Thornbank Gardens Student Residence

DKA were executive architects under a design and build contract for this new student residence for Bath University. It is located on a sloping site near Bath city centre close to the railway station, and comprises 225 rooms with ensuite bathrooms, wardens’ flats and ancillary spaces. The building was designed as 4 blocks to align with contours of the steeply sloping site. DKA’s input into the technical design and construction process included special acoustic measures to combat noise from the nearby railway line.
