Completion of 'Chapter Old Street' student accommodation project!

We have been busy down at Chapter Old Street and recently completed the interior fit-out for their new entrance space, with integrated study areas for students. We are looking forward to finally seeing this space being use soon!

We wanted the space to feel thematically relevant to its immediate context and our research led us to the local siting of Shakespeare’s theatre company (on Curtain Road) and its first permanent home in 1597 which saw early performances of some of Shakespeare’s most Icon plays such as Romeo & Juliet and Henry IV parts I & II. This inspiration led to an exploration of theatre design through the ages, focusing on the Art Deco inspired theatre foyers of the 1920’s though to the glamour of 1950’s cinema and theatre.
