Dorset Street Student Accommodation

Dorset Street Student Accommodation

The mixed use development of an underutilised brownfield urban site represents a significant opportunity to aid in the area’s regeneration. The building provides accommodation & amenity for 447 students. The proposal reanimates Dorset Street by providing a variety of uses at ground level including a student gym, café, student housing reception and foyer and a single subdivision retail unit. A simple articulated break in the street line is provided to mark the entrance to the primary use of the site. The plan arrangement repairs the urban edges of the site, providing a positive street frontage to Dorset Street and Wellington Street and elevating Paradise Place from a neglected back lane to a dignified residential street. External courtyards are linked with internal student activities and programmed with orientation and access to daylight in mind, to provide an enhanced level of student amenity.
