Upperton Rd, Leicester
This is MAS architecture fourth new build luxury high-end student accommodation scheme based in Leicester City for the same client. The scheme consisting of 46 self-contained studio apartments for student living. This scheme includes a gym, cinema room, and private study areas as well as indoor and outdoor communal areas. The scheme located within cartilage of a Grade 2 listed building and the design developed with this in mind.
Utilising MAS skills and expertises in old and new approach a well-balanced contextual design approach applied and the results are incredible. Within the courtyard through MAS bay window abstract, we were able to develop very interesting elevation treatments and avoid direct overlooking. This paved the way in having the blocks closer but just enough to provide sufficient natural light yet provide a very intimate space for students to enjoy and be proud to call it their new home during their stay.
