This new development on a prominent site close to the city centre will provide much needed serviced apartments for the City’s large population of visiting researchers and academics along with community facilities and 4 townhouses. The ‘aparthotel’ will contain a mix of studio, 1 bed and duplex 2 bed apartments along with a restaurant, social hub area, spa, pool and courtyard garden. A community space at the ground floor has its own small kitchen and wc facilities and is adjacent to a small deli/cafe, also for public use. A basement car park provides off-street parking for residents of the apartments, the townhouses have dedicated on street parking as well as private gardens and roof terraces.
The scheme responds in a considered and sensitive way to the scale and character of the residential context but retains a high degree of modularity and efficiency. The townhouses address a new ‘street’ that has the possibility to connect in the longer term to proposed adjacent developments.
