Project: Uninest Student Accommodation – Highfield Park
Architect: DTA Architects
M&E Engineers: Murphy Belton
Interior Architect: Think Contemporary
Status: Completed February 2020
Working alongside GSA for the second time, we were engaged to design all of the student service areas in their newest scheme Highfield House, on North Circular Rd. They really wanted to up the game on this one and create something very unique that would stand out in the ever growing student accommodation market. We zoned the space so that they could be multifunctional, insuring to get the most out of each space.
“We engaged Think Contemporary Interior Designers to carry out the full interior space design for our amenity and management areas in our new Student Accommodation scheme at Highfield Park, North Circular Road. The aim in all our buildings is to provide a range of personal and communal spaces, in keeping with our exceptional brand standards that provide the students with all the necessary spaces and services required to make our building a home away from home for them.
Spaces, such as individual and group study spaces, communal kitchen, a fully equipped gym and fitness studio, TV room, gaming area, cinema screening zone and multi-use social spaces have each been uniquely designed, providing all the functional requirements necessary, while also bringing a very high quality level of design and attention to detail in each space. There is also a consistency apparent throughout the design, ensuring that each space blends seamlessly into the overall design for the building interior.
As a client, our high expectations have been exceeded in the design and quality of the end product at Highfield Park and how it enhances the students use and enjoyment of our building. We are confident that through Think Contemporary’s design, the finished product can be qualified as ‘best in class’ when compared to other PBSA in the market.”
