Stapleton House, Islington

Completion Date August 2016

Contract Value £39.5m

Client The Unite Group / London Metropolitan University

Sitting opposite the London Metropolitan University campus on Holloway Road, the ten-storey Stapleton House scheme provides 862 study bedrooms for the Unite Group. Located between two conservation areas, ArchitecturePLB has created a building that visually and physically enhances the streetscape. Public realm provision has been substantially increased, and with the provision of community space and commercial units for local businesses on the ground floor, it will help continue the regeneration of the local area. The retention of existing mature trees further enhances the setting.

This project won Private Halls of Residence [London] of the Year at the Student Accommodation Awards 2017. It was also a finalist for the Award for Design Excellence at the Planning Awards 2017.
