An iconic Grade-II listed building provides contemporary communal living spaces for students in the heart of historic Lancaster.

THE LATEST IN STUDENT ACCOMMODATION

The latest student accommodation from specialists CityBlock is Gillows, the former Waring & Gillows furniture factory, that now provides 96 beds in the heart of Lancaster. This iconic Grade ll-listed building has been refurbished to create a truly unique living experience, the perfect home for students of Lancaster and Cumbria Universities.

CONTEMPORARY COMMUNAL LIVING SPACES

The large contemporary communal living spaces feature fully fitted and equipped kitchens and extensive social spaces with TVs, pool table and private dining rooms. Andy Thornton supplied contract furniture and lighting throughout these common group areas.

For the large Common Room, Andy Thornton supplied leather upholstered sofas and lounge chairs together with a bespoke L-shaped leather Chesterfield by the pool table. We also supplied our popular School bar stools, as well as the large industrial-style black hanging pendants.

CONTRACT-QUALITY CHAIRS

In the quieter study area, we supplied 10 School side chairs in red, which sit along the wall-mounted workstation. In front of the bookcase, Andy Thornton supplied their Kensington lounge chairs and matching tubes around the coffee tables, both upholstered in burgundy-coloured leather.

PRIVATE DINING AREA

Finally, in the Private Dining area, our Repton side chairs and armchairs have been used around the large refectory table, upholstered in a hard-wearing spearmint-coloured faux leather. And above the table and in the food prep areas, Andy Thornton supplied industrial-style light pendants in copper frames with Holophane-style glass shades.
