nettletontribe are excited to announce the opening of our latest student accommodation project as part of the Australian National University master plan, Bruce & Wright Halls. Officially opened by Sir Peter Cosgrove for the 2019 semester one, the new Halls of residence will ultimately become a home away from home to 800 students, ensuring ongoing funding is provided for the ANU / Tuckwell Scholarship program.
Bruce and Wright Hall residents have a unique position on campus within the residential precinct of the University with direct access along University Avenue to the educational centre. The 800 rooms provided have been designed to accommodate flexibility and personalisation of living zones, allowing options for students to place beds and desks in alternative arrangements to suit. Rather unconventionally, all rooms are provided with external balconies, large sliding doors to each room permit an abundance of natural light and natural ventilation which elevates the living experience of the student. The courtyard building typology ensures all students have a significant green space and landscaped view, views over the campus and to Black Mountain.
nettletontribe were commissioned by the Australian National University (ANU) to develop plans for an on-campus student accommodation precinct to be funded by a $100 million philanthropic contribution from Graham and Louise Tuckwell.
