Nido Bryggen was developed in response to the demand for a higher quality ‘living experience’ for students in Europe. It’s a 16,500 sqm PBSA with 443 rooms and 600 sqm area for communal spaces. In line with Nido’s brand values we designed with modern-living and wellbeing in mind. The result is inspired by the local context and operationally future-proofed. The building has outdoor space with a courtyard, fully fitted communal terraces and a herb garden. There are also fitness facilities and a wellness room. Following Biophilic Principles, we created feature walls made of preserved plants which are easy to maintain, have a high visual impact and a real smell of nature. The studios are equipped with mini kitchens to guarantee independence. Additionally, every resident has access to communal kitchens on each floor and a bookable Private Dining Room (PDR) in the amenity spaces for parties with friends or cooking workshops organised by the operator. There are also 5 thematic communal lounges (entrance lounge, TV lounge, servery lounge, quiet lounge, games lounge) as well as a cinema room, laundry and gaming nook.
