Boarding Houses

School Boarding House Design

When it comes to boarding houses, parents and students are very discerning. Boarding houses are becoming an important part of the decision process when selecting a school. School boarding house design is a delicate balance between home and school, and it’s important to ensure your students feel safe, happy and welcome.

School boarding houses should be home from home, yet durable enough to withstand extensive daily use. Our school boarding house design service offers you the experience of specialist school environment design, yet we apply creative touches to help ensure your student’s boarding experience is the best it can be.

Boarding House Interior Design

Our experienced team of school designers will take your vision and convert it into a comprehensive design scheme. Working from 2D space plans and 3D visualisations, along with mood boards and finishes samples, we’ll ensure you are totally happy with the design concepts before we proceed to build. We’re always keen to involve user groups of students and staff in our design strategy to help you achieve the best long-term result.

Space Efficiency and Boarding House Layout Planning

Our creative design team will work with you to maximise the occupancy of your boarding houses. Maybe you’re looking to increase the number of boarders, or simply put an end to cricket in the dormitories. Either way, we’ll work closely with you to develop a stunning and practical boarding house design scheme. Our in-house CAD artists and visualisers will draw plans and 3D visualisations to help you understand how your new boarding house design is likely to look and function.

Boarding House Refurbishment

Once you’ve signed off the design, our approved team of subcontractors will bring your new boarding house to life. We’ll ensure the boarding house refurbishment project is completed on time and within budget, installing only the best quality furniture, and helping you ensure the finishing touches are in place ready for your students to enjoy.

Student Washrooms and Showers

We look at more than just the bedrooms in your boarding house. We have experience in redesigning and refurbishing washrooms and shower rooms too. We’ll help ensure student privacy is maximised, as well as creating a practical and welcoming environment.

Social Spaces and Kitchens

The social spaces within your boarding house are one of the most important aspects of boarding life. It’s here your students should feel happy, relaxed and secure. From soft seating, to lockable personal storage, we’ll help you enhance the overall boarding experience through a well-designed environment.

Boarding Houses Within Listed Buildings

We design boarding environments in listed buildings, as well as newer boarding houses. We work hard to enhance the architecture of the building, as well as maximising comfort and space efficiency. From the bedrooms and sleeping dorms, to social spaces and washrooms, our design team are able to help you create a stunning boarding house interior design scheme.


We understand that prospective parents are looking for welcoming boarding environments, so we’ll help you overcome the challenges often associated with older buildings. We’re fond of working with high ceilings, old windows and even antiquated plumbing systems, and we’ll help you convert your boarding houses into welcoming and attractive places.
