Entry Description

Pablo Fanque House is a new-build student residential accommodation building in Norwich city centre incorporating 244 student bedrooms plus associated social and amenity spaces. The site provided an opportunity to close an obvious void in the urban grain and create a bold building that has a strong presence. The use of pale brick of varying colour shades creates a textured yet light envelope that references a number of local historic precedents. The intention was to create a lasting building of robust stature that would contribute strongly to the future evolution of the city in a positive way.
