The Costume Store


Berkeley First


Architectural Design


4500 sqft Ground Floor, Retail Space, Art Gallery, 750 Student Bedrooms

Project Description

CJCT were appointed by client Berkeley First to design a student housing scheme on the site of the former BBC Costume Store in the London Borough of Ealing. The site will be one of the first in the Park Royal Southern Gateway regeneration area to be redeveloped. The proposals will provide approximately 4500 sqft of ground floor retail space, an art gallery and 750 student bedrooms for the University of the Arts, London.
The final scheme design is an example of CJCT’s understanding of the planning process and the design has evolved as a result of listening and responding to comments from both the local planning authority and local people. CJCT worked closely with Ealing Council and the Greater London Authority to achieve an ambitious development, whilst creating a striking building to act as a focal point for the regeneration area.
