After winning Knightsbridge’s Design Competition in 2014 Links began installation of the 5 common rooms awarded to us this summer. The brief was to create interiors that students are wowed by and a home for students in a building with an identity, not just another institutional environment.
Our Senior Design Manager, Frances talks about the process used to create the space ‘Each scheme has been designed according to its location which is reflected in our choice of materials, colour scheme and artwork. All of the social spaces have their own identity and create a home from home for the students. The designs incorporate different zones for students to relax, study and enjoy the spaces whilst creating a hub to meet up with other residents and feel part of the community.’.
Ablett House is an outstanding example of how Links incorporate contemporary, functional design with the local history of the site location - design that supports quality is a natural part of Links brand identity and soul.
Client feedback is hugely important to Links, and this year it has been extremely positive - ‘they look fantastic – exactly the kind of impact and uplift in specification that we envisaged when we first engaged with you last year’.
