We put together a brief for the site, developed a design and successfully negotiated the proposals with the planning authority.
The accommodation is arranged in three contemporary styled blocks of accommodation and vary in height between 4 and 9 storeys. A central street bisects the site, with the blocks configured on either side around two south facing courtyards. Commercial uses are located at ground floor on the main street frontage.
It is designed to meet Plymouth City Council CS20 Carbon reduction policy of 15% from current standards.
We worked with the University and Plymouth City Planning department to gain a successful consent for the site, and overcame considerable local opposition to the proposals.
