Project Description :

Rio were appointed to develop proposals for this student accommodation development on Whiteladies Rd Conservation Area in Clifton.


The proposals include for 88No. 1 and 2 bed apartments arranged within a single 4 and 5 storey accommodation block offering a variety of apartment types and standards to meet different needs.


The design has responded to extremely challenging design constraints given its sensitive historic setting, and has been developed following intensive dialogue with the local community and stakeholder groups.
The proposals have adopted a contextual yet contemporary approach including references to local vernacular presented with modern crisp detailing. Materials selection reflects the colours and textures of the surrounding environment configured within a rhythmic and well mannered envelope.


The master plan maximizes the potential of this difficult urban site, whilst maintaining the privacy and amenity of local residents and creates a high quality secure development for the new students.
