The Villa building is three storeys in height and will nestle neatly between the Grasshopper Lodge and Cranmer Lodge. The Villa will reflect some of the period design features used in the existing lodges. Building facades will be constructed in red brickwork, with high level pitched roofs being tiled and composite aluminium/timber windows complemented with solar shading. The low level flat roofs will provide another sustainable element with a ‘living’ brown roof that will self-vegetate.
The Garden Building will be two storeys in height and sit across from Cranmer Villa. Visible from the surrounding streets, it has been designed to resemble the heritage of the existing university buildings, while delivering an innovative design. Centrally, the ground floor gives way to present a glazed common room placed in-between the central lawned garden and the south facing courtyard.
We are delighted to collaborate with King’s College on this exciting innovative scheme. Our focus is on delivering a successful project and providing quality sustainable accommodation that will serve students for many years to come.
