Brass Founders, Student Accommodation in Sheffield

Kingston Shaw Interior Design were delighted to complete the design of the communal spaces of a new-build student project in Sheffield. 

Brass Founders offers students a luxury space that is meant to feel like a home from home. The communal spaces include a games room, gym, communal eating area, social hub, work spaces and a cinema room.  BCFA member Tektura wallcoverings have been used throughout these common areas.Ink BLot Tektura wallcovering Kingston Shaw Brass FOunders webThe brief given to the designers was to create a functional yet inviting interior that was inspiring and full of character. Tektura Wallcovering murals were the perfect fit for this. A woodland mural has been selected, made in custom colours. An ink blot design has also been chosen which gives a interesting visual that reminds us a little of a Rorschach test – very cool! Another mural chosen was one from the Old Masters collection. They picture works of art from the 18th and 19th century. brass_founders-420 - M webKingston Shaw said;

“Designing this wonderful space was an opportunity to re imagine our own student accommodation desires and provide a unique space for today’s scholars to live, work and study in”

Tektura’s ability to offer bespoke colourways meant that Kingston Shaw could match their chosen murals with the furniture and flooring. Kingston Shaw Tektura wallcoverings Brass Founders 1 webContact Tektura Wallcoverings
