University of Glasgow - Sir Alexander Stone Building
Alpha designed and supplied furniture for the 5th and 6th (mezzanine) floors of the Sir Alexander Stone Building at The University of Glasgow. The space is occupied by Post-Graduate students who spend a substantial amount of time studying here, therefore the aim was to create an eye-catching and welcoming environment for the students.
Within the space is a variety of hot-desking and break-out areas, as well as allocated student desks. A new tea-prep area was developed, along with bold, brightly coloured lockers. Bespoke lighting was manufactured in order to take advantage of the high ceilings and create a statement within the space. A secondary statement piece is the large moss feature that stretches along the left wall.
A vibrant palette of colours combined with a choice of pastel feature walls and a design-led carpet layout ensured this area would be the showpiece space on campus.
