Why wasn’t student accommodation this good back in my day?
We had great fun with our client deciding on the neon sign and statement lighting for this project and we were over the moon with the finished product. We also got to see the reactions of the tenants first hand as we were packing up following the dressing and photographs. They know they’re going to have a ball living in this place!
Anyhow, besides the show stopping communal area each room with its own en-suite had been finished to a high standard with good quality furniture – real comfort to retreat to away from the buzz of the communal area.
On this particular project we helped our client in the following services –
- Sourcing of neon light,
- Assistance with selection of statement lighting,
- Artwork pack for communal areas, bedrooms and en-suites,
- Large notice boards for each room to prevent damage to walls,
- Dressing and professional photography of the six bedrooms.
When planning and preparing for this project we consulted with the client to establish if they had any preferences or visions they wanted included – sometimes clients do and sometimes they don’t. However, we always understand that some of our clients have real involvement in their projects and have a vision they wish to achieve. In this case our client wanted a Banksy inspired twist so we did this with the artwork whilst making sure we didn’t offend or become too political! Not always the easiest with Banksy! However I think we managed to strike the right balance.
With the dressing we wanted to brighten the neutral tones adding a ‘pop’ whilst having a cohesive theme throughout the property. We always have in mind that are providing standout stock photographs for years to come so we make sure we are different (and better) to the local competition. With the dressing we always make sure add items of interest for those lifestyle shots. These help people begin to imagine themselves living in the property whilst viewing the listing on-line.
Here are a selection of the photographs from the communal area and some of the rooms.
