Jury unanimous in selecting architect's student residence scheme from shortlist of six

Page\Park has won a competition to design new residences for 500 students at the University of Warwick.

The group beat five other teams shortlisted for the design phase: Fraser Brown MacKenna, David Morley Architects, Richard Murphy Architects, Schmidt Hammer Lassen and Stanton Williams.

The shortlisted firms were invited to prepare concept design proposals for the first phase of residences, with a target of 500 study/bedrooms, within a site close to Rootes Residences.

The jury panel praised the quality and diversity of the proposals, but were unanimous in selecting Page\Park as the winner.

They said that Page\Park's scheme best fit the operational needs of the project and offered the best relationship between the built development and landscape.
