Summer Fields School Characterful Dining Hall

A practical and durable design with wow factor.

Brief

Summer Fields School involved us in the rejuvenation of their characterful dining hall. The existing décor and interior were very tired and needed new life breathing into it. The interior design needed to be sympathetic with the era of the building, making the most of the existing architectural features.

A thorough refurbishment was required to create an enjoyable space for the students and create a real wow factor for visitors. The furniture needed to be practical, durable and work in harmony with the character of the space.

Challenge

The new dining hall needed to be practical and durable, as well as a space where the pupils wanted to come. The school also wanted additional multifunctionality to enable the space to be used for parent’s events too.

Solution

We worked closely with the school to create a suitable range of furniture. This needed to be aesthetically suitable, as well as fit for purpose. The final solution was a range of solid oak furniture, that will stand the test of time and reflects the quality and attention to detail that the school is known for.

We also manufactured a bespoke oak table and bench set for the prep school students. This furniture is a scaled down version of the main tables in the dining hall and allows the prep school children to eat comfortably in the same area as the older pupils.

The project also included upgrades to lighting, flooring, panelling and a complete redecoration of the room.
