Cavendish Place provides 119 student bedrooms for UNITE in one residential block in Hulme and is located on the site of a former Public House close to the Manchester Metropolitan University Campus.
A detailed engagement and consultation process was undertaken during the design stage with local community groups and planners to ensure the project responded to local community concerns and the principles of the Hulme Regeneration Urban Design Code.
The design team developed the massing of the scheme in order to respond to the scale of surrounding buildings and the elevations were carefully composed to bring natural light into bedrooms and communal areas whilst maintaining privacy from neighbours.
