This festive period we are raising awareness and money for LandAid, the property industry charity which delivers life-changing services for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness in the future, and who may be without shelter this Christmas.
We challenged our designers at Chetwoods to create pieces of artwork around the theme of ‘shelter’. This is in the hope that their art will inspire our community to join us in donating to this very important cause.
The artworks will be available to view across our social media through the Christmas period. A selection of them will also be going on sale in the New Year to raise further funds.
As architects we use drawing as a way of communicating architectural ideas: whether with pen on paper or on a digital tablet, drawing is an invaluable skill for an architect to acquire and practise.
At Chetwoods this is actively encouraged by Laurie Chetwood who is leading this campaign and incorporates art, architecture and landscape into his design work to create beautiful places and spaces that enhance happiness and wellbeing.
“As an architect I use traditional drawing skills every day as a crucial part of the design development process: nothing beats sketching to visualise and communicate ideas. Drawing allows unrestricted imagination and the expression of a unique idea.
I hope the artwork created by our designers will catch the eye of our audience and inspire those who are able to donate to this worthwhile cause to help those who cannot take shelter for granted this Christmas.”
