The atrium of the ILS1 building at Swansea University was an unused dead space, our brief was to transform the area to make it more productive and usable to staff and students. As the atrium is at the heart of a busy building with people continuously passing, we wanted to put in something interesting and inviting. The footprint of the area is small and so we chose the Hive unit allowing users to collaborate, concentrate, socialise and communicate effectively. We chose a 2 tier unit for privacy with fabric choices to coincide with existing walkways. Two red Gloss chairs finish the space off delivering a professional feel.
