Otago Polytechnic Student Village

A variety of 231 Student dorm rooms, apartments, studios and common areas, over 5 floor levels, as part of an on-campus village, providing accommodation for Dunedin’s polytechnic university students.

The brief? To deliver a flexible, on-trend design that was both ergonomically friendly and reflected the sustainable nature of the building. The product also needed to be on-time and on-budget, while making best-use of the space-restrictions within each room.

Enhance worked with project managers to develop and hone the design, right through to supply and installation. The study desks, wardrobes, kitchen cabinetry and shelving were all manufactured by Compac Furniture, using Paneltec product. Enhance also sourced and supplied appliances and accessories, including a fridge, microwave, chair and pinboard.

The result? Vibrant and communal living spaces, in keeping with the environmental nature of the building, and providing students with the ultimate place to call home.

Our client satisfaction was priority, and the completed project fulfilled this, with a very happy client and the promise of great referrals!
