New Hall is a newly completed 350 bed halls of residence and we designed a vibrant new student hub beside the main entrance.

We fitted out the shell space creating a range of settings to for relaxing, socialising and study,  creating a series of formal and informal spaces which could support individual study or collaborative group work. A separate quiet area, screened off by a full height glass partition, provides “hot desks” and plectrum shaped desks facilitate group working.

Furniture has been carefully selected to support the range of activities and a large format rubber floor tile has been used to create a random, urban scale to the space.
