New design concept for MILESTONE Student Living, student apartments and common areas (including lobby, office, MILESTONE gym, learning lounges, club room)

BWM Architekten have developed a new design concept for MILESTONE Student Living, which they call “industrial cosiness”. Contrasting materials and visual elements create a compelling, contemporary look. The furniture consists of a modular system that uses black steel tubing – the “industrial” aspect. This is combined with wood and fabric elements – the “cosiness” aspect. On top of that, the colour concept is adapted to the region in which the respective residence hall is located. BWM’s modern design concept was first realised at Porto Asprela in Portugal, which opened just in time for the start of the new academic year. BWM have also developed separate corporate design manuals for all of the other residences.
