Buccleuch Place and Meadow Lane Student Accommodation, Edinburgh

jmarchitects has been commissioned by the University of Edinburgh to design new student accommodation at Buccleuch Place and Meadow Lane in Edinburgh. The project will provide an additional 380 beds over 4 phases. Lots 1 & 2 involve the redevelopment of existing University office accommodation to residential use at Buccleuch Place. Lots 3 & 4 consist of two new build projects at Meadow Lane. The project is now on site.

The Challenge

The University of Edinburgh has a strategic aim of increasing the provision of student accommodation within their portfolio. This will allow them to meet their current guarantee in support of an increasing student population and be able in due course to extend that guarantee further.

The Solution

A sensitive approach to this historic environment has resulted in a design that is sympathetic to the Southside area. The high quality finishes and approach to landscaping will create a fit for purpose student residence that will enhance the area.

The Outcome

The design of both the refurbishment and new build elements demonstrates a sensitive approach to student living, directly adjacent to the University Campus.
