Yeti Etsy was designed for Newcastle University’s Design Challenge. She won the first place. Dr Maryam Haroutunian assigned us the task of designing the floor
general arrangement as a top-view. I decided to take it to the next level, thus designing her in 3D. Two different hulls were designed, an ice-breaking one and
one for reduced resistance. The finals attended lecturers, PhD students and professional naval architects and engineers.
Yeti Etsy has 4 floors and the bridge. There is a central staircase-elevator according to all safety regulations and four weather-proof safety doors in each floor. On
the 4th floor there is a helipad with straight access to the elevator. There are 4 escape roots, one on each side of the superstructure. The fore one is in the
superstructure, whereas the rest are non-slippery.
She has two communal spaces and a gym. 3 wet and 2 dry labs are on the open deck level, as is the hospital too.
