Interior Design & Refurbishment
Comfortable, happy and inspirational places to live, work and grow
When it comes to your boarding houses, parents and students are discerning.
Boarding houses are an important part of the decision making process when selecting a school and the chances are that parents and students will visit a number of boarding schools to really get a ‘feel’ as to whether their sons and daughters would be comfortable, happy and inspired whilst living there.
School boarding house design is a delicate balance between home and school. It is important to ensure your students feel safe and welcome.
Our designs for your boarding house will add value in an elegant yet mature style and make your boarding house an attractive proposition for students of any age.
