King Edwards Quay
Location: Colchester, Essex
The town of Colchester in Essex is the home of Essex University. Accordingly the University requires accommodation for a vast number of students. The proposal addresses this with a new development on King Edwards Quay, a site at the heart of Colchester Councils regeneration plan.
The scheme houses 764 students, shops, a bar as well as the creation of public communal amenity space. The buildings seek to provide active frontages, encourage pedestrian routes, enhance the public realm and create a welcoming space for residents and visitors to enjoy!
