Talybont Social Club - Cardiff University


Sector: Education

What we did: New Bar/Coffee Bar, Restaurant and Social Learning Space

The Social Centre forms part of the Talybont South student campus, which provides residential accommodation for approximately 3000 students, and is located two miles from Cardiff’s bustling city centre. The dated facility which incorporated a bar, kitchen, dining area, dance floor and pool tables was very under-utilised, the décor was ‘tired’ and the general ambience was uninviting to say the very least.

In an attempt to inject new life into what was once a vibrant hub of student activity, we completely rejuvenated the space; stripping out the old bars, fitted furniture and finishes, sanded and lightened the existing hardwood floors; completely redecorated the area; renewed the bar counters, lighting, flooring and furniture, and created a dedicated ‘learning zone’ for the students with work stations, task seating and a printer station. In short, a facility in which students choose to be and where studying and socialising go hand in hand.
