Hospitality – Leeds University Students’ Union
Leeds University Students’ Union
wdl Interior Architects were selected from a design competition to revitalise the Leeds University Students’ Union buildings, some of the largest in the UK, with award winning facilities.
The design and build project was carried out in the summer recess, working to a fixed budget in partnership with a local fit out contractor.
The reception and bar receive up to 25,000 visits a day during term time, and the design had to reflect this. The terrace bar was remodelled to include a longer serving counter, more booth and bench seating and variable lighting options for day and night time events.
