Set within the mature landscaped area of Orchard Road, this proposed 216 bedspace student accommodation acts as an extension of UCCs’ campus. Three blocks, ranging from 1-5 storeys in height in response to the topography, are surrounded by existing trees and hedgerows, which offer privacy to the adjacent dwellings, whilst also maintaining the distinct character of the area. The scheme offers external amenity in the form of gardens and courtyards, and internal amenity, such as a study room, cinema and lounge. The domestic scale reception area is given a prominent location and form, providing both easy way-finding and passive supervision.
