Entry Description

Benedict’s Gate develops the airspace above a prominent car park site on a historic gateway into Norwich city centre to provide 302 student rooms and associated communal spaces. The site completes the urban block and provides an ideal location for student housing, within easy walking distance of the nearby universities.

The scheme provides a proper urban edge that responds to the historic importance of the place, fills a significant urban void in the area, and employs high quality materials to deliver a robust and attractive building, which has a strong presence in the city.
