Material resembling corrugated tin and 'porthole' style windows - These 'quirky' student homes in Cardiff.
The creation of 139 “quirky” new student homes has been approved for land at City Road in Cardiff’s Roath suburb despite concerns about the design. What was currently a car park housing temporary buildings at 21 to 27 City Road was removed and student accommodation – made up of 139 units – have been built in their place. The outside of the building is covered in a material described as something resembling corrugated tin. It has resulted in a wavy, textured finish made from a ‘sinusoidal’ profiled metal cladding. The design also includes “porthole” style windows on the outside. It's been described the design as “innovative” and another as “very quirky” and the way architecture should be. It should be different and make people think.
