A2 Dominion Housing Association

Affordable housing development with student accommodation (Yurky Cross, 2015).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAReplacing an older block on the site, this complex provides 42 one- and two-bedroom ‘affordable homes’ together with 82 rooms for foreign students studying at Bellerby’s College. A2 Dominion is a large social and affordable housing provider. Perhaps inevitably, the boldly coloured ‘statement’ elevation to Thames Street raised some eyebrows, but it has brought a contemporary urban aesthetic into a busy Oxford street.
