Lee Point Student Accommodation wins at RIAI Architecture Awards 2021


Lee Point Student Accommodation wins award in the 'Living' category at RIAI Architecture Awards 2021

We are thrilled that Lee Point Student Accommodation has been named amongst the winners of the 'Living' category in this year's RIAI Architecture Awards. A very strong citation from the Jury demonstrates our commitment to exemplary architecture in an urban regeneration context.

"This student housing project successfully improves and re-imagines a building type that has become generic and formulaic in recent years. The Jury was impressed with how the scheme relates to the river, its wider urban context in terms of permeability, scale, form, and materiality. The removal of the cores from the building and the creation of generous glazed links is also central to the success creating an architectural event out what are usually dark internal corridors. The use of these devices did not come at the expense of density or efficiency as the design solution maximises the potential of an important site which is part of a wider urban regeneration plan."- Jury citation
