The design creates a range of different areas for socialising and study and now provides lounges, study areas, work pods, refreshment areas, cinema and entertainment areas, games pods, table tennis, pool, table football areas, a gym and laundry. The design takes took inspiration from the diversity of Leeds and its industrial heritage in the use of materials, fabrics and lighting.
