Pennine House

Student accomodation in the heart of Leeds


rpa:group were responsible for the architectural consultancy for this mixed use scheme, located in the heart of Leeds city centre’s restaurant district.


The project comprised the re-purposing of an eight story 1970’s office block along with an additional floor. The building delivered 127 bedrooms comprising large studios and duo apartments. The building was re-clad on both facades, whilst maintaining the original window rhythm. The basement has been fully utilised for a student gym, cinema, lounge and work rooms. The ground floor forms a self contained restaurant unit, which is occupied by a high end restauranteur.


The project was handed over on time for the academic year and has brought back to life a tired city centre building and contributed to the vibrant Leeds city centre scene.
