One of the main aspects of the common room is the large storage feature wall, constructed from 18mm MFC, in front of the sofa area. This is a bespoke wall for the students to store their bags, textbooks or other items in during lessons or overnight. It helps to keep the common room tidy and free of clutter and is easily accessible.
The common room was divided into several areas, each with their own intended use. Directly in front of you when you walk into the common room are 2 Feast benches with suede style Orbit low stools on one side and a wooden bench on the other. These are intended for students to use while eating as the Feast benches can be easily wiped with a damp cloth to clean them in the event of a spillage and feature a robust construction with impact-resistant edges. To the left of the Feast benches are 4 three seater sofas, all facing toward the storage feature wall. This area is for the students to relax in during breaks, and there’s even a projector and electronically controlled screen that they can use!
