Weeks to build
The iconic student accommodation facility at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a 720 bed on campus residential community. With its central Sydney CBD location, the design necessitated careful consideration of existing buildings both on-site and in close vicinity. Featuring a range of recreational and shared amenities for students on campus, the facility accommodates high density accommodation in an extremely tight floor space, while maintaining independence from the surrounding academic space.
The design includes a mix of 308 studio apartments, 38 accessible studio apartments, 37 two bed apartments and 50 six bed apartments. Amenities throughout include a gorgeous rooftop outdoor recreational space with barbeque facilities and outdoor seating, making the most of the spectacular views across the city.
Common areas include a games room, theatrette, music room, activity room, computer gaming room, and a lounge and meals room. The facility also includes purpose built study/tutorial rooms on each accommodation floor and a café on level 2. The building has become a distinguishing architectural feature on the Sydney skyline. Hutchinson Builders was extremely pleased to mobilise preparatory demolition works for this development three months ahead of schedule.
