Located near to De Montford University and Leicester Royal Infirmary, the project at Jarrom St in Leicester consists of student and key worker accommodation split over two phases which will eventually provide 299 studios in total.
The first phase of the development for 140 rooms is now complete and phase 2 for 159 rooms is scheduled to follow on to site in Summer 2015.
We have worked closely with the client and planning authorities to deliver a high end design which sets a benchmark for developments of this nature. We have paid particular focus to the combined materiality of the two phases with the second developing the brick based palette of the first scheme. Together the two buildings create a collage of tones and fenestration that adds subtle but refined interest and detail to the landscape.
