Edinburgh University student housing plans submitted
Proposals have been tabled for the redevelopment of Deaconess House, a former Edinburgh hospital, to form new student accommodation for Edinburgh University.

Works will entail refurbishment of the existing Victorian property alongside demolition of various outbuildings to form a new build extension, accommodating 334 single occupancy rooms arranged around a central private courtyard.

A materials palette of natural stone and powder coated aluminium panels will be used whilst an extensive part green roof will also be used.

The scheme has been designed by the Kalyvides Partnership for Mace Real Estate.

At last someone building student accommodation in the form of a college rather than in the form of social housing!
