ACA has produced a design for student accommodation in Hull on behalf of Kexgill, a modern and forward-thinking student accommodation provider. The scheme proposes to regenerate redundant land in-between some student accommodation in Hull and the Hull University campus. The project will improve the student experience and contribute towards the regeneration of the area.
This scheme provides a safer and more sociable environment whilst creating a pragmatic use of space. The use of bamboo ‘screens’ will provide an element of privacy to the student accommodation, whilst creating a new ‘front’ to the houses. The scheme uses natural materials where possible, using trees to create a more natural and soothing environment. The illumination of passageways and facades encourage a more social atmosphere and provide a safer environment. Circular benches at meeting points encourage social places for the students to meet on the way to or on the way back from University.
