De Montfort University Campus Centre

The Project

As part of the ongoing refurbishment of the wider De Montfort University campus; their Campus Centre has recently undergone a £3 million refurbishment programme to refresh the space and make it more welcoming for students and visitors alike.

The Campus Centre houses the Student Union HQ, as well as the DSU Officer Team. The refusbishment opened up the building, creating a light, bright and open space which would allow for a better flow of communication between the Officer Team and the students, making the DSU more visible and easy to contact.

Our Solution

De Montfort University envisaged a bright, light, and contemporary aesthetic for the Campus Centre; and the furniture choices had to enhance this. We installed desks, task chairs and visitor seating throughout the DSU offices. All metalwork was finished in our RAW effect: a clear gloss lacquer which exposes the raw steel frames, giving the building an edgy and insustrial feel. Within the student zones, we installed a number of Spark-Hi booths, ideal for students to relax or collaborate on projects. The combination of grey and yellow fabric in contrasting textures enhances the tactility of the booths, encouraging their use.
