Victoria Hall King's Cross wins RIBA National Award

We are thrilled that Victoria Hall King's Cross has won an RIBA National Award. This follows the project's RIBA London Awards win in May.

Ours was among 49 projects across the UK awarded for architectural excellence.

The RIBA said of the project: "The architect has raised the bar for the design quality of student residences where the immaculate detailing and high quality, natural finishes convey a sense of permanence as well as reference both the adobe architecture of the Middle East and the industrial heritage of King’s Cross."

Our design for Victoria Hall draws reference from the solidity of the adobe architecture of the Middle East and aims to provide a stimulating and collegiate environment for its students – predominantly postgraduates of Aga Khan University's Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations and the Institute for Ismaili Studies.
