Student Residences at St Lucia Campus
Wilson Architects + Partners Hill win $250m University of Queensland Student Residences Project.
The University of Queensland (UQ) has selected Wilson Architects + Partners Hill to design the $250m flagship Student Residences Project at the St Lucia campus.
This project continues their longstanding relationship and follows their highly successful collaboration on the multi-award-winning Translational Research Institute (TRI).
‘We are excited about bringing the best of education and residential design to the University of Queensland. Wilson Architects’ extensive experience in education design will be highly complemented by Timothy Hill’s exemplary residential projects,’ said Hamilton Wilson, Managing Director, Wilson Architects.
The team has a unique combination of expertise in designing for both ‘living and learning’.
UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said the project will offer much more than an attractive living space on one of the world’s most beautiful university campuses.
“It will be home-away-from-home for 1300 students, with around-the-clock pastoral support and security, easy access to campus sporting and cultural facilities and regular public transport,” Høj said.
“It will set a quality benchmark for university student housing – particularly in the subtropics.”
The Student Residences Project will deliver quality, self-catered student accommodation. Accommodation will include single rooms with en suites in cluster apartments, and self-contained studio apartments. In addition, there will be shared laundry, social and recreation areas, academic support space, bicycle storage and limited car parking.
‘We are privileged to be engaged by such a sophisticated client,’ said Timothy Hill, Managing Director, Partners Hill. ‘UQ’s brief calls for a complete and life enhancing environment.’
