Portsmouth University

The ambition of this five-day event was to work with Wymering Manor Trust by assisting with the creation of inspiring, creative and beautiful design ideas to revitalise and reinvigorate the existing Wymering Manor currently occupied by the Trust.

‘Wymering Manor is the oldest dated house in the city of Portsmouth, and as such the Wymering Manor Trust is determined that when the building is repaired and reopened, visitors will easily be able to appreciate and understand the significance of the house within its present and past surroundings.’

Just under 60 Architecture and Interior Design students from the School of Architecture took part in the week-long event making up ten teams of Under-graduate and Post-graduate students. During the event students were given the opportunity of a site visit and tour of Wymering Manor which helped them with the design process. After this an intensive design workshop was held for one of the five days where 10 academic staff joined the Project Office team to assist students with designs and concepts. The week culminated in a professional presentation to the client and invited guests, of the students strategies, concepts and final proposals for the re-generation of Wymering Manor.
