Rich industrial heritage used in a contemporary manner

Located on a brownfield site on a main commuter route, this 330 bed scheme represents an important gateway into the City and is ideally situated to accommodate students from both Bath Spa University and the University of Bath.

Bounded to the north by the river Avon and to the west and east by listed buildings and structures, the proposals draw upon the rich industrial heritage of the site and these have been used in a contemporary manner to inform the buildings’ appearance.

Our interiors team have developed a design which complements the industrial aesthetic and ensures this design continuity throughout the buildings’ internal finishes.

McLaren Property and Stride Treglown have been working closely with the local authority to ensure that the proposals reflect the historic importance of the site.

Accommodation is provided in a variety of formats – cluster flats, studio flats and town houses, ensuring the best possible selection for potential undergraduate, postgraduate, domestic and international student occupants. Generous communal facilities have been provided both internally and externally ensuring that this development will represent the best private student accommodation in Bath.

Stride Treglown have succeeded in meeting the challenge of a demanding brief on a site of great sensitivity to deliver a design for a high quality scheme setting a new benchmark for accommodation in the City of Bath and we look forward to working with the team on future projects.
