To be built on the site of a Victorian residential home, the project will feature 30 units arranged within six pavilions around a central courtyard. Communal areas of the pavilions will be connected at the ground level.
Each pavilion will contain four-, five-, or six-bedroom units, with private bedrooms and studies alongside communal living and recreation space.
Our proposal is a departure from typical student housing and instead offers accommodation on a friendly, domestic scale that provides a pleasant living environment for students, said the architects.
In response to the site’s location in the North Oxford Suburb Conservation Area, the buildings will be low-rise.
The project received planning permission is October of 2015, and is currently “ready to go on the site.”
