Proposals for student accommodation and a conference suite at the University of Roehampton in South London have been submitted for planning. The MJP designed building provides rooms for nearly 400 students and conference guests at the heart of the University’s campus.
The aim of the design is to provide
high quality accommodation that
will attract students and visitors
and enhance their experience of
the University, giving them a sense
that they are a part of the University
The development is planned around courtyard quadrangles of a collegiate scale and character and uses traditional materials including brick and high-quality precast concrete within a modern architectural language.
In conjunction with a new Library building designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studio, the development will provide a new ‘centre of gravity’ for the Campus and greatly enhance the image of the University from Roehampton Lane. The proposals are part of the University’s 2025 Masterplan, which has also been developed by MJP Architects.
