Student Residences, Swanston Hall, Belfast

Manson Architects and Planners

Located to the north west of Belfast City Hall; the design proposal was to retain the existing grand four storey facadeof the linen factory located on Queen Street and College Street. Early discussions with Ulster Architectural Heritage Society and the Local Authority identified that our proposal would create a positive skyline geometry that would compliment the rhythm and visual integrity of the existing facade.

Within the masterplan Manson have created a shaped, curved tower block that enhances the Belfast skyline; with elevations clad in a dynamic, reflective and staccato bonded panels. Many of the internal existing structural details have been retained and form part of the new scheme interiors to ensure a historical link to the original linen factory usage.
