‘We are excited about bringing the best of education and residential design to the University of Queensland. Wilson Architects’ extensive experience in education design will be highly complemented by Timothy Hill’s exemplary residential projects,’ said Hamilton Wilson, Managing Director, Wilson Architects. 

The team has a unique combination of expertise in designing for both ‘living and learning’.

The Student Residences Project will deliver quality, affordable, self-catered accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Accommodation will include single rooms in eight to twelve bedroom cluster apartments, and self-contained studio apartments. In addition, there will be shared laundry, social and recreation areas, academic support space, bicycle storage and limited car parking.

‘We are privileged to be engaged by such a sophisticated client,’ said Timothy Hill, Managing Director, Partners Hill. ‘UQ’s brief calls for a complete and life enhancing environment reaching way beyond just stashing students in en-suited cells. I hope their far sightedness will likely, over the decades, eventuate in a very loyal alumni and some smart citizens. Expectations are high all round.’
