Inspired by the rich brickwork of its surrounds, nettletontribe’s latest student accommodation for UniLodge delivers a sophisticated architectural design response to complement the university precinct in Melbourne. The development offers a vibrant living environment for students by showcasing its diverse communal areas and celebrating the quality of each self-catered studio room.
UniLodge Royal Melbourne aims to provide affordable accommodation to students without sacrificing a social lifestyle. This is achieved by facilitating spontaneous student interactions within the larger communal areas through clever design considerations. Smaller break-out lounges near the lifts encourage chance encounters and the four-storey void enhances inter-connectivity between the levels.
Stefanie Stoelen, Project Architect describes the architectural outcome as having a distinct identifiable presence which enriches the Wreckyn Street streetscape.
“Each building wing offers full-height glazing with unique architectural characteristics and this variety in the façade brings movement and depth to these edges. The textured materiality of the brickwork is articulated to provide interest and warmth and these elements combined showcase the student activity externally as well as elevating the experience from within the room”.
With the realisation of UniLodge Royal Melbourne, nettletontribe sets a new benchmark for quality student accommodation and the living experience within.
