University of Roehampton, Digby Stuart Student Residential, SW15 London, UK
Lee House, at Digby Stuart College, houses 140 en-suite student bedrooms in flats of eight or nine units over six levels. The facilities were also designed for use by conference delegates during vacation time.
The curved form of the building embraces the en-suite study bedrooms which overlook the college lawn. The support space and communal areas are articulated in towers along the outer perimeter of the building, facing the busy Roehampton Lane.
Whilst providing a sensitive response to the mature parkland setting, the design still incorporated a high level of off-site manufacturing for both the structure and cladding, with, in particular, bathroom pods delivered on site fully finished.
