another facture that I could have researched into is preservatives to protect the wood to increase the life span of the product.

History of the Hall The name Ordsall has Old English origins being the personal name ‘Ord’ and the word ‘halh’, meaning a corner or nook, which has become the modern dialect word ‘haugh’. The name first appears in print in 1177 when ‘Ordeshala’ paid two marks towards an aid, a feudal due or tax. Ordsall Hall is a former moated Tudor mansion, the oldest parts of which were built during the 15th century although there has been a house on the site for over 750 years. The manor was described in 1351 as a messuage 120 acres (48.6 ha) of land, 12 acres (4.9 ha) of meadow and 12 acres (4.9 ha) of wood. Built in 1360, the Star Chamber, is the oldest wing of the hall. The original cruck hall was replaced by the present Great Hall in 1512 with further alterations and additions made during the 17th century, including the present day kitchen which dates back to the 1630’s and a modest brick house added onto the west end in 1639. The hall remained in occupation until 1871, it was only during the last quarter of the 19th century that Ordsall Hall became engulfed "in mean streets and industry“. From 1875 Haworth's Mill leased the hall and used it as a working men's club. The hall then went on to become a clergy training school in 1896 with new windows being installed on the south wall, the idea was to reflect the use of the hall both internally and externally. Salford Corporation purchased the hall in 1959 and opened to the public in 1972 as a period house and local history museum. Closed once more in 2009 for further restoration, the hall reopened in 2011.

Architectural characteristics Arches were smaller & flattened as opposed to the pointed Gothic arches, dormer windows, high spiralled chimneys, leaded windows with smaller panes, lower stories were sometimes made from stone, overhanging first floors, pillared porches, thatched roofs and vertical & diagonal blackened timber.

15th – 16th Century Four Centred Tudor door  Decorative lintel – placed only above the front entrance  Outer vertical boards  Inner face horizontal battens  Battens secured by nail studs  Nails driven from the outer face  Nails cleated over on the inner face  Joints – Butt jointed, half lapped or tongue & grooved  Gaps between boards covered by a moulded cover strip on the outer face

Strap & hook hinge

Handle  Strap fits around both sides of the door  End of the external strap was shaped like a hook  Fixed directly to the timber jamb

Original latch

 Iron thumb latch is the predecessor of the earlier wooden latch.

The wooden latch worked from the outside by a string tied to the latch, passing through a hole in the door, made secure by the insertion of a peg, preventing the latch being raised. Wooden bolts were also common to secure the door from the inside.

 Vertical door handle circa 17th – 18th century  Escutcheons were usually square and delicately worked often with gothic tracery or cusped decoration  Escutcheons were not fitted to doors of rooms of little importance  Large leaf shaped ends  Large rectangular back plate Original ironmongery A ring and spindle passing through the centre of a decorative iron cover plate, operating a latch on the inner face of the door together with a ‘stock-lock’ – a lock with a wooden case.




Jetty  Close boarded with boards fixed parallel to joists – 1700’s

 Close boarded with boards fixed across joints – 18th century replica

 Revealed joists

Stairs  Originally a jetty with quarter round end to joists – removed and supported by the lower oriel window in the 1800’s  Projects out beyond the dimensions of the floor below  Increase upper storey floor space  Provided protection from damp and kept wattle and daub walls dry

 Straight flight of framed tread and risers  Steps pegged to 2 inclined bearers set at 45 degree angles  Built between 2 walls  Steps formed of baulks of solid timber triangular in section  16th century Newel staircase  Solid cased wood blocks  Built in inconspicuous areas to provide larger floor space  Broad short flights with wide treads and easy rise

 Tudor (1485 – 1603) – Compacted earth strewn with rushes or straw, treated with ox blood and ashes  17th Century – Brick/stone  18th Century – Boarded ground floor joists  19th Century - Tiles




Roof  Oriel window  Unglazed  Fitted underneath the bressummer/eaves level  Usually built at first floor level and supported by brackets or corbels

 King post roof truss  Single frame  Mortice and tenon joints  Secret notched lap joint  Decorative dentil moulding placed across the width of the tie beam

 Criss-cross/lattice/ polyhedron/diamond pattern  Square quarries only began being used in the 17th century  Quarries joined together to form the window light using 'H'-section strips of lead, called 'cames', which were soldered together to make up one large glazed area

 Stone /slate tiles  Thatched roofs were especially popular in the countryside as the potential fire risk was not as serious as in the towns .

 Catholics used the grapevine during the Reformation (16th century) as a secret symbol of their faith.

Walls  Timber was joined together by the use of wooden pegs

 Sunk quatrefoil  Forms no structural role  Generally restricted to important elevations  Constructed of oak  Tudor houses were deemed half timber due to being filled with wattle and daub  Square panels for wattle and daub to be placed  Added comfort and warmth  Horizontal rails are one continuous length  Muntins were pegged and morticed and tenoned  Box frame construction - arch brace & western school  Timber beams are uneven because they were cut by hand
