  • Through the exploration of light and shade, colour composition and contrast, acoustic quality of spaces and the use of different textures and materials , a multi-sensory experience is created. The effect is to redefine place, enhance spatial perception and celebrate / respond to the strengths of the visually impaired / blind (the other 25% senses) to facilitate Orientation, Relaxation and Enjoyment. PRUDENCE LAI ( RIBA / ARB Part II ) My Design Thesis aims to explore methodologies in enhancing and privileging the potentials of individuals who suffers from inability of visual sense of perception, through the use of LIGHT, COLOUR, SOUND and MOVEMENT wsa BSc (hons) MArch at Cardiff University MArch Final Design Thesis (2013) : Distilling and Amplifying Human Senses - Performing Arts Centre for the Visually Impaired

  • Due to the nature and the scale of the project, good team work and communication between colleagues were extremely important as we had to ensure all the drawings and details of each zone were consistent and considered as a whole. Internal renderings using Autodesk 3Ds Max PRUDENCE LAI ( RIBA / ARB Part II ) In the very beginning of my employment at GHM Rock Townsend, I was given the opportunity to produce a package of tender drawings for one of seven divided zones (the kitchen/servery/dining area). The required drawings included demolition drawings, GA plan, floor finishes, ceiling plan, sections and elevations.

  • This project has massively increased my knowledge, improved my organisation and communication skills and I very much enjoyed the responsibilities entailed.   Client University of Westminster Location Marylebone, London Value £20 million Status Completed 2012 Photographs of the 1st Floor Library at University of Westminster PRUDENCE LAI ( RIBA / ARB Part II ) During my time at GHM Rock Townsend, I was given the opportunity to be in charge of the Westminster University ‘s first floor library and offices refurbishment project, where I had to design, produce the entire tender package as well as choosing materials and furnitures for the scheme. I was actively involved in attending site visits, client and design team meetings and communicating with various parties including with user clients, engineers, consultants, specialists and products providers.   Although the scale of the project was not huge, it became complicated when we decided to remove the existing suspended ceiling and expose the structures and services above, in order to increase the floor to ceiling height and the quality of the space. I worked closely with the M&E engineer to resolve the technical issues. BSc (hons) MArch at Cardiff University GHM Rock Townsend : Marylebone Campus, University of Westminster wsa

  • Nuneaton Academy was one of the pfs academies framework which we won in 2012. The brief included a combination of new build, refurbishment and remodelling. The Masterplan provides clear organisation of learning environment which fosters a sense of cohesion and community. The main entrance route initiates a ‘street’ spine that runs through the entire campus bordering the central square and terminating at the new build house block entrance. I was working under the guidance of the project leader and another Architect, to develop and prepare designs, tender and presentation drawings, models, renderings, specifications, schedules, etc. During the process, the team worked competitively under intense pressure, while engaging with the school, client and other members of the bidding team.

  • The team concentrated expenditure on major interventions rather than piecemeal alterations, which facilitated the construction of a new standalone building to house the expansion. A large external terrace at first floor level provides an additional outdoor classroom to compensate for the reduction in available play area on the site. The building is hermetically sealed to combat road noise and pollution. Mixed-mode ventilation was employed, while attenuated grills and glazed louvres in the atrium provide fresh air to the interior spaces. The dramatic cladding contrasts with the original school building with its palette deriving from tones visible in the surrounding environment. In this project, I was involved in working on construction detail drawings, BREEAM assessment and presentations.
