Rich outdoor spaces surround the new student residences at Heriot Watt University

02/10/2017

A sequence of garden spaces connect the 400 new student rooms into the campus and form sheltered, sunny places ideal for catching up on life after a hard day in the lecture theatre. The paving doubles up as fire tender and service access, and is permeable; in combination with filter strips and swales, these control the volume and quality of run-off to help reduce flooding along the Murray Burn.
