Demesne Architects were commissioned to prepare designs for a 115 bed student accommodation development, which will also feature a public restaurant and plaza. Each en-suite student accommodation room is self contained. There are both cooking facilities within rooms as well as a number of communal kitchens for social cooking and dining as well as numerous recreation spaces. Students will also benefit from an on site gym and cafe.
The project site is in a sensitive location, being part of an architectural conservation area. There is a prominent protected structure on part of it. The contemporary contrasting design philosophy has been well received by the Council’s Architectural Division. Demesne are currently progressing the project through the planning process
