St Georges Close, Sheffield

Containing a total of 257 student accommodation units, Knight House contains a mix of studios and clusters, both ensuite and shared. Designed by 74Architects for iQ Student Living, the 18 storey scheme achieved planning consent in August 2017 and started on site in January 2018 and will be complete for the new student intake in September 2019.

Cunniff Design were introduced to iQ by 74A from RIBA Stage 3 to undertake the technical development and delivery on site to completion. We are fully utilising our Revit capabilities to ensure a seamless collaborative approach between the disciplines.

The striking design comprises a podium - which responds in mass and scale to the immediate buildings - and a tower which will become a prominent landmark along Netherthorpe Road. The simple pallete of brick and brass cladding make this a cool and confident addition to the Sheffield skyline.
