Nova provides stylish new student accommodation for Fusion Students in the centre of Nottingham
This new development, which we delivered for Fusion Students, provides stylish student accommodation totalling 437 beds in the centre of Nottingham, with several accommodation blocks, some up to eight storeys, built around a central courtyard.
Respecting the heritage of the area
The listed Art Deco frontage of Talbot House was retained in the scheme, while most of the old building and an adjacent derelict office building was demolished with new accommodation built.
By working closely with Nottingham Civic Society we have made sure our work does not impinge on the Canning Circus conservation area and that we sympathetically retained the front section, internal staircase and a stone wall dating back to 1852.
The finished accommodation provides 214 student accommodation apartments, including 74 studios, 110 two-bedroom apartments, and 40 clusters of three-to-six bedroom apartments.
There are also communal areas, laundry rooms, a reception and offices, a gym, and bike and rubbish storage areas.
The retained front area is used for a library, study and meeting spaces, and a ground-floor cafÃ© open to the public.
Developing a student quarter
The development is part of Nottingham's regeneration of Talbot Street, which will see the area become a "student quarter", with three other student accommodation buildings having been built there in recent years.
