Student Village, The University of East LondonEdit profile
FraserBrownMackenna acted as lead design consultants for this £31m student village in the London Docklands. As a major development in an Olympic Borough occupying a critical site along the dock edge, the design process involved close liaison with London Borough of Newham and the Mayor’s Architecture & Urbanism Unit and also passed detailed scrutiny by CABE’s Design Review panel. The scheme provides 800 student rooms arranged in five seven-storey blocks oriented north-south, with three three-storey link blocks connecting east-west. Rooms are grouped into cluster flats, each with a shared kitchen providing views across the Royal Albert Dock or across the campus.
