Designs on life

Aspiring architect and St Helens College student, Natalie Heywood, has scooped a prestigious prize awarded by the University of Liverpool School of Architecture.
The Access to Higher Education student applied for a place at the world-renowned School of Architecture which was established in 1894 after she completed a year-long course at St Helens College.
After receiving a conditional offer from the university, the London-born student welcomed the excellent news of being shortlisted for the impressive Elmes Prize.
The prize, which is in memory of Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, a prominent city architect and designer of St Georges Hall, was established to encourage ‘the study of architecture or the fine arts within the University of Liverpool School of Architecture’.
It is awarded to the student who submits the highest standard of work in their portfolio as part of their application to the university.
Natalie scooped the recognised award and £1000 prize after impressing the university with her application and portfolio submission for a place on the university’s BA (Hons) programme.
The budding architect received the award at the highly-anticipated Degree Show in the School of Architecture in June 2014.
Natalie, 24, said: “I have always had a desire to go to university and thanks to the Access course at the college I am now able to fulfil my ambition. I have always had a keen interest in architecture and the course I studied at the college has enhanced my creativity and desire to succeed within the creative industry.”
