With an extremely tight budget of £35k to spread over some 300m2 of interior, Aim focused on priority features in this redesign of Dundee University Students’ Association’s Level 5. The scheme introduces a combination of burgundy ‘lounge’ booth seating, finishes of flock wallpaper, and rustic brick. Baroque feature frames, neon captions, and wall motifs contrast with the industrial bulkhead and LED lighting to completely transform the space into an ‘industrial chic’ interior.
The strategically positioned neon sign was located within the entrance area in order to create an attractive focal point, drawing customers up the stair and into the now very popular venue at the top floor of the building.
“Our expectations were exceeded when we saw the design proposals submitted by Aim. The end result is a complete transformation that has enhanced the status of the bar as a destination and has had an immediate impact on turnover.’’ - Chris Clarke - DUSA
“Aim have worked closely with our promotions team to develop and enhance our ideas. The use of light, pattern and texture throughout the space has created a feel of restrained luxury that we had no idea could be achieved on our modest budget.” - Tammy Fox - DUSA
“Aberdeen Science Centre have very much appreciated the thoughtful approach taken by Aim Design to create a display which captures the true essence of current energy issues." - Aberdeen Science Centre
