Creating the perfect place for students to socialise, relax and study

Located in the heart of Sheffield city centre and a short distance from the university campus, Crown House provides first-class student accommodation and facilities with exquisite detail and finished to exacting standards.

Urban Green created an opulent external courtyard garden that offers the perfect place for students to revise, socialise with friends and enjoy the purpose-built alfresco area and open-sky cinema.

The design incorporated bold coloured raised planters with integrated seating, a vibrant planting scheme, alfresco dining and BBQ area.

Several technical delivery constraints were overcome including phasing the construction works around the main construction crane that was situated in the middle of the courtyard until late in the programme and the complexities of the drainage solutions and penetrations through the raised podium deck.

Crown House was named the 12th coolest student accommodations in the UK by mystudenthalls.com.
