Ward Road

Project

122-bed Student Accommodation, Ward Road, Dundee

Client

Ardmuir/Stuart Milne Construction

Description

The massing of the building reflects the immediate contextual hierarchies of its neighbours whilst also redefining the respective street frontages, with six and seven storey blocks along Ward Road, and af ive storey block facing North Lindsay Street. The corner of Ward Road and North Lindsay Street is a key focal point and we have emphasized the turning of the corner with use of corner windows, large areas of glazing and a tower, with metal clad feature roof, stepping up to 7 and a half storeys.

This high quality development responds to its urban context and the substantial scale of the surrounding buildings to produce an imaginative high-density solution to the requirement for affordable student accommodation in Dundee city centre.
