James Cook University Student Accomodation
Cairns, QLD James Cook University Student Accomodation
ADCO delivered the design and construction of the student accommodation precinct for James Cook University (JCU) in Cairns.
JCU required a residential development which delivered a student experience, active living, quiet study/sleeping spaces, as well as meeting the design requirements for living in the tropics.
The Cairns development was a greenfield site, with design allowing for future expansion. The building provides 300 beds across seven storeys.
Twenty-five percent of the rooms are single occupancy apartments, with the remaining dwellings designed as six-bedroom communal living spaces, which include a shared lounge, kitchen, dining room, and bathrooms.
The ground floor internal landscape will be open to the public, with 24-hour accessibility. The student-exclusive recreation areas on other floors include communal lounges, study areas, a gymnasium, music rooms and roof terraces.
