KINGSWAY, SWANSEA

 

The Kingsway is a student residential proposal located on The Kingsway not far from the heart of Swansea city centre.

 

DAY were invited to develop designs for a high specification block of student accommodation which would inhabbit the site and reaffirm the boundary of the street.

 

The resultant design features and internal landscaped courtyard for use by future residents, is a gridded brick fa├žade in reference to the surrounding context and also draws upon the neighbouring built facades, as inspiration for fenestration and aperture patternation.
