Set across 16 floors and 2 buildings, Collegiate’s Bagot Street site is the ideal accommodation and location for students studying at both Aston University and Birmingham City, as well as it being only a short journey from the University of Birmingham.
Jasper Sanders & Partners were commissioned to oversee the interior design of the Bagot Street student accommodation, where this architecture and interior design studio took a bold and innovative approach to ensuring spaces and places achieved their maximum potential for those who use and own them. The resultant conclusion was an intelligent design tailored specifically to meet the needs of the client, with a design which challenges the status quo and promotes motivation and inspiration. They understood the crucial role lighting plays in the design of any space, and on more than one occasion, the studio has asked for Ansell Lighting products to be included in projects that they oversee. Bagot Street is the latest JS&P project to feature Ansell’s LED lighting portfolio of products.
A selected fitting for this application was the Unity 0 Surface LED Mains, Track mounted non-Dimmable compact LED spotlight, complete with an integral LED Driver, fitted to the Mains Voltage Single Circuit Track system, with its extensive range of accessories and availability in black or white options, which is ideally suited for this residential project, as well as other hospitality and retail applications.
