WilkinsonEyre has completed a new undergraduate village for the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET). The landscaped village of timber modular housing pods, with communal amenities and a central social and learning hub, is based within the Dyson Malmesbury Campus in Wiltshire.
As well as establishing a new typology in student accommodation, the project breaks new ground in the design, master-planning and precision engineering of truly modular prefabricated building technologies for rapid on-site construction.
The Dyson IET demonstrates a strong commitment to student wellbeing and sustainability while creating bold and beautiful architecture. Following the decision to teach and train undergraduate students within the campus, this new series of student accommodation allows undergraduates to live, work and learn on site alongside the Dyson Global Engineering Team.
Combining academic study and practical training, the project aims to improve engineering education within the UK and bridge the increasing skills gap. To mirror this unique student experience and Dyson's innovative approach to design, the residential pods are meticulously designed to create exceptional and forward-thinking student accommodation.
