Work has been completed on transforming part of an unused building in Worcester into boutique student accommodation.

Dorset-based developers Stannary Solutions have teamed up with IKEA to refurbish Farrier House, creating 69 en-suite student rooms.

The development comes equipped with two cinema rooms, a cafe, free laundry facilities, double kitchens at the end of each floor, and six rooms for wheelchair users.

The site will retain its doctor's surgery on the ground floor, however the scheme now features a landscaped rooftop terrace offering seating with views overlooking the city centre.

Commenting on the development, Steve Emson, of Farrier House, said: "The is way out in front of other student accommodation in Worcester in terms of quality and what is on offer to the students.

"Hopefully this will have a knock-on effect for all other student accommodation to improve and help encourage more students to Worcester and build what is a fantastic city to live and work in."
