Developers strike Stirling student accommodation deal
February 21 2018
Susan Stephens Architects are behind designs for the 207-bed property overlooking the River Forth spread across two separate buildings and including a cinema, gym, games room, laundry and study areas.
In a design statement the architect wrote: “The ‘L’ shaped building creates a dual relationship between the riverfront and the existing residences along Forth Crescent. The design’s contemporary approach clearly identifies the intervention whilst mirroring traits of Stirling’s prominent parallel gables.
“The building follows the site’s topography with two storeys cut into the slope facing towards the river. The accommodation on these floors follow the terraced landscaping, allowing for views towards the river and beyond.”
Construction is expected to begin this spring to complete in time for the 2019/20 academic year.
