Sunderland Student Housing

Don’t worry – we don’t think this project is going any further – but we were asked by our client to develop initial ideas for an ambitious provocation for high quality flexible student housing. The design, whilst dense, prioritised wellbeing and centred around an internal vertical ‘street’ encouraging chance interactions and exercise which linked a number of gym and recreational spaces – topped by a glazed roof garden exercise and relaxation space. A new masterplan for the area has resulted in a somewhat different vision for this site, so this is one of those ‘that got away’.
