High specification student accommodation close to Ashton University in Birmingham completed in summer 2011. The project features two blocks, one of up to 17 storeys and one of up to 9 storeys which form around a central courtyard.
The scheme comprises a total of 119 student cluster flats providing accommodation for 656 students. The scheme demonstrates the popularity of high specification student living, with all bedrooms being sold out within two weeks of release.
The project focused on creating a ‘hotel feel’ of accommodation by using less institutional – style fixtures and fittings, along with contemporary furniture design and intelligent storage solutions. However, this more up – market and desirable student destination was still achieved at an affordable price.
