University of the Arts London

Hollybrook acquired and worked alongside the University of Arts to obtain planning permission for this development of student accommodation and an educational campus in Camberwell, South London.

The site is located in trendy and vibrant Camberwell, where there is an array of coffee shops, bars and restaurants and green spaces.

The development consists of 264 student bedrooms, a work zone and common room facilities for the students, basement energy centre, courtyard for outside art exhibitions space and a striking building with triple height basement lecture theatre and 68,000 sq. ft. of new academic space which connects to their existing 1960’s building fronting onto Peckham Road.

The former self storage warehouse site, was logistically demanding with the university fully operational during the entire construction process. With the use of modular and precast building methods this assisted in Hollybrook’s efforts to accelerate the programme, reduce disruption to UAL and our neighbours whilst maintaining our demanding high-quality standards.
