A new Student Centre for the University of Sussex is now on site, and due for completion early next year. The interiors will be in keeping with the unique spirit of Brighton, with strong design aesthetics which reflect the city’s culture and reputation.
The Student Centre is designed to be a welcoming and inclusive space, with a strong focus on wellbeing and sustainable materials. ADP has specified finishes with excellent eco credentials, using upcycled and vintage furniture in key areas.
The Student Centre will be the primary location for students accessing services face to face, providing the main access point for information and advice. Situated at the heart of the student residential area, it will provide social and working space for students across the campus.
Our design and layout for the Student Centre envisages a space which will invite curiosity, and promote innovative thinking. Students and staff will have access to state-of-the-art, integrated IT, and the building as a whole reflects the University of Sussex brand: confident, progressive and unafraid to stand out.
Dianna Fletcher, project director, said: “The new student centre has been designed to be a welcoming, fully inclusive space, with natural materials and lots of interest to support wellbeing. We are looking forward to the completion of the project, and seeing how students and staff use the flexible main space – and how they engage with our bespoke display wall!”
