Student housing Uppsala

Rooms with more than a view

Close to the forest at the outskirts of Uppsala, the triangular residential complex ‘Inspiration Rosendal’ holds 350 designed one-room-apartments, which offers light airy homes for the city’s youth. The apartments all have loft-sleeping spaces due to the extra ceiling height, panoramic windows and balconies, all creating open and comfortable living quarters with generous amounts of daylight. Despite the fairly small sizes, the apartments’ extra ceiling height creates spacious accommodations, which all have access to the central communal roof. Here green recreational spaces are mixed with activity spaces, a basketball court and a running track with grand views of the city and surrounding nature. A fitness centre spirals up through the building, connecting the entire house from the communal roof to the street level facilities, which includes a café, a restaurant and a supermarket. Inside the triangular building, a small open courtyard ensures that each apartment has more than one source of daylight as well as an inner area for social activities. Below the building, the basement has parking spaces for cars and more than 400 bike cycles.
