The Lawns, Halls of Residence, University of Hull
Date of Completion: 1968
Present state/use: Only six of the planned twelve blocks and a reduced scale centre building were finally built, and despite numerous attempts to restart the project over the next ten years or so, funding to carry on the work was never awarded by the appropriate government body.
Still in use as halls of residence in 2007 and undergoing a refurbishment programme by Gammond Evans Crichton architects, which will be completed by 2009.
Some bedspaces have been converted to kitchen and dining spaces; in Morgan and Downs double rooms in 3 halls have been converted to singles, and bedrooms in 3 blocks of Reckitt have already been converted to en-suite.
Address: University of Hull, Cottingham, Kingston-upon-Hull, England
