Corstorphine + Wright Architects has been appointed by Fusion to design 850 student beds within a suite of buildings ranging from 3 stories to 16.
Fusion Students has a strong track record delivering high quality student accommodation across the UK. Their approach challenges the usual conventions for how students live and use space as part of their studies and has seen successful completed developments in Bristol, Newcastle and Cardiff.
The prime city centre location, currently occupied by Stokes Tiles, is in the heart of Sheffield city centre on the corner of Fitzwilliam Street and Moore Street. Whilst the area has seen pockets of new development in recent times, we believe our proposed scheme presents a huge opportunity to enhance both the urban fabric and public realm in this location, and also be a potential catalyst for further regeneration.
The variety of accommodation proposed will attract undergraduate and post graduate students of all ages and nationalities, contributing to the vitality and diversity of the immediate area and city beyond.
