RH to house Cambridge students

  • Comment
RH Partnership has released these images of new student accommodation at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.

The £11.3 million project, which is already under construction, will provide new space for 150 people on an open site next to the college's playing fields.

The buildings are laid out in terraces, creating open landscape courts and a green lane that links the new development to the college's existing gardens and residences to the north.

An RH Partnership spokesperson said: 'The design uses a blend of traditional materials, including facing brick, plain tiles, oak boarding and metal dormers to create a high density 'collegiate' scheme.'

Small groups of en-suite rooms are clustered around access staircases from the gardens. These are linked to form houses of 12 to 18 students, sharing common rooms and other facilities.

The site has its own porter's lodge, study rooms and computer room. The scheme is located just over a mile from the main college.

The architect won a design competition in 2003 to work on the scheme and the first buildings will be ready for occupation in October 2006.
