Designed and developed as a purpose-built, dedicated student accommodation residence in the heart of Brisbane’s city centre, Student One on Adelaide Street is the first of three student accommodation residences to be completed within the next three years in Brisbane by Student One.

Student One on Adelaide Street has breathed new life into a 15-storey commercial block first built in 1985, with a $110m redevelopment of what was formerly known as Boeing House, to create a 687-bed student-centric environment.

The student accommodation provider’s very first residence was a collaborative project, working with Brisbane City Council to fast-track the repurposing of the former commercial tower into Brisbane’s premium student accommodation within an 18-month timeframe, to ensure the new residence was opened in time for the Semester Two student intake.

The key objective was to design and deliver a residence that reflected a diversity of student needs and which appealed to both a domestic and international student resident.

The single, twin studio and five-bedroom apartment types were designed to provide for the modern student’s demands for spacious room layouts offering privacy, wired and wireless technology, as well as shared common spaces such as gymnasiums, games rooms, breakout spaces, communal kitchen and bbq areas, group study spaces and a cinema room.

Retail spaces on the ground level also provide students with grocery, food and beverage options day and night.

Re-purposing an existing commercial building has had many benefits. For this project, it allowed for a generous public lobby space, creating a large, open area with natural light on one city corner and space for students to feel like they’re a part of the city’s community.

The building is a welcoming, vibrant place for students to live, study and play. Detailed screen and facade elements wrap the two major street frontages and defines the new identity of the building.
Brand-aligned colours, vibrancy and warmth were introduced into common areas using carpets, feature lighting, joinery and soft furnishings.

Student One on Adelaide Street consists of 359 air-conditioned apartments and studios, providing 687 beds and additional facilities including:

• 24-hour resident support team
• Flexible learning areas
• Meeting rooms
• Media room
• Multi-purpose spaces
• Communal kitchen and BBQ area
• Free unlimited wired and wireless internet
• Free bicycles
• Landscaped forecourt and seating
• Games room and lounge
• Gym
