Student’s Castle

Manchester, Student Castle, 1 Great Marlborough St, Manchester M1 5NJ, Vereinigtes Königreich

Project Description

Slim and elegant, the new student accommodation building stretches up to the skies in one of the UK’s most important university city. The four towers of different heights overlap each other and combine into a fragmented form.
The engobed terracotta cladding uses four muted shades of grey to produce a pixelated pattern that conveys the impression of a steel shell. The restrained, almost „technical“ colouration adds additional significance to this fascinating, modernistic building.
