CityBlock, Berkshire House, Reading is a new purpose-built development of 145 state-of-the-art en-suite student flats and apartments in a great central location in the heart of the city of Reading. CityBlock is an award-winning developer of stylish, high-quality, secure accommodation in Durham, Lancaster and Reading, with 15 years' experience in the student accommodation sector.
Andy Thornton Ltd was invited by designers Whittam Cox Architects to pitch for the furnishings package for the stunning basement communal areas and was successful in securing an order for much of the furniture, for both the dining and lounge facilities. The result is the ultimate student living experience, with luxuriously furnished communal areas providing an excellent standard of living.
In the well-appointed communal kitchens and food preparation areas, we supplied a mix of large bespoke dining tables and high dining tables in steel frames with hardwood tops and 100 mm downstands.
Coupling CityBlock Reading’s perfect location, close to The University’s two main campuses on the doorstep of the city’s retail and nightlife hubs, with its stunning facilities and decor, it is no surprise that this student accommodation is so popular. Indeed, it is all but sold out for the next academic year.
