Riverside Architects were shortlisted and invited to submit concept designs for an exciting interior fit out project, to create a new Mediatheque for Bradford’s iconic National Media Museum and the British Film Institute.

The Mediatheque was to be located in one of the upper gallery spaces and provide access to the Museum’s film archives to allow the public, schools, colleges, academics/researchers to view the extensive film & audio footage available.

Our design proposed a striking contemporary interior, with state of the art audio visual equipment accessed from within circular booths enclosed behind striking ‘glass fin’ screens and feature ceiling lighting. Inspiration was taken from lenticular principles of how perception of space might change as the user flows through it, as well as provide the right balance between privacy and openess.

We look forward to working with the Museum in the futu­re & seeing the NMM create the sixth Mediatheque in the UK.

A Riverside Design Studio Architects project is being featured in an article titled “The road to BIM: making it work for small companies” in Construction Manager magazine. NU Construction are a local SME contractor looking to implement BIM into their organisation. The article aims to answer the primary question that small businesses are asking themselves: How can a small organisation justify the time, effort and expense required?

Well NU Construction have been exploring this through the use of our Revit model of an industrial starter unit scheme in Thirsk. The article shows that whats needed is a positive mindset to take the first step and someone within a construction organisation willing to champion the benefits BIM can bring, such as greater efficiency and better construction programming.
