Taking students through a series of stages in a business start up journey, the StartUp Lounge was a ground-breaking new facility for City College Norwich. LSI’s design proposes a series of discrete interior spaces, designed to generate collaboration and inquisitiveness in students, moving from spaces designed for research and concept work, through to business planning and presentation.

The aesthetic is purposely dynamic and youthful, loosely corporate but reasonably remote from typical education environment to encourage a more professional and self-starting approach to education. Local entrepreneurs and supporting business are encouraged to use the StartUp Lounge alongside and in some cases, aiding the students in their own ideas and skills.
