Saunders Village Student Housing
Schedule: 52 weeks
Project value: $11.5 Million
Project period: Mar 2015 – Mar 2016
Completion date: Mar 2016
As part of an extensive plan to develop a new collage complex including a new chapel, independent student housing has been designed.
As Stage 1 in a 2 stage residential development, ‘Saunders Village’ is a 100 bed residential facility that replaces outdated housing stock with the tallest building at the low-scale tertiary campus. The building provides contemporary, flexible housing for a variety of student types, and utilises a highly repetitious and modular architectural style. ‘Saunders Village’ provides facilities that exceed Morling College’s requirements, allowing additional housing stock to be offered to Macquarie University and other surrounding entities, fostering ‘connection points’ that form part of the College’s vision. ‘Saunders Village’ is a distinctive residential building for the campus that addresses its programmatic and architectural context, and provides a facility of high quality.
