'The Red Hand Reaches Out'


third year term 2/3

Located within a city block in central Brighton, neighbouring Old Steine Gardens, the design is a smaller more intimate space for Nick Cave's 'Conversations With' Tour, bringing people together, a method of collective healing. User experience is key to the design, and close attention has been paid to details including lighting and materiality choices for this sensitive programme. The series of space invoke a journey for the user, travelling through a series of 'frames', of views and moments to be enjoyed.
