The client’s first student development, Lumis is designed to be efficient to operate with reduced running costs.
The layouts were refined to create room and cluster groups to promote socialisation, addresses student isolation and encouraging them to stay on.
The building envelope was designed to combat external noise and the materials were chosen to match the local surroundings, including the hard landscaping continuing seamlessly from the Cathedral.
The interiors have modern finishes, with inspiration from the former bus depot in the form of seats and fabrics reminiscent of bus seating. The shared amenity spaces provide an active frontage which is a showcase for the development.
Lumis is the redevelopment of a former city centre bus depot site in the historic heart of Leicester, close to the Cathedral.
The scheme of 558 student bedrooms are a mix of studios and clusters arranged in a group of four buildings set around a focal, shared courtyard.
The buildings range between four and six storeys, and incorporate the iconic former bus depot entrance arch. The development includes lounges, study areas, meeting rooms, a gym, cinema room, community kitchen and laundry.
