This 165-bed student accommodation development is designed around a central open landscaped courtyard space, with the appropriate proportion and dimension to allow for solar access, cross ventilation, and a positive amenity for the students.
The size and proportions of internal and external spaces, together with a considered approach to indoor-outdoor activities maximises the amenity of the occupants. The proposal has a relative height, as well as a modulation and break up of form reflective of the scale of the surrounding context. Stepping the building to follow the existing topography as well as to match the relative scale of the adjoining buildings further reinforces this.
The design presents a high-quality student accommodation insertion into the Arundel and Catherine streetscape and is designed as a modern yet contextual piece of architecture that will be a substantial and appropriate architectural addition to Glebe
