Brunel and Banksy make their mark on stylish new student homes

September 18, 2015

Work on Urban Creation’s latest new student accommodation hub, Tamarillo House, in Bristol, has now been completed, with its rooms named after a string of famous Bristolians.

From Brunel to Banksy, leading lights of Bristol are recognised in a nod to the city’s reputation as a hub of creativity and innovation, while reflecting Urban Creation’s own creative approach to development, which is focused on cleverly-designed space for students and professionals alike.

These stylish new homes are situated on the city’s popular Whiteladies Road, and cater for students looking for those added comforts after leaving their family home for the first time.

Combining modern luxury with the latest technology, Urban Creation has developed a fully-furnished “home from home” at Tamarillo House, a site formerly used by Maskrays furniture store.

The building features a range of high quality studios and clustered living spaces, so that tenants can live independently, but with the option to socialise when it suits them too.

Excellently located within easy walking distance of Bristol University, the development is just a stone’s throw from the vibrant selection of shops, bars and restaurants on Whiteladies Road as well as student hotspots on the Clifton Triangle and Park Street.

Jonathan Brecknell, director at Urban Creation, said: “Tamarillo House is the sort of place you’d be proud to show off to your new friends and your parents when they’re visiting. My experience in developing and managing properties in Bristol over the last 11 years has taught me that when living away from home, students want to feel comfortable, safe and secure. Our quality, stylish fittings offer that added bit of luxury,all within easy reach of the vibrant cultural and leisure hub of Bristol city centre.”

The apartments are finished to a high standard with granite kitchen worktops and stainless steel splashbacks, convenient smart storage, ample work space plus a flat screen TV and superfast broadband and all utility bills are included.
Tamarillo House also has strong environmental credentials featuring solar panels, FSC renewable materials, and special insulation.
