Living

Making a home. 
Whether designing student housing or crafting a bespoke family home, understanding the needs of those who will live in that space is imperative. On an urban scale, purpose build student accommodation is rapidly changing how many of our cities and towns look and function. As architects, we play a vital role in determining the future of how people live. 

We have delivered residential projects across a number of sectors from University accommodation, appartments, social housing to private one off houses.

Within the higher education sector, our student accommodation ranges from new builds, using traditional and modern construction methods, through to the careful refurbishment of listed buildings in historic college settings. We have also upgraded several 20th century buildings, often designed by renowed architects, making them fit for modern student living. 

Our residential work is contemporary, refined and elegant. If you would like to know more about our work in this sector, please email Director, James Roach:
"BGS were the architects on our home renovation and extension in central Oxford. Their attention to detail and high standards throughout the project delivered us a home that is more beautiful than our aspirations set out for, and generated real joy in our family."
