Newhaven Fort is located on the south coast of England which was built to protect the harbour at Newhaven. It kept its heritage almost untouched.



The requirements for both locations are to get the target users to physically come to the locations and learn about nature and/or heritages of them.

The target users for Stanmer Park is children but any age ranges are accepted for Newhaven Fort.

To accomplish the project, we go through some design exercises and follow a workflow such as brainstorming, visual research, further brainstorming methods, ideation, evaluating ideas with six hats etc.
