Collegelands is Vastint Hospitality’s first student housing development in Europe. The use of part-modular, cross-laminated timber construction reduced typical construction time, improved build quality and enhanced the overall sustainability credentials of the building.
We designed an S-shaped building which encloses a private courtyard to the south, together with a semi-public courtyard to the north.
The six-storey building has accommodation for 458 students with a mix of standard, cluster and wheelchair rooms.
Standard studios have integrated kitchen facilities, while cluster and accessible studios share one of the four communal kitchens on each floor.
Gerben de Witt, Vastint Hospitality ‘It shows that such great achievements can be born from teamwork, close collaboration, devotion, good technical knowledge and fun. This complete team truly has been amazing’.
