In January, Year 5 started work on a live project.  Commissioned by Impact International, a global company specialising in management learning and development, students considered the business model and opportunities for developing the company’s wooded site Windermere in the Lake District.  Proposals included a retreat for musicians; mindfulness therapy centre and a strategy for depopulation via transient, plug-in living spaces.

After some fantastic presentations, the client, CEO David Williams, selected Tom Boardman as the winner.  Tom proposed a new headquarters building for the company, which raised the company’s local profile as well as giving form to their collective values.  Tom proposed a timber frame structure which bridged the roadside to the forest behind, creating a smooth transition between the local landscape and global business.  Tom wins a night for two at the exclusive Merewood Country House hotel.  Congratulations Tom!
