High-quality student accommodation

Constructed as a brand-new property with a variety of fully furnished studios and just a short walk from the University of Reading’s London Road Campus, Prestige Student Living’s 79 Silver Street is an exemplar of high-quality student accommodation. Alongside the well-specified apartments, the building features an Instagrammable cinema room, common room and gym, all with stylish, high-quality features that set the building apart.

Setting the mood

The inside of 79 Silver Street has been elevated by Jigsaw Interior Architecture, a specialist residential practice developing high-spec interiors and tasked with creating a luxury look, the team has certainly delivered. Meeting Prestige Student Living’s requirement for a hardwearing and easy to maintain floor, Jigsaw opted for Luxury Vinyl Tiles, including our award-winning Studio Moods custom modular vinyl concept.

Starting in the reception and amenity spaces, Jigsaw has made the intent of the interior clear with the super-luxury look of Studio Moods Wicker 286. A pattern that adds a bespoke feel in a dark wood, Wicker is perfectly in-tune with the Art Deco flavour. With a luxurious blue tiled reception and dramatically lit arch walnut doors, brass detailing and stylish contemporary lighting, the entrance is a grand affair.

“The basket weave design of Wicker is definitely returning in interior finishes and the dark oak floor is a timeless colour that gives the development longevity.”

From working out to relaxing in style

For the gym, our Moduleo 55 Hoover Stone, an authentic worn concrete look, adds a stylish yet practical floor. Water-resistant and easy to clean thanks to Protectonite®, it is ideal for less intensive residential gyms, where specialist solutions aren’t required. Suitable for heavy commercial use, Moduleo 55 is our highest level LVT specification.

Then, throughout the building’s studio apartments, Moduleo 40 LVT in the light grey of Midland Oak 22110 adds a calming yet modern feel. This floor is popular for residential projects such as PBSA or PRS due to a more cost-effective specification that still retains excellent durability and the same Protectonite® finish for scratch and stain-resistance as well as easy maintenance. Giving a high-quality floor with a home-like appearance thanks to its subtle yet classic oak grain, Moduleo 40 Midland Oak continues the luxurious theme. 

“IVC Commercial’s product range is packed full of great designs and colours with options that can work with almost any scheme. Backed with the competitive pricing and excellent service, it proved a winning combination for 79 Silver Street."

“As I’m Belgian, it’s also great to be able to specify high-quality solutions from a well-regarded Belgian company. While I won’t be repeating the scheme on other projects for the client due to their boutique approach, I’ll certainly be using IVC Commercial again.”
