International House

International House, Central Birmingham

In 2018 two of our student housing schemes opened for Unite Students. One in Portsmouth, and this one in Birmingham.

The scheme provides over 500 student beds in a development close to the two main Birmingham Universities.

The design is driven by the unusual site conditions as well as a desire to express the heating and cooling of the industrial process for which Birmingham is famous, as a metaphor for the university experience.

The cool metallic facade therefore is animated by a fiery dash of colour which leaps from the face of the building in metal fins.

The building is strong on amenity space with a large choice of different internal and external spaces at ground and roof level
