Specialists in bespoke children’s play spaces and play equipment with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Always operating under ROSPA guidelines.
We have several school projects under our belt and are proud to have helped many local schools bring a touch of something special to their pupils; outside learning zones, recreational areas, wall murals and refurbishments all with functional and fresh design.
We specialise in commercial expansions and fit outs and have the experience and portfolio to help any business achieve the unconventional for their premises. From restaurants to bars, cafes, shops, visitor attractions and entertainment venues.
A unique string to our bow we have deep roots and experience in scenic theming and joinery. Unique builds can stand out with specialist finishes, extensive knowledge of products and techniques that can only have come from years in the scenic environment. Sculpture, prop making, scenic painting and creative joinery. Large or small scale.
We boast the design and build of North Yorkshire’s first shipping Container Park. We understand the process of planning and executing such a task as well as supporting local councils and bid projects deliver exciting new concepts to tired looking streets.
Working for local councils, bid groups or local businesses, short term and long term street rejuvenation installations to floral art exhibitions, we’ve got it covered.
Our creative background means we have a great eye for unique solutions and can transform a space with clever use of unconventional joinery. Storage solutions, original design, bespoke kitchens, campervan conversions and unique outside spaces. We can deliver a grand design into your home or business.
Our unconventional origins come from years working in the museum and heritage sector both on a national and international platform. Our team has the background and experience to offer a full spectrum of skills in this field. Bespoke joinery and scenic art; light engineering; interactives; graphic design; graphic production; A/V; electronics; show and exhibit lighting; full installation service.
At Unconventional Design we care about our local community and do what we can to help facilitate and assist local groups. This has included art projects with The Prince’s Trust, a street art community mural design with The Kyra Women’s project, several school art projects and the design session and installation of a mural at the Wetherby Young Offenders Institute.
Unconventional Design have and will take on work in many sectors, including museums, heritage, visitor, science and family entertainment centres, theme parks, stately homes, children’s play areas, bars, hospitality, corporations, television and film production companies, theatres, visitor attractions, retail, schools, community and street rejuvenation projects
Whatever it is we do, we try not to do the simply ‘ordinary’ and have established an impressive portfolio of projects, all reflecting our originality.
Here are some of the projects our business and our team have worked on over the past 25 years which give testament to our skill and varied work base.
