Student Accomodation

As part of a design competition for a leading national contractor Synergy Architects were asked to provide a scheme for student accommodation in Selly Oak, Birmingham. Within a very tight site in close proximity to Birmingham University the scheme was required to maximise the site’s commercial viability, visual impact and likelihood of planning success,  whilst maintaining ease of buildability to minimise construction costs. Operational and maintenance issues and areas of design innovation were also key to the brief.
