The proposal is for a new Student Hub with associated student residences, which is situated on Oxford Road in Bournemouth city centre.
Our geometric solution was based on the creation of varying shaped blocks that would respond to the proposed public realm and pedestrianised areas as well as the varied townscape along Oxford Road. Linked with the base block is a fourteen storey C-shaped block that provides 470 student bedrooms.
The Student Hub is located on three floors and will form part of the new vibrant pedestrian boulevard created as part of the Lansdowne area masterplan. The construction commenced on site in October 2016.
