John Street


CLIENT: Downing Students

SECTOR: All, Student Accommodation

STATUS: Planning

Occupying a vacant and derelict site in the centre of Aberdeen the proposals comprise 374 bedrooms in two 6 and 8 storey blocks arranged a central courtyard.

The blocks respond positively to the immediate context to reinforce the street frontage to John Street by infilling the previous gap site and introduce a ‘landmark’ tower feature at the prominent south-west corner. A sympathetic palette of facing brick, ceramic and metal cassette rainscreen systems are applied to create a contemporary aesthetic which responds to the industrial heritage of the site.

An application for full planning consent was granted in March 2017
