Designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects, The 413 Bedroom Student Accommodation development is part of a wider mixed use urban regeneration project, including a new events centre, on the former Beamish and Crawford Brewery site in the historic medieval core of Cork city. Student Accommodation is provided in 4 linear blocks, in dual and triple aspect clusters of between 4 and 8 en-suite bedroom units, with generous shared kitchen, living and dining areas.
