Urbanest Student Accommodation, Chippendale, Australia

Beds abundant, sleeping optional.

Pure Projects revisited its student days in providing project management for the design and construction of the 400 bed Urbanest student accommodation in the inner city Sydney suburb of Chippendale.

It was a wonderful project. These distinctive buildings, located moments from Sydney’s University of Technology, incorporate green initiatives while responding to the heritage elements of the existing site.


Urbanest comprises five buildings surrounding two courtyards that cover approximately 15,000 square metres. In keeping with its inner city location and student vibe, the development has recreation areas as well as providing secure parking for 86 bicycles and 30 motorcycles.
