Fully refurbished sixth form area for a Haberdashers’ School

Reason for the Project:

To refurbish the Sixth Form area, providing different areas for both relaxation and study. The client requested that we create a modern and vibrant feel with distinct areas for both collaborative and social study. This is alongside a quiet area for students to fully focus on revising and homework.

Aim of the Project:

To design a functional yet attractive Sixth Form which suits the needs of all Students with a modern design and comfortable working areas.
The furniture needed to be robust and hardwearing but also stylish.

The project aimed to create a versatile space for sixth-form students, with a combination of learning, socializing and studying areas. The space would accommodate up to 150 students at a time and support their transition to higher education. The design solution involved extending the existing rooftop rooms around the plant  rooms that could not be removed.

Team Comments on the project:

We worked with the School Head and the Business Manager to select the best products and finishes. Once their preferred choices were selected our Design Team put together 3D renders to enable the school to see the proposed final result and make any necessary tweaks.

We designed the soft seating area to maximize the view out of the large windows and be an ultimate place to relax.

The fabrics for the furniture were chosen to match the colour scheme for each designated area. Another thing we had to bear in mind, was which fabrics best suited the purpose of the furniture for a school environment.

The Sixth Form area now looks rejuvenated, classy and fully functional for lots of students. We are really happy with the choice of colours, the entire Sixth Form area has an understated yet sophisticated feel.
