The Dezeen award-winning YOUTH Studio tell us all about the interior design they’ve crafted for our Kampus apartments:
“We won Kampus shortly after founding the studio (6 months after, to be exact). It meant so much to us as a young design studio, not only because we had beaten off some pretty impressive competition, but more because it represented the spirit and ambition behind Kampus.
The brief was a challenging one — to create individuality and distinctive character within each building. Our response was to come up with a timeless style for the apartments, that could act as the backdrop on which layers of character, colour and texture could be applied, depending on the personality of each building. So, North Block is peaceful, easy-going and warm with rich tones (it’s the one at the party pouring the drinks). South Block is rebellious and atmospheric, daring to do what no-one else will. Then there’s the Stack. It’s timeless, mature and effortlessly cool, listening to records and drinking a smooth red on a Friday night.
Our vision from the start was about creating beautifully considered environments. From the main entrance to the moment you sit on your sofa, we wanted to create something unique to Manchester, by collaborating with the brands and design studios that inspire us.”
