Twin Student Blocks Planned In Lewisham

Two eleven-storey student blocks have been proposed in the London Borough of Lewisham to redevelop the existing Sherwood Court on Thurston Road.

Containing 142 apartments between them this translates into 410 student bedrooms plus shared communal facilities for each apartment that are aimed at students aged between 19 and 23. The ground floors of the buildings will have 569 square metres of commercial floor space whilst there are also 260 cycling spaces included and 4 car parking spots for the disabled.

The project, which will be clad in dark reflective brick with two tone recessed glazing, has been designed by WestonWilliamson Architects who have come up with two near identical blocks that have been reduced in height from 13 to 11 floors following consultations with locals concerned about the height. This means the height to parapet of both buildings is now roughly 36.4 metres.

The site sits in part of the area designated for the Lewisham Town Centre Regeneration with the Lewisham Gateway project situated to the immediate east. The project is set to fit in between this and the Gap Site that has yet to have a design revealed.
