Sixth form common room.

The older students at Sherrardswood School now have their own smart space to study and hang out away from the lower school.

We stripped out the old dated and unloved sixth form common room and created a modern open-plan space. There’s cafe-style and soft seating breakout areas, a part-glazed meeting room and networked study area.

The design process introduced a mix of Herman Miller furniture, architectural energy-saving lighting, and wall and floor surfaces in fresh natural colours and finishes.

The project was completed within a tight timescale over the summer break without disrupting study time.
