Compass Student Accommodation - EH Smith

Compass Student Accommodation


This new student accommodation development provides high-quality studio apartments and state-of-the-art amenities a short walk away from both Birmingham City University and Aston University.

The design carefully considers the neighbouring HS2 station with a low-level blue brickwork podium that references the local railway vernacular; and a profiled metallic façade articulates the dynamic trapezoidal form of the tower element. The development is completed by a blue brick accommodation wing which reinforces the urban grain of this corner plot site.
