Tommaso Guerra Brings a Fresh, Fun Vibe to Campus X in Rome

The common spaces in college dorms tend to leave a lot to be desired with beaten down furniture and typically lots of beige. For Campus X’s university campus in Rome, they flipped the script and brought Tommaso Guerra in to give these spaces life and they do not disappoint.

Campus X hosts approximately 1,800 students from all over and their Italian campus is the largest. The campus comprises private rooms, along with lots of common areas, like study rooms, lounge spaces, co-working spaces, and a play zone for students to study, relax, or socialize with each other.

The project was divided into two parts – study rooms and the open lounge and play areas – both of which got their own individual design plan. The communal spaces feature plenty of acid colors that give nod to the 80s with gradients that make the walls pop. There’s a colorful ping pong table, plus spots for foosball and pool.

The study rooms feature a much calmer aesthetic with more muted colors and lots of wood for easier concentration.
