This will be the first off-campus purpose built student residences in the city centre of Norwich.
The proposal for our client, Alumno Developments Ltd provides 228 en-suite study bedrooms including a small amount of studios. The bedrooms are organised as cluster flats of between five beds and 11 beds per cluster with a shared kitchen, living and dining room in each flat. The ground floor of the building features a large double height entrance lobby which allows access through to the private courtyard gardens where the access to the common facilities such as common room, laundry and cycle storage are accessed.
The top of the building features a reading room with mezzanine for quiet study and amazing roof top views over the city. This ‘object’ appears as a glass lantern that sits on top of the building.
The project was completed in September 2015.
