Tektura transforms a communal area for students

    Kingston Shaw Interior Design was delighted to have completed the design of the communal spaces for its clients Crosslane Group and Prime Student Living with the help of wallcovering expert Tektura. The new student accommodation is situated in Sheffield and is the latest luxury student living project by the companies.

    Featuring a games room, gym, communal eating area, social hub, workspaces and a cinema room, Brass Founders offers students a luxury home from home.

    “Designing this wonderful space was an opportunity to re-imagine our own student accommodation desires and provide a unique space for today’s scholars to live, work and study in,” explains Kingston Shaw’s Managing Director, Kate Kingston. “Working with exceptional professionals on the project allowed us to design a space that combined practicality with luxury and in turn created a multi-functional distinctive and stylish space. We have incorporated a life-size Twister board in the games room and sourced a bird-cage chair for the living room, which we suspect will become the ‘selfie-shot’ of the space.”

    Crosslane engaged with Kingston Shaw Interior Design because it wanted to provide its customers with a boutique hotel feel, which Kingston Shaw is renowned for providing. The spaces were designed to be inviting, elegant and inspiring. Moving away from the traditional student accommodation by using sumptuous fabrics and memorable wallcoverings. The individual spaces exude character and, combined, create a truly unique and personality-led property.

    Kingston Shaw drew on its experience as a hotel designer to inject colour and interest into the spaces, whilst maintaining functionality and operational utilities.

    Working with Tektura products enabled Kingston Shaw to deliver its vision through the wallcoverings, creating a woodland feel to the entrance using the Heritage Wood and a regal feel to the dining area using the Old Masters George V. Kingston Shaw was impressed with the assistance that it received from both the technical and logistics departments at Tektura, making specification and delivery professional.
