Student accommodation is often for 18 to 25s, although could be for younger boarders, or mature students. The same guiding principles apply.
Living in an appealing, well designed environment helps students learn and helps them feel at home. Striking the right balance between human values and learning is critical to good accommodation.
There is no set formula, success can come from a contemporary approach, integrating your heritage, or a mix. As long as the solution promotes social and academic interaction, helps students feel they belong.
Building Dynamic Environments
Accommodation is more than just a bedroom, the quality of other areas within the building matters. Communal spaces, from kitchens to social places are as important as student rooms in establishing a lifestyle.
Thoughtful planning can bring easy movement and access to facilities, encourage interaction and circulation. The spirit of the place will come from the dynamics of the people who live there.
Regulatory, environmental and safety aspects are vital considerations for any student accommodation, yet do not need to dominate. Safety and security should be integrated into sound design, along with the best materials.
Using Practical Solutions
Student accomodation needs to continually look and feel good but can have a hard life. Materials, systems, equipment, or finishes need to cope well.
Choices inspired by industrial and transport design can make sense. Such as self finished materials which do not require redecoration, surfaces with multiple lines of defence, durability always in mind.
This minimises maintenance and running costs, yet need not diminish aesthetic value. The same fine surroundings and furnishings can be evident, simply built in a different way by design.
