London based architects WilkinsonEyre has designed a striking student village for the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, England.
Made up of a series of prefabricated “pods,” the design offers a simple, sustainably minded student accommodation option.
Each pod consists of a cross-laminated timber interior, wrapped in a layer of super insulation and clad in anodised aluminium.
The full height, triple glazed facade of each pod has been strategically angled to give a sense of space and privacy. Each takes advantage of views across the campus, while also creating a series of collective social spaces outside and inside within their nooks and crannies.
The landscape setting of these accommodation pods provides ample green space for students to interact with, linking to the nearby Dyson Woodland Walk.
