This notice refers to the refurbishment of Astor College, an eight-storey student accommodation building, located on the northern end of Charlotte Street in the London Borough of Camden.
The existing building dates back to the 1970’s, with a significant utilitarian character. UCL have developed a proposal to maximise the number of bedrooms on site (from 231 to 290), whilst rationalising and improving the existing layout, resulting in a high specification building that will provide an improved standard of living and will better suit the needs of the residents and staff.
The key aspects of the scheme include:
— An eight storey extension to the rear housing ensuite study bedrooms in a double-loaded corridor arrangement.
— Building over the existing plinth at the front up to 1.5 — 2 storeys, in-line with the adjacent building (Sainsbury’s Wellcome Centre).
— Extending the recessed portion of the front elevation at floors 1 — 6 to unify the façade and increase the numbers of ensuite bedrooms.
— Activating the street and reinforcing the entrance and façade on to Charlotte Street.
— Addressing the existing bulk and mass of the building.
— Creating a new façade onto the adjacent street, Bedford Passage.
