[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Stock Woolstencroft has completed this 87-flat student accommodation scheme in Islington, north London, opposite Clissold Park
The £6.7 million Newington Court, development for the UNITE Group, comprises two blocks, which contain prefabricated modular apartments arranged around a central core. One brick-clad block, described as a ‘heavy, solid structure’, has been designed to respond to neighbouring Victorian villas.
Another ‘lighter’ block on the 0.15ha site is elevated and features a lattice-like steel mesh facade that, according to the practice, reflects the ‘weave of the surrounding treescape’.
