Burnley Student Accommodation has provided such a steep learning curve & career experience to our practice that it is invaluable to use. The challenge was to convert a former Victorian cinema – turned nightclub, in the industrial town of Burnley, to vibrant and modern student accommodation for the growing student population in the area.
The project was exciting from the start, with the brief to provide 95 studio rooms fully provided with all the amenities needed for modern student life. The light and spacious central atrium provided a huge amount of daylight for the benefit of the student’s quality of life and well being. The modular design allowed for easy maintenance access and the use of built-in furniture allowed faster completion on the project. Despite large challenges in the construction phase this project is still one we’re proud to have worked on and it has allowed us to naturally progress to our Paisley College project.
