Detail

This new 350-bed student residential Scheme is located in the heart of Swansea, previously occupied by the HMRC. Currently in planning, this development aims to provide high quality private landscape for residents, improvements to the public realm to reactivate the high street and will feature extensive water, carbon and energy saving sustainability features to archieve a BREEAM “excellent” rating.

The building ranges from 5 storeys to 11 storeys. The design of the overall massing has been continuously driven with the site context in mind, including the level changes, local and distant views, as well as its presence and significance within its setting and relationship with existing vernacular.
