Swirles Court wins University Halls of Residence of the Year
We are thrilled to announce that rhp’s Swirles Court project has won the Property Week University Halls of Residence of the Year award.
In a glittering ceremony on Wednesday 12th December, rhp was presented with the top award for University of Cambridge's post-graduate accommodation, which forms part of the city's new Eddington development.
The project provides contemporary accommodation for over 300 students, taking inspiration from traditional Cambridge collegiate architecture while incorporating a number of innovative low-energy and sustainable aspects.
The award follows rhp’s recent shortlisting for BD Higher Education Architect of the Year 2018.
Speaking on the win, Andrew Drummond, rhp Associate said:
Fantastic news, and a big thank you to Property Week and this year's award sponsors David Phillips Social Living. Designing and delivering amazing living spaces for students is such an important area of work and research for our team. We’re currently working with Universities, Oxbridge Colleges and private developers on a wide range of typologies and some really new and innovative styles of living – drawing together twenty years of experience with our ongoing research, whilst working with curious, enlightened and committed clients to re-think and reimagine the living environment to suit today’s and future students’ needs. We look forward to sharing our exciting current projects as they complete over the next two years!
