The EdgeA triple threat space at the University of Sheffield
The Edge, at the University of Sheffield is a study, social and dining space. With many students utilising the area, the furniture became dated and not did not meet the modern functionality requirements of the university’s students, residents and guests.
The client envisioned a multi-purpose versatile space for use by students during term time as well as conference guests outside the academic year. The university required our design expertise for efficient space planning to create a vibrant and functional area to suit various residents and visitors.
We completed a full refurbishment of the area to breathe a new lease of life into this important communal area. Throughout the entire project we consulted with the client on their needs and presented concepts using visuals, floorplans and 3D models to better showcase how furniture would sit within the space. The brief involved provision of furniture which was both stylish and robust to align with the university’s overall look and feel whilst withstanding the use of many students and guests in the future.
Our carefully selected wooden dining tables and accompanying ribbed leather dining chairs achieved the desired ‘Great Hall’ look whilst our large bookcases and accessories divided up spaces well and gave the room real personality and character.
