Weston Williamson completes Lewisham prefab student housing

  • 1 Comment

Weston Williamson + Partners has revealed this student housing which forms part of Lewisham Council’s town centre regeneration


The building, which opened its doors to students last month, has been built using 636 prefabricated modules arranged in two blocks.

This form of modular construction was used for everything above the ground floor accounting for 90 per cent of the building’s floor area.

According to the practice it is ‘one of the largest and most creative modern student accommodations to date’.
