Scale520 Bedrooms


The development comprises 92 student flats to provide 520 study bedrooms together with ancillary accommodation and associated external works. The accommodation is arranged around four courtyards with a central support, social and administration facility. The courtyards create a sense of enclosure, belonging and neighbourhood within the development by providing a hierarchy moving from public to private space. The scale, massing and height of the buildings fit well with the existing buildings, site topography and views from the surrounding countryside.
