The Armitage Rooms
Queens College

Cambridge 

Layrd Design worked along Regent Construction (Cambridge) to design and fit out The Armitage Rooms at the historic Queens College, Cambridge during the summer of 2021.

The brief was to transform the existing dated and disjoined space into a modern, inspiring and functional interior for students to work both individually and as groups. This meant we had to make sure the space was flexible and could be used for various different types of working and events.

We opened up the previously sectioned off rooms to create an open plan working area, replacing the suspended ceiling tiles with acoustic fins and installed bespoke bookcases around the perimeter of the room to create a modern setting yet still in keeping with the architecture and history of the room.

 

In addition to the interior design, Layrd also specified and supplied all of the furniture for the space. This includes the Boss Design folding tables, ergonomic Senator task chairs, individual study booths and acoustic working seats.

 

We worked closely with Tarkett Flooring to ensure we installed a sustainable and hardwearing floor throughout the scheme, Airmaster carpet tiles are located in the working areas with a contrasting walkway created using high quality timber effect LVT from the entrance through to the tea point.
