Pipers Corner School is an independent day school based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. partnered with Spectrum Workplace to redesign and refurbish the 6th form common room and study area. The brief was based around enhancing student creativity and communication through a mix furniture styles and carefully selected colours.
This vibrant breakout space really has the ‘wow’ factor. The features include colour-changing LED lighting, a giant hammock, astro-turf flooring, deck-chairs, soft seating with built-in phone chargers and power, a pool table, and more! Believe it or not this colourful breakout area was actually for a private school for their 6th Form common room and study area.
The school had a problem in that students were leaving early rather than moving up into the 6th form due to the tired and dull environment that they were allocated. As a commercial enterprise this represented a significant revenue loss so the new, vibrant and colourful breakout space was key in reversing this trend.
The space was split into three areas – a soft seating area for informal discussions and relaxation, a cafe style area for eating and meetings and also a quiet study area. The design was developed after numerous consultations with the client and included input from the students themselves.
