Bangor University won best student accommodation 2016 at the WhatUni awards for their accommodation portfolio.  The University Halls department wanted to further improve their student lounge at the newly opened St Mary’s Village.  The brief was a cosy, luxurious and welcoming look, that their students could relax in whether they were studying, or just meeting up with friends to enjoy a coffee.

“Space Like This took our brief, ideas and concept and turned it into a spectacular space which has been highly praised by our residents of St Mary’s, visitors and staff alike. Working with Space Like This has been a pleasure due to their vision and professionalism.”

Deirdre McIntyre, Residential Life Manager, Bangor University

“This was such a pleasure to work on as students are a very discerning and stylish crowd. We went for a look inspired by a private gentleman’s club which had a soft industrial feel and referenced the buildings history as a library and learning area with a modern take.”
