Group 25

The Miners Community Art and Music Centre is a community-led multifunctional venue which hosts a cinema, gym, music, café and more. This project will look at providing an outside social community seating space with planting for users and visitors to the centre. The design will be a wood decking at the entrance to the cinema and community gym. It needs creative design to encourage social interaction between members of Moston and provide pleasant seating space for people to relax. The project requires a set of drawings and visualisations with the intention of creating a physical model.

The Miner’s centre was formally used as a pit head bath for Moston Colliery. It was used for miners to clean after working in the Moston Colliery. The coal mines were closed in 1950 and the building became used for a working man’s club until it was left derelict and neglected of years. In 2012 the building was repurposed and turned into a multifunctional community hub which entertains and educates hundreds of people within the community. They host a series of workshops and events to improve to social inclusion within the area. There is a café and bar which hosts music events and there is a cinema and gym in the back. The project started as a place for people with mental health issues but has since become a refuge for anyone within the community.

Louis and Paula took control over the neglected former miners wash house in 2012 and have spent the last 10 years transforming the building into the vibrant community hub that it is today. Louis and Paula took over the building which had no water or electricity and have since, with the help of friends and volunteers, revitalised it. They run the organisation along with 8 volunteers who manage the café, events, and weekly clubs they host. As the organisation expands, they require outdoor decking which we are looking to design.

During this project you will develop a variety of skills such as team building and people skills when communicating with the client. During the design process you will develop skills such as sketching, critical thinking and site research as we develop the project. We will then move on to the production and finalisation of the project which will develop skills such as graphic design, Software skills and model making.

These skills will be developed during the project as we engage with the client and the design process.
