Swanston House, Belfast

Student Roost

A unique student development in Belfast standing proud as a heritage Victorian building that was once threatened by demolition but has now been brought back to shine in all its glory as premium student accommodation. Working with Student Roost, the vision was simple – authentic, industrial design that reflected the heritage of the building, balanced with contemporary vibrant colours alongside textures of wood, concrete and metal.


Catherine Currie, Head of Design at Student-Furniture

“In establishing a design concept, I felt it was important to bring a playful character elements to the scheme, through bold wall colours, bright upholstery, worn rustic oaks, steel metal work and antique leathers. Quirky seating feels youthful and inspiring, whilst darker touches found in the caged metal bookcases and premium touches found within the feature lighting make the space feel grown up and classic.”
