CZWG granted approval for Finsbury Park student scheme

Piers Gough CZWG Architects proposal for a £21 million student accommodation scheme in Finsbury Park, north London has received planning approval

The design in Isledon Road features 400 student apartments in a 5-storey building located opposite the famous Art Deco cinema, formerly known as the Rainbow Theatre.

The London Borough of Islington approved the scheme despite criticism from CABE in its latest design review, which said the ‘muted and discontinuous treatment of the horizontal banding’, weakened the original design.

‘We recommend that the local authority requests that further material addressing our concerns is submitted before the application is determined,’ said the review.
