Project Overview

A contemporary six storey new build student facility providing high quality city living in the centre of Leicester.

At street level, accommodation includes an entrance foyer, an office, a large communal amenity room, support spaces and three large studios with a small, landscaped courtyard to the rear. Most of the living accommodation is located on the upper floors with forty-eight bedrooms in twelve bed clusters – each cluster benefitting from a large, shared living space, there are a further ten studios on the top floor.

The elevations feature high quality brickwork, with base and piano nobile picked out in subtly different colours. Feature cladding is used to highlight the social spaces on the upper floors. The attic storey is formed of a mansard type roof with dramatic feature pods enlivening the elevation and breaking the roofline.
