A sustainable residential campus, set amongst the landscape.

PROJECT:
New student houses at Atlantic College

CLIENT:

LOCATION:

SECTOR:

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.
