About Client

Haringey Sixth Form College is a mixed sixth form school based in the Tottenham area of the London Borough of Haringey. The college is dedicated to helping students gain the skills and qualifications they need to progress to university or operate in the workplace.

Client Brief

After refurbishing their learning centre and several classrooms, Haringey College contacted us again to update the washrooms that hadn’t been looked at since the college first opened.

There was some damage that needed repairing that had been caused over the years, as well as the need to brighten the areas with better lighting.

The interior design of the washrooms also had to include their new school branding with the colours grey and orange, matching the previous projects we had completed too.

Haringey also wanted to introduce Gender Neutral toilets with full privacy to each individual cubicle but keeping the opening to the washroom area accessible for teachers to be able to monitor, should any issues occur.

Our Solution

To include the school’s branded colours in the washrooms, our designer, Scott, wanted to bring the flooring to life with a patterned orange and grey plank tile.

Scott also added randomly placed orange metro tiles amongst the grey metro tiles on the wall of the hand dryers and above the vanity units that stopped much lower than their high 4m ceiling height.

Replacing their previous burgundy and yellow painted walls, large light grey marble effect wall tiles were installed to brighten the rooms. In contrast, a darker wood colouring was used for the cubicle systems designs to hide any marks and therefore be more durable.

The Result

The end result has been well received by the staff at Haringey with the project finishing on time and within their budget.

The transformation of the school’s washrooms has been a mind-blowing comparison with the quality of the works above the expected standard – not an unusual result from Rap Interiors.

Gender Neutral Washrooms

This was a specification introduced by Haringey after the initial design which changed some features to suit this request.

By the school having gender neutral toilets, the height of the cubicles had to change to a full-height system to ensure complete visual privacy.

The entrance of the washrooms was kept open without a door for the area to feel more accessible to everyone and so the purpose of the gender neutral toilet was not abused.

School Colours

The school had gone under some recent rebranding which they were still updating throughout their interior design.

Previously using burgundy and yellow, they had changed to orange and grey which were colours we were already used to working within their classrooms.

Splashing the orange in amongst the grey metro tiles and flooring kept the design fun, and bright without overpowering the use of colour so it was still sophisticated for the sixth form students.
