IQ Edinburgh

iQ Student Accommodation specialise in creating safe, welcoming homes across their 60+ student residences in the UK.

For their site at Elliott House, near Edinburgh city centre, our Student Team worked to a tight two-week turnaround to provide a full interior design and spatial planning service for this refurbishment project. The brief was to emphasise the architecture of the building, and so the design for the common spaces combined comfort with grandeur. For the bedrooms the approach was more balanced and gentle, to ensure students felt a sense of sanctuary. David Phillips provided four different furnishing schemes for the apartments, including a Classic and three inspired by the European cities Berlin, Milan and Oslo. As well as furnishing 673 apartments, David Phillips designed four showrooms to appeal to different resident personas and demographics.
