Squire & Partners wins permission for student homes inside roundabout

  • Comment

Ealing Council has given permission to Squire & Partners for a student accommodation building of up to 13 storeys in the middle of the Hangar Lane gyratory system in west London

The block, for provider Stay Club, comprises two nine-storey towers and a 13-storey one, linked by two seven-storey elements to provide 565 student rooms.

It will also include classrooms, study areas, social spaces, a bike store, a gym, shops and private and public gardens.

A statement from the practice said: ‘Angled precast stone elements give solidity and movement to the façade, while green metal infill panels provide richness and texture.’

It said the design had been influenced by the local area’s Art Deco heritage, which includes the nearby Wallis, Gilbert & Partners’ Hoover Building, completed in 1931.

A variety of new trees, as well as hard and soft landscaping, will shield the ground-floor area from the surrounding roads.

A report from council officers said: ‘The architecture and materials are considered high quality and would result in an attractive development for this prominent site within the A40 gyratory.

‘The character and appearance of the area would change. but it is not considered this would result in any harm.’

The scheme was approved by councillors at London Borough of Ealing at a meeting on Wednesday evening.
