AKDN's Victoria Hall in King’s Cross wins 2017 Residential Architect Design Award

2017 Residential Architect Design Awards
Student Housing | Award

Victoria Hall is a 198-room student housing tower in the rapidly rebranding London district of King’s Cross, developed by a private development agency. Designed by local firm Stanton Williams, the structure consists of two 12-story wings connected by an eight-story volume, creating a sheltered courtyard atop the complex’s ground-floor plinth.

Inspired by the adobe architecture of the Middle East, the architects wanted to create a form that looked like it had been carved out of a sinlge block.
