Atlantic College

A sustainable residential campus, set amongst the landscape.

New student houses at Atlantic College

United World Colleges

South Wales


This design proposal for four new student homes at Atlantic College was shortlisted in a recent RIBA international design competition.

The proposal functions at 3 levels, the site, the house and finally the individual bedroom. The approach to each of these reflects the practice’s definition of the project’s key organisational problem – that of arranging shared and private space.

The site is defined by a meandering pathway linking all four houses at a level grade through the sloping site. This connects the individual social entities, running through each house’s courtyard to ensure a constant connection to the school family. The path also creates a green link, forming a conduit for services and water harvesting, and creating the backbone of an environmentally integrated sustainable campus.
