Agilité Wins Design and Build Contract With The Student Hotel in Paris
Traditional student accommodation may not create images of vibrant, trendy surroundings with well-designed rooms and carefully considered spaces. But The Student Hotel – founded by Scottish entrepreneur Charlie MacGregor in Amsterdam – has set out to change this antiquated stereotype.
A brief look at the brand’s website reveals that The Student Hotel is: “…committed to creating state-of-the-art facilities and colourful experiences […to…] change the way we live, work and travel and redefine our understanding of what makes a ‘student’.” And it seems that word is spreading quickly, with the company reportedly fast becoming Europe’s biggest hybrid accommodation for students and professionals alike.
And we are delighted to announce that Agilité Solutions has just been awarded a design and build contract to remodel the company’s Paris location.
The 5 month project will see Agilité completely transform the public areas of the building, including the corridors, lobby and reception area, as well as a new food and beverage space. Existing communal environments on the upper floors will also be converted into new bedrooms.
“When we saw an inspiration photo from The Student Hotel’s Florence property, we couldn’t wait to get started,”
Commented Douglas Deptula, Agilité’s project executive.
“This exciting project will take this hotel to the next level – a state-of-the art standard for which this client has become renowned.”
Work has already begun and is expected to be completed by January 2020.
