Today’s Design Requirements? Thoughtful, Authentic Spaces

Lori Ann Dinkins, President and CEO of Mood Interior Designs in Charlotte, North Carolina, believes the rise in co-working is evidence that student housing designs is further mirroring multifamily in general. “Student housing is aligning more closely with market-rate apartments,” she says. “Study spaces are essentially the cyber cafes and co-working spaces of the multifamily world. The design trick is prioritizing study spaces that can both accommodate academic needs and satisfy student demand for flexibility – so students can feel like they are studying in a new space every day.”
