Artist studios are located on the 1st and 2nd floors and are managed separately from the Student Accommodation.
The building is constructed on 112 piles with a reinforced concrete frame. The central core was constructed using slipform method which allows continuous pouring of concrete and quicker construction. The building is clad in brickwork to the lower levels and a terracotta unitised façade system from level 2. The façade is non-combustible and the building has sprinklers installed throughout.
