Multileveled-Vertical-Urban-Allotments, Lucie Sadakova

In the eleventh of our series of ‘Creatives of the Week’ chosen from ARTS THREAD’s graduate portfolios, we take a look at the specialisms of industrial, product and spatial design and highlight the portfolio of Lucie Sadakova.

Lucie studied Interior Design at the London College of Communication and her work leans towards sustainable design and regeneration within the city. We picked up on Lucie’s projects for their imaginative reuse of urban areas, turning the city green. Lucie says:

abandoned, disused and derelict buildings of which there are plenty always catch my attention, as well as natural, reused and recycled materials.

Multileveled-Vertical-Urban-Allotments, Lucie Sadakova

Lucie’s graduation project Multileveled-Vertical-Urban-Allotments was designed with inner-London borough Southwark Council in mind. The project

aims to bring an innovative solution to short supply of allotments in urban areas…and can in turn make use of derelict or underused spaces in cities. [It] focused on gardens, more specifically allotments which could be said always represent the places that carry stories of everybody that contributes to them. Allotments are a great alternative for those living in flats without gardens and are growing in popularity. However allotments are in short supply especially in high density urban areas of London such as Southwark.

The project aims to bring an innovative solution by designing multi-levelled vertical urban allotments which in turn make use of derelict or underused spaces. Eventually becoming a multiple functional building that is open to the public, offers an interpretation centre for schools and seasonal use for those affected by S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder), this all contributes to sustainable development in London.

Students' Common Room, Lucie Sadakova

Student’s Common Room Project

The aim of the project was to design a common room for the London College of Communication students of 2012. The common room will be based in the proposed student halls building… The concept of the design is based on the research of architect Yona Friedman who questions the role of the architect and the lack of involvement of the ‘final user’ in the design process.

The proposed design consists of a KIT-OF-PARTS that can be combined and put together in various ways and also used indoors and outdoors. The design creates structure that engages its users who have freedom to think of other possibilities and can therefore fulfil more effectively their changing needs. The structure is made out of reclaimed timber or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood and the design is accompanied by the wooden planting pots that offer space and opportunity to increase greenery in the Elephant & Castle area.
