University Accommodation Concept – July 2020

Simon Cooper Design recently completed a concept proposal for university accommodation and lecture theatres with the concept being based all around bees, their community, hives and ‘bee architecture’.

We had lots of fun working on this project and collaborated with the great people at Studio Cwtch! Such a fun time was had by all, a great project to work on and hopefully more of this in the future.

Motion Music Venue By Simon Cooper Design Voted Best Large UK Club

Motion the Super Club in Bristol Designed by Simon Cooper Design has just been awarded the title of the UK’s best large club beating Fabric, Ministry of Sound, Egg and The Church in Leeds. Great news for us as we have played a big part of their re-development and upgrade over the last few years.

Sticking with the industrial heritage of the site and the classic underground club style we are really please that the new venue upgrade and re-design has met everything that makes a club and music venue work.

As you can see with the images that this place is a club for a large number of people and the simple design, layout and style lets the lighting and music which is changed on a daily basis do the talking.

We are very proud to be part of the team at Motion and indeed proud of Bristol’s club being the best in the UK and being in the top 15 in the world rankings.

A little bit of Eurovision glamour!

Here at Simon Cooper Design we do get a little bit of glamour in our lives from time to time. 🙂 In the last few weeks we’ve been working to help the brilliant people at http://www.holotronica.com (please do check them out) design a simple stage setup that gives this years UK Eurovision song contest entry Lucie Jones the chance to add some special effects and a futuristic look to her video that was filmed last week in cooperation with BBC Studios. All easy stuff for us to do with a bit of very basic 3D to help us get the idea across. You can see the end results in Lucie’s video link below.

The Delhi Smile – Open For Business. Film City. Delhi.

Nice to see something that was designed at a fast pace on my kitchen table, a bedroom in Leamington Spa, at various coffee shops in Bristol and partly in a camper van in West Wales adorning the Delhi Skyline.    Myself and long time friend, collaborator and Architect Jeremy Lim had a great time in India, Bristol & Leamington Spa doing what we do best. Apart from drinking good beer that is…

Who said architecture and design had to be tough eh? It’s hard to believe where this building came from but the images below will give you an idea of the process. From dodgy looking clay models & sketches through to 3D Concept CGI’s and as you will see the final building hasn’t really fallen that far from the original concept. We’re very pleased with it.

SCDC Awarded Retail Phase 2 – Cornmarket Street. Oxford

Just a quick update on the retail store developments on Cornmarket Street Oxford. The feaisbilty and concept design went so well that SCDC have been asked to carry on with the design work through to completion. Lots to do and as usual with retail design it all needs to be ready by Xmas! More to follow so watch this space…

A little bit of resi.

Here at SCDC we’ve been busy working away on our high street retail projects but we’ve recently been getting involved in a bit of residential. Friends of the company have been pushing us for a long time to help them out with their houses so that’s exactly what we-ve been doing. We’ve been meeting, mums, dads, kids and the neighbours and getting everyone involved in the designs and playing around with some 3D modelling.

Below you’ll find a few sketches, images and pics of the projects. We’ve enjoyed enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. 🙂
