|:||Named for the drapers and milliners, tailors and upholsterers who once flourished in this part of Liverpool, this 738-bed purpose-built student accommodation scheme, one of the largest in Europe, is conceived as an intimate hamlet of huts and hideaways faced in decorative and robust tiles and grouts, some sparkling with glitter, emulating the weave of cloth. Inside, walls are faced with sound- absorbent fabric while furniture, integrated and loose, is in monochromatic shades to intensify the therapeutic effects of the colours selected for the purpose. Plants, inspired by a suit’s floral buttonhole, or the corsage on a dress, provides soft detail and biophilic benefits.|
