About Made in Oakfield
In partnership with Hull City of Culture 2017, Made in Oakfield was a twelve week design project that culminated in a one-week build. MATT+FIONA worked with students from Oakfield School in Hull, helping them to design their own allotment ‘den’ on the school’s nearby plot. The den serves as a satellite classroom for extra-curricular activities and as a sheltered space when working on the allotment.
During the workshops, MATT+FIONA got each participating student to plan out what type of space they wanted. The students then modelled these designs in 3D. Aspects from all of the designs were then incorporated to form the final design.
The project had a variety of supporters that made it possible. It was built in just 5 days by the students themselves, staff at Oakfield School, the MATT+FIONA team, and a steadfast group of hardworking volunteers.
With great thanks to Hull UK City of Culture 2017 which made this project a reality, and to our generous sponsors made this project possible.
