The Union is an independent charity that exists to represent the needs and views of all 37,000 students at Manchester Metropolitan University

The new £10m award winning Student Union building opened in March 2015 designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, although the exterior design is exquisite, the interior spaces were lacking the finishing touch. The Union approached PEN Studios, a Manchester based Architectural, Interior Design practice to tender for the interior design, to design the key areas of the union.




PEN Studios created the concept of ‘Home away from Home’ to provide working environments to suit all types of students.

We worked directly with the interior designers at PEN Studios for them to pitch their ideas to the panel at The Union.
