We have created a green haven at the centre of a new student residence development in Cambridge. The modern building is complemented by a contemporary approach to the landscape design whilst respecting the historic collegic traditions of the University. A central courtyard provides both private and social spaces for the students creating a friendly and welcoming environment.
Planting creates a focus for the design and provides privacy for the rooms adjacent to the courtyard. The project embraces sustainability by including green and brown roofs, SuDS, planting to attract wildlife and extensive facilities for cycles.
