Victoria Hall King’s Cross

The design for Victoria Hall aims to provide a stimulating and collegiate environment for its students. The building has been conceived as a form carved from a single block, creating two 12-storey ‘bookend’ wings above a ground floor plinth, flanking a central south-facing eight storey element set back from the street. Central to the building’s character are two courtyard gardens that have been designed with reference to Islamic gardens found in Spain, and courtyard gardens in Morocco, and provide generous communal spaces that allow opportunities for recreation and social interaction.
