In order to create a more sociable area for the students, our school interior designers introduced two types of desking: one with power and data, and another without. The desks with power and data offer a space to do IT work, while the blank desks encourage students to sit down and socialise without the distraction of technology.
To create a more vibrant area which reflected the college’s identity, our designers made intelligent colour choices. For example, the college’s yellow and blue colour scheme is reflected in the carpet design, desk screens and wall paint. The yellow element of the carpet also serves to highlight the desk areas and add contrast to the overall aesthetic.
Additionally, we removed two walls from the original IT suite to make the space open plan and, in turn, more communication-friendly. For practicality, one section of wall was left up and painted in order to create a student walkway. The walkway also works as a convenient backdrop for the teacher’s whiteboard and projection equipment.
