Project: Reading

Client: Q Apartments

Designed by Jessica McElroy / Emma Matthews

Full furniture packs for 19 serviced apartments – a mix of 1 and 2-bedrooms.


Our client had taken over a brand new conversion (office to residential) . This gave us access to the site during construction. When on site the units were smaller than instructed which led to us reducing the furniture pack and also installing smaller beds.

Our design team had put together 3 different designs for the client and 3 different price points. The client decided that given the location in the city centre these units deserved the highest level “Gold” as they would be occupying a higher price point.

Problems to overcome:

As with all conversions from office to residential access is always a problem. First of all the city centre location only allowed us to unload at certain times with all vehicles needing to be removed by a certain time in the morning. The second access issue was the entrances and corridors themselves. We had custom-made sofa beds made to be easily dismantled to make install easier and reassembled post-installation.
