We solved this issue by raising only the strictly necessary walls and defining all the others just with the use of loose and bespoke furniture, and by playing with colours, flooring, booths, banquet seatings, freestanding room dividers, plants, big pendant lights, feature walls, and shapes. This allowed us to create a versatile space that could include a number of different functions, which is crucial for modern student accommodations. Through careful review and organisation, in the communal areas, we also obtained a great balance of open and more private spaces, to allow for both group and private study or activities.
The Rock Project was a really unique one. While the tower part was a new building, we also had an existing one to refurbish that was previously a Hospital. It is also a large one. The new building counts 463 bedrooms of 19 different types, from 19 to 24 sqm, and a total of 804 sqm of communal areas. The existing one instead has other 219 studio, with 48 different types varying from 19 to almost 50 sqm, and 110 sqm of communal areas including entrance, reception, lounge, and laundry. The main challenge for such a large space was to re-define the new and existing communal areas in order to make them as functional as possible for a wide range of activities.
