Client - S Harrison Developments Ltd / York St John University

This constrained brownfield site within York's historic core has been redeveloped to provide 270 new study bedrooms in three blocks to help meet the demand from the City's growing student population.

Attempts made by others to gain planning approval had failed to reconcile the sites' technical complexities with the planners' sensitivities to the issues of scale and external appearance.

Imaginative design and skilled negotiation meant that CSP were able to win the planners' support, overcome the constraints imposed by the large culverted watercourse that crosses the site and resolve the technical issues of archaeology and flooding.

The contemporary design aims to create a clear definition between the public and private domains and a smooth transition in scale between the new and existing buildings.
