Unite Student Housing, Angel Lane

Facts

Location Client Cost Completion
Stratford, London, UK Unite £24m 2015

Project details

The building houses 750 students in a garden courtyard city block with commercial space, student facilities, foyer and exhibition space.

The  garden is at the heart of the scheme, with the courtyard form opening up to the south.  The courtyard form steps up from south to north with a spine building of 14 storeys set along the north and railway side.

The building forms a ten storey identity point from Stratford’s Theatre Square. Student common spaces and a roof garden are set at the top of this corner point, with a panoramic view over the centre of Stratford and towards the Olympic Park.

The repetitive sequence of student room windows is broken by triple and double height groupings of living/dining rooms which animate the elevation.
