As the first lockdown was lifted in the summer of 2020, we wasted no time diving straight back into our work and began our redevelopment at Gordon Terrace. The lockdown had wiped out 4 of our 12 week renovation window, so with only 8 weeks to fully rip out and renovate 4 flats, we knew had a very busy 2 months ahead. Thankfully this project required no structural changes and for just 1 stud wall to be put up, so in regards to major buildings works there was none. After taking up the old flooring we utilized the void under the house and upstairs floorboards to hide all the new pipes and wires, as we fully upgraded and renewed the electrics and plumbing throughout the property to handle the demand of all the new mod cons and of course our signature feature lighting too. We replaced all 4 kitchens and bathrooms, finishing them to a luxury standard and by white washing all internal walls, we managed to create a very fresh and airy feel which worked wanders on house. It took some very early starts and very late finishes too but thanks to a great team of trusted contractors we still managed to finish this project bang on time and dubbed it "Omega Apartments".

This project required the full works, every inch of it needed redecorating, all the services needed relocating, the loft needed converting, the boiler needed replacing along with all the pipes and rads and finally a full rewire was required as well to meet todays building regulations, as this property hadn’t been touched in decades. The biggest job on this project was no doubt the loft conversion, but we knew the additional space and light the dormer could give would make our efforts worth it and we were not wrong. This addition to the property created a very special and generously sized communal space, totally open plan, flooded with natural light, thanks to windows on 3 of the 4 walls up there, offering nearly panoramic views of the city. We had to make sure the rest of the property matched up to the spectacular shared space, so we really raised the bar in the bathroom too by sourcing some luxury XL wall tiles, creating a bespoke illuminated floating shelf and using a plaster-in LED profile, in which all 3 of those things was a "first" for us, but once again the finished article was simply stunning. The stylish design had to of course continue into the bedrooms too, as did all the mod cons one could expect along with our signature feature lighting too.

Emmanuel House - 14 Self Contained Studios

Completed August 2016

This is arguably our biggest re-development to date, we started of with a tired building inside and out, containing a number of dated flats, and after we worked our magic, it finished with 14 ultra-modern and high spec self-contained studios. In the process of restoring and repurposing this building, we proved to ourselves just what we could achieve. By the time we got half way through this project, we were fitting full kitchens and bathrooms with our eyes closed! We worked closely with our architect on this project to ensure as many of the internal walls where kept as they were, minimizing any extra costs or work, and giving us a welcomed challenge of making the most of the spaces as they were upon purchase. A good example of this can be seen in the images here, where although some spaces where a bit tight and unusual in their shape, we still managed to create fully functional Studios, that feel well designed both visually and ergonomically.

This was a really exciting Development for us, as we started with a building that had been commercially fitted for a Solicitors, so we knew we had to get the re-design just right to make it feel like a purpose-built plot. Through our expertise and knowledge of the Student sector, we knew exactly how to best utilize the space. We manged to create 14 generously sized bedrooms, spread across 6 stylish flats, each with their own modern kitchen & bathrooms. Here you can see some before and after photos, where we had fully gutted the property, and just started putting up the new partition walls. The after photos show the stunning finished product, the bathrooms all feature modern 2 tone tiles and huge double showers, the kitchens all have chic units and integrated cookers. The feedback we’ve always received from our tenants as well is that the small details make the biggest difference, so we always find a way to include the luxury fixture and fittings within our clients budgets, to give it that real high end feel!

Here at Student Choice we always try to stay a step ahead of the game, and as the Student Accommodation markets seems to be now be leaning towards smaller apartments instead of large house shares, we’ve taken this Terraced property on as our latest project. We recently had plans signed off for a 2 & 4 bed apartment, the ground floor will be home to the 2 bed, while the 1st floor & with the help of a loft conversion, those floors will home the 4 bed. Lofts conversions have some huge benefits, not only do they open up another bulk of space within your property, they also create a type of space you can only really create in a loft, an "attic" room, with sloped ceilings and huge amounts of light when done correctly. They’re arguably our most popular room type, so we’re now well trained in creating them wherever possible. Both of these apartments have been finished to an extremely high spec throughout, whilst also keeping our consistently stylish décor at the forefront of the design. Take a look at the difference!

Here, you’re looking at "Bedford Apartments", home to 3 stunning flats, that we built from the ground up. The plot itself was previously used as a car park, but Student Choice could see all the extra potential the space had to offer, and we were keen to build something totally from scratch ourselves, from laying the very first brick right to screwing in the last light bulb. We started the development April 2017, and with the help from our trusted workforce, it was finished just 4 months later. It stands 3 stories high, and houses a number of bright & spacious rooms, some with ensuites and even walk in wardrobes, with every square foot finished to a very high standard. With our extensive experience in interior design, the apartments sold themselves and have been fully let ever since completion, we’ll show you some of them on our next Development release!
