Blackburn Road Student Accomodation
Located in the London Borough of Camden, the Blackburn Road scheme exemplifies efficient use of a disused brownfield site which was not ideally suited to permanent residential use.
The site is one of the first in the West Hampstead Interchange area to be redeveloped and provides approximately 23,000 sqft of new flexible employment space and 350 student bedrooms in a car free environment.
EH Smith were called on to advise on suitable brick choices for the project to meet the crisp, modern aesthetic within the allocated budget. Contrasting facades of the engobed blue multi and the red wirecut bricks coupled with the colourful window openings give this project a striking, vibrant feel.
