Mary Parker House – student accommodation
Completed in 2017 the five-storey accommodation block houses 165 en-suite beds, including 22 studios, as well as a reception, cinema room, gym, study rooms, games room and laundry.
The scheme follows rising demand for quality living spaces by Plymouth University students and is conveniently placed for students being just a six minute walk to The University and Plymouth College of Art. The site lies within the curtilage of a Grade II listed building and a sensitive design solution has been prepared with materials and detailing to promote a contemporary building which acknowledges its Victorian neighbour.
The building is steel framed with lightweight partitions to allow future flexibility and incorporates carbon reduction technologies to minimise any environmental impact. Spacious communal areas are provided together with quiet study areas and each room is furnished to the highest standards with modular ensuite bathroom accommodation.
