Creating active and safe student residences

Specialist student accommodation developer and operator Victoria Hall Management Limited, with the support of the University of Bristol, is seeking to deliver purpose-built student apartments across two sites in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. Chapman Taylor was commissioned to design the new developments as architecturally striking landmarks and active and safe student hubs.

A mix of townhouses and apartments

Chapman Taylor’s design for the Freestone Road site, bordering the railway approach to Temple Meads station, will provide a 204-bed, five-block student residence complex which will offer a mix of apartment blocks and townhouses.

Meeting the needs of students and the city

The concept was developed in consultation with the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council to ensure that the needs of students and the city were uppermost in the design's evolution. The proposed development will relieve some of the housing pressure on residential areas nearby and provide high-quality accommodation and shared facilities in a superb location.

Complementing the area's heritage

The architecture will complement the industrial heritage of the wider Silverthorne Lane area, using simple forms and materials such as grey brickwork, pitched roofs and prominent gable-ends.

Should planning permission be achieved, it is anticipated that the scheme will complete in time for the autumn 2022 opening of the University of Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
