Papdale Halls of Residence


A new seventy bed accommodation, the halls will provide a “home from home” for students at Kirkwall Grammar School whose home is on the remote outlaying islands.


Social spaces have been designed to be flexible with two segregated blocks of male and female accommodation interlinked by communal facilities, whilst the private external garden offers residents outdoor relaxation space. Sustainability and utilisation of renewable energy were a key design consideration with 50% of the energy load being provided from renewable energy sources.
