Sir John of Gaunt School

Sir John of Gaunt School commissioned Pinnacle for the design and renovation of their Sixth Form Common Room. We were given a blank canvas of an architecturally attractive room with high ceilings and large windows with a light, airy ambience.

The Brief

The main obstacle we had to overcome during this project was the design process. The design for the Sixth Form Common Room was out for tender and we were awarded the project, but our Design and Sales teams were in high demand in the busy run up to the summer.  We came up with an innovative solution and using desktop sharing and conference calls, our Design team designed the room live with the key stakeholders at the school looking on from their end! The clients then put forward their ideas and once the layout was finalised, the particular products and colours were chosen to complete the design for the area.

A long configuration of dining tables were placed along the centre of the room with chairs both sides for both dining and individual or group work. We also installed a run of Banquette seating along one wall with a dark wood finish and contrasting soft grey and green upholstery. These were paired with white tables, again for either dining or studying.

What we did

We installed a length of IT benching along one wall with high back stools which matched the chairs in the centre of the room. This provides an alternative area for studying, especially if students need to carry out research on the computer.

At one end of the room we supplied and installed modular easy seating upholstered in the same material and colours as the Banquette range. This creates a relaxation area for the students for break times and also casual work.  Finally, we also installed a pigeon hole unit for students to store their belongings during lessons.

The school was very happy with their renovated common room and we were proud of ourselves for fitting out an area we had never seen prior to winning the order!
