Karma House

Located at the northern edge of the Wembley Masterplan area, this 450-room student accommodation tower is designed to respond to Brent Council’s ambition to improve and increase the student accommodation offer in the area. The three stepped volumes have been designed to resolve the massing constraints set by the immediate context of low-scale light industrial development. Projecting oriels, combined with handing of rooms, create a rhythmic and textured facade. The scheme will be built using Donban’s Vision Modular System – a prefabricated volumetric construction system which combines pre-cast concrete floors and steel panels that can be erected at the rate of eight modules a day.
