Old Printworks Student Accommodation

jmarchitects

This development is located on the site of a former printworks building in EdinburghÍs Southside conservation area, between the central campus of The University of Edinburgh and Holyrood Park. The completed building provides 235 individual student residences (44 studios and 191 cluster flats) with associated amenity spaces including, social rooms, quiet study spaces, laundry, gym, external landscaped courtyards and covered secure cycle storage. Careful consideration of the context was a key factor in determining the final configuration and massing of the project. The design unlocked the maximum potential of the site by creating a clear tenemental form towards Bernard Terrace, and behind this, two distinct landscaped courtyard spaces, which provide outlook and amenity for the student rooms in a mews type configuration.
