Student Housing Development

Aspire House is a high quality student housing led mixed use development in Plymouth City Centre completed in 2017 with an associated landscape and public realm scheme complete in 2018.   71 bedrooms in a variety of formats (studios, cluster beds and demi-apartments) as well as a two storey Cat A commercial letting space are included.   The building is a conversion and four storey extension to an existing retail building which occupied the site since the 1960's. The original building included precast concrete cladding panels over a steel frame. The shell was stripped back and along with extensive internal groundworks was extended to include 71,000 sq ft of residential space and 4,000 sq ft of commercial space. Hand Drawn Home's services included Architecture, Principal Designer and CGI illustration to assist with the marketing and pre-let of the student space. As a result the development was 100% pre-let prior to its opening in 2017.
