Student Housing Typology Ideas Competition

Competition winning scheme for new approaches to student housing. The competition launched by Campus Livings Villages required ideas to:

  • Create innovative flexible and unique student accommodation
  • Promote student interaction at all levels
  • Create dedicated environments that allow for recreation, socialising and learning
  • Encourage and facilitate environmental awareness and promote sustainability
  • Develop a concept that could adapt and fit to meet various contexts and site formats

The ALA proposal comprised a  system of interconnecting buildings and spaces that when sensitively combined could create varied and exciting campus scenarios. The standardisation and interconnectivity allowed for numerous iterations of accommodation type/layout/massing. Key elements are specifically articulated / expressed and building blocks configured to enable appropriate, well proportioned external spaces to be generated.
