Allies and Morrison’s Cranmer Road Student Housing at the King’s College, in Cambridge, is named CFCI Sustainability and Engineering Award winner.

The ultra-low energy Passivhaus standard student accommodation recently completed at the King’s College, in Cambridge, United Kingdom, provides 59 additional graduate students bedrooms.

Allies and Morrison’s design includes two new architecturally distinct buildings:

  • a linear garden building with glazed terracotta cladding and green roof;
  • the Cranmer Villa building that features red brick walls and clay roof tiles recalling the neighbouring buildings, as well as exposed cross-laminated slabs.

The elegant development is designed to achieve Passivhaus outstanding energy performance requirements as well as a to provide healthy indoor spaces for the students. This was achieved thanks to the skills and experience of Max Fordham which is the MEP and Passivhaus Consultant.
