Student living facilities at the heart of Nottingham's Creative Quarter. The Lower Parliament Street site will accommodate a 5/6 storey, 215-bed purpose-built student accommodation development that will make additional beds available to the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University students in the city.
The development features a combination of studios, accessible studios and en-suite rooms arranged in clusters, with a total gross internal area of 6,729 square meters. A roof terrace, communal amenity areas, private dining, gym, and laundry facilities are provided as part of the development, as well as a food and beverage unit on the ground floor and the relocation of an existing network substation.
The site lies within the Sneiton Market Conservation Area, within Nottingham's Creative Quarter. This is an area of the city that enjoys a vibrant mix of urban living with an independent retail mix. Well connected through existing pedestrian and cycle links, it provides convenient access to all parts of the city centre.
The demand for accuracy and quality on this project was vital considering all the design details. The impressive front façade constitutes a mix of projecting and stretcher brickwork and features the ‘Sneinton’ signage spelt out in white brickwork. Curved panels, projecting panels, projecting curved panels and a soldier coursing parapet detail adds to the clean lines of the structure.
