Welford Road, Leicester

This development of student accommodation at Reynard House in Leicester, seeks full planning permission for Student accommodation providing 287 bedrooms, a communal area and associated ancillary facilities. We have been working closely with Study Inn, student housing providers and Cerda Planning consultants to bring the right tone of design to the existing building on the site - Reynard House; now redundant, was previously used as an office. Keeping as much as possible of the existing structure; the design of the building draws on the character and quality of the adjacent historic shoe & boot factory. The building is characterised by a striking brickwork facade with regular window openings, detailed window reveal surrounds with keystone hoods and horizontal contrasting stone string courses. The windows are vertical in proportion and the eaves line is exaggerated with stonework detailing arching over the top level windows. The roof is steeply pitched and visible from the street adding to the building’s mass. At street level the windows are taller, and railings are set in the openings over small pavement lights to the lower levels.
