Home to over 1100 University of Southampton students, Mayflower Halls comprises three accommodation blocks ranging from 8-16 storeys tall defining the internal courtyard. The piazza design comprises a series of functional spaces and informal seating, graduating from a public thoroughfare to semi private area and private courtyard. The site’s pronounced slope offered a particular challenge in integrating the numerous block floor slabs into an accessible and part M compliant design for the piazza and building apron.
