The Quad, Norwich


Project tags


The Quad’ by Alumno Developments proposes modern new-build student accommodation within the city centre.

The site is located on a high rise island of development which includes the primary offices for Aviva, which can be seen from across the city. This provides an opportunity to close an obvious void in the street and create a bold building that has a strong presence on All Saints Green. Our design process is carefully considering views of the project, and its surroundings, which in turn will inform the final number of storeys, shape and overall massing of the building.

The design is currently a combination of five blocks stepping up in height from eight storeys in the south, peaking at fourteen to the north of the site. The blocks back to break up the building’s volumes in cognisance of the plot sizes of the historic buildings across the street.
