St. Thomas Street Bristol – Student Accommodation
GSSArchitecture have been appointed for a £22m new build student accommodation scheme in Bristol City Centre. GSS are providing architectural services for the 9 storey project, which is set to provide 357 student bedspaces, designed specifically to support the University of Bristol.
The project sits in the Redcliffe Development Quarter of Bristol and forms an important part of the exciting regeneration of this area. The demolition of an existing office block will facilitate the delivery of the new student accommodation, which will comprise a mix of cluster flats and studios, student social areas, a dedicated courtyard, commercial space, laundry and games area.
The building will be one of the very first in Bristol to connect to the Council-run district heating network, ensuring delivery of a new low-carbon building that forms the first stage of transforming Bristol into a carbon-neutral city by 2050.
