Scape Greenwich

Greenwich, London. 2014

  • Project Details
  • Completion: 2014
  • Cost: £16.5 Million
  • Clients: Event Investments

Commissioned to respond to the accommodation needs of Ravensbourne College of Design, Scape Greenwich offers 280 student rooms within the Greenwich Peninsula. The building champions offsite manufacture, using repetition to maximise both character and construction efficiency. Two nine-storey, vaulted-topped blocks sit above an open-plan podium whose street edges are configured to cater for exhibition opportunities. The building’s massing – split in two to enable light penetration – is stepped in plan to strengthen the curve of Chandlers Ave and open up to the green space of East Parkside across the road. Crisp, precast concrete panels with large, integrated windows define the elevations whilst expressing both the room modulation and a strong identity for the corner site. Inside, the student rooms are complemented by multi-functional space for social gathering on the ground floor and breakout spaces for individual or group studying on the upper levels.

Scape Greenwich, AHMM’s new student accommodation on the Greenwich Peninsula, welcomed its first residents last month, many of whom joined in the celebrations at the official welcome party last week. With 280 student rooms, study spaces, communal areas and large shared balconies, the new development is walking distance from Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication.
