Delivered by Watkin Jones Group on behalf of Nido Student and Newmark Developments, Boyce House offers a unique blend of high-quality, modern student living with expansive social lounges, landscaped terraces and courtyard garden; located in a former industrial area, minutes from Glasgow’s vibrant city centre and world-class universities and colleges.
Formally occupied by Bell’s Pottery and specialist printing company John Watson & Co, Boyce House gestures towards the site’s industrial past. The form of the building reinstates and strengthens the urban block, with strong but subtle elevations evoking the image of previous factories and warehouses. This is achieved through extensive use of a red-stock brick and an elevation hierarchy characterised by an ordered arrangement of student bedrooms above recessed bays containing large double-height spaces at street level.
Comprising 401 student bedrooms, Boyce House delivers numerous accommodation options to meet a wide range of student needs. With all student bedrooms accessed via the social lounges at ground floor, the integration of high-quality sleeping accommodation with the internal common spaces and external landscaped areas is key to the development’s success. Modern shared amenities include an onsite gym; cinema and karaoke rooms; and a social kitchen for cooking demonstrations and group dining.
