“It is where good people meet and where friendships old & new are formed over a drink, music & social shindigs” - The Carlton Club The Carlton Club is a long running social club that welcomes a diverse range of members and aims to improve the lives of their local community through the variety of activities available. From live music and art exhibitions to gardening and exercise classes, the club has something to offer for everyone. However, the club also has considerable accessibility issues, due to the age of the building, the different floor levels and the underutilised first floor. In collaboration with our student-led team, this project will explore potential design options for new community spaces on the first floor and disabled access solutions for the ground and first floors. We will be working closely with the members of The Carlton Club to gain feedback based on user opinions and experiences, which will help us to develop our design proposals into an output that can be used by the club for future contractor quotes and funding bids. Throughout the workshop, students will develop their skills in physical and digital model making, teamwork, iterative sketching, Adobe softwares, as well as client presentations and planning application drawings. Join us in accessing all areas of The Carlton Club!

I completed my Undergraduate studies at MSA and participated in MSA Live in 2022, which I really enjoyed.

Carlton Club Live: A weekend Visit

This past weekend, our team revisited the Carlton Club to witness its lively atmosphere.

Employing a serial vision methodology, we meticulously documented the journey from the Club's exterior to interior, with a specific focus on the process of access.

During our observation, we had the unique opportunity to immerse ourselves in the casual setting and truly feel part of the community that thrives within the walls of Carlton Club!
