St Mary’s School Ascot is a leading Roman Catholic Boarding School for girls aged between 11 and 18. They pride themselves on creating a warm and homely atmosphere for all of their girls. And, when our team were called upon recently to provide our Contemporary Range of dormitory furniture for their year 11’s – it was vital this atmosphere was carried through. It is fair to say that when this project was complete, the dormitories looked sleek, modern and stylish.
Our standard Stover Bed was used for this particular project. Though, we adapted the design so it fitted in with the Contemporary Range. This bed provided every girl with two drawers and a lift up bed panel for extra storage. The handles used on the drawers were metal bow handles which would give the girls easy access to their necessities. The headboard was matched to the dark oak colour and made from Melamine faced boards which are heat, water and scratch resistant. Making them perfect for for educational environments.
Sitting alongside each bed was a Contemporary Bedside Cabinet, though the school had opted for a lighter coloured tone. It is always a good idea to have a bedside cabinet in a dormitory, as this allows for a little extra storage space and a suitable surface for bedside essentials. Such as books, reading glasses and a night lamp. Storage is easy to access as we used easy glide runners on the drawer and hideaway hinges on the door – this ensures the girls are able to safely access their belongings with ease.
Our Contemporary Desk was fully fitted to the wall and the floor, using a single metal rail. The desk carcass and working surface were manufactured using Melamine faced boards, which provides a suitable heat, water and scratch resistant place for the students to work. The surface of this desk provided ample space to work using the traditional pen and paper or a laptop.
There were also some bespoke elements to this project. The fitted storage bench was installed by the windows. With soft brown upholstery to match the design of the room, the liftable lid provided the students with extra storage space and additional seating. This bench was expertly crafted to be the perfect space for students to sit and unwind with a good book as they watch the world go by.
