Final Project


The intent of this project is to create a new community space in Selly Oak. The concept behind this project is establishing a new community by regenerating the old one. It focuses on the renewal of The Selly Oak Institute which sits in the heart of the town. The design further explores how conservation of a listed building can help give the residents a sense of identity within their community and most importantly unite them.

Hi I’m Rhiannon, in my studies I have explored how architecture within a space can reflect the identity and heritage of a community.
I want to be able to use my degree to help redesign historical buildings and make them functional for modern day use.
