Shortlisted in contest for Bristol’s Trinity College Student Village

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for Bristol’s Trinity College Student Village scheme. It would be a huge privilege to work for this historic theological college on what is an exciting collaboration between the college and Bristol Housing Festival.

Trinity College site development lead Malcolm Bourne said: ‘We were humbled by the amount of interest in our project and found ourselves envisioned and challenged by the proposals. By the submission deadline, we had received 33 proposals, all of which were of an extremely high standard. This was such a gift to the college, but it also presented a great challenge for us. We have had to make some very difficult decisions with many excellent proposals not making the shortlisting.’

The competition sought innovative proposals that harness modern methods of construction to create a ‘student village’ on a site within the grounds of the Grade II*-listed Stoke House in Bristol.

The project will deliver accommodation for up to 60 students in a mix of configurations including co-living units of between three and five bedrooms.

Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev Justin Welby said: “I am delighted that the Bristol Housing Festival has set out to work in collaboration across the city not only to innovate in new housing but critically to make the idea of healthy and resilient community the key foundation from which to build. This is an important initiative not only for Bristol, but for the country as we learn together”

Snug have been shortlisted down to the last five from 33 entries. We are now looking forward too engaging with the client team to develop and refine our proposals.
