from concept to completion
The former Leicester University hostel was situated in a stunning building but was dated and had remained redundant for number of years and became surplus to requirements for the university.
The client appointed DSA to rejuvenate the building, by creating a stunning and current student accommodation scheme which would cater for the modern demands of students.
The scheme intensified the 19 rooms with shared toilet facilities into a high quality 31 room student accommodation building which included en-suite facility for all rooms, spacious student studio rooms, shared communal spaces, laundry room and storage spaces.
