Lewis &Hickey were appointed by the University of Stirling in May 2011 to develop proposals for the next generation of student accommodation on their campus. This phased programme has already delivered 786 beds through the development of two vacant sites and the demolition and re-building of two existing accommodation blocks.
The proposals are carefully integrated into the mature landscaping setting and will provide top of the range facilities for both student and commercial lets. Through the design process, careful consideration has been given to the integration of the buildings within the landscape and into the structural form of the overall residences neighbourhood. A simple palette of materials is also proposed reflecting the minimalist nature of the existing architecture throughout the campus.
We have recently commenced design work on the fourth phase of student accommodation redevelopment. This next Phase will see the demolition of the current Geddes building with 180 beds to be built on the site. Accommodation will comprise a mixture of single ensuite study bedrooms and studios. The building design will follow the new aesthetic established over the last few years, which respects the original architecture and the campus setting, at the same time creating a crisp, modern, architecture.
