Dorset Point Student Accommodation
Client: Hines UK
Architect: HJ Lyons
Dorset Point, a six-storey mixed-use development, provides accommodation for 447 students, associated management suite, student common areas, gymnasium, and retail spaces. The development of this underutilised brownfield urban site provided a significant opportunity to aid in the area’s regeneration along with providing essential student accommodation in Dublin.
The student bed spaces are arranged over 102 clusters in 5 blocks. The various blocks ranged from 3 to 6 floors above ground and basement plant room below. The blocks were set around internal court yards with selected hard and soft landscaping.
