Project Name: Westpark Student Housing
Building Type: Residential
Architect: Simpson & Brown Architects
Project: The design of this student housing evolved as a response to the existing mature landscaping and the requirement to create a memorable entrance statement that would increase the complex’s visibility. This led to the scheme’s main architectural statement – a four-storey oak clad tower which sits within a band of trees. Being constructed of untreated hardwood, this will gradually weather to take on the soft patina of the existing trees.
Materials Featured: European Oak
