Spring Mews is a mixed use development incorporating a 378 bedroom student accommodation, 93 bed suite hotel, office and new public realm re-vitalising an old industrial site in the Vauxhall Nine Elms Opportunities Area.
The Manser Practice were initially employed by CLS Holdings to design the interiors and then work on the clearance of a set of complex pre-commencement planning conditions to enable works to start. Our success in re-imagining the design led to us being appointed to take over the entire scheme in a combined architecture and interiors role.
We translated our experience in hotel design to create interior bedroom layouts for both the student accommodation and hotel that made cost effective use of space and materials.
Bedrooms on each floor of the student accommodation are arranged in a series of clusters and studios, a matrix which was part of the client’s requirements and integral to the successful letting of the rooms by the operator.
The student accommodation was opened ready for the University intake in September 2014 and the suite hotel was opened in January 2015.
