About the project
Howard Gardens is a new 671-bed student apartment scheme for Cardiff Metropolitan University. In a highly competitive sector, the high quality of accommodation on offer is critical and communal facilities – both indoors and out – have been provided for the students.
A key aspect of the project was the provision of extensive external areas and the resulting courtyard allows students using the communal areas to spill outside. A muted materials palette for the new buildings of red brick, coursed rubble, and seamed metal is perfectly complemented by the products and colours specified within the landscape. RAL8023 Orange Brown complements these materials perfectly.
