This unique student residence in London has been designed to resemble a members-only club rather than a dull student housing block. Created by Tigg Coll Architects, the innovative housing space features industrial-inspired elements fused with creativity-boosting materials that lends itself to a homey-feeling environment.

Now rebranded as Nido Spatalfields, the student residence has been given new life thanks to the use of charismatic reclaimed materials that add a personality to the building. The space has been designed to encourage interaction between residents, with plenty of communal seating and casual social space.

This ultramodern approach to designing student housing is innovative in its emphasis on inspiring creativity, encouraging social interaction and increasing livability. By investing in the quality of life of students, post-secondary institutions are likely to increase student engagement and well-being.
