The Lace Market, Nottingham - a stunning student experience by David Phillips Student

Located in the exclusive heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, The Lace Market is known throughout Nottingham as the coolest district for socialising, dining, and shopping. The Lace Market provides chic, classic 19th Century industrial architecture complemented with cutting edge 21st Century businesses just minutes away from Nottingham’s City Centre.

The Lace Market Studios comprises 113 beautifully designed bedrooms and kitchens - all furnished with the David Phillips Student furniture collection, creating the perfect living and study environment. 

David Phillips Student became partners on this project with Bowmer and Kirkland back in January this year to design, supply and install all fitted and loose furniture, including appliances. Storage in any studio is crucial and this project was no exception. Working closely with architects Church Lukas, we were able to create creative storage solutions to maximise space -installing recessed shelving above the desk will provide students with great storage which doesnt impinge on space.

As part of our integrated design services, David Phillips installed a marketing show apartment for developer Omni which is marketed by the team at Victoria Hall.

Our experienced Projects team - headed up by Dan Brownsword, start on-site next week with a 12 week installation programme, completing before the 2016 student in-take in September.
